A pencil sharpener is a classroom essential

With a great amount of school work not done in ink, there should be plenty of pencil sharpeners in the classroom. They're typically on the annual supply list for students and, along with multiple packages of Ticonderoga® pencils, are an essential product for teachers. Depending upon space, you can set up a steel wall-mounted or tabletop crank-handled sharpener, or an electric one, featuring auto-shut and overheat protection. Small plastic sharpeners, with or without screw-on lids, should be kept on hand for individual needs. They also make nice party favors and are an excellent addition to class reward chests.

Pencil sharpeners keep sketching tools in prime condition

When you're sketching something with colored pencils, you don't want to have to stop just because their points dull and there's no sharpener. Keeping one with art supplies is a practical way to always be ready to work on projects. Some sharpeners have variably sized holes designed to hone charcoal and graphite pencils, while others are designed for crayons. Selections include AC-powered or battery-powered models. Some are composed of recycled materials, while others include an eraser or replacement blades.

Place a pencil sharpener near other everyday desk supplies

One of the most appealing features of pencil sharpeners is that they comfortably fit in drawers and desk organizers, and don't take up much room on tables. When browsing inventories at Quill, pick up the other supplies necessary for common tasks. Stock up on copy paper, file folders, tape, and fasteners, and set up a cup with mechanical pencils, markers, and pens. Place wall sharpeners near a cabinet, shelf, or basket, so extra items are easily accessible.
