Fisher Pens: Innovation Engineered for Space

1 May

Fisher Brand Story on EuropeanPaper.com

The Fisher Pen Company created a legacy of innovation through precise engineering based on the values of founder Paul C. Fisher (1913-2006). An engineer, political candidate, philosopher, author, and mentor, Fisher believed that the “scientific technique was the common sense approach to the solution of any problem.” Though the Fisher name is often synonymous with the creation of the “space pen” used on NASA missions to the moon, Fisher Pens are a relevant tool for many professions … not just astronauts!

Fisher History

Founded in 1945, The Fisher Pen Company began as a division of the Fisher-Armour Manufacturing Company in Chicago, Illinois. Fisher moved to California briefly before settling in Boulder City, Nevada, in 1976.

The company began manufacturing pens after one of one of its clients, the Reynolds Pen Company, decided to sell their business. Reynolds was the first company to manufacture the ballpoint pen in the United States, introducing a model replicating inventor László Bíró’s ballpoint pen which was being sold in Argentina at the time. Initially they had great success, but as the ballpoint skyrocketed to popularity, Reynolds saw less opportunity in the over saturated market and sold their manufacturing facilities to Fisher. Taking on the challenge of this new industry, Fisher set out to design a quality pen that stood out from the rest.

Engineering Pens for Space

With his strong background in engineering, Paul C. Fisher wanted to make a functional pen that was durable, ergonomic, and would not leak. The first working model of this pen was conceived in July 1948. Named the Fisher Bullet Pen, it remains one of their most popular products. The Bullet Pen was such a revolutionary invention that it has been on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Fisher added further contribution to the pen industry when he released the “Universal Refill” in 1953. The refill broke off at 15 different lengths to fit the most popular pens of that era, making it infinitely easier for dealers to stock pens.

After a large controversy concerning NASA’s decision to use a mechanical pencil that cost $128.84 on the Gemini 3 Mission in 1965, Fisher independently engineered a nitrogen pressurized ink cartridge that could write in zero gravity and would cost as little as $4! Patented in 1965 as the AG7, the Anti-Gravity Pen would make its first appearance in space on the Apollo 7 mission of 1968. Later it made a few appearances in pop-culture. Ronald Reagan used the pen to inaugurate Air and Space Bicentennial Year in 1983 and the premise of a 1998 Seinfeld episode was based on the pen as a gift of friendship.

Functionality

While Fisher has a deep and rather entertaining history, don’t be fooled into thinking their products are mere novelty items. The quality and functionality of their design has won the hearts of many around the world. Backed by an unconditional lifetime guarantee, Fisher Pens are built from durable materials (chrome, titanium, and other metals) and their thixotropic refill is known to write for more than three times longer than a regular ballpoint refill.

Featuring a Tungsten Carbide ballpoint fitted perfectly to a stainless steel socket, and a hermetically-sealed cartridge, the pens guarantee consistent ink flow with absolutely no leaking. The nitrogen pressurized cartridges make writing possible in the most extreme conditions, guaranteeing performance in temperatures from -30 to +250 degrees Fahrenheit, underwater, in zero gravity, at elevations up to 12,500 feet, and at any angle!

The versatility of these pens makes a perfect fit for military, contractors, mountaineers, maintenance workers, and those who want to be ready to write under any circumstance. (Try writing with a Fisher pen on a Rite in the Rain Notebook and who knows, you could be working from the hot tub next winter!)

Impression & Innovation

Fisher is a great example of a company that was truly built from the ground up. Their focus on durability and accuracy in every detail has led to great products that were interesting for space exploration, but pivotal for the pen industry as a whole. Whether you are a pen aficionado, a professional in need, or just looking for a way to impress your coworkers, try out a Fisher pen and experience the innovation that earned them the distinction as one of the most coveted pens in the world.
