Does the president use one pen per letter when signing a landmark bill?

Asked by Sunny2 (18696 points ) April 25th, 2012

I was wondering when signing a bill with multiple pens, so people involved could get a souvenir, started. Obviously they didn’t use multiple quill pens in the 1700’s. And do they use one pen per letter so Gerald Ford would have had 10 pens to hand out and Dwight D. Eisenhower, 18, counting the period?
