Promotional pencils

It’s one of the early writing tools of our times and often in our own lives what we first use when we learn to write, that is why a pencil is still regarded as a key implement today.

Of course, it has evolved over the centuries and now you can choose from wooden or metal, traditional or mechanical, coloured, multi-coloured or eco-friendly ones. There are hexagonal, round or triangular branded pencils in a multitude of colours and lead types. Then decide of you want it with or without an eraser.

They are an indispensable tool for tradespeople, artists and crafts lovers – a fundamental implement for people in education and much loved by millions of hotel residents and conference delegates. And then the pencil is pocketed, popped in suitcase or handbag and it’s off on its travels, spreading your message and brand ever further afield. Promotional pencils are the original note taker. A great corporate gift, business giveaway or branded souvenir.
