Personalised Parker Pens: A History

March 18, 2008 at 4:12 pm Leave a comment

The Parker Pen is, you might say, the standard; the ubiquitous choice; the pen of all pens. The first Parker Pen was made in 1891, when the company was formed by George Parker. This was all before the time when ballpoint pens came onto the scene, and following their invention of the ‘Lucky Curve’ that all but eliminated the leakage fountain pens are famous for, and ‘Quink’, the first quick drying ink that avoided the need for blotting, the Parker Pen quickly became the best-selling pen ever known.

These days, Parker is highly modernised with a website featuring snazzy fountain and ballpoint or rollerball pens. You can also,to some extent, make the pen your own, by choosing from a range of colours and styles. To really personalise your parker pen however, you can buy Personalised Parker Pens from Foremost Products, printed with your name, your business logo, or whatever you like.

In the 21st century, Parker Pens have launched the Parker 100, to replace the classic Parker 51 going forward, and have launched a new website that shows off their product range to best effect. They have recently launched the ‘Special Edition Jotter Pink’, in support of City of Hope to fight breast cancer.
