The truth is pens are all used for the same thing – to write. But writing starts with an inspiration and the proper tools. And, in the world of fine writing instruments the perfect tool can be the inspiration. When you hold a perfectly weighted fountain pen tipped with a well calibrated nib, flexing with just the right touch, words will spring to life. Thick, inky lines of text will spin tales of faraway places, soaring music, daring deeds and well timed speeches. One of the finest inspirational brands is Parker pen products. This is a company that understands quality with a very broad range of pen styles.
The Parker Pen Company was founded in 1891 by George Safford Parker and from the early 1920’s to the 1960s the company held steady at number 1 or number 2 in sales worldwide.
Parker ballpoint pens are still one of the most widely used pens on the market due to their reliability and durability. But, Parker’s line of pens is larger than just ballpoints. Parker boasts an innovative line of pen types including Parker Fountain Pens, Parker Jotter Pens and Pen Sets.
Three of my favorites are the Parker Jotter Gold Ball Pen GT, Parker Frontier Matte Black GT Roller Ball Pen and the Parker Vector Stainless Steel GT Roller Ball Pen. All three of these pens embody the rich character and design that Parker has become known for and each offers their own unique inspiration to the world of pens.
So take the time to dive into Parker and their products. But better yet, take the time to learn a little bit more about the writing instruments that have for far too long been taken for granted. I think you will be surprised at what you find.
