About US Markerboard
US Markerboard is the online leader in the whiteboard and communication board industry. We have been named to the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies in America for the last four years in a row. In 1997 US Markerboard revolutionized the way people purchased whiteboards, chalkboards, and bulletin boards. Up until that point, customers had no other choice but to use a local company for these products. They were limited to the quality and design that the local companies were willing to offer. As a company that was serving the needs of local schools, institutions, hospitals and corporations, we saw an opportunity in the visual communication industry and capitalized on that need. US Markerboard is rapidly expanding its client base not only in the continental United States but world-wide as well. US Markerboard has enjoyed significant growth the last five years while providing its customers with quality products and outstanding customer service.
