Here at Studio 602, we love all things creative and pencil-related, so it’s only natural that we love custom pencils. Here’s our list of ten creative ways you can customize pencils for parties, merchandising and everything in between.
10 Ways to Use Custom Pencils
1. Personalized Gifts
The holiday season may be over, but birthdays are never far off. Instead of a worn out gift that they’ve seen a thousand times, give them a personalized pencil set that reminds them how much you care (and how much older they are than you!).
2. Album, Book or Movie Releases
If you’re a musician trying to promote a new album, custom imprint pencils give you the ability to promote it and sell merchandise at the same time. Same goes for authors or film directors. No one expects to see a custom pencil at a musician’s merch table… and that’s exactly why it’s a perfect fit.
3. Show School Spirit
Smells like… pencils? Hand custom pencils with your school’s colors and slogan out at your next rally or turn heads in math class with a set of custom pencils that show your school spirit. You might even be able to get some extra credit along the way!
4. Identification Around the Office
Do your pencils always seem to find their way off your desk and into the hands of your coworkers? With custom pencils, you’ll be able to identify the culprit right away, so you can spend your time getting things done instead of interrogating suspects.
Sure, you could shell out the big bucks for a billboard or local television commercial slot, but sometimes the little things can be just as effective. Custom pencils with your company’s logo or name allow you to get your brand directly into the hands of consumers.
6. Favorite teams
Show some team spirit! Whether you want to promote your local little league squad or your company softball team, custom pencils can be customized to match any teams color scheme and let you show your support in style: with a pencil.
7. Business cards
Next time, instead of handing out a business card, how about handing out a business pencil? The concept is the same, but instead of a disposable piece of paper that will most likely wind up in the trash, you are giving them tool that they can use and are, therefore, less likely to toss out.
8. Save the date
If you are planning a birthday party, wedding, baby shower or some other social gathering, you want to make sure that your guests save the date. A custom pencil with the date printed on its shaft will serve a constant reminder of the event and make a bigger impact than an invitation stuck up on the fridge.
Whether you’re expecting a baby, or your baby is all grown up and graduating from college, custom imprint pencils let you share the important events in your life in a special way and help make the announcement just as memorable as the event it precedes.
10. Super Bowl Party Favors
The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and that means one thing: Super Bowl parties. Instead of using the party favors left over from Christmas and New Year’s, print some custom pencils for both teams and hold your own pencil grudge match!
