Sanford Brands -- Sharpie Name -- This Green Highlighter is a Winner!

Aug 27, 2007
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:fluorescent light green ink easy to see, chisel tip for narrow and broad lines

Cons:cap doesn't fit well at back of highlighter

The Bottom Line: A highlighter used with success in our office.


Out come the colored highlighters when I have to analyze data or do a color-coding project. Today, again, I am using the Sanford/Sharpie Accent Highlighter in Fluorescent Green Ink.


Description

This is a wide-bodied highlighter that measures 4 1/2” long x 3/4” diameter. The smooth body and cap are a bright green. The cap is designed to fit into the back of the highlighter so that it doesn’t become lost. There are six small holes in the cap to help prevent asphyxiation should the cap become accidentally swallowed.

A nice chisel tip is at the writing end of this highlighter. The ink is AP certified as non-toxic, and the manufacturer says the ink is quick drying.

Sanford Brands puts out this Sharpie highlighter. The highlighter used to be called Sanford Accent Highlighter but now bears the name Sharpie Accent Highlighter. Just in case you are interested, Sanford is a division of Newell Rubbermaid.


My Experiences

I use this green highlighter when I have to implement color-coding on a project. Using different colored highlighters makes reviewing and categorizing the data much easier! So when the engineering department needed green highlighters for their department, I recommended these.

The chisel tip of this green highlighter delivers either a narrow or wide line depending upon how the highlighter is held. Not only is the ink non-toxic, but it is virtually odorless. The color green is called a fluorescent green, and it reminds me of a bright lime color. It is easy to see blue and black ballpoint pen as well as copier and laser jet printing through the highlighter. Even when the highlighter is swashed across the printing several times, the green color may darken a bit, but the writing is still readable. This highlighter dries very quickly, too.

When using this highlighter, the green does not seep through the page to mark other papers. However, looking at the back side of the highlighted page, I can easily see the green markings.

It is easy to hold the smooth barrel and use this highlighter. The barrel fits well in the hand. If you like writing with a wide-barreled pen, then this highlighter works the same way. The chisel tip is also durable.

If I had to pick one thing negative about this highlighter, it would be that the cap is hard to fit into the end of the barrel. It’s a very tight fit. The cap has a 1/4” nub on the end that is supposed to slide into the back of the barrel. In order to jam the cap in place, I have to wiggle it back and forth, applying pressure. And, still, the cap does not fit flush against the back of the marker.


Purchasing

We bought a 12-pack of these green highlighters from W.B. Mason for $6.45.

Sanford also guarantees customer satisfaction. If the Sharpie Accent Highlighter does not perform properly, just return it to the address on the package for a replacement.


Summary

These Sanford/Sharpie Accent Highlighters in Fluorescent Green Ink are great. The shade of green is eye-catching, and the green easily allows the print beneath to be seen and read. Everyone in our company who uses them is happy.

I hope you found this review useful.

Enjoy the day,
Dawn
