Pencils.com was registered in 1996. Our parent company, California Cedar Products Co., has been in the pencil industry for over 100 years and is the industry’s leading wood supplier. In the early days, Pencils.com was dedicated solely to providing information about the benefits of a high-quality pencil. Over time, the content expanded to include lesson plans for teachers, information on renewable resources, and pencil history.
Teachers began asking us where they could find high-quality pencils for their students. We realized it was getting harder and harder to find a decent pencil, so we started offering pencils from some of the best pencil manufacturers in the world on our site. We were the first to market with the Palomino Blackwing pencil, and share our HQ with Blackwing in the heart of the California Central Valley.
We’ve since expanded our offerings to include pencils, notebooks, sharpeners, and accessories from some of the world’s best brands. And, we still have our extensive library of pencil content.
