THE COLLECTIBLE LIGHTER REPLICATES THE IMAGE ON THE ZIPPO SIGNET RING, DESIGNED BY FOUNDER GEORGE G. BLAISDELL. THE REVERSED LIKENESS ON THE SIGNET RING DISPLAYS THE IMAGE CORRECTLY WHEN DEPRESSED INTO THE HOT WAX SEAL, USED TO SECURE A DOCUMENT OF ENVELOPE.

THE IMAGE DISPLAYS A 1932 LIGHTER, WITH ZIPPO AT THE TOP AND BRADFORD, PENNA. BELOW. THE YEAR 1933 IS SHOWN DIRECTLY BENEATH THE LIGHTER. AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE SEAL IS THE WORD LABORANT, LATIN FOR “THEY WORK”.

About Zippo Founder’s Day
Zippo is the globally recognized brand – and the click heard around the world – thanks to the pioneering efforts of Zippo founder and inventor of the Zippo Windproof Lighter, George G. Blaisdell.
Mr. Blaisdell was a man of great integrity, great enthusiasm, and great ideas. He founded the company with the promise that his windproof lighter would work, or it would be fixed free of charge for the lifetime of the product. We still honor the famous Zippo Guarantee every single day.
His infectious enthusiasm was evident in the way he lived his life: paying success forward within his community, never resting on the success of his windproof lighter and instead asking “What can we do next?” of himself and his team.
Ideas are what made the Zippo brand grow from a single, beloved, pocket lighter into a diverse line of lifestyle products. Mr. Blaisdell realized early on that beyond reliability, Zippo lighters were stylish. Every year since he founded the company and began selling lighters, Zippo has offered new finishes, new decoration methods, and an increasing array of artwork to enthusiastic consumers who can’t resist buying more than one Zippo lighter design.
And although Mr. Blaisdell passed away in 1978, his incomparable spirit lives on within everything the company does. Not just because his grandson, George B. Duke is the current Owner and Chairman of the Board, but because the core teachings of our founder are woven (incorporated) into everything the company does and stands for.
Integrity, enthusiasm and innovation are what makes Zippo today the same company our fans have loved for nearly ninety years.
