Company Description

Public – Supply makes and sells writing supplies, including notebooks and pencils.

Founded on a mission to support creative work in U.S. public schools, Public – Supply donates 25% of profits from the sale of each of its products to help fill the funding gap for classes focused on the creative arts. The company partners with DonorsChoose.org to distribute the donated funds. Each product purchased contains a stamp with the classroom and order numbers that allow customers to see where and how their purchase supports a classroom in need.

With a passion for design and creativity, Public – Supply’s founders purposefully created a line of notebooks they hoped would act as a “blank slate” for creativity. The company has since partnered with artists and designers, including Haas and Hahn, Cody Hudson, Tim Coppens, and Edward Granger, to issue limited-edition notebooks featuring signature cover designs. To date, the company’s work has reached nearly 300 classrooms, and more than 54,500 students across the U.S.
