Sharpies vs. Fabric Markers for Pillowcases

My kids each have a pillowcase that we'll be dropping off to get signed. The pillowcases are white.. What should I give the CM's to sign them with? Sharpie or fabric marker? Does one hold up better in the wash - doesn't fade and/ or the color smear when washed? Thanks for your input

We used sharpies for our pillowcases. However, I haven't washed them and we were just there in February. So I am not much help on how they hold up.

We had pillowcases signed with Bic Mark-Its in 2011. They did such a fantastic job of signing in character-appropriate colors, my kids didn't want to risk them fading, so we hung them on the wall in their bedrooms instead.
Such a great memory from a MAGICal vacation!

Can someone show me how the pillow cases looked framed? Im wondering if they would look better framed than a photo mat would.

Either two per stateroom or one per child depending who you ask.

Try the Crayola Fabric Markers, we used these for our kids pillowcases on our last cruise. The signatures do not fade at all.

I have two pillow cases to be signed, can I put both in one plastic bag with markers or do they need their own bag and markers each??
