New Sharpie® Chisel Tip Aims To Change How You Use Your Sharpie®

Jan 25, 2002

Bellwood, Ill. - January 25, 2002 - "How do you use your Sharpie?" The answer - it's changing. Sharpie, the world's most popular fine point marker, introduces its first Chisel Tip allowing individuals to make a variety of line widths using a single versatile permanent marker. The marker's wedge-shaped point, better known as a 'chisel,' offers both broad line and, when held sideways, fine line capabilities.

"Whether you're making posters, labeling cardboard boxes or marking a measurement, the Sharpie Chisel Tip is great for school or home projects," said Bob Daenen, senior brand manager for Sharpie. "The chisel tip is durable and marks on virtually any surface, like cardboard, wood, metal, glass, and of course, paper."

In addition to broad or fine line capabilities, the new Sharpie Chisel Tip features a sturdy clip, so it fits comfortably in a pocket. In addition, its ergonomically designed oval shape improves control and eliminates roll.

Sharpie Chisel Tip markers come in four permanent, non-toxic (AP seal of approval) and waterproof colors: black, red, blue and green. They are available in one-, two-, three- and four-packs.

The Sharpie brand of permanent markers, invented in 1963, now includes new Sharpie Chisel Tip; Liquid Fine Point Sharpie; Sharpie Twin Tip; Super Sharpie; Sharpie Fine Point; Sharpie Extra-Fine Point and Sharpie Ultra-Fine Point.
