April 4, 2022

BOULDER CITY, NV. (April 4, 2022). To commemorate National 911 Public Safety Telecommunicator’s Week, Fisher Space Pen Co. introduces its new Gold Line Space Pen in support of 911 dispatchers. Fisher Space Pen will donate a portion of sales of its Gold Line Space Pen to benefit The First Responders Children's Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides college scholarships and financial grants to children with first responder parents who have been killed or injured in the line of duty. As with every Fisher Space Pen, the Gold Line writes upside down, under water, in extreme temperatures from -30° to +250° F (-35° to +121° C), over almost any surface, and three times longer than the average pen. Shop the M4BDGL

"We owe a debt of gratitude to the First Responder men and women on the front lines who help to keep our country safe," says Matt Fisher, Vice President. "Our First Responder Series represents our efforts to contribute to our nation's brave first responders who sacrifice so much."

Fisher Space Pen donates a portion of sales from its First Responders Series to corresponding charities: The Thin Orange Line benefits The National Disaster Search Dog Foundation, the Thin Green Line proudly supports the work of The National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, the Thin Red Line benefits Hope for Heroes, the Thin Blue Line benefits Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) and the Thin White Line benefits the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians Foundation (NAEMT Foundation).

Fisher Space Pen is a small, family-run business manufacturing here in America at its plant in Boulder City, Nevada. The company's products were recently featured on FOX & Friends Made in America Products Showcase. In addition, the company participated in the White House Made in America Showcase and was featured in FOX Business' Mornings with Maria, as well as on ABC World News Tonight with David Muir "Made in America" series. Fisher Space Pen is used on every crewed space mission, including Russian and Chinese space programs, and enjoyed by millions worldwide. Today, the company has grown to over 65 full-time employees, proudly manufacturing high-quality writing instruments, shipping over 1 million pens per year to distributors in over 50 countries. Fisher Space Pen remains among the most preferred ballpoint pens around the world.

The Fisher Space Pen brand has become an iconic symbol of American technology and design worldwide. For example, its famous Bullet Space Pen is part of the permanent collection at New York's Museum of Modern Art as an example of classic industrial design. It has also become part of American pop culture and the subject of hundreds of fan videos and several films and TV programs, including an episode of the hit series "Seinfeld" titled "The Pen."

A Space Technology that improves life on Earth. In 2021, Fisher Space Pen and Paul C. Fisher were inducted into Space Foundation Space Technology Hall of Fame,  recognizing the groundbreaking pressurized refill technology invented by Fisher, which helps astronauts write in space and makes life better for millions on Earth.

Looking to the Future. In July 2021, Fisher Space Pen created a commemorative Infinium Space Pen emblazoned with Virgin Galactic’s Evolution of Flight design, used by Sir Richard Branson and the Unity 22 Crew to sign the flight log before their historic spaceflight. Watch Flight Log Signing Video. The company also donated a Fisher Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Space Pen & Coin Set to fly aboard Inspiration4, the first all-civilian mission to orbit, which launched on a SpaceX rocket on September 15. The space-flown set will be auctioned at a gala event in December to raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.


Paul C. Fisher created a patented pressurized ink refill, which uses gas to force thixotropic ink to flow, even in zero gravity. Thousands also love Fisher Space Pens on Earth for their durability, design, and functionality. Their patented pressurized refill allows them to write upside down, under water, in extreme temperatures from -30° to +250° F (-35° to +121° C), over almost any surface, and three times longer than the average pen. Watch How They Work.

When crewed space missions began, astronauts had a problem finding writing instruments that function properly and safely in space. The ink in regular ballpoint pens wouldn't flow in zero gravity. Instead, Astronauts used pencils, but the lead often broke and became a hazard floating in the capsule's atmosphere. Paul C. Fisher, who was then president of the Fisher Pen Company and had been manufacturing ballpoint pens since 1948, took on the challenge to create a pen that would work in zero gravity.

After spending over $1 Million of his own money and years of research, Fisher developed his patented pressurized ink cartridge that keeps solvents from evaporating and allows ink to flow in zero gravity. Fisher sent samples of his prototype to Dr. Robert Gilruth, Director of the Houston Space Center. The prototypes were thoroughly tested by NASA and passed all tests. As a result, NASA astronauts began using the Fisher AG-7 Anti-Gravity Space Pen aboard the Apollo 7 Mission. Fisher Space Pen has been used on all crewed space flights since, including NASA missions, the ISS, and space programs worldwide.


For 20 years, First Responders Children’s Foundation has provided college scholarships to children with first responder parents who have been killed or injured in the line of duty.  The Foundation also awards financial grants to families enduring significant hardship and supports, promotes and facilitates educational activities and programs created and operated by first responder organizations to benefit children or the communities in which they live.  The Foundation also pays for funerals of first responders who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  More information about First Responders Children’s Foundation is available at
