Crayola Crayons Brighten Classrooms Worldwide


When it comes to crayons, the Crayola name immediately pops into the mind. School supply lists feature requests for generic folders, notebooks and glue. But when it comes to crayons, teachers know that Crayola is the way to go.

What makes Crayola such a popular choice in schools?

Tradition – The first eight-pack of Crayola wax crayons was produced in 1903, to meet the demand for a safe, quality crayon. Now, Crayola produces 3 billion crayons each year, an average of 12 million crayons daily! While packaging and colors have changed over the years, the quality has remained the same, making Crayola – the brand we loved as children – the crayon choice for the next generation.

Safety – Crayola crayons are nontoxic and, for the most part, made in the USA. Crayola has long been committed to safety and is a founding member of the Crayon, Watercolor and Craft Institute, which promotes product safety in art materials. The organization is now known as the Art & Creative Materials Institute and its seal can be found on Crayola products.

Quality & Durability – Generic crayons may come at a lower price, but you’ll often have to replenish your supply much sooner than with Crayola crayons. Crayola crayons are made of durable, yet smooth, wax that won’t crumble as you color. The crayons are also double-wrapped to prevent snapping in the middle.

Affordability – The first eight-pack of Crayola crayons sold for a nickel in 1903. Over 100 years later and the price hasn’t changed much. Crayola Classpacks are even more affordable, providing you with an entire school year of colorful crayons at an excellent price.
