Windshield paint markers up to 1 1/2" in width were developed as a convenient delivery system. Markers are easier to use and create less mess than brush and bottles applicators. They are also less expensive than the popular vinyl letters which can cost up to 25 cents per letter as compared to 3 cents per letter with paint markers. Tips are acrylic and initially take a few minutes for the paint to wick down and load the tip. Once loaded, they are ready to use at a moments notice. The paints are acrylic, water based paint with UV resistant additives and specifically designed to be rain resistant yet come off easily with mild cleaners or a razor blade. The paint also will not "ghost" windshields.

Originally develops as Poster Paint markers, windshield paints are available from manufacturers such as Posca, Artline, and Sharpie.

Body panel markers have become popular with insurance adjusters and collision shop estimators as a means of identifying damage and customer information on body panels and windshields. Similar in characteristics to the windshield markers: panel markers are resistant to water yet removable with most mild cleaners. Tips are available in medium tip (5mm), broad tip (8mm to 12mm) and broad tip (17mm to 20mm) and up to nine colors. The most popular colors being fluorescent orange, green, and yellow. Popular brand names include Posca, Autowriter, and Artline.

Permanent paint markers for permanent marking of parts are used in place of tags and labels and available in felt tip for smooth metal surfaces, solid paint markers for wet surfaces, and steel tip markers for rough surfaces. Permanent markers use oil based enamel paint that have the ability to mark on oily surfaces and resist weathering. Popular brands of industrial permanent paint markers are Dykem, Markal, Unipaint, and Artline.
