When I bought No. 2 pencils for my boys recently, the teachers wanted them to arrive sharpened. We spent a ton of time sharpening all 96 pencils we bought! How I wish we had bought the Ticonderoga pencils because they come already sharpened! What a time-saver that would have been for us.
Honestly, in the past, I never really considered any differences between school supplies, but now that I’ve had a chance to compare several products, I can see that the quality of the Ticonderoga and Prang products is definitely superior to many other leading brands. I encourage you to compare them for yourself! And be sure to for a coupon for Prang watercolors!
