National Pencil Day 2019 & Shepenco CREATE-A-PENCIL

With today being National Pencil Day 2019, I’m including a look at the Shepenco CREATE-A-PENCIL. It has me poking around to see if I can order a quantity smaller than the 500 minimum for a custom pencil!

National Pencil Day 2019

There was an article on Thursday at – Shepenco Donates Pencils to Students For National Pencil Day by John Corrigan

“In honor of National Pencil Day on March 30, Shepenco (asi/86850) recently donated over 9,100 pencils to students in Shelbyville, TN.” …

“As a bonus history lesson, the donation commemorated Hymen Lipman receiving the first patent for attaching an eraser to the end of a pencil on March 30, 1858.”

You’ll want to be sure to check out the Shepenco Virtual Catalog.

Next, I’m including their summary on using the Shepenco Create-A-Pencil.

“Here at Shelbyville Pencil Company we want you to find a promotional product that is WRITE for you. Now, you can CREATE A PENCIL in just four easy steps. Start by choosing the barrel color of your #2 core pencil, select your ferrule color, select your eraser color and then add your logo or design! These pencils are perfect for any occasion like fundraisers, tradeshows, elections or new business parties. Go with a simplistic design or let your creative juices flow! The choice is all yours. Let us help you design your dream pencil. “

Furthermore, in looking at their About page, it shares “Shelbyville Pencil Company, SHEPENCO, is a family-owned and operated screen-printing plat located in Shelbyville, Tennessee, that has been making quality writing instruments since 1933…”

In conclusion, if I end up ordering a custom pencil for AnchoredScraps – of course, the question is – will it be the traditional yellow color? I’m thinking of that with a blue eraser and logo – stay tuned! Join me tomorrow as we wrap up March with my monthly blog recap.

Happy National Pencil Day 2019!
