Permanent markers boost presentations
Everyone can relate to the presentation that seemed to drag on, with words and graphics that didn't generate any excitement. Using permanent markers to emphasize points, however, keeps the focus on the information, and makes it more interesting. Sharpie markers retain a strong resistance to fading and have tip options that range from broad to extra-fine and chisel, so you can always create the perfect stroke. Although most of them are waterproof, some are acrylic-based implements that you can dilute to produce certain artistic effects. Additional options include those made from post-consumer recycled materials, markers with refillable inks, products that are nontoxic, and pens with low to no odor.
Sharpie markers inspire ideas for customized items
Whether you stock up on multipacks of Sharpie pens or put together your own array from individual colors, remember that you can use them on many different types of materials aside from card and paper, including canvas totes and tea towels. Customized items are great for marketing and make terrific gift ideas for employees, clients, customers, and charity auctions.
