BOULDER CITY, NV. (March 10, 2020).  Fisher Space Pen Co. maker of the iconic Astronaut pen flying aboard every manned space mission, has launched its new Matte Black Law Enforcement Cap-O-Matic with Blue Line pen in honor of America’s men and women in law enforcement. The company will donate a portion of the proceeds from their sale to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), a 501©(3) non-profit organization that provides resources, programs and services to survivors of law officer heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty.

The Matte Black Law Enforcement Cap-O-Matic with Blue Line (#M4BLEBL). For decades Law Enforcement professionals globally have turned to Fisher Space Pen for the most durable and reliable writing instruments. The new non-reflective matte black Cap-O-Matic with the LE Blue line printed down the face of the clip and barrel of the pen is made as a symbol of the company’s support for the law enforcement community and the work they do. Click to shop.

“Since my grandfather founded Fisher Space Pen, we have been strong supporters of our law enforcement and first responder communities. We are happy that we could manufacture an opportunity to do more on a national level to support our heroes,” said Matt Fisher, Vice President. “Giving back and being grateful are two important core values at Fisher Space Pen, which I believe these partnerships truly demonstrate.”

“C.O.P.S. is honored to be a charity of choice for such a historic and iconic company,” says Dianne Bernhard, Executive Director. “Thank you to Fisher Space Pen for supporting survivors and helping to promote the mission of rebuilding shattered lives among their customers.”

Fisher Space Pen Co. is a family-owned company proudly manufacturing Made in America products. The company was invited to the 2019 White House Made in America Showcase and was featured in FOX Business' Mornings with Maria. Last year, it celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the maiden flight of its iconic AG7 Original Astronaut Space Pen aboard NASA’s Apollo 7 Mission on October 11, 1968. The company was featured on ABC World News Tonight with David Muir’s “Made in America” series. Watch video.

The Fisher Space Pen brand has become an iconic symbol of American technology and design. It has also become part of American pop culture. Enjoyed and used by millions around the world, it is also the subject of hundreds of fan videos and has been featured on several TV programs including an episode of the hit series “Seinfeld” entitled "The Pen." All Fisher Space Pen products contain the patented pressurized ink refill which allows it to write upside down, under water, in extreme temperatures from -30 to +250 degrees F (-35 to +121 Celsius), over almost any surface and three times longer than the average pen.


When manned space missions began, astronauts had a problem finding writing instruments that would function properly and safely in space. The ink in regular ball-point 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, started thinking about how ordinary ballpoint pens would have trouble writing in space, but if a pen could be sealed and pressurized, it would keep the solvents from evaporating in the gravity-free vacuum of space.

After spending over $1 million dollars of his own money and years of research, Fisher finally 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. NASA astronauts began using the Fisher AG-7 Anti-Gravity Space Pen aboard the Apollo 7 Mission and Fisher Space Pen has been used on all manned space flights since, including NASA’s Space Shuttle Program missions, the Mir Space Station and the International Space Station as well as the Russian and Chinese space programs.
