Duofold was Parker's flagship line, [7] but the Duofold's successor, the Vacumatic [8] was already under development and was in full production by 1933. Vacumatics held their ink supply directly within their celluloid barrels, so Quink was formulated accordingly. Geoffrey Parker, David Shepherd, Dan Zazove. "Parker Vacumatic". Surrenden Pens Ltd., Brighton, UK, 2008, pp. 248-9 Parker Quink Ink is full of surprises – not only is it a classic ink used for dip pens and fountain pens, it is also a beautiful medium to use for illustration and painting.It is a non-waterproof ink and as a result can be used in many interesting ways that are different to how waterproof ink can be used.

In 1928, under the direction of Kenneth Parker, the Parker Pen Company set out to develop a new and improved fountain pen ink. Inferior inks had long been the main cause of clogged fountain pens, yet popular ink formulations had remained unchanged in decades. Research for the project was initially outsourced to Miner Laboratories of Chicago. In August 1930 one of the lead chemists, Galen Sayler, was hired directly and put to work in a small laboratory at company headquarters in Janesville, Wisconsin. [1] History [ edit ] Geoffrey Parker, David Shepherd, Dan Zazove. "Parker Vacumatic". Surrenden Pens Ltd., Brighton, UK, 2008, pp. 246-48Quink was later manufactured in the Philippines under license from Parker, and the bottles were labelled accordingly.

What biographical information that can be found is incomplete and unreliable. There is no indication that such a person ever worked for Parker.

Quink Ink is such a fun and surprising medium to work with and there are so many different ways it can be used. You can even try adding salt over wet areas to create dappled effects. There was a company called Quisumbing Ink Products in the Philippines, unconnected to Parker, founded by a chemical engineer named Francisco A. Quisumbing. The milestones of Quisumbing's documented career are close enough to those recounted in the apocryphal accounts that it is probable that they refer, with differing degrees of accuracy, to the same man. The real Francisco A. Quisumbing was born in 1893 and received his B. Agr. in 1914 and his M. S. in 1918, both from the University of the Philippines. He was a Fellow of the University of the Philippines at Columbia University in New York from 1918 to 1921, receiving his Ph.D. from Columbia in 1921. He returned to the Philippines to teach as Professor of Industrial Chemistry at the University of the Philippines from 1922 to 1934. In 1923, he started the Quisumbing Ink Products company, and in 1934, founded the Quisumbing School of Technology. [3] According to a book published in 1960, Quisumbing inks then enjoyed an exclusive contract to supply all branches of the Philippine government. [4] According to fountain pen enthusiasts, Parker Quink is generally considered to be "safe fountain pen ink"; [10] this means that it should not stain or clog fountain pens very easily. Firstly, Quink Ink can be used in calligraphy pens as it won’t cause the nibs to become clogged. This is because the ink is non-waterproof and can easily be rinsed from the pens. Waterproof inks are not recommended for calligraphy pens as theycan damage and clog the nibs.
