Share Article

Scissors brand joins with TeacherLists.com to support America’s teachers and families for Back-to-School.

TeacherLists.com – the site where teachers can easily post and share their back-to-school supply lists and teacher wish lists – is pleased to announce the addition of Westcott Scissors as another proud sponsor of the growing effort to make back-to-school work better for parents and families.

Westcott is now the exclusive scissors sponsor of TeacherLists.com and will be working with TeacherLists.com to make the exciting service known to even more teachers and families in 2013 and beyond.

School supply lists have been a staple of the back-to-school experience for millions of families for decades. And Westcott scissors have been on those lists as a brand teachers trust and recommend for just as long. Now – through the new TeacherLists.com platform – those lists are easier for teachers to post and share and easier for parents to find. It’s a perfect marriage.

“We couldn’t be more excited about adding Westcott to our TeacherLists.com family,” says TeacherLists.com founder, Tim Sullivan. “Westcott fits perfectly with our goal of making back-to-school simpler for everyone. Westcott scissors are already synonymous with back-to-school, and TeacherLists.com is becoming so.”

The TeacherLists.com concept is simple: teachers and schools can use the service to easily post their school supply list and teacher wish lists online. And parents – with just a click or two – can find exactly the lists they need from any computer, tablet or smart phone. Parents can print the lists or view them easily on a mobile device right in the store.

“This partnership leverages both of our strengths, combining Westcott’s position as The World’s Favorite Scissors™, and as a highly trusted brand in school supplies, with the TeacherLists.com technological sharing platform. We are adding a level of convenience in making our products available to educators, parents and students during the back-to-school season. Together, we're making it easier to provide classrooms with durable and reliable products backed by well-known, trusted brands,” Sarah Albano, Director of Marketing, Westcott Brand, Acme United Corporation.

Launched in 2012, TeacherLists.com already boasts – by far – the largest database available of current school supply lists and teacher wish lists, with lists from more than 150,000 classrooms and more than 10,000 schools (from all 50 states) live on the site. Teachers and schools that get active with the site – by posting their lists and sharing those lists with parents using the site’s sharing tools – earn free bonus supplies from TeacherLists.com’s growing sponsor list.

Elmer’s glue, Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes, Dixie® and Kleenex® Brand tissues are additional sponsors of the growing back-to-school solution.
