Ink Inspector is an unbiased third-party grading and authentication company, aimed at affordably combating the counterfeiting and forgery of autographed collectibles. Started by collectors in California as a direct response to price-gouging in the authentication industry, Ink Inspector now also operates out of Louisville, Kentucky and Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. We've been aiding collectors for more than a decade. We specialize in the assessment of items from 1950-present that reside in the $0-$500 price range. Understandably, most collectors are not willing to spend $30 to authenticate a $10 autograph. In those scenarios - and most others - Ink Inspector is an excellent, trust-worthy alternative to other companies.
