“Our team has been in the marker business for over 20 years and we have supplied the industry with some of the best markers created to date.
Now, through a culmination of feedback from artists and enthusiasts, we offer something better: OLO.

Each OLO half-marker contains 2ml of ink, for a total of 4ml in an OLO double-ended marker. Traditional markers only have approximately 2ml of ink total. OLO’s patented free-flow ink technology utilizes over 90% of the ink compared to standard marker technology, with only 65-70% ink usage.

OLO’s unique design features let artists custom-build marker and marker sets. For example, the OLO Connector ring combines various OLO™ marker ink colors, nibs, and more. Experience a new way to color with OLO accessories such as the Brush Handle.

The OLO™ marker body is designed for easy and quick nib identification. The black marker body identifies the brush nib, the dark gray for the chisel nib, and the white marker body identifies the ZERO (colorless solution) marker.

The OLO brush nib provides a smooth, fluid feel while maintaining balance and control.

In addition, the OLO chisel is designed to provide optimal control for thick and thin strokes.

Manufactured in Japan, the new OLO™ marker is developed using patented technology that features a free-flow ink system. Traditional art marker manufacturers use a technology that has remained unchanged for over 30 years. Unfortunately, there are significant issues with this outdated technology.

Traditional markers contain an absorbent material in the barrel that holds the ink in place. However, this same material traps as much as 35% of the ink, causing a volatile ink flow that degrades as you use the marker. The result limits the overall ink capacity that the marker can hold.
