WASTE OF GOOD PENCIL
About half of the produced pencils is tossed aside - good pencils of wood and grafit.
EXTENDING PRODUCT LIFE
Easy extension and no new production - all done by hand in the woodshop in the back yard.
Joining a grafit pencil with a colored, adds an extra purpose to the product.
Rescued pencils joined for a second life
AT THE MOMENT, I ONLY TAKE ORDERS ON REQUEST
I'm a pencil nerd - I just take joy in a good pencil.
I always have a notebook at hand, and I needed a pencil that I could use as a normal sketch or note pencil and as a highlighter, of the things I need to get done or take extra notis of, when revisiting the sketch.
I had a great one with a neon yellow highlighter, but I found it hard to see the bright yellow, so I rummaged through the drawers and found A LOT of stumps of colored pencils that would fit perfect for my needs... the rest is history ;-)
As almost always, products are born out of a need.
Hope you'll enjoy Stumpps as much as I do.
Best, Lone Ørum
