Montegrappa ink


Montegrappa Offers Something Filling!

A pen without ink? UnthINKable! And yet this most important element in the writing experience is rarely given the attention it deserves.

Ink serves the writer and the pen. It is the enabler, the carrier of the message, what paint is to the artist, clay to the sculptor.

As Italy’s oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments, Montegrappa knows a thing or two about what makes the finest inks.

Flow, colour, drying characteristics, viscosity – inks are more complex than their familiarity conveys. In launching a new range, Montegrappa has addressed every characteristic of what is the lifeblood of writing.

Montegrappa’s chemists have developed a formula made of the finest ingredients available.

The science is as involved as in creating a fine scent, the recipe as complicated.

Every ink in the Montegrappa collection Montegrappa is a composite of acid, colorant and tincture, glycerine, polyester ethylene glycol, edible Arabic resin and carbamide/carbonyldiamide.

Because of Montegrappa’s concern for the environment, the inks do not contain dyes nor any other ingredients of animal origin such as carmine, beeswax, shellac, other insects or animal-derived glycerine.

There are no animal products whatsoever used in the processing of the ink, such as the commonly-used isinglass or gelatine.

Inescapably, as ink is the vehicle for your handwriting, it must express your personality and your moods.

In addition to Black and Dark Blue, the “universal” colours for writing in nearly every culture, Montegrappa inks are also available in the following hues: Green, Violet, Fuchsia, Red, Turquoise and Coffee Brown.

All are supplied in 50ml octagonal bottles, the symbolic shape for Montegrappa.

After facing the challenges of texting and social media, handwriting is making a comeback, especially through the current revival in interest in calligraphy.

Writing by hand is a personal form of communication without equal.

With the appropriate inks, the impact of the message is amplified, reinforced and rendered memorable in a man.
