Partial proceeds of Public Supply go to a high-need class or public school arts program in New York.

Brooklyn-based company Public Supply produces limited edition writing and art products and donates part of their proceeds to high-need classrooms and public school art programs in New York.

The company was founded by a team of designers and business-minded folks who believed that each student has the right to arts education. Art programs in public schools are usually underfunded due to budget constraints.

Public Supply sells pencils and notebooks that have a very minimalist design, with flexible covers and dotted paper. The notebooks come in a limited number of colors and are stamped on the front with the brand name and other details.

In an article on Co.Design, co-founder Adam London revealed that they wanted the notebooks to have a simple and clean look that gives designers a “blank slate” to work with. The company collaborated with Dutch artists Haas and Hahn for a limited edition notebook featuring their work.

The company partnered with non-profit organization Donors Choose to help with finding passionate teachers looking to help with their students’ overall education through arts.

A Public Supply notebook costs $12 while a three-pack costs $32. A six-pack of pencils cost $6. The company stamps a tracking number on every product they ship so that users can go to their website and match the tracking number to the classroom that they helped with their purchase of Public Supply products.
