There are few items that are still under $2 and made right here in America, but Crayola’s regular-sized crayons, a quintessential back-to-school supply, is one of those.
From the 8-count all the way up to the 120-count box, the company’s regular-sized crayons, including reds, whites, blues and every color in between are all made in Easton, Pennsylvania. Crayola makes their crayons using the finest pigments for intense color, and is a special blend of that colored pigment, along with paraffin wax for smoothness and clay for strength. A dedicated workforce of over 1,200 help to create these high-quality crayons that will land in the backpacks of students and in classrooms across the nation. So why not send your kids off to school this year with the best tools to help them perform their best and bring their original ideas to life?
At the manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania, Crayola makes 650 crayons per minute and up to 13.5 million crayons a day! More than 400 different crayon colors are made, including favorites such as burnt sienna, carnation pink and midnight blue. On average, the company makes 3 billion crayons a year, enough to circle the world six times!
In addition to being made in America, Crayola feels it is their responsibility to shrink their carbon footprint for the kids who know and love the products and who will be the next leaders of this country. A solar farm located in Forks Township, PA provides enough power to make 1 billion of the 3 billion crayons that Crayola produces each year and 500 million markers per year.
Did you ever wonder who actually makes those quality crayons? Come inside the factory to meet our dedicated workforce and see how the great American crayon is made!
