History of rollerball pens

Somewhat younger than their ballpoint pen sibling, rollerball pens were first introduced back in the early 1970s. By combining a mobile ball and liquid ink, engineers discovered writing instruments that the could produce a much smoother line on a variety of surfaces. Thanks to some significant technological advances during the 80s and 90s, the improvement of rollerball pen performance increased dramatically, and enabled them to be manufactured to an even higher standard at much greater volume.

Benefits of rollerball pens

As writing instruments go, it’s tough to find anything that’s quite as versatile and adaptable as the rollerball pen. Perfect for writing and art, these pens sit somewhere between a fountain pen and ballpoint pen in terms of look, feel and usage. Thanks to the type of ink used in a rollerball pen, the writing experience is particularly smooth, and this makes for a great note taking pen or for those who particularly value neat handwriting and creative doodling.

Despite this, rollerballs are popular because they still offer the convenience of a ballpoint. They can be carried easily, they’re not messy and they’re also very hard-wearing. They’re affordable, too; when it comes to price, a rollerball pen will usually sit somewhere between fountain pens and ballpoint pens.
