Dri Mark Products, Inc. had its beginnings in 1958 when a Japanese company developed an “instant dry permanent marker” overseas. Dri Mark established its US headquarters that same year in response to the high demand that this cutting edge technology had created and became the first American company to import the new markers to the USA.
In 1973, the Reichmann family purchased the Japanese company and began manufacturing an extensive collection of writing instruments, expanding their offering to include such classics as “Mr. Doodler” and “The Buffalo Artist Colors.” In the mid 90’s, Dri Mark entered the Promotional Products Industry, offering high quality pens, markers, and highlighters in a wide variety of colors and with hundreds of customization options.
Today, as a marker manufacturer, Dri Mark has the capacity to manufacture over 2 million markers per day at its headquarters in Port Washington, New York. With a commitment to quality products made in the USA, Dri Mark’s heritage extends not only to its manufacturing processes as an OEM supplier, but also as the leader in loss prevention with its patented Counterfeit Detector Pen / UV Light system.
