Sanford Corporation/Sharpie

Much like Kleenex and Xerox brands, the name Sharpie has now turned into one of those brand names that people use as a generic name for an item, and in this case, permanent markers. Wildly popular and rightfully so, Sharpie is “the bold original, genuine article, and cultural icon of permanent markers.”

Back in 1857, Frederick W. Redington and William H. Sanford, Jr. founded Sanford Manufacturing Company in Worcester, Massachusetts. The company focused on producing and selling ink and glue. By 1866 the company relocated to Chicago after expanding. In 1927, the company commissioned Norman Rockwell to create a painting used for advertising Sanford’s Ink. In 1940, the company changed its name to Sanford Ink Company. It was not until 1964 that Sanford introduced the first fine-point black Sharpie permanent marker which wrote on almost any surface from glass, wood and stone, to plastic, metal and paper. The company introduced a new style tip maker called the Sharpie Extra Fine Point marker in 1979. Sharpie continually climbed the popularity charts in 1990’s with the boom of the memorabilia industry using Sharpies for autographs on posters, trading cards, balls and sports jerseys. From 1997-2002, five different Sharpie markers made their debut along with a variety of new colors. By the end of 2002, over 200 million Sharpie markers were produced. New Sharpie products really gained momentum during 2002-2005 with the launch of 6 new Sharpie product lines, and the introduction of 12 more colors, bringing the spectrum of Sharpie to 24 bold colors! “Today, Sharpie stands for far more than just markers. Made to write on, stand out on, and stay on practically any surface, it’s The Permanent Marker born for unique, unruly, courageous, outrageous self-expression that never, ever fades from glory.”
