    @Kat Mackin, so far my plate seems to be OK (for now) w/reg permanent sharpie, I washed it by hand with Hot water & dish soap but I don't think I'd put it in the washer or use any sort of rough scrubby on it. I'm sure that would take it off like you said it did to yours. :( Thanks for commenting to let people know about your experience.

    @Kat Mackin, I put mine in the oven before it heated up & let it heat to I think I did 350 then when it reached that temp I left it on for I think it was like 10 -15 min. then turned the oven off & left the plate in until it was completely cold. I think I will rebake mine same way again but I will let it reach probably 425 & leave it on that temp for about 30 min. before I turn it off & let it get cold.

    We JUST did this today (10/12/14) with plain white plates. We followed the instructions to bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Our colors faded. We used regular sharpie markers. We are going to see if 350 at 30 minutes will work. We have an electric stove. That might be a difference, too.
