Additional Insights

  • Four types of pencils are sold:  Hexagonal, Round, Golf and Coloring pencils

Round pencils have only one text line and only use ARIAL - UPPERCASE LETTERING

Hexagonal pencils can have up to three text lines, and you can select from about 65 fonts.  These are all #2 regular lead except for the sole product designated #2 Soft Lead pencils.

Golf pencils can have up to 3 very short text lines, and you can select from about 65 fonts. 

Coloring pencils have one text line in McKellar font and white print, though silver print is used on the white and very pale yellow coloring pencils for contrast.


Note | No logos, art work, emoticons, emojis, punctuation combinations, proofs or previews on orders by the dozen. 


Tip |If you are ordering a dozen assorted colors, then order copper ferruled or Dixon pencils because only these pencils offer consistent ferrule and eraser colors.


Submission Errors 

Submission errors greatly increase the odds of our making errors. We handle this by rejecting those orders and refunding the payment in full.  Refunds can take 3-5 business days to show up in electronic accounts.  It is the customer's responsibility to check their Spam box, and Paypal or credit card accounts for notification emails.  At any time, the Customer can submit a NEW order that is error free.


Really Bad Color Combinations

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder who is a paying customer, not us.  Bottom line, we have to be able to see the text to print it.  If we can barely see it but enough to print, then we will, even if the results are awful.  To avoid bad results, use strong contrast - dark print on light colored pencils or light print on dark colored pencils.  If your pencil color is in the middle of the color spectrum, then WHITE PRINT works best, not silver, gold or black. Use the largest, boldest letters possible for your order if choosing weak contrast.
