- Orders submitted with punctuation that is not available for the selected font will be rejected with payment in full refunded. New error free orders must be submitted.
- The Heart Symbol is not available with any of the fonts listed on this page. See larger print fonts.
- Dixon pencils should not have any punctuation
- Dates 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
- Use lowercase letters as sparingly as possible because they can be very small and difficult to read. We have removed the availability of some fonts' lowercase letters
- If you are selecting Dixon pencils and have text with lowercase letters than dip and rise, for example y and f which dip and rise, then it would be wise to select a font such as Kelsey or Freehand
- Fonts with thin lines (versus bold or medium fonts) need very strong contrast between the pencil and print color - which usually is white print. Bold & Medium fonts do not have this visibility issue
- Orders with multiple fonts will take an extra day or two to process.
- Select STRONG COLOR CONTRAST between pencils & print. Eg. red pencils with white print, yellow pencils with black print, red pencils with royal blue print, turquoise pencils with dark purple print
- Examples of weak color contrast: lavender pencils with light pink print, purple pencils with silver print, gold pencils with gold print, royal blue pencils with black print
- DELICATE FONTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR MULTIPLE TEXT LINE ORDERS.
Extra Customization Requests
If your text does not fit in the order form's text box then BEFORE placing an order, email a complete description of the project to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include all pertinent information so that we can make an informed decision on whether or not we are ready, willing or able to do the special print work. We need to know your exact expectations in order to meet them. An EXTRA fee per dozen will apply to the extra customization order and the box Extra Customization must be checked when the order is placed after we reach mutual agreement on the order. We need to know the proposed font, which pencil, quantity, whatever makes the customization extra and how we will know we've got it right. Start with a ONE dozen order. Keep in mind that there is a limit to the length that a text line can be. Shorter text lines are better on pencils, and we encourage the use of multiple text lines rather than one unusually long text line.
Diacritics - letters with punctuation above the letter are only available with the Larger Print - Helvetica - with diacritics. No font on this order page can print diacritics.
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.
* If a font is not listed in the drop down menu or if the image shows lowercase letters but the drop down menu says UPPERCASE LETTERS ONLY, then either the lowercase letters or the entire font has been retired and is no longer available.
DIXON pencils can only have one line of text with no punctuation
Multiple Text Line Orders - Submit UPPERCASE LETTERS ONLY, ideally in the McKellar font for best results.
