GEDDES has been in business since 1924 and while we started out selling basic yellow pencils and ballpoint pens, now we’re known for our fun, colorful school supplies, kid-friendly novelty items, party supplies, and school kits.
We offer a wide selection of licensed products featuring Dr. Seuss, Pete the Cat, Peanuts, DC Comics, and Dog Man, many of which are exclusive to GEDDES. Looking for unicorn school supplies? We’ve got ‘em! Items featuring kids’ favorite NFL teams? We have those too.

School Supplies – School supplies are our specialty! We carry everything you need to start your own school store—or simply keep a supply of GEDDES items on hand to reward students for a job well done. Our writing supplies include pens, pencils, mechanical pencils, highlighters, and markers. Kids love personalizing their pencils with our fun pencil accessories. We sell a wide range of classroom supplies, including bookmarks, paper products, locker accessories, art supplies, crayons, craft items, backpacks, and school tools like scissors and clipboards. And don’t forget everyone’s favorite—scented school supplies that smell good enough to eat (but please don’t eat them!).
Novelties – Our selection of novelties are a great classroom incentive, fun fair prize, reading program reward, or addition to birthday goodie bags. Kids these days are all about our goo, putty, and slime toys for goopy fun, but we also offer squishy toys, fidgets and sensory toys to keep hands busy too. Older kids love our tech gadgets, wearables, and keychains. If you’re planning a party, stock up on our novelty toys and games or just buy pre-filled party bags and skip the assembly.
School Kits – With our school kits, you’ll get everything needed to start the school year off right. We’ve analyzed school supply lists across the country and put together elementary school kits and middle school kits with the most frequently-requested items, including pens, pencils, markers, folders, and rulers. If your school has different needs, we can build custom school kits just for you. Selling these kits at your school store is a great service for busy parents who don’t have time for school supply shopping and they’re also a great fundraising opportunity for your school.
Read our blog for more ideas to help students get excited about learning or find out more about how to start a school store. If a store isn’t the right fit for you, we have other fundraising ideas for schools that can help you raise money for playground equipment, tablets and computers, school trips, and more.
