If you think back to your first days of learning to write, you probably will remember the standard pencil you became familiar with. That style of pencil has probably served you well through the years – working on math problems, doing the New York Times crossword puzzle, and perhaps writing your schedule down because your boss changes it so much that using ink is a lesson in futility. However, it might be time to consider the uses of carpenter pencils. They aren’t just for carpenters to use; they have some advantages that make them useful to just about anyone.
Their flat, rectangular shape is great for when you’ll be setting your pencil down and would rather it didn’t roll away from you. That makes it ideal on a job site. Being easier to grip doesn’t hurt, either. Carpenter pencils are also ideal when you need thick, bold markings, as the lead is much larger than a traditional pencil. That means when you’re writing your schedule on a calendar, it will be easy to read.
Here’s another unconventional way to use carpenter pencils: marketing. The flat area is ideal for adding customization, so they make a unique giveaway at tradeshows. The best way to get remembered is to offer something memorable, so if you want to do something a bit different than the typical handouts, consider carpenter pencils. They also make a nice promotional gift if you’re in the construction industry. In addition, give them to your employees to use on the job, and it is inevitable that they’ll end up in many different places, spreading your brand far and wide.
