About Us

Stubby Pencil Studio was launched in 2006 by Kate Rosenthal, after she realized there was a need for eco-friendly, do-it-yourself stationery products for young children. Her inspiration - twin two-year-old daughters and the thank you notes she created for them to send to family and friends. The cards were a big hit, treasured by all who received them.

To compliment the line of recycled stationery, Kate sourced biodegradable soy crayons and color pencils made from FSC certified wood. The response from parents seeking eco alternatives for their children was overwhelming. With a commitment to offering quality and earth friendly goods, at an affordable price, Stubby Pencil Studio has grown to become a resource for green shoppers. Browse today and find an expanding collection of creative products that are unique, non-toxic, recycled, fair trade, educational, sustainable or environmentally responsible.
Stubby Pencil Studio strives to raise awareness that these items are available, good for the Earth, and fun for kids. If you'd like to help spread the word, or have a product suggestion, email the studio.
