Staonal General Marking Crayon: What's Inside the Box

Guess what is really cool about the Staonal General Marking Crayons?  They have the same name as the original original Crayola crayons from 1902.  I only have one color so far, but I want to get them all.  Cousins Edward Binney and C. Harold Smith, ie the namesakes of Binney & Smith, developed the Staonal crayon in 1902.  Edwin went on later to develop Crayola crayons in 1903. It is so cool it is still around today, at least for now. (Check out the crayon collecting website for a more detailed history.)

I have the black colors from 2003 and 2013.  I would love to find out when the other boxes were first introduced.  Warning that these markers are not washable.  They are made for permanent marks, for this reason I keep them up high.

  1. Luckily there are only two colors, Red & Black. Read the back of the box. We constantly use these at construction sites, and new home builds.
