Item specifics

Seller Notes: Unused, most are new open stock bought in bulk, rest source is unknown
Brand:

Spectracolor

Country of Manufacture:

United States

All pencils are artist grade.

Many artists consider Spectracolor pencils to be better than the Prismacolors.  The black ones are Design Spectracolors made about 10 years ago by the same company that makes Prismacolors after it bought out the Venus labels.  The ones with colored labels and not sharpened have the Faber Castell label are older, about 20 years old. They are in very good to fine condition in line with their age, all unused. Many of the pencils come pre-sharpened in the factory.   

NOTE: The photo shows most of the pencil colors but not all of them.

COLORS areolive green, real green, apple green, dark green, 2 lemon yellow, 2 non photo blue, deep violet, violet, 2 indigo blue, raw umber, burnt umber, dark brown, orange, carmine red, vermillion (no cap), 2 white, warm grey dark, gold, silver.

The pencils are all:

>  artist quality

> The wide lead size is about twice the diameter of a regular pencil, so it lasts longer. 

> The soft finish provides ease of use in a variety of media. Use a very high quality sharpener - see more details below.

>  This is a custom set. The pencils are new and unused, open stock or bulk from a variety of sources and never came in a retail box or package.


Shipping by air mail except locally and takes about 7 to 9 days since Toronto has a major international airport, longer for very distant locations such as Australia. Shipped in a padded envelope with no tracking number which is not available by Canada Post for letter mail. Multiple orders may be shipped by light packet air in a box or large envelope or sometimes in more than one shipment. We do not ship to APO's or student dorms. Other exclusions applied are based on distance and language considerations.

Shipping cost is based on estimated cost of postage and envelope and 13% HST (a combined sales and VAT tax) on both these items.

Care of your soft thick pencils:  
1/  Pencils Sharpener:  Most artists and art stores that I have spoken to recommend using an electric pencil sharpener rather than the hand held ones. I find using a $25 electric sharpener from Staples works fine. 


Other

Direct Resolution:  The buyer agrees to contact me first to discuss, and if need be negotiate a remedy, for an issue of dissatisfaction, and then wait 3 days to allow time for us to discuss the matter, before opening a dispute case with Ebay.  Ebay clearly encourages such direct discussion and resolution a between buyer and seller before it gets involved. 
Materiality:  If the amount of the alleged loss to a buyer is less than $3, the buyer agrees not to file a dispute with Ebay, and secondly, not to leave negative comments in feedback or non-positive feedback. I believe that my prices are generally low enough that the buyer has already benefited from them, and this rule save time for everyone including Ebay. 
Refunds:  Once a buyer receives a full rebate, they will not leave any feedback; since in essence the sale has been voided and they have been made whole. Similarly, once a buyer agrees to a partial refund and receives that refund within 3 days (assuming they are set up to receive payments), they will not leave any feedback. 
Open Stock versus New Pencils:  Open stock pencils are sold one pencil at a time, and if they come in a box, it is open and not sealed; so the unit here is a single pencil, and thus the pencil is new even if there is no box sold with it.  Similarly, bulk pencils are sold in large wholesale boxes, sometimes as many as 1944 pencils, and intended to be sold in large numbers, such as in lots of 72, so they too are new even though not sold with a small box. Pencils are round and can roll around and cause very small scratches. I have seen worse wear from pencils in retail metal tins where a pencil bumps against hard metal. Anyway, due to the complex manufacturing and use of wood, few pencils are absolutely perfect in shape, lettering, painting or smoothness of the label etc..
