BAlÍGRAFOS.ORG

ANOTHER EXCLUSIVE PRODUCT FROM THE CREATORS OF THE AUTHENTIC CORUCOPIAS CARDS.

A “Balígrafo” is a pen made with a used bullet shell casing (in Spanish, “bala” (bullet) + “bolígrafo” (pen) = “balígrafo”), and is used to sign peace agreements. It symbolizes a change towards a better, happier future. Bullet pens were used to sign the peace agreement in an armed conflict that lasted more than 50 years in Colombia, and we’re convinced that they can be used to resolve any problem at any level.

That’s why we are committed to recycling used shell casings, revealing their hidden beauty and turning them into beautiful Balígrafos that we can make available to the public so that family members, friends, companies, spouses, in-laws, and anyone who wants to resolve a conflict can do so with Baligrafos.org.

Inspired by their stories and energized by their awards, we are convinced of their potential. We want to bring Balígrafos to everyone who wants to resolve a conflict and make the world a better place.

A BETTER WORLD

A world with less conflict is, without a doubt, a better world, and this is a nice and original way to invite someone to make peace, resolving conflicts in any setting.

MADE IN SOLIDARITY

Our Balígrafos are sold exclusively by non-profit organizations. This way, by buying a Balígrafo, you are helping an NGO, sports club, etc.

ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCT

Our bullet pens are made artisanally with used shell casings whose beauty we restore, and to which we add a 100% recycled cardboard interior.

THE STORY OF THE BULLET PEN

A BEAUTIFUL STORY OF PEACE

Bullet pens have been around for many years and have been sold in many forms. In fact, our promoter at Balígrafos for Peace, Asensio M. Tomás, bought one in 1991 at the Spanish department store, El Corte Inglés (see photo), although they gained notoriety in 2016 when they were used to sign the peace agreement between the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the Colombian government to end an armed conflict that took thousands upon thousands of victims. The mandatary gave bullet pens to the 17 heads of state who joined him in the peace agreement signing ceremony. When the parties signed the cease fire and treaty to permanently and bilaterally end the hostility, Santos gave a bullet pen to the leader of FARC, Rodrigo Londoño Echeverri, aka “Timochenko”, with an engraving that said: “Bullets wrote our past, education will write our future”.

However, not long ago a journalist wrote that the idea was copied from renowned Santander painter Orlando Morales Cañón, current director of the Bucaramanga Museum of Modern Art, who in 1996 designed and crafted the “balígrafo”, as found in his work known to Santander residents. In his painting, he captures the tricolored Colombian flag in the background, and inside it, a bullet shell casing converted into a pen, with the caption: “Everything can change”.

THIS IDEA EARNED NUMEROUS AWARDS AND INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION:
