The Process: Take a Colorful Video Tour of the Crayola Factory

Pop quiz: how many crayons do you think the Crayola factory produces each day? I’d have said something like: 500,000. 

Turns out, I was way, way wrong. The answer?             12,000,000. That’s twelve million little colorful wax sticks. A day. 

Wired magazine recently visited the factory in Easton, Pennsylvania, and captured some excellent footage of the process.
