THE BALLPOINT PEN: THE MOST POPULAR PROMOTIONAL ITEM IN THE UK
Since its creation in the early 19th century, the ballpoint pen has won its way into our workplaces, everyday life, and our pockets. We would not be able to imagine a world now without ballpoint pens, and why should we? Even with use of new technology on the increase with phones, laptops and handheld devices becoming more common than ever - we still class a ballpoint pen as an essential, even finding a way to use them with our technology via touch pens! Its popularity may be due to its innovative design; a convenient tool that fits perfectly in the hand with fast drying ink flowing from the cartridge onto our pages, via that clever little ball located on the end. Just three years before the first factory opened in the UK in 1944, the Biro brothers of Argentina manufactured and sold what we now know as the 'biro'! Their main customers were the Royal Air Force, who favoured the pens over the fountain pens they were accustomed to as they worked better in higher altitude. As the ballpoint pen gained more recognition in other parts of the world, most notably after the Second World War, factories started mass producing ballpoint pens. With the first factory in the UK selling a staggering 30,000 ballpoints in the following year after opening, it was a flurry in demand that they most certainly didn't anticipate. Nowadays we use brands such as custom BIC pens, printed Parker pens, Stabilo and Waterman, but one thing remains the same - the necessity for these pens in our everyday lives.
