Ballpoint Pen Day - Do You Still Write?

Wong Shu Lee  


  June 10, 2021

On June 10th of 1943, Hungarian brothers Laszlo and Gyorgy Biro walked into a European patent office to declare ownership of their new writing pen design. From this day on, countless ballpoint pens have been enjoyed by writers around the world. 


After 78 years, although people nowadays type more often than write, the ballpoint pen remains the most popular writing instrument over the globe and continues to represent an affordable and reliable means for writing on any standard surface. 


This simple and practical product can be found in homes, offices, classrooms, and more, and it’s easy to see why this invention has not only survived, but thrived, over the last 78 years. From business to pleasure (like ballpoint pen art!), the ballpoint pen holds a special place in our hearts. 


Since today is Ballpoint Pen Day, our team members decided to observe the day by showing our handwriting using our favorite pen.

When is the last time you pick up a ballpoint pen and write? If it has been long, why not use a pen to take your next meeting note?
