All You Need To Know About The Highlighter Pen


What is a highlighter pen?

A highlighter pen is a felt tip marker filled with fluorescent transparent ink in place of black or opaque ink. The highlighter pen has water-based ink that is used for marking of text without obscuring it. Highlighters are popular within the education sector with students choosing to use them to mark significant parts of writing for easier learning.

When was it invented?

The first water-based highlighter was developed by a Japanese inventorYukio Horie of the Tokyo Stationery Company. This pen was not produced to highlight texts, but it encouraged Carter’s Ink Company to, in 1963, start manufacturing a comparable water-based Marker with translucent ink named Hi-Liter™.
