History of Paper Clips

Paper clip is a fairly simple invention invented thousands of years back through the early ancestor who first worked in iron or tin. It is infamously difficult to work with steel, especially when little things like wire for paper clips should be made.

In fact, the paper clip was not invented before the 1830s, it was the year when John Ireland Howe, an American doctor invented a machine that made pins with solid head. Before that, pins were made by hand not affordable by many seamstresses at a time when most of the clothes are handmade.

Paper paper clips and pins are pretty different but at the same time they are both have a common goal, for keeping things clipped or pinned together in an organized way. After the successful marketing of pins in just a few cents per packet Instead of expensive handmade pins, the demand for the pins for holding bundles of papers together was unquenchable.

The first paper clip can be made after many years at the end of 1867, it was the paper clip Fay also called cinch paper clip. This is a small length of wire forming the backbone of the clip between every bend. The patent was registered in 1867 with Samuel Fay paper clip but it is hard not available until the beginning of the next century.

On the other hand, there Another design known as the Wright paper clip was invented by Erlman Wright was patented in 1877, but it also is marketed in the same time. The paper clip is marketed Wright specifically as a replacement object for the page, and holding newspaper stitching together.

A paper clip called pearl paper clip is made in England during the early 1880s, this is the version which is most common in this period with two round ends, it is first imported to the U.S. in 1892. The paper clip is not patented England and the Cushman & Denison company acquired a trademark on the name in 1904.

According to a popular legend, a Norwegian named Johan Vaaler invented paper clip in 1899 and registered a patent in 1899 in Germany and in 1901 U.S.. Vaaler was actually designed his paper clip and registered for patent in that year, sadly His designs were not successful and not worked as there is no torque applied when the clips are held together resulting clip came lost.

Since many are unaware of Fay and Wright or even the English origin of the gem paper clip, Vaaler was incorrectly declared the inventor of the paperclip. The real inventor of paperclip is the American - Samuel Fay.
