    Sharpie on, Sharpie off

    As others have said I think the key to making black Sharpie last is to mark your discs towards the middle of the flight plate where your fingers won't wear on it. Multiple coats (ala Old Bob) also help.
    I have accidently discovered a way to remove Sharpie from ANY plastic. I bought an Ebay ESP Surge with lots of ink. I tried removing the markings with Goof-off (Acetone w/other dangerous chemicals added) but it just faded.They were still quite visible. I was frustrated. It was a hot dry day. I noticed the birds around my feeder looked thirsty. I figured an ESP Surge birdbath would be perfect. I poured water in the disc and set it on a level surface in the sun. The water evaporated and two weeks later every Sharpie mark was totally gone. I don't know if it was the sunlight or the evaporating water but I've since tried the same method on champion and KC pro plastic and after one week I must say it works amazingly well.

      I use black sharpie. I used color sharpie before and i've found out it doesn't last as long.

          i have found that if i scuff a small portion of the underside of the rim the sharpie sets in and stays. i have also had some issues with it slowly coming off without it being scuffed up. not to much scuffing though, because too much and it would cause an indent and an indent from your scuffing would cause it to be illegal in tournament play.

            Instead of marking my discs I've just assumed a few new nicknames: 176, 173, 177, 180 . . .

            If you find any of these, they're mine!

                      Just pee on your disc.

                      Sure, no one will be able to tell it's yours, but when you lose it and the phone doesn't ring, you know that the loser that has it is hauling a little bit of your urine in their bag!

                      Somehow fitting.

                      OK, sorry for that one...
