Did you know…

… that today is Ballpoint Pen Sales Day? In 1945, the first ballpoint pen went on sale, 57 years after it was patented. New York’s Gimbels Department Store described the new pen as a “fantastic… miraculous fountain pen … guaranteed to write for two years without refilling!” On that first day of sales, Gimbels sold out its entire stock of 10,000 pens at $12.50 each.
