With over 18 years of education, I can personally attest to how many pencils are used every year in the education system. Pencils have always been an integral part of ones academic life. From your first days in kindergarten to Masters and Doctorate programs across the country, pencils are used everyday by thousands of people.
I often find myself even today in my professional life using a pencil more than I use a pen. Pencils are much more fluid and dependable. I also personally love the smell of the graphite when you sharpener the pencil.
Pencils serve many useful functions outside of our school systems. Many sports and outdoor activities require pencils. Churches and organizations use pencils in their activities. Games and trivia often use pencils to track details of the game. As you can see there is no shortage of uses for pencils.
Pencils also offer a great deal of value in spreading your brand. Many organizations add their logo and message in order to create brand awareness and message recognition. With so many options for imprinting you pencil, you now have more choices than ever for advertising.
If you are a tradesman, pencils make excellent give aways for marketing your company. Often times carpenter pencils will be given away at the home center or the local lumber yard with the contact information of anyone from landscapers to electricians. Imprinted mechanical pencils are also great for drafters and other that uses pencils in their professional life.
