Industrial Markers


Where to Buy Industrial Markers

Buying industrial markers isn't as easy as a trip to the local office supply store. We'll tell you the best places to look for the market's leading industrial marker products and brand names.

Office supply shopping isn't an enjoyable task for most business leaders.

Even though it gets you out of the office for a few hours, the sheer volume of product options can be mind-numbing. But when it comes to buying industrial markers, supply shopping is even more challenging because regular office supply stores usually don't stock name brand, industrial-quality marking instruments.

There are several features to look for in decent industrial markers. Leading brand manufacturers are the safest choice since they are the ones most likely to comply with quality and safety standards. However, you'll also need to consider things like applications surfaces, work conditions, product features, and or course – price. A quality marker will set you back $5 or more per unit, so it's important to do your research before buying a gross of marking instruments.

Top marker distributors should stock an assortment of products from brand name manufacturers. They should also make the buying experience as painless as possible with easy online ordering processes and shipping procedures. So when it's time to buy industrial markers and writing tools, here are three suppliers we think should be at the top of your list.

Grainger (

Grainger is a recognized name in industrial supplies. They service more than 1.8 million businesses in 153 countries worldwide and have been named by Fortune magazine as the most admired company among diversified wholesalers. They also offer a first-rate e-commerce website with a complete list of industrial markers from brands like Markel, Sakura and other leading manufacturers.

Fastenal Industrial & Construction Supplies (

Even though Fastenal may be known as a supplier of industrial and commercial fasteners, it has grown into a world-class distributor of all things industrial. Like Grainger, Fastenal has an easy-to-navigate e-commerce site with a broad range of marking products. But Fastenal also likes to point out that they have more 2,300 store locations, making it easy for business customers to check out their products in person.

McMaster-Carr Supply Co. (

The McMaster-Carr website doesn't have many of the bells and whistles you'll find on other supply sites. But what they lack in sizzle they make up for in steak, with a comprehensive assortment of industrial marker products that have been tailored to meet every imaginable workplace application.
