Manufacturers of specialist stationery equipment for the education sector for many years, STAEDTLER has an impressive heritage in the design and manufacture of quality writing and drawing instruments. Within its extensive range, STAEDTLER has a number of products developed in close association with the teaching profession and designed specifically to encourage good handwriting practice, such as the 309 Handwriting pen, the ergonomically designed triplus range and the ‘learner’ collection of triangular, jumbo-sized pencils, coloured pencils and pens. All products offer the STAEDTLER promise of premium quality, technical innovation and reliability.
The 309 Handwriting Pen
Designed to give children more control and therefore encourage better handwriting skills. With a hardwearing point, long write-out length and 0.6mm line width, this pen has a special moulded grip zone to give the child extra control. It also features a ventilated cap for safety and uses Dry Safe ink so that the cap may be left off for days without the pen drying out. Another practical feature is the clip on the cap which prevents the pen rolling on, or even off, the desk.
The 119 Noris triplus jumbo learner’s pencil
Designed for very young children and those with special needs. The triplus three-sided pencil has an ergonomic triangular design, offering optimum grip so that it sits comfortably in the hand and is easy to use. It also encourages correct grip for fatigue-free, effortless writing. The large diameter barrel, special lead formulation and extra thick super-bonded 4mm lead not only make the pencil easier to hold but also make the lead far more break resistant.
The range includes triplus blacklead pencils (119) with a soft 2B lead in the familiar yellow and black Noris design and triplus coloured pencils (128), with a matt finish for slip-free hold, in 12 brilliant colours.
121 Noris school pencil
Just the sight of the familiar yellow and black striped barrel of the Noris 121 blacklead pencil is enough to take many of us straight back to our own schooldays. This instantly recognisable pencil contains a special lead formulation which makes it unbelievably break-resistant, is available in five degrees and is manufactured using a special bonding process which means less sharpening and therefore less waste.
