Durable and practical pencils
Write or draw blueprints, school assignments, and casual sketches with pencils featuring several point sizes and barrel colors. Rubber grips on pen barrels offer easy handling, so you can be as accurate as possible. A few pencil brand options in the selection are BIC®, Pilot®, and Dixon®. Clear pencil barrels in select models make it easy to check how much lead is left. Clips are another common feature with mechanical pencils, allowing you to attach them to a shirt pocket or a notebook while on the go. Browse a variety of bulk deals to supply small or large offices, schools, and art studios with ample writing supplies.
A traditional wooden pencil comes with different lead types
Pencil lead consists of graphite mixed with clay. The amount of clay determines the hardness of lead, which impacts the darkness of text and lines. Durable lead material resists breaking under some pressure, so you don't have to reload them constantly. Lead advances easily due to the swift pen mechanism, so it can improve your workflow while working.
The harder the pencil, the lighter in color the marks are. At Quill, you can select the right business supplies and writing utensils, along with the lead hardness that best fits your projects. Here are a few lead size options:
- #1: This lead is very soft. Use it for bold, thick lines.
- #2: This medium-soft lead is the standard for school work. Use it for standardized tests, scanned forms, and day-to-day writing.
- #3 and #4: These harder leads leave light lines. They are most commonly used for drafting and engineering work.
Choose the right size when resupplying pencils, and don't forget other office products such as paper, staplers, and scissors.
Wooden pencils offer flexible choices
A hexagon-shaped barrel makes a wooden lead pencil easy to grip, and the shape prevents it from rolling along the desk or off a drafting table. When you choose writing implements like Ticonderoga® pencils, you start with the advantage of pre-sharpened lead, making them convenient for travel and off-site meetings. The lead in a wooden pencil is typically smudge-free, and markings are easily removed with an attached eraser. Some pencils are PMA certified as nontoxic, which is good news for the pencil-chewers in your office and classroom. Cedar barrels, one of the popular woods used in pencils, are easy to sharpen.
Besides traditional yellow or black barrels, you can choose cute pencils with bright colors and patterns, such as glitter, animals, camo, and more to add a punch of fun to work. Pre-sharpened golf pencils are also efficient for taking notes on paper in meetings, filling in business forms, for noting scores in games like golf and bingo, for election ballots, or in other situations when you need a lot of pencils.
Teachers find erasable checking pencils with red or blue leads convenient for in-class checking, editing, and other collaborative work. To further embellish work once you’ve sketched your design, use pens, markers, and retractable ballpoint pens from Quill.
A mechanical pencil is convenient for on-the-go writing
With no need to sharpen the polymer leads, mechanical pencils provide easy functionality outside the office. Available with 0.5, 0.7, and 0.9-millimeter lead thicknesses, these pencils let you write fine, medium, or bold lines that are smudge-proof and erasable. Some styles come pre-loaded with several leads, while others are refillable. The plastic barrels are recyclable, while the option to replenish both leads and erasers makes them economical. Some barrels have an easy-to-grip hexagonal shape, and others have soft comfort grips. There's no need to resharpen mechanical pencils, which makes them a time-saver and ideal for busy offices and taking school tests.
Versatile pencils and other supplies
Pencil packages in assorted barrel colors are another option, giving you the full-color spectrum that sparks up office decor. Along with staples, erasers, and other office supplies, pencils are an essential part of core office tools, so staff can stay productive at all times. Select mechanical pens feature no rubber, making them more suitable for environmentally conscious corporations and schools. Take advantage of the full array of pencils, binder clips, and more at Quill to prepare for upcoming writing and sketching projects.
