I use this King Size Sharpie for so many things. The beginning of the school year is when my Sharpie gets the most use. I have to write my kids names on every item they are taking to school. It can get quite tedious but I know that with this king size one there is no mistaking their names. I especially love using this to write my kids names on their backpacks and on their coats. The thickness of the marker allows to me largely print their name clearly for all to see. (of course it is written on the inside). This is a perfect household marker as well. I own my own business and this comes in handy like you wouldn't believe during labeling things and sorting paperwork and everything in between. I have never had a problem with it drying out or anything until it is used up. They last quite a while so there is no need to buy any other markers or backups. (unless you need several). My only issue with these is that I have never seen them in any other color ever. I have no idea if they even come in other colors but it would be great if they did.
