Smencil Ordering Guide

How to order smencils

Ensuring that you order the right amount of smencils for your group to sell is important. This is where our smencil ordering guide comes in. You already know the size of your group. Now you just need to decide how much each student needs to sell.

In addition to determining the correct size of your order, you can also calculate how much you’ll make. You may qualify for a profit discount that’s dependent on the size of your order.

Since there are 10 inner buckets of 50 smencils in a case, you can probably ask each student to sell 1 to 2 buckets. Before you determine how many cases you’re going to need for your group, here’s an example of a sponsor who has 55 students and wants each student to sell 1 bucket:

55 students x 1 bucket / student = 55 buckets
55 buckets ÷ 10 buckets / case = 5.5 (Round up to 6 cases)

If our sample group sells 6 cases, they’ll make $1,230.00 after keeping 41% profit (See our smencils pricing & profit table):

6 cases x 10 buckets / case = 60 buckets
60 buckets x 50 smencils / bucket = 3,000 smencils
3,000 smencils x $1.00 / smencil = $3,000.00 gross sales
$3,000.00 x 41% profit = $1,230.00 profit
