The first matte lighter (black) was introduced into Zippo's stock line in 1984 available in both regular and slim size. Soon after the first introduction of the matte lighter four more colors were introduced: blue, burgundy, green, and grey. Following close after, the Zippo logo was imprinted on the lighter and a border was added. It wasn't until 2012 when Zippo introduced pink matte to the slim matte collection. Today, the slim matte lighters are available in pink, black, ebony with logo, and black with logo and border.
