About Pentel

Pentel's mission is to "create the tools that enable people everywhere to give form to their inner thoughts and feelings, and to cultivate the joy of expressing themselves."

Founded over 70 years ago, we still follow our founder's guiding principles to support self-expression, engage and build community, celebrate innovation and leave the world better for future generations.

For decades, Pentel has supplied the world with the highest quality writing and art products.  We are a leader in innovation with a commitment to excellence. Pentel invented rollerball technology...the smoothest way to express ideas.  Pentel pioneered graphite lead and our Super Hi-Polymer Lead is the market leader.  Our mechanical pencil inventions remain the hallmark of the industry.

We take pride in our craftsmanship.  Every Pentel mechanical pencil, lead, eraser, pen and correction fluid is manufactured by our own factories.  No other manufacturer can match this commitment to manufacturing excellence. In fact, Pentel is the only writing instrument company to ever receive the Deming Prize for recognition of the highest standard of quality.

We not only build products to last, but we want them to be enjoyed in a world that is thriving. To that end, Pentel proudly developed an internal program called Recycology, which consists of products made from at least 50% recycled materials. Plus, our dozen boxes, master cartons and blister cards are printed on recycled and recyclable materials.  

At Pentel, your satisfaction is guaranteed.  Every product is backed with an industry-leading, limited-lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship so that you can keep expressing yourself for years to come.
