We make pencils, notebooks and tools for creative-minded people, and others looking to unplug once in a while. Whether in the form of vinyl records and print books, or film cameras and worn-down pencils, we think there’s something in the tactile feel of an analog tool that is in our DNA. We try to tap into that feeling in our everyday lives by making things with our hands, and by valuing the creative process as much as the result.
We believe in the power of arts and music, as both a creative outlet and as an educational tool. That’s why a portion of every Blackwing sale benefits music and arts education through the Blackwing Foundation, and why we use projects like Blackwing Music to shine a spotlight on artists who deserve attention.
