The Smart Pencil
Smart Pencils are unique pencils that help students learn phonics, addition facts, and multiplication facts while holding a pencil.
Smart Pencils are the only triangular shaped pencils that have the multiplication math facts printed on each side of the pencil. Students rotate the pencil to get the next number to the multiplication fact. It is easier to hold than the traditional pencil and it can be used as a tool for students to master their multiplication facts. My product is currently patent pending.
I need your help to be able to create addition/subtraction pencils and phonics Smart Pencils. Once I have all three types of pencils I can expand my little company and get these pencils into the hands of all children in schools. My plan is to get my pencils into the mass market and make them affordable for all children. With your support I can get one step closer to reaching this goal. Together we can add a little value to the pencil.
With the new orders for addition and subtraction pencils, I will be able to sell more pencils to a wider market. At this time I am limited to students who are learning their timetables. Also, with your help I will be able to lower the price. These pencils are unique to make in that each pencils has three different prints on all three sides. This is what makes it expensive than a traditional pencil.
Risks and challenges
Currently the risks are getting a good quality of pencils and better packaging. I learned from my first set of pencils that the second set needs to have better packaging. We are looking into the pillow packaging, or a small box. This way students keep their pencils together. There might be some delays, with manufacturing the new addition/subtraction pencils and the phonics pencils. I am currently working on the samples. They are usually sent FEDX to speed up the process. We also want to make sure we have a solid product for our customers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
