Pencils

A variety of types

Pencils are one of the most basic foundations of any stationery kit and are typically used to scribe rough or non-permanent writings or drawings. Whether traditional or mechanical, the nibs are typically made from a grey-black pencil lead but here at WHSmith, we offer a variety of colours and styles with our range of pencils.

As pencils are used for a range of purposes - from writing text to sketching - they are available in all sorts of different compositions. We offer our standard HB, which is a mid-range composition. Then harder pencils - which can be used for tasks such as graphic drawing - are labelled H, preceded by a number, depending on the hardness. Softer pencils are B graded, also preceded by a number depending on the softness.

Colours and sets

We stock a range of pencils - both individual and sets - to suit all your writing and drawing needs. As well as regular lead pencils, we also provide various pencils for art, such as colouring pencils, watercolour pencils and oil-based pencils.

Pencils are a part of everyday life, and having one handy at all times is useful. That's why we offer several pencil sets, kits and multi-packs, to ensure that you always have the right pencil available when you need one. We also have a range of novelty pencils available via our online store, making a fun addition to any back-to-school pencil case.

So have a browse of our online store today to find the pencil that is right for you, or pop into your local WHSmith to see them in person.
