Go ahead, Uncap a Sharpie

“Uncap What’s Inside” … We throw it around a lot but what exactly does it mean?

I’m not going to give you Webster’s version, instead, here’s my own… To Uncap What’s Inside means to let your true colors show; to express yourself, to let your personality and creativity out and embrace what makes you, YOU!  At Sharpie, we believe that these markers and pens can help people express themselves creatively, turning the everyday into one-of-a-kind works of art – something uniquely your own! 

Here is a perfect example of a 12 year old girl who has taken this phrase to heart and has done just that – she Uncapped What’s Inside of her!

12 year old Maddie Chaffer of Grand Rapids, Michigan is an avid Beatles fan and wanted to stand out from the crowd when entering 7th grade.  With an assortment of Sharpies, she “Yellow Submarined” her trombone and will certainly stand out from the crowd with her MaddieC. Original musical instrument!

  5. Hi Joyce! Unfortunately there is currently not a way to refill the Sharpie Pens, but if you’re looking for a refillable option- be sure to check out Sharpie Stainless Steel. You can find it, and refill cartridges, at most major office supply stores! Hope this helps!

  6. I bought a Sharpie Pen from Walmart only because it was refillable and they didn’t have one in red ink. I can’t find a refill for it on your website. I think the refill number is 1751000 for Sharpie Pen 1747388. It is a stainless steel pen, fine point. Knowing Walmart it imay be a discontined pen.

    Can you tell me how to get a red ink refill for this pen?

    Thank you,
    Peggy Black
