I bought two Sharpie keychains (one in aqua, one in fuschia), and somehow now I am left with two keychains with Sharpie caps attached.  I don't know where the markers went... I just hope I don't find that they've marked up a bunch of my stuff. 

We need to petition the Sharpie company to make these with twist-off caps or something, so that they don't pop off on their own, because other than that it's a brilliant idea.  I had one attached to my gig bag because half the time my band will get to a gig and realize that we forgot to bring setlists.

Sharpies are valueable!  How about combination lock caps!

Pardon my rant: I hate the Sharpie minis because they're too small for comfortable writing.  All the ads show folks writing with the cap neatly sitting on the end of the barrel.  It's a lie! A lie, I tell you!  Those caps won't even pretend to stay on the end of the barrel and then the barrel is too short to rest on the web of your hand.  I emailed Sharpie and voiced my displeasure but I never heard a peep from them.  Don't get me wrong, I love full-size Sharpies, just not the little ones!

Thanks.  I feel better now.  Smiley

My friend found an aqua-ish sharpie mini the other day and he gave it to me.  I have it clipped to a safety pin which is on my belt loop.  So far I haven't had any problems with it.

But when you write with your Sharpie mini, do you leave the cap pinned to your pants?  If so, do you have tiny hands?  When I hold the mini sans cap and don't park the cap on the other end, it barely touches the web of my hand.  If I do park the cap on the other end, the dang thing slips right off.   Angry  They're cute as the Dickens, but they are about useless for writing -- unless you have tiny hands.

I, living in NZ, once saw a pack of 15 sharpies in all different colours for $3.37. Wow, I'm a real butt for not buying them. In my defense, at the time I didn't know what they were. But this weekend I'm revisiting that shop, and if I find any y'all will be the first to know.

So, any more uses for them? At the top of my list (for when I ACTUALLY get any) will be...
-Doodling hearts on my clothes
-Fixing people's grammatical errors on menus, posters, shop signs and the likes. Grr.
-Um... graffiting the bathroom walls at school?? Need... more... reasons...

ahh foo!

i need to modify my original post with the key chain, as it has alas, gone missing! sigh! it un-snapped right out of the little snappie thing. my advice- get some super glue and gob it in the little cap so the big cap will stay in there.

as for uses- they're good for blacking out parts of doucuments you don't want seen (i think the feds use them for this) they're good for rock and roll star's autographs, i sign the back of my credit cards with them, they make good temprorary tattoos, and if you can score some of the really fine pointed ones, they are good for regular letter writing and mock ups and project proofs and things like that.

well, and of course there's graffitti. only the can of spray paint is more dependable for that! (but i do not condone graffitti)

I would say I use a sharpie of some sorts almost daily.
Black mostly, unless I'm writing on a CD-R, then I tend to use colors.
I <3 sharpie paint pens. They're so expensive though Embarrassed $8.99 for a 3 pack is a bit high, but I have 6 of them, so obviously I still gave in to the price tag.
