Our Independence – Your Gain
We started U-Mark in 2002 because we had a passion for making markers and developing new
products without the burden of corporate bureaucracy. We figured that we’d love being
independent and customers would benefit from our # 1 quality, better value and innovative
design. It worked beyond our expectations.
Today, U-Mark makes millions of markers, sold in five continents and used by companies large
and small. Our commitment to quality is continuous. We don’t just “sell markers’. We constantly
test, innovate and improve our products. Helping you make your best mark – that’s our focus.
Innovative New Products
It’s easy to see how committed U-Mark is to innovation. Long before “being green” became
fashionable, we introduced xylene-free greenlabel® paint markers. Our new, patented
Megaflow™ valve improves marker performance. The U-Holder™ simplifies marking operations.
And the new, refillable Metalhead™ raises the bar of performance, economy and responsibility
towards the environment. Look at our Innovations page.
An Extraordinary Story
U-Mark's roots are intertwined with those of Ideal Stencil and its' 18,000 sq. ft. building, where marking history was made since 1911.
