In arkansas, Is it legal to use a pink pen on a legal document?

Asked over 1 year ago - Conway, AR

I work at a hotel and our guests have to sign registration slips to agree to rate, smoking and pet policy, and for general liability. Some staff members are having guests sign these tickets in pink ink. It looks tacky. I remember hearing somewhere that only blue and black were considered legal for ink. Is this true in arkansas?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . It is not true. The law does not specify what color ink is required for a contract. It has been a long business practice of some banks to require either black ink or blue ink on their documents - but that is an internal policy that was likely driven by the limitations of early photocopiers and not something dictated by law.
