French manufacturer of inks and grounds for etching and lithography since 1862.

F. CHARBONNEL’s factory assures his development by working on new printing process and working out inks and varnishes always more performing.

In Paris, many lithographic workshops are created and CHARBONNEL increases his production in order to answer the demand .

These good times last until 1930, when the birth of a new photomechanical process, the offset, will turn upside down the life of many makers in inks and varnishes. Engraving gets back its status as an authentic piece of art while losing the one of printing process.

Nowadays, more than 150 years after its birth, CHARBONNEL applies on diversification by opening itself up to the gilding trade while it keeps on providing inks and varnishes for intaglio and lithography.
