Calais was inspired by art-deco design, with an asymmetrical tapered profile, polished chrome details, and a selection of fine finishes. It’s one of the more modern Cross collections that appeal to those who appreciate the simple pleasure of a stylish everyday pen that expresses their personality.
Each year more than 17,000 American children fall victim to illegal gun violence. Now there is a new way to get involved and address this problem. Every purchase of a Cross Calais Liberty United ballpoint pen supports children in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the USA.

For more than 158 years, Cross has re-invented writing instruments, combining design ingenuity with jewelry-quality craftsmanship. We were America's first manufacturer of quality writing instruments, and that means that we've been making pens people use, depend on and enjoy for a long time.
While our history is a story all its own, it all began with Richard Cross, who founded the company the same year both the Smithsonian and the sewing machine were born, just as Samuel Morse's magnetic telegraph pushed Westward and America braced for a war with Mexico.
Cross was a highly skilled pen and pencil maker, who passed his knowledge on to his son, Alonzo Townsend Cross. In 1916, the Cross family sold the company to an employee, Walter R. Boss, who led our growth into the company you know today. Today, Walter's grandsons are at the helm of the company, which became a public security traded on the American Stock Exchange in 1971.
What we're most proud of, though, isn't all that's changed in the 158 years we've been around. It's what hasn't changed. Headquartered in beautiful Lincoln, Rhode Island, just outside Providence, A. T. Cross is proud to still be a part of the community we helped build. And we still make products unsurpassed in quality and value, one at a time and by hand, just as Richard Cross did.
