Founded by husband-and-wife team Rob and Therese Craig, Take Your Mark Sports™ was born when Rob and Therese decided athletes needed a safer alternative to the sharpies they saw their daughters and other swimmers covered with at swim meets. After developing a waterproof, nontoxic ink, they began manufacturing their swim and tri markers to the delight of athletes everywhere.
Take Your Mark Sports produces ink body markers for athletes, focusing on swimmers and triathletes. Unlike pens designed for office use or arts and crafts, Take Your Mark pens are designed specifically for use on the human body. Take Your Mark sports markers use non-toxic ink colorants that are approved for cosmetic use, making them a safer choice than Sharpies. All Take Your Mark Sports markers are designed to withstand sweat, water and lotions and pens can handle up to 100 athletes' markings.
Take Your Mark's event and tri body markers can be used to give triathletes and open water swimmers race numbers and help identify them during competition. Take Your Mark's swim markers are designed for use at swim meets, whether to record heat and lane assignments on an arm, or simply for swimmers to display doodles and encouraging messages on their bodies.
