Carter was founded in 1858 in Boston by William Carter, a stationer which began to sell inks produced by other under its own brand. Then he took some patents and started also his own production; the activity had a great success, so much so that in 1884 the Carter became the first world ink producer. A few years later, in 1888, the Carter was incorporated under the name of Carter's Ink Company.
