PARKER Turquoise Ballpoint Pen

Parker Turquoise Ballpoint Pen is a product of the Parker Pen Company. Most importantly, Parker is an American manufacturer of luxury pens. The company was founded in 1888 by George Safford Parker in Janesville, Wisconsin, United States.


Subsequently, George Safford Parker received his first fountain pen related patent in 1889. Meanwhile, in 2011 they closed the Parker factory at Newhaven, East Sussex, England.  And its production transferred to Nantes, France.

Furthermore, this ballpoint pen is an ideal gift.


What are the different types of ballpoint?

A ballpoint pen is available as a disposable or refillable model. The refill model is completely replaceable, including the ink reservoir, ballpoint, and socket. A ballpoint pen in its simplest form is a disposable unit that either has a cap to cover the tip when not in use or a retractable mechanism that varies between manufacturers but is usually a spring- or screw-based one.


The Rollerball and Uni-ball Jetstream pens

The rollerball pen works in the same way as a traditional ballpoint pen, but instead, they use water-based ink instead of oil-based ink.
Rollerball pens provide more fluid ink flow when compared to oil-based ballpoint pens, but water-based inks stain if held close to the writing surface.


Additionally, water-based ink remains wet longer when freshly applied, becoming prone to “smearing” – problematic for left-handed people (or right-handed people writing the right-to-left script) – and “running” when the surface becomes damp.


The Uni-ball Jetstream and Pilot Acroball lines of ballpoint pens have a hybrid ink formulation. These pens are “extra smooth” since they provide a smoother writing experience than standard ballpoint inks.


The Fisher Space and Erasable pens

Fisher Space Pens utilize viscous ink and a pressurized ink reservoir that forces ink toward the tip. They are able to write in reverse or zero-gravity environments and are reportedly waterproof. Astronauts have used these pens in space.


The Paper Mate company pioneered erasable ballpoint pens. These pens use ink with properties similar to rubber cement, which can be rubbed clean from writing surfaces before becoming permanent. These pens have erasers, though any eraser will do. Erasable ink is thicker than standard ballpoint ink, so they’re able to write upside-down while still using pressurized cartridges.


Bic and Multi-Pens

This cheap and disposable pen (also known as a Bic Cristal or a Biro) is reportedly the most widely sold pen in the world, as well as the first product of the Bic company.


Pens with multiple colour refills are called multi-pens. Ballpoint refills can be combined with other types of refills, such as a mechanical pencil or stylus. Ballpoint pens can combine a ballpoint tip with a touchscreen stylus.
