Cross Writing Instruments
Cross Stationery & Refills
For well over 150 years, people have enjoyed giving, receiving and using writing instruments crafted by Cross. Richard Cross and Edward W. Bradbury established this wonderful brand back in 1839 in the town of Providence, Rhode Island. The earliest items to leave the factory were elegantly tooled gold and silver casings for wooden pencils. However, in the decades that followed, Cross developed a reputation for manufacturing, the most sophisticated of writing instruments - fountain pens, ballpoint pens, rollerball pens & pen sets.

The 'Peerless' Fountain Pen
In 1889 The Cross Pen Co. created its very first fountain pen. The matchless elegance and precision of this beautiful instrument led to it being named "Peerless." This fountain pen soon became an American design classic.
The Townsend - The Presidents' Pen
In 1938, Cross launched its magnificent Art Deco Fountain Pen. So successful did it become that the decision was taken to re-style it and name it The Townsend, after the famous family of gold and silversmiths. In subsequent years, this pen was used by numerous U.S. Presidents, earning it the name, The Presidents' Pen.
Cross Develops the Ballpoint Pen
The ballpoint pen was invented in 1945. However, early models were crude and unreliable. Cross refused to jump onto the bandwagon until it could develop the technology to its own strict levels of perfection. Their technicians spent many years painstakingly testing and adapting ballpoint technology before finally releasing the Cross Quality Ballpoint Pen in 1953.
The World's Most Admired Writing Instruments
In the 1970s, Cross chose Japan for their very first overseas distributorship. Since then, the company has continued to meet international demand for fine writing instruments. Cross is now represented in eighty-nine countries around the world.
