Alpha is a Korean company that is well-known for making high quality marker pens and brush pens. It was founded in Korea in 1962. The company began by manufacturing water colour paints and paint for posters. It soon went on to develop a professional range of colours which were used by some poster designers in Korea. The range quickly became popular, and the company started to export to Singapore. By the middle of the 1980s, Alpha also started to manufacture acrylic colours.
By 1991, Alpha’s business started to expand to many different countries, and by 1994 it was exporting to no less than fifty countries across the world. In the last couple of decades, Alpha has made serious headway in the United States and here in the United Kingdom. Not only does the brand offer marker pens and brush pens that are very high quality, it also offers a huge selection of different colours.
Over the years, Alpha has received a number of prestigious awards including the excellence award for product graphics in the Best Package Design Competition and a Power Brand Award from Korean Management Innovation. The company has come a long way in the past five decades, and has clearly demonstrated that it is in it for the long haul, providing quality products to enhance the creativity of artists across the world. Alpha offers single markers as well as sets.
In the last couple of decades, Alpha has gained a strong following in the US and Europe. An Alpha marker has become a must-have accessory for almost many different artists – including painters and sketchers. Many of the Alpha markers have not one but two tips; one with a chisel tip and one with a fine tip. This makes these pens both versatile and highly functional. Check out our range today.
