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

Come and visit Graphic Chemical & Ink Company in Lisle, IL for the Learning & Product Expo 2008, July 11-13th. For those of you from out of the area, Lisle is about 25 miles west of downtown Chicago.
We'll be at the Hickory Ridge Mariott along with many other art supply vendors.
Classes and demonstrations are being presented in a variety of areas including printmaking, oils, wayter colors, ceramics and many more. Go to the show website - - for a show preview and registration information. While pre-registration isn't required, the earlier you sign up the better chance you have to get into the classes or demos you want.
Our good friend Teresa Parker is teaching a class on linoleum block printing on Friday, a Collage/Monotype class on Saturday, and classes on both techniques on Sunday. She will be highlighting the Caligo Safe Wash Relief Inks that are handled by Graphic Chemical. These inks, as many of you know, are oil based inks with all of the positive qualities of that medium, with the added bonus of cleaning up with soap and water!
Caligo Inks along with a wide selection of our product line will be available in Graphic's booth at the show. Hope we'll see you there.

Printmaking classes will be taught by experienced artist and instructor Teresa Parker at the Art Expo 2008 in Lisle on Friday, Saturday and Sunday July 11-13th. Go to to sign up. All enrollees in Teresa’s classes will receive a Graphic Chemical & Ink Company gift certificate for future use. Classes are geared to all – beginning and advanced artists and teachers. Caligo inks will be featured. These inks are rich in color and perform well – the highlight being that they are oil based but clean up with soap and water.
