Fueled by the scent of rubber shavings....

I got a cheap box from a local supplier, but the problem is that it's too plain.  It looks like it's just made from regular old plastic.  I'm worried that the Sharpie would rub off on my bag - my bento travels in the bottom of my knapsack.  (And the fact that I hand wash everything in my bento box.)

(The sharpie drawings will be on top, just the lid.)

From what I have experienced, Sharpie does tend to wear off when applied to smooth plastic surfaces.  I can make a mess of other more porous objects too.  Sad       

Maybe you could try putting some sort of clear coat protector over it after drawing?

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
