Write with the Best! Write Dudes

History of The Write Dudes®

In 1994, two Southern California “dudes” met and started a small business selling local advertising around the perimeter of dry erase boards. Under the company name “Innovative Ideas” and on a shoestring budget, the company manufactured and sold branded dry erase boards to college students, boutiques and local restaurants in Orange County.

In 2000, the company began to focus on selling products in the retail market and decided to re-brand itself as The Board Dudes. Shortly thereafter, The Board Dudes introduced the very first magnetic dry erase board. For the next six years, the company continued to introduce fun and innovative products into the market place.

In 2006, The Board Dudes was acquired by Montreal-based MEGA Brands Inc., to join its portfolio of brands including RoseArt, Moon Products and most famously, MEGA Bloks in an effort to expand the company’s presence in the Arts & Stationery product categories.

Then, in 2009, the company introduced an all-new line of writing instruments into the retail market under the brand name, The Write Dudes. The Write Dudes focused on providing fun, fashionable and inexpensive writing tools targeting a youthful audience. As part of the launch, the company’s classic USA Gold pencils were rebranded and re-introduced into The Write Dudes line of products!

Today, The Write Dudes continues to design and distribute an innovative range of branded products for the school, home and office supply markets. The brand’s primary product categories include pens, pencils, permanent markers, permanent pens, highlighters, erasers, and novelty writing products. Sold under the brand names Infinity™, Scribble Stuff™, The Write Dudes® and USA Gold®, these goods are mass distributed in retail channels throughout the US and Canada.
