University Back-to-School Essentials

Even students wrapping up their summers to start back up at college have something to fall in love with at Cool Pencil Case. Sure, we're all about fun and quirky school supplies, but that doesn't mean your little brother or sister has to be the only one who will be anticipating a package at the doorstep. Cool Pencil Case has dorm essentials and school supplies that are essential to get through any lecture or discussion in the most stylish and functional way possible.

Pencil Roll Cases

Pencil rolls are a chic and modern way to keep pens, pencils, highlighters, and even tubes of lip gloss in one place. The pencil roll is available in multiple designs for young men and women and is considered to be a much more mature style for our customers. If you're constantly rushing to get from one hall to another, a pencil roll is a great way to lay out your pens on your desk to make a quick getaway once class is done. 

Who doesn't love a good all-in-one pen? Customization is key with the Hi-Tec Coleto pen. Express yourself with your favorite pen body color, available in black, light blue, pink, and clear. Based on your liking, you can pick and choose four different cartridges to fill in the 4 retractable slots. From mechanical pencil cartridges to 0.3 or 0.5 gel ink cartridges, the Hi-Tec Coleto pen is one that you probably won't want to lend to your neighbor.

Animal Paper Clips Collection

Sometimes college is a little too hectic thank we'd prefer it to be. Keep all your lecture notes and important papers for each class with this cool paper clip collection. Besides the funky colors these cases come in, the real gem is the animal-shaped paper clips that give your lined notebook paper a pop of fun.
Classic Light Alarm Clock

Chances are, you'll be pulling at least one all-nighter studying for an important midterm or final. Make sure you're snooze-free with an alarm clock that will really get you out of bed. While Cool Pencil Case has an amazing selection of alarm clocks that will really get your day started, the Classic Light Alarm Clock is a timeless piece that will match all of your dorm room decorations.


Make sure your entire week is planned out in advance with one of our planners. The best thing about our planners is that they do not come pre-dated. That means, you can be your own boss and start your year on and month, date, and year you feel like. Most planners come with templates for the year, month, and week. Who knows, after planning out your weeks in advance, maybe you'll find that you really do have time for everything.

NEW ARRIVALS: Back-to-School Edition

As much as we hate to admit this, Summer is coming to an end here in the States. The idea of back-to-school has already made its mark onto our calendars and shopping lists, but that doesn't mean some excitement doesn't deserve a place in there as well.

The back-to-school season is Cool Pencil Cases's most exciting (and busiest) time of the year. For the past couple of weeks, we've been stocking up on some fun school supplies that will turn heads on your first day of school. Here are a couple of our office faves that make us wish we were still gearing up for some classroom action in a few weeks.

1) Rilakkuma Deluxe Set ($16.85)

Talk about a money-saver for mom and dad. For just $16.85, students and Rilakkuma lovers alike can start the school year off with a set of pencils, a tin pencil case, mini notebook, and ruler. As an added bonus, the lovely people here at Cool Pencil Case add in a mix of either a badge, digital accessory stickers, mini notepads, or an eraser to complete the set.

With an awesome pencil sharpener like this, you'll never have to leave your seat during class to keep your pencils sharp. Available in four fruity colors, the mini piggy pencil sharpener is a school supply essential that deserves a spot in your pencil case.

3) 6-piece Metallic Rainbow Gel Pen Set ($11.65)

Bits and pieces of our adult selves melt when we see these gel pens. They're perfect for an extra boost of color when proofreading essays, writing letters, and highlighting important key facts in your lecture notes. From recent experience, we found it hard to stop yourself from writing with this 6-piece set. Every stroke is a mix of either funky colors and metallic, galaxy-inspired hues.

When we say ultimate, we mean ultimate. Each set includes three full-size sticky notepads, five sticky mini tab pads, two cutout notepads featuring Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma’s faces, and two half-sized sticky notepads. Send yourself to Rilakkuma notepad heaven with all four adorable designs.

5) Create-Your-Own-Clay Eraser ($7.50)

So you've seen our huge collection of Japanese erasers, and it seems that the possibilities are endless. Now, you can get your creative juices flowing just in time for the start of school. With this 5-color set, you can create your own erasers in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Most importantly, have mom and dad help you boil your creations for about 10 minutes, and let cool.
