History

 

Cray-Ray-Sa Co incorporated in September of 1935 in Easton, PA.  Over the years, there have been several other crayon companies operating in Easton, PA where Crayola has their headquarters.  It seems unusual that such a small town would be home to more than one crayon company, but similar businesses tend to cluster like that.  They were around when Penn Art Crayon Co. also operated in Easton.  Both companies were short lived though.  Their main product and one for which they had a patent was their “white blackboard”.  They also produced crayons under their company name.  They were clearly ahead of their time as there is no hint of them beyond their 1935/36 start.  Whiteboards would become popular decades later
