When it comes to giving a gift with a story, Fisher Space Pen Co.’s story is unparalleled in the ball point pen industry. Founded by Paul C. Fisher in 1948, Fisher Space Pen Co. revolutionized the performance of the ball point pen. Paul C. Fisher’s first success in pen manufacturing, the Bullet, is now held in the Museum of Modern Art in New York as a symbol of elegant, American industrial design. The Bullet Space Pen has been a part of pop-culture for decades, being featured on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and the topic of the Seinfeld episode entitled ‘The Pen’, which still today is considered one of the 10 most watched episodes for the series.
Fisher Space Pen Co. became world renowned with Paul’s patented pressurized technology in 1967 that allowed for a ball point pen to perform in the most unique environment. His patented technology lead to performance in zero-gravity, under water, over oil and grease, in -30 to +250 degrees Fahrenheit and allowed continual writing for over 2miles, something that no one had ever seen before. NASA caught wind of his invention and in 1968 the crew of Apollo 7 flew into space with what is now known as the AG7 Original Astronaut Space Pen. Since Apollo 7, every crewed mission into space has used an AG7, most recently Space X.
The value propositions of the Space Pen have become sought after by many trade professionals and writers, across several industries due to their performance. Pilots, Military, Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, EMT’s, Game Wardens, Construction workers, Hunters/Anglers, Divers, Oil & Gas workers, and Farmers/Ranchers all need pens that perform in harsh environments, making Fisher Space Pen the perfect choice for their trade. While not only being a tool for getting the job done, Fisher Space Pens have been donned one of the best gifts for many occasions. Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Birthdays, Graduations, Weddings, Retirements, Anniversaries and Christmas are occasions where space pens out-perform their competitors due to their story. Kids love them! Think about it. How many items can a kid own that is actually used in space by an astronaut! These pens lend a hand in the classroom to teachers when taking about gravity (since these pens perform in anti-gravity) and also as an example of how American innovation of such a simple product can lead to greater application and commercialization of a space technology.
