Dear Christine,

I only use permanent markers when I need to, like to color foil. The ones I
use (not sure what brand, get them from the office) are very low odor. And,
I just tell them right up front, that smelling them on purpose is bad for
them, so if they do it, no marker, no project, no grade.

Sincerely, Leah
