The Birth of an Icon
PARKER has always believed that all great things take time. This ethos began with the dream of a 25-year-old entrepreneur, the brand’s founder, George Safford Parker, who stated, ‘it will always be possible to make a better pen’. This philosophy is well embodied with Jotter: although it was not the first ballpoint pen to come to market, it was certainly one of the best. After nine years spent perfecting the research and technology, the iconic Jotter was launched in January 1954. For PARKER, launching a new pen was about introducing a model of best-in-class quality, design and performance."
A Colourful Revolution
Since its first launch, colours have always been at the heart of Jotters’ identity. Initially produced in only 4 colours (red, black, grey and green), the colour range quickly expanded to 6 new colours in 1956.

Produced in more than 100 colours over the years, Jotter has been able to adapt to all trends. These colours are still an endless source of inspiration nowadays. There is simply not a single colour that doesn’t suit the iconic shape of a Jotter."
The Parker Quality, Always
Its precise technology and timeless aesthetic mean that the Jotter continues to be an international reference today and a symbol of pioneering design. From helping the US Federal Government on R&D projects, to being the “Presidential Pen” of John F. Kennedy in 1961, Parker and Jotter’s reliability are not to be proven anymore."
