 Post subject: Sharpie Rubbing Off Coins

While I am in the process of practicing I have noticed that when I mark a coin (quarter) with a sharpie it tends to rub off with very little effort. This prevents me from producing the coin as the spectator marked it at the end of the trick. I do let the coin dry momentarily by blowing on it...but that doesn't seem to be effective. Any Suggestions???

There's an "Industrial" Sharpie that is supposed to be more permanent than the regular kind.

Go to any office supply store and look for Avery labels. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes. get the size and shape most applicable to your needs. You can then place the sticker on the coin, and have the spectator mark the sticker without the fear of it rubbing off.
