Tombow Pencil Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Kita-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Akihiro Ogawa) is pleased to announce the launch of its limited-edition Smoky Color series of products, with coloring inspired by trends in interior notions. The three items―mechanical pencils, erasers, and glue sticks―will be rolled out to stationery stores and stationery sections of major retailers across Japan starting June 10. Tombow’s beloved MONO and PiT products have been stylishly reimagined for the demographic of women and girls. The company plans to stimulate sales with a Buy-One-More (additional purchase) campaign.
Applicable products include the MONO graph mechanical pencil (¥350), the MONO eraser (¥100), and the PiT High-Power S glue stick (¥120) (all prices tax exclusive). All these popular items rank at or among the top sellers in their categories.
The five-color lineup includes Smoky White, Smoky Brown, Smoky Pink, Smoky Purple, and Smoky Mint (from left in the color chart).
The name will be “Limited-Edition Smoky Color Series,” and the suggested retail price and packaging will be the same as for standard colors (sold in single units).
The Smoky Colors have a fresh yet understated tone, as if covered with a veil of grey. These trendy, sophisticated shades have been attracting attention recently, and are widely used in fashion and interior notions. The lineup consists of five coordinated, harmonious colors.
