Push Pins were the first of this family of stationery products to be invented in 1900 by Edwin Moore. He founded the ‘Moor Push Pin Company’ to get this useful new product to market,. At first he described these as ‘pins with a handle’ but ‘Push Pin’ had a better ring to it so that has stuck since he started using it.
Push Pins were soon the subject of innovation by German clockmaker Johann Kirsten who, in 1903 produced a variation. His product is known as a ‘thumb tac’ in the USA and ‘Drawing Pin’ in the UK. It is of course is equally useful as a temporary fixing pin.
