The History Of Sheaffer 

It was the invention of the lever-fill fountain pen in 1907 that ignited a dream and gave the W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company its favored position in the industry. Little did Walter know, his namesake company would become a worldwide symbol of quality, craftsmanship, and innovation over the next 100 years. With an inspired team of hardworking and dedicated employees, the W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company focused on delivering unique and innovative products of the highest quality. Each writing instrument radiated true craftsmanship and delicate attention to detail; genuine representations of the passion that Walter and his employees had in creating and offering products that would be a staple in American history. During its first year of business, the company captured 3% of the United States writing instrument market with sales of $100,000 and a profit of $17,500, or 50% of Walter’s initial investment. As the W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company continued to succeed, the company expanded its facilities and the number of employees steadily grew.

In its early years, the W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company captured the interest of America and other countries around the world. After the invention of the lever-fill fountain pen, the company introduced several advancements and improvements, fulfilling its desire to offer inventive writing instruments. Some of these included Sheaffer® Skrip® ink in 1922 (still used today), FEATHERTOUCH® two-way point in 1931, TOP-WELL® ink bottle in 1933, the Touchdown filling mechanism in 1949 and the famous Inlaid Nib in 1959 – Sheaffer’s unique writing unit still used and respected by fine writing instrument experts today. These advancements defined the W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company. By the time it celebrated its 50th anniversary, the Sheaffer® brand was distributed, recognized, and highly respected around the globe. The company excelled in developing innovative products that paralleled the growing and changing consumer fashions and tastes. It built a reputation for producing classic and timeless designs, the finest finishes, highly sought-after special editions, and the highest-quality inks and writing units. This was promoted by the introduction of the “White Dot®” icon in 1924. Today the “White Dot®” is presented on every writing instrument produced by Sheaffer and is respected worldwide as a symbol of quality and excellence.
