The advantages of an electric pencil sharpener and/or electric pencil sharpeners at home and at work:
- Many people including architects, drafters, writers and others still prefer to use a pencil over a pen. This is primarily because pencils make it easier to erase mistakes. When you work in a medium or large sized office, this can mean having to sharpen several pencils on a regular basis. Investing in a quality, durable and affordable electric pencil sharpener will make this task quicker and easier.
- Pencil lead can wear quickly. Because of this, even if you work in an office with just a few people, it's good to have an electric pencil sharpener on hand.
- The thickness of the pencil lead can affect the way a document looks. If you write something with a dull lead, the lines will be thicker than if you write it with a sharpened pencil. For consistency, keep the lead sharpened often—and make it easier with an electric sharpener.
- Besides regular pencils, many offices have the need to use colored pencils for graphs, sketches, drawings and other projects. Keep in mind, these all have to be sharpened just like a regular pencil does and the job is much easier with an electric sharpener.
For added style and functionality, don't forget to pick up a pencil cup and colorful pencils to keep the sharpened pencils you need organized and close at hand.
