2010 Sharpie Squad

I'm very excited to be part of the Sharpie Squad again this year!! Here's an except from the official press release -
OAKBROOK, IL: Sharpie introduced its 2010 Sharpie Squad this week, highlighting 20 artists, bloggers, and customers who have found creative uses of Sharpie products and who will serve as brand ambassadors.
The Squad members will blog, tweet, and otherwise discuss the ways they use Sharpie products while the company will "shine our social media light on them and really drive some eyeballs their way," said Susan Wassel, social media and PR manager for Sharpie.
The brand, which is working with AOR Weber Shandwick, will periodically provide squad members with Sharpie products to test or offer in blog or Twitter contests.
"This is consumer-driven," said Wassel. "Sharpie started out mainly as a labeling tool, very utilitarian. More recently, we were seeing all of these incredibly creative uses of the product -- nothing that we decided or pushed out from Sharpie, but really just consumer, organically driven."

Like it says on the back of my tile "I can't live without my Sharpie!"

Stay tuned for amazing Sharpie product give-aways...coming soon!!
