In 1964, the Sanford Company introduced the first permanent marker that would write on anything – paper, stone, plastic, leather, even glass. Little did they know that Sharpies would catch the attention of celebrities who would use them to sign hats, T-shirts, jackets, coffee cups – anything!
In fact, when Terrell Owens, a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, caught a 37-yard pass for what was the game-winning touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks in October 2002, the receiver pulled a Sharpie out of his sock, autographed the ball, and presented the ball to his business agent. The Sharpie itself later sold at a sports memorabilia auction for $3,654.32.
The Sharpie business boomed!
President George W Bush preferred Sharpies over any other writing instrument and had special Sharpies made up with his signature and the words ‘The White House’ embossed on the marker barrel.
Sharpies now come in all the colors of the rainbow with every type of tip you can imagine – from the original Fine Point Tip to the sculptured Chisel Tip. And guess what…
