Parker at WHSmith
George S. Parker believed it was always possible to make a better pen. This drove him to found Parker and patent his first pen in 1888, and it’s the philosophy that motivates the constant refinement of Parker pens today.
Iconic details like the arrow clip and the hand-assembled, Ace-emblazoned nibs, are anchored in a heritage of craftsmanship, driven forward by the belief that writing with a finely crafted instrument can enhance and deepen your thoughts. It is this commitment to quality that has made the Parker name synonymous with excellence in fine-writing.
With years of experience and innovation, Parker’s commitment to quality has ensured that each pen delivers the best writing experience for when it matters most. This commitment has received royal recognition with Parker being awarded two Royal Warrants. The first in 1962 by Queen Elizabeth II making Parker the official supplier of writing instruments to the Royal Household and the second in 1990 from His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
For better first thoughts, for better final drafts, for better thinking, you don’t just need a pen – you need a Parker.
