OUR STORY

Introduction

What is powerful enough to be at the intersection of NASA, the New York Museum of Modern Art, and Seinfeld? Something small enough to fit in your pocket yet big enough to generate thousands of customer fan letters over several decades. A product that works in virtually any condition and is still made by a family-owned company. Welcome to Fisher Space Pen®. This is our story.

Our History

Even though our founder, Paul C. Fisher, revolutionized the pen industry 20 years earlier with the invention of the ‘Universal Cartridge Refill’, it was his creation of the sealed and pressurized ink cartridge that literally launched the company into space in 1967. Debuting on the Apollo 7 mission in 1968, Fisher Space Pen has been on every NASA manned space flight since. In fact, Fisher Space Pen now has its own permanent exhibit inside the Apollo / Saturn V Center at Kennedy Space Center, which proudly shares our history and products with some three million people a year.

Our products have also managed to find themselves onboard the International Space Station and have been utilized by the Russian and Chinese space programs, as well!.

"I am proud to continue the principles of accuracy and quality that my father instilled throughout our organization. I’ve tried to instill the same principles in our children and am proud to see them implementing those principles as they work their way up the chain of command within the company.” – Cary Fisher
