It’s no movie, there’s no Mekhi Phifer… but The Six Mile Pencil is pure gangsta! Each pencil contains enough graphite to draw size miles. How do you know how far you’ve drawn? A mile ruler is printed on it’s body!

 

There’s still time to back The Six Mile Pencil. Head over to the Kickstarter page and help get this project funded!

COLOR MAKE YOU WANNA GO POP POP


Can’t get enough of those notebooks? Neither could we. 

The Croatia Booster Pack includes an A5 memo book in the same rad pattern (the kit’s book is an A6, so you can stock up on different sizes), plus two color-poppin’ pencils to pair with it. Can you blame us for not leaving these beauties behind??

SUPER SNAIL MAIL


Forget email, break out the snail mail! Writing instruments and envelopes – a journey accessed only by sendin’ off a handwritten letter. Two pencils, one memo book, and a phat stack of gorgeous envelopes… It’s STMT X CROATIA! 

SHOP STMT X CROATIA


The Croatia sourcing trip was crazy awesome – but not in any way we expected. Two nights ended up being five. Lost relatives were found. An entire family tree came to life before our very eyes – and all because of a piece of snail mail.

Our October Kit is heavy on writing instruments and envelopes because every day, we’re reminded of how important snail mail has always been – how important it still is. Time’s may change, but nothin’ can take the place of lo-fi goods.

Check out the kit now (if we had to pick a favorite item? Those crazy printed notebooks), and read the Low Down to learn how one piece of snail mail reconnected an entire family.

Lookie lookie! Added a new pencil to our Mirado collection – a green Papermate Mirado pencil! Picked up a stash during this year’s sourcing trip to Mexico. The middle version was scored during last year’s trip to Mexico. And we purchased the first pencil up in Canada. Why? The collector in me couldn’t pass up the old-school English / French box!We love sharing our rad stash of pencils – RAHstrs who posted a photo of their USA goods scored a green and goldenrod Mirado pencil with their Mexico Kit!

TWO NO. 2 PENCILS, TWO BALLPOINT PENS, TWO RULED NOTEBOOKS…


We know those checklists that arrive at the end of summer. The only thing that eases the end-of-summer blues? New school supplies – you’re gonna wanna ditch the blues and rock out to some J-Pop.
 

 

No. 2 pencils? You KNOW we got those covered. Ruled notebooks? Toughest decision will be which rad cover to pick. And of course, let’s not forget the ballpoint pens, the paperclips, the sweet coloring supplies…. wait, what was so bad about heading back to school again??

RAHstrs have been asking us for a pencil pouch for FOREVER. When we spied some in a papelería, we knew we HAD to make ‘em happen for this kit. Hunted high and low, and finally we found the right match – Moises and Elizabeth. Instantly fell in love with them – you know when you meet someone and you just know that they’re good people? That’s Moises and Elizabeth. They handcrafted these custom pencil pouches, and we couldn’t be more stoked to share ‘em with all y’all.

Get your hands on one of these rad pouches (seriously, you DON’T want to miss out), and read the Low Down to hear all about the brimmin’-full-of-love sourcing trip.

"can’t stop the rad and hungry pencil on the LSAT. HUSTLING AT WORK" ~ Ellen Cassidy RAHstrs ask why we don’t list everything we include in an STMT Kit. The RAD AND HUNGRY pencils in the USA Kit, the pack of airmail envelopes in last year's Mexico Kit, the candy and tea in the Argentina Kit…Why? Because we love the surprise. The internet is handy and all – hunt down that obscure vinyl or track down your long lost friend – but sometimes not being able to find every little bit online is a good thing. ‘Cause really – when was the last time a surprise pencil brought you that much joy?

HEY, MR. POSTMAN!


The USA Booster Pack? It’s just beggin’ you to start writing some letters.

These vintage stamps (from 1962!) can NOT be missed. Celebratin’ the 50th anniversary of Arizona’s addition as the 48th US state, these beautifully textured bad boys were specially printed on a Giori press. Stick ‘em on one of the retro Air Mail envelopes (included in the Booster Pack), write up a letter using the American Naturals pencil (also included!) and get ready to impress the postman.

Crazy cool vessels made of pencils from Finnish designer Tuomas Markunpoika. Always blown away when someone can take a pencil, a daily diet good, and transform it into something far from basic.
