The Dri Mark Story

Our story begins in the year 1958 when instant dry permanent markers were making the world go gaga over the technology. A Japanese company came up with this revolutionary technology and we thought of serving the needs in USA market. Thus, our story began with becoming the first ever importers of new markers in America

Later on, we discovered the tremendous opportunities that made us preferred source for USA-made instruments and security marking systems.

A Closer Look at Where We Started

As the demand for permanent markers surged, we purchased the Japanese manufacturer company in the year 1973. We also started manufacturing other writing instruments with some of the most classic options like ‘The Buffalo Artist Colors’ and ‘Mr. Doodler’. New writing and security marking systems were being introduced in the market and we kept pushing the limits.

With a full-fledged headquarters in the United States, Dri Mark established itself as the leader in market and continues growing on what it does the best.
