From its earliest beginnings, Crayola has been a color company. We came into being when cousins Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith took over Edwin's father's pigment business in 1885. More than 120 years later, color - along with creativity, learning and most of all fun - is the benchmark of our company.
Crayola has called Easton, Pennsylvania its home since the early 1900s.
Today, the company's world headquarters and major manufacturing facilities are located there.
In 1984, Crayola became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hallmark Cards and has since played the lead role in Hallmark's personal development strategies.
Providing you with safe, high-quality, and age appropriate products is our top priority at Crayola. Since our brand's beginning in 1903, we've ensured that our products are nontoxic and safe. We appreciate the trust that parents, teachers and children have in Crayola.
