Cheap Promotional Pencils

We'll start out with the most basic discount promotional school supplies by telling you a little bit about the custom logo imprinted pencils for schools that we carry. We'll quickly introduce you to six different styles in the section below.


Buy Write Pencils - Cheap Custom Imprinted Pencils for Schools

Our Buy Write pencils are aptly named, as they're a great buy and offer a firm and effective writing experience. These discount promotional pencils for schools are made from natural wood and feature #2 graphite. This makes them a natural choice for standardized tests and any forms that need to be processed, as #2 is, in nearly all such cases, the preferred graphite style. Each of these personalized pencils has a high-density rubber eraser, attached to the pencil via an attractive brass ferrule. Available in many different colors, these custom logo imprinted pencils make for great bulk back to school supply gifts and will do your school or business logo proud when imprinted with your design. Their standard size of 7½ inches long makes them a great fit for desks, purses, pocketbooks, pencil cases, and nearly any other storage device you'd like to use.

Hex Pencil - Best Customized Hexagon Pencils

Next up in our list of the best bulk school supplies are our Hex Pencils. These custom hexagon pencils get their name from their shape. Each has six sides which are more wide and flat than what you'd see in a standard pencil. Balance and control is the name of the game, as they're specifically designed to stay in place and not fall off desks or out of users' hands. Our custom hexagon pencils, despite their distinguishing features, are still #2 pencils. The number of a pencil actually refers to the hardness of the graphite inside, with #2 graphite providing the right balance of sturdiness, control, and weight to produce marks that aren't too light and scattered or too dark and piercing. 

Our promotional hexagon pencils can be ordered in several different colors, though when it comes to your logo imprint, gold, silver, white, and black are recommended for prime visibility. Each one offers an imprint area containing three lines of straight line text, comprised of 35 characters. For an extra one cent per pencil, they can be sharpened prior to shipping. If you like a thick and sturdy pencil that won't go anywhere unless firmly directed to, you might also want to take a gander at our personalized carpenter pencils with logo imprints.  



                                                                                 Personalized Hexagon Pencils & Promotional Carpenter Pencils

Twist Crayons - Unique Promotional School Supplies

As the heading above indicates, our promotional twist crayons are truly among the more unique customizable school supplies out there. Each unit consists of a transparent vinyl pouch, imprinted with your logo, and housing six different colored crayons. The colors are the same in every package, comprising a collection of blue, red, yellow, green, orange, and black. The package has a tucking flap closure and comes with a one-color logo imprint. Extra colors can be added for an additional 25 cents per color per unit. 

What sets our custom twist crayons apart from the more traditional styles is that they come in a form similar to that of a rectractable twist pen. Twisting the caps causes the crayon tips to come in and out, ensuring that they won't make any accidental marks or stains when not in use. Due to their more complex nature and small parts, they are not recommended for children under three years of age. However, they make perfect promotional products for elementary schools & art supply stores. Take advantage of the lack of shipping charges by buying our wholesale twist crayons in bulk before the school year begins.

We'll show you two of the top examples in the following section.

Pocket Highlighters - Bulk Pocket Highlighters for Schools

Obviously, due to their handy size and oft-overlooked yet still important pocket clips, these guys are dubbed with the name of Pocket Highlighters. They print in bright, vibrant colors in a fade resistant ink, applied by a pricesely cut chisel tip. This allows for thinner lines and more intricate details to be drawn. These wholesale highlighters for schools come in your choice of translucent blue, translucent pink, translucent orange, or translucent yellow, as can be see in the image below.
