    About Esterbrook “Estie”

    Times may be different, but the Esterbook values stay the same. The Esterbrook Pen Company, a true American Original, is rewriting its long success story in modern times with a fresh new pen collection based on a complete rebranding. Originally founded in 1858 by Richard Esterbrook, the Esterbrook Pen Company was one of the biggest and most beloved pen makers in the world with over 200 million produced and sold pens per year. US presidents Abraham Lincoln, JFK and Lyndon B. Johnson signed legislation with their Esterbrook pens. Disney artist Carl Banks brought Donald Duck to life with an Esterbrook No 356 and Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz used the No 914 for all his comic inkings. Now owned by Kenro, Esterbrook Pens has released a new range of quality pens at a great value.
