Where Can School Counselors Find Great Deals on Pencils for Incentives and Giveaways?

Raymond Geddes Incentive Pencils 144 Pack (64244)A reader asked for suggestions of where to get good deals on bulk pencils for incentives and giveaways.

Q: I love reading your blog you have some great ideas.  I had a quick question.  Do you have a place were you buy pencils in bulk?  I want some pencils as small incentives for kids and I am having a hard time finding some cheap pencils in bulk.  I'm probably looking for 2-300; do you have any recommendations for me?

A: Thanks for reading my blog! I am glad you are finding great ideas here! Here are some recommendations I have for places to get good deals on bulk pencils. I have ordered from all of these websites before.  
Raymond Geddes Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You'll Go! Pencils, 72 per Display , Assorted (67816)
Amazon
Amazon has lots of different kinds of incentive pencils, including Dr. Seuess, specific holidays, birthday and more. I created a section on my Amazon Store for Incentives & Giveaways, where I included my favorites. I personally like the Raymond Geddes pencils the most. Raymond Geddes has a website with more designs, but the pencils are cheaper on Amazon and ship free with a $25 or more purchase. 

Smilemakers
Smilemakers has a variety of incentive pencils. Smilemakers has pencil sampler packs of 250 pencils. Some Smilemakers designs include teacher sampler pack, foil pencil sampler, and motivational pencil sampler. All of Smilemakers sample packs come in a reusable plastic tub. Sign up to receive emails from Smilemakers and get alerts to promotional discounts, such as free shipping.

Oriental Trading Company
Oriental Trading Company also has great deals on bulk pencils. Some Oriental Trading Company designs include motivational, mega pencil assortment, and patriotic. Oriental Trading Company has free shipping on purchases of $49 or more. Oriental Trading Company also sells customizable pencils.
