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.

Personalisation, Gift Wrapping and Corporate Gifts
A further innovation from Cross was the launch of their personalisation service. In the early 1900s, they launched a novelty line of pencils in the shapes of knives, letter openers, rulers and screws.
All of our Cross products at Pen Sense follow this innovation and are perfect for gift giving, if you're looking to brighten someone's special day but don't have time to wrap then why not ask us to do it for you. We offer a choice between silver with black bow and card or lilac paper with matching bow and card for year-round wrapping, around the holidays we offer seasonal gift wrapping with the festive spirit. You may wish to leave the card blank or prefer a handwritten tag by a member of our staff, always completed with your requested message, written on premium quality paper.
Not only do we offer personalised engraving for gifts and special occasions but at Pen Sense, we offer a range of corporate gifting options for a number of high-end clients. We are able to engrave your logo, a message, award details and company name on a number of items, including plaque engravings and some larger items. See our engraving gallery for an idea of what we can offer your company.
Each Cross product is presented inside a bespoke presentation box, each box is perfect for a large engraved message, with your choice of gold or silver toned plaque and your choice of font. Make sure you double check the font styles before engraving, some fonts may not be to your liking and we do not take responsibility after a product is engraved, these items are not suitable for resale.
