Here is a nice tutorial on how to make Firefox pencils. He modified the Firefox logo to a single color vector image using a program called Inkscape (open source vector graphics editor) and since most branding companies request logo artwork to be submitted as encapsulated postscript (EPS) or similar final output format, he exported the end result to EPS format.

Then he ordered the pencils from Inkhead (who sell promotional products and custom corporate gifts). They charge the unit price of $50 for a box of 250 pencils or $75 for two boxes. The custom art option adds a $20 art charge. By default they will size the art file to cover as much of the imprint area as possible and it will be centered toward the eraser end of the pencil.

They email a design proof (in PDF format) for your approval before it goes for print. And then within a few days, you get delivery and can show off your very own Firefox pencils in office.
