Our annual Zippo Days event proudly celebrates Zippo Manufacturing Company founder and inventor of the Zippo windproof lighter, George G. Blaisdell. Coinciding with Mr. Blaisdell’s birthday on June 5th, the global celebration launches an exclusive collectible available only on our eCommerce websites which is inspired by one of Zippo’s original decoration methods and feature a distinctive bottom stamp. George G. Blaisdell designed his lighters to be beautiful as well as reliable, and the first decoration technique was developed shortly after Zippo’s founding in 1932.

This trio of Scottish Terriers was among the very first artistic designs to ever appear on a Zippo lighter. Developed soon after Zippo’s founding in 1932, the Etch Paint method could reproduce both simple and intricate images with multiple colours and quickly established Zippo’s enduring tradition of original artwork and custom designs. Etch Paint would eventually evolve into the tried-and-true Colour Image process we use today.

Using a combination of our Lustre and Colour Image processes, this Founder’s Day Web Exclusive Collectible features the iconic Scottie design next to our 90th anniversary logo on a Brushed Chrome 1935 Replica model. The lid commemorates June 5 as Founder’s Day and the reverse side of the lighter highlights Zippo’s history and founding principles. Each lighter is consecutively numbered and features a commemorative bottom stamp.
