Papermate is easily identified by its &lsquo\;two hearts&rsquo\; logo, a business who have been providing performance driven pens, pencils and correction products for over half a century. Stemming from the early 1940s as Patrick J. Frawley took the opportunity to acquire a struggling ballpoint pen parts manufacturer, the Paper Mare pen was born less than a decade later, benefitting from Frawley&rsquo\;s revolutionary new fast drying ink. In 1953, the company launched the most expensive marketing campaign in pen history at 2 million dollars, endorsed by the stars of the time with a confident 20 year guarantee against mechanical failure, whilst promising no more leaks or messy ink stains. Initially launched in 1987, the &lsquo\;Flexigrip&rsquo\; pens can be found just about everywhere today, with a revolutionary rubberised grip which presented the user with a reliable, smooth, accurate and comfortable writing tool which has remained as popular today as it was then. In modern times, Papermate continues to bring leading edge products to the table including their silky smooth gel pens and full length grip mechanical pencil. From your first day at school to jotting a brief note to the Grandchildren, Papermate influences every stage of life. Their mission is to provide the most extensive range of contemporary writing and correction products to assist in communication and self-expression.
