Rainbow Pencils function like regular wooden pencils, and are the same size and weight, but they're not made from wood, they're made from lots of layers of recycled waste paper. This means the shavings / sharpenings look like rainbows.
Each pencil has a 6-layer rainbow core and comes finished in either black or white. There's 5 in a pack and the simple design makes a great gift.
Kickstarter is a crowd-funding resource that provides a platform for creative projects to raise funds.
Projects (e.g Rainbow Pencils) are presented by 'creators', together with a set funding goal and deadline. Then, if people (you!) like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. Project creators offer rewards to thank backers for their support, (e.g. a product from the first production run). The bigger the pledge, the cooler the reward!
"Backing a project is more than just giving someone money, it’s supporting their dream to create something that they want to see exist in the world."
