Product Description

Please read the entire order page - keep scrolling down

 

Our fabulous #2 Soft Lead Pencils are a joy to use as they glide across paper and because the lead is darker, they are particularly great for doing crossword puzzles and other brain teazers. They are particularly pretty with white bodies, gold ferrules and white erasers.  Your print color and text will jump out.

 Advice

  • Dates look best with . not / or -   example: May 23, 2015 or 5.23.2015 work well, but 5-23-2015 or 05-23-2015 or 5/23/2015 or 05/23/2015 don't look good on pencils
  • White pencils with black print look awful, especially with a plain font such as Arial or Helvetica

 

Notes

Multiple Text Line Orders - Submit UPPERCASE LETTERS ONLY ideally in the McKellar font for best results.

Diacritics - letters with punctuation above the letter are only available with the Larger Helvetica - with diacritics. To use this font, all text lines must have text with diacritics.  

Dates Appear best on a pencil either with periods or spelled out. For example:  3.6.2015 or March 6, 2015
Logos, Emoticons & Emojis  are not printable on small orders.  :) prints distorted and is not available.

Recommended Print Colors  gold, copper and silver print look really nice on white pencils. black print on white pencils looks awful.
