Rubbing alcohol is the best solvent for ink. If this area gets direct sunlight on it, you'll have more difficulty removing the ink.

Could try WD-40, too. It sometimes does surprising things.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser worked wonders on vinyl siding. We used it to help remove fence stain all over our house and garage when people were sloppy. Takes elbow grease and a bit of water, but it works and didn't damage the siding. Since it's spongy, it had no problem getting into the fine texture on our siding.
