Since its creation, Smencils has become the premier scented pencil and scented pen supplier to the fundraising industry. Smencil brand products are one of the best fundraising ideas we've seen for getting kids excited about fundraising, while using recycled products and thinking green.
The Creation of Smencils
Each Smencil starts as old recycled newspaper tightly rolled around #2 graphite. After the desired thickness is acquired, they are then hardened; this allows them to be sharpened just like wood pencils. Next, the pencils and pens are soaked in gourmet liquid scents and then dried. Once the Smencil is fully dried, erasers and stickers are applied. To help maintain the scent for at least two years, each Smencil is placed in its own freshness tube.
Smencils and the Environment
An important part of doing business today revolves around being responsible for the environment. Smencils achieves this by using recycled newspaper for their scented pens and pencils, corn-based biodegradable plastic for the freshness tubes, and biodegradable erasers. To help understand what this does for our environment, consider this: one average sized cedar tree will make about 172,000 wood pencils, this same amount of Smencils can be made from 430 newspapers.
High Profit Smencils
While being one of the most unique fundraising items out there, Smencils manages to be one of the highest profit fundraisers as well. Be sure to check out our Smencils fundraising products page to find the best scented pencils or scented pens for your fundraiser. The high profit for Smencils and Smens depends on the case and assortment purchased.
Keeping things Fresh
Once or twice a year, Smecils will release new scents and products for the fundraising industry. By keeping the scents and designs changing, sellers can be sure to always have something new to offer their fundraising customers.
Protecting the Fundraising Industry
Worried about your prospective customers being able to buy Smecils at retail stores? While it is true, your customers will be able to buy Smencils or Smens at retail stores; they will be cheaper to buy through your fundraising group. The pricing structure provided to retail stores is higher than that offered to fundraising groups, this allows your group to sell the Smencils under retail price.
