Hello,

Does anyone recall the price of a bottle of Parker Penman when it was in production (before it got discontinued)?

Best regards.

Where I bought mine they were about 2-3X the price of a bottle of Quink back then.

The Penman inks were my favorites. I remember buying them at $4.00 a bottle.

Hi,

 

Penman was AED18, while Quink was AED6.

 

The AED remains pegged to the USD at Dh 3.68 : $1.

 

Bye,

S1

Hello,

A parker quink goes for 10$, so if we go by the same ratio, a PP bottle should cost about 30$ this days, I got mines for less than that (about 23$ each), so I will assume I am getting them at a discounted price, better hurry and get few more.

Best regards.

I'm guessing shipping to the states would be very expensive?

Hello,

Yes it's expensive, and not guaranteed, we don't have reliable postage companies here.

Best regards.
