Default Bulk colored pencils

A coworker of mine is making one of those huge colored pencil vases for a charity auction, but is struggling to find a good price for pencils. She needs 400 of each red, yellow, and green. If any of you guys know where to find a better price than $0.25 per pencil, PM me with a link. Thanks

-Joe

The issue I see is that you only want three colors. You can buy cheap sets but once you throw away all the non red, yellow, and green ones they may end up costing more than 25 cents per pencil.

Here is a source but min order maybe 5,000 per color.

You could probably contact local schools--maybe they buy in bulk.

I am a teacher. We have to buy the pencils that we use with our own money. There are "classroom packs" on Amazon but no secret bulk site that I know of. Would love to find some cheap colored pencils for projects

I searched long for hexagonal ones since I had a plan to sort of do a tube in glue up.
