As the school year draws closer, you’re busy taking care of all the tasks that will make this year your best one yet — creative decorations, thoughtful seating arrangements, new learning centers, and flexible lesson plans. 

Sure to be a part of your planning is the oft-dreaded “H” word. While many think homework is unnecessary, for one design student, a simple homework assignment over 15 years ago turned into an inspiring and imaginative bags-and-cases company. 

This back-to-school season, meet ZIPIT® pencil cases – your new favorite accessories.


With over 20 millions of pencil cases in the hands of many happy customers in more than 60 countries we are proud to have ZIPIT one of our new ClassTag sponsors.

The Assignment

The assignment was simple:  Create a product that can be mass-produced, yet is simple and cleverly designed.

With a burst of creative energy, long days (and nights) were spent experimenting with various raw materials, and finally, the breakthrough came. The watershed moment? A few small changes to the sewing of a zipper. It was the moment that led to the product that would start it all — a pencil case made entirely of one long zipper.

Years later, this ingenious design became officially known as the ZIPIT® Zipper pencil case. The rest, as they say, ‘is history.’

The Products that Foster Smiles

Founded on originality and creativity, ZIPIT’s unique pencil cases and pouches not only keep you and your classroom organized, but they also bring smiles with their zany designs, durable materials, and affordable price point.

Innovative Designs

ZIPIT’s products are smart, colorful, and imaginative. The quirky designs cater to your unique style whether it’s rugged camo, out-of-this-world aliens, furry unicorns, or googly-eyed monsters.

Use the pouches and cases to store pens and pencils or as a portable cosmetic bag for the daily commute. With various shapes, designs, and sizes, you’ll find a case or pouch to meet your small-item storage needs.
