If it's permanent it CANNOT be removed, but if it is a black grease pencil, try rubbing it lightly with a soft cloth and see if you can remove the mark.

Try nail polish remover.

Try a damp magic eraser. If it doesn't remove it, it will at least lighten it a lot.

Don't ruin the box in trying to get rid of the marker. If nothing else works apply a pretty sticker to the box to cover it over.

I have removed black permanent marker very successfully with Goof Off (from the hardware store) and with good success with hairspray. I would try either on a small portion on the back of the box to make sure that it doesn't ruin the box and then immediatly blot it dry with a soft rag. Otherwise, I would agree with MCW and try to cover it with a coordinating sticker. Good luck.

Black permanent marker can be removed from non-porous surfaces such as glass or metals by wiping with a cloth moistened with methylated spirits. This will not work for fabrics or paper.

This solution sounds strange, but sometimes you can remove the permanent marker by writing over the mark with a permanent marker. Tthem immediately wiping it off, with a paper towel! I have done this a number of times and it works, most of the time! Let us know, if it works please.
