Copic markers were first produced by the Too Corporation (formerly Izumiya) in Japan in response to designers' needs for photocopy-safe markers. The markers have become especially famous in their homeland for use in the Japanese art industry and manga comics in particular.
These comics are illustrated with anime- like characters and rely heavily on hand drawings. Copic markers have played an instrumental role in the industry and as a result have become synonymous with art-aficionados throughout the world.
