Where would we be without ballpoint pens?

Still leaking ink everywhere, I assume.

In 1938, Hungarian journalist Laszlo Biro patented the first successful ballpoint pen, inspired by the quick-drying ink used in newspaper printing. This revolutionary writing instrument provided a smoother, more reliable alternative to fountain pens, making on-the-go writing easier and more accessible.

And that is why, to this day, ballpoint pens are referred to as “biros” in the UK.

Keep on writing!
