The firm we recognise now as &lsquo\;Sharpie&rsquo\; once established themselves as Sanford manufacturing company in Worcester, Massachusetts as early as 1857. It wasn&rsquo\;t until the mid-1960s that they applied themselves to the emerging marker business and first introduced the Sharpie marker that we are so familiar with today. With the addition of &lsquo\;extra fine&rsquo\; and &lsquo\;ultra fine&rsquo\; tip pens in the late seventies and eighties, the Sharpie marker became the first marker to write like a pen. The immediate benefit of the Sharpie was its ability to write on almost any surface from glass, wood and stone to plastic, metal and of course, paper.Today, Sharpie is a brand which stands for self-expression, encouraging you to express your thoughts and ideas with absolute conviction and passion. The firm continues to enhance their range with the introduction of fresh products like the liquid pencil, gel highlighter and by increasing the spectrum of colours up to 24. As one of the most instantly recognisable brands in stationery, Sharpie offer you the reliable writing tools you need for any daily task or creative project including personalising glass jars, creating custom labels and producing unique banners for shop fronts.
