Here is a coupon idea I had never heard of before.....

This morning I get a phone call from one of my pizzeria clients…They were asking if I could print a coupon (good for a slice) on a pencil…Apparently they are going to give them to teachers to give to students as rewards…The coupon will go on the end of the pencil and get “sharpened” off when redeemed…These will be used in the fall and can be redeemed on “pizza day” at the school…I will have to remember to update TT readers later on…

Sooo… Can you??

That’s awesome, I gotta burn that one in my memory. Umm… and you can remind us too lol Thanks man for sharing

Ehhh…That is a great idea.
I’ll burn that one on my memory chip!

Please post a photo of the finished product too. I’m having trouble visualizing how the coupon text/image will be printed so that half the pencil doesn’t have to be ground away when redeeming it.

“Here’s your slice and… gggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr… here’s your ‘nub’ back.”

Brad;
You can always recycle those pencil nubs through your local miniature golf course. LOL
I would think you could have the pencils imprinted with the verbage and a colored band printed around the “to be sharpened” end of the pencil, then all you would need to do is to sharpen the pencil to invalidate the coupon/pencil. Does that make sense?

A pencil is about 7 1/2" long…The typical screen print imprint in 4 1/2" long…Usually closer to the eraser end than the other end…In this case we are going to do a “full wrap” full colour imprint so the whole pencil is printed…The “coupon” will go on the bottom and be a 7/8" x 7/8" box with the words “free slice”…The box will be about 1/8" from the tip…
