TODAY IS BALL POINT PEN DAY
In June of 1943 the Bíró brothers, László and György, became owners of US Patent 2,390,636 – better known around the world as the ball point pen. The Hungarian inventors’ new pen, inspired by the quick-drying inks used by professional printers, was as remarkable as the first fountain pen had been the century before. Ball Point Pen Day celebrates these intrepid inventors, and the often indelible mark they’ve left on the world at large.
