Smencil Fundraiser Programs
Smencil fundraisers are one of the most unique fundraising options on the market currently. They are quite literally what they sound like - pencils that smell. Each one is a unique and popping scent, ranging from grape soda to bubble gum, grape jelly to black cherry… the list goes on! They’ve also recently branched out to include other options like glitter gel grip smens, pens that—you guessed it –smell.
History of Smencil Products
Smencils got their start in Vancouver when the company brainstormed to produce an eco-friendly and innovate alternative to the average pencil. The result was smencils: scented pencils made from sheets of recycled and rolled newspaper.
Not only are they eco-friendly, but they’re also lead free, and they’re number 2 pencils, which can be verified as crucial by anyone still in grade school, making them ideal school fundraiser items. Since the year 2001, the company has partnered with schools and parents to host smencils fundraiser campaigns to help generate the money to supply students with school essentials.
Smencil Fundraiser Ideas
Smencils fundraisers are one of the newest members on the list of school fundraising ideas, but they have quickly become one of the more exciting options for kids due to the array of creative ways to interact with them. Smencils are a great idea for kids looking to fill coloring books with scents that might apply to the things they’re filling in, like apples or candy.
They also are a creative way of personalizing cards for someone. One idea to accompany your school fundraising program is to organize an event where parents and kids use their smencils to create and send cards to patients in hospitals who could use the cheering up.
A fun activity for parents to do with their kids is to create a coloring book! Try creating the pages with the tri-color smens and then fill them in with various smencils. If you’re suggesting this while you fundraise, consider supplying everyone who makes a purchase with a sheet of paper or a blank card to get started. Complimentary ideas like these are great ways to maximize on the utility of your smencil fundraiser.
Smencils Fundraising Options
One case of smencils fundraising products holds 500 individual units, which means $225 in school fundraising profits. Keep in mind, the average kid will likely want to buy several because of the vast assortment of designs and scents. If it’s the holidays, they also come in a peppermint scent! Smencils are perfect for holiday cards paired with mint candies or chocolates.
You might also choose smens. They come in tri-color, glitter and neon gel. Our favorite scent is hot cocoa, but kids are likely to prefer blueberry. Try suggesting scent combos to up-sell! Smens are more easily marketed towards adults than the smencils, as they can be used for things like grocery lists, lunchbox notes to kids, or even at work if you need a little excitement at the office. Sold at the suggested selling price of $1, the smens will profit you the same as smencils.
Each smencil and smen comes individually packaged in a vented tube to give you a preview of the smell, making them the perfect stocking stuffer or gift bag goodie.
