Created by two teenagers from Cebu in 2018, Troublemaker Inks’ launch was celebrated for being the first Philippine fountain pen ink in the market. Their first ink collection featured Filipino and Cebuano inspiration such as green Hanging Rice, Luneta Twilight Pink, and Sinulog Black.

The brand was forced into hiatus during the first few months of COVID-19, however, with Cebu’s capital city being one of the worst hit by the pandemic. But the Troublemaker duo managed to release two limited edition inks with Scribe: the gray Butanding and greenish brown Pawikan.
