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

THE LAST WORD - for now

I have received the following letter from Suellen Bock, President of Rembrandt Graphic Arts. While I appreciate the sentiment and kind words about Graphic Chemical & Ink, I am truly sorry that Rembrandt came to this end.
