History

 

Charles Leonard, Inc. was founded in 1946 as a distributor of pencil sharpeners and stationery specialties.  It has always been a multi-generation family business.  In the 1950’s they opened their own factories, producing Prestong® prong paper fasteners, aluminum binding posts and loose leaf metals for ring binders. They began importing complementary products in the 1960’s, when Japan was still the low cost producer of binder clips in the Far East, and China was not yet open to the outside world.  After purchasing Omni Office Products in 1987, they expanded their sources of supply throughout Southeast Asia and beyond. In the 2000s they started the Creative Arts® line, aimed at helping children enjoy the creative process through the use of high quality, affordable Arts & Crafts products.  In this line were crayons.  These crayons are sourced out of China to their design specifications.
