Since turning their focus to markers 50 years ago Sharpie have produced markers for a range of uses. The Sharpie Professional is a permanent marker that apparently lasts 50% longer than standard Sharpies.
I have a Sharpie Professional Marker in black. The grey plastic barrel has yellow rubberised inserts which make for a non slip grip & the oval shaped design of the cap & barrel mean they won’t roll of working surfaces. There are 3 small raised squares positioned either side of the cap. These are in line with the yellow rubber section & make it easy to remove the cap if wearing gloves.
These markers have a versatile chisel tip that writes a 1.5 & 5.3mm line width. Designed for professional use, these Sharpies work on most surfaces & are suited to rough conditions so I’d expect to find them in action in warehouses or on building sites.
- Can be used on wet, oily & non porous surfaces
- Water & fade resistant
- Last 50% longer than standard markers
- Quick drying ink
- Oval shaped barrel
- Cap is easy to remove
- Non Toxic
This Sharpie may last 50% longer than standard markers but you can actually rehydrate a Sharpie with ethanol alcohol to spring them back into life.
I usually like to add a written sample in the reviews but found it a bit difficult on this occasion. As I doodled I noticed that the ink did bleed through several pages, but as they’re designed for more heavy duty work I doubt that will be an issue for most users. Also, I assume that like other Sharpies it will fade over time.
