Handcrafted with Pride in our Factory in Jersey City, New Jersey USA
General Pencil Company’s art and craft pencils come to you from our factory in Jersey City, New Jersey. We believe in quality, tradition, value, and the fun of creating. We take pride in handcrafting quality pencils and artist materials using traditional methods passed down for six generations. Our history dates back to 1860 when Edward Weissenborn began the first pencil factory in the USA. In 1889, Edward and his son, Oscar A., began what is now General Pencil Company. Still family owned and operated, our goal is to create consistent, quality products in a sustainable manner for artists of all levels. We thank you for choosing our fine art and craft products for your creative talents and enjoyment.
The American Pencil Company quickly earned a reputation for producing quality pencils. They received hundreds of letters praising their products, including letters from four members of President Lincoln’s cabinet. In 1866, letters of commendation were received from the Governor of New York and the Mayor of New York City.
In a time when many manufacturers are trying to make things cheaper, we are working to make our products better while keeping our prices low. Our bottom line has always been to provide quality art supplies that artists can depend on for consistency and performance to create their finished artwork.
