Imagination International, Inc. began as a small company committed to making the world a better place by putting the best artistic tools into the hands of accomplished and aspiring artists. From a spare bedroom in 1998 with two employees, to our 40,000 square foot facility with more than 70 employees today, helping artists and creative people is still at the heart of all that we do. You may know us as the exclusive distributor of the renowned Copic markers for North America and as the maker of the industry leading ImagiLux ultra-thin LED panel, but we are more than that.
We take great pride in our educational offerings, our customer service, and in the many products we sell (check out our brands). Though we are known throughout the world, we have always been a local company at heart. We support local arts organizations, schools, and community service organizations because we feel that every person should have the opportunity to reach their full creative potential — our love of the arts, the human spirit, and the power of creativity compels us to do so.
Our goal is to help our customers as well as our community thrive and flourish in tangible and meaningful ways, it’s in our DNA. Staying true to our values has helped us create a company where we are proud to work. Over the years we have learned that creativity is precious. What makes us happiest is to see others discover the creativity within them. We could not come to work every day if we did not know our work mattered. Our focus continues to inspire us to strive for the highest level of quality in everything we do.
Imagination International, Inc. was founded in 1998 to develop a children’s educational software called Alphaplanet for an English school in Tokyo, Japan. In 1999 we became the exclusive North American distributor of Copic markers and we’ve been growing ever since. What started as a 2-person operation in the spare bedroom of a house is now an industry leader with over 50 employees operating in a 40,000 square foot facility in beautiful Eugene, Oregon.
Imagination International, Inc. is an importer, distributor, and marketer of the finest creative supplies from across the globe, and our technology division, Imagilux, manufactures some of the best LED lighting systems in the world. Our product offerings cater to budding artists as young as two, all the way up to professional designers and fine artists. We also publish educational materials and offer classes in both traditional and digital formats.
At Imagination International, Inc. we care about our customers, our community, and the Arts. That is why we are dedicated to our mission of promoting aesthetic expression through community involvement, educational support, and exceptional customer service. We believe that a creative mind should never be limited by inferior tools, which is why we are committed to only working with manufacturers that truly care about quality and stand by their products.
