I have worked for Graphic Chemical & Ink Company since 1968 - with a brief hiatus(almost 4 years) to travel the World courtesy of my uncle. Sadly it turns out it was my Uncle Sam, and I wasn't too thrilled about the places that he chose to send me. My wife and I have run Graphic Chemical for many years, and have enjoyed the travel that comes with the position. We get to meet our customers (and the occasional vendor) from all over the World

At the request of a number of customers, we approached the famous Swiss manufacturer, Lascaux Colors & Restauro, about handling some of their product line. While the discussion took place over a period of months, we are pleased to announce that we have added these fine materials to our product line.

As always, my accountant is pleading with me to reduce inventory, not increase it, but it makes sense in light of our Mission to expand into this area. Our Mission statement is, " To provide all materials necessary for the fine artist to succeed in the fields of Etching, Lithography, Relief and Silk Screen."

Lascaux products include a number of resists (Grounds and Stop Outs) and removers, as well as a wide variety of tusches and lift grounds. In early October, we will be visiting the Lascaux plant in Switzerland to take a short seminar on the products. With any kind of luck, we'll be able to talk to you intelligently about their products and how they can be used best by our customers
