It didn't even come wrapped to protect it from breaking.

There way no receipt included or any paperwork whatsoever with instructions for returns or complaints.

When the individual boxes were opened every piece was broken.

I have tried many brands of chalk during my 35 years of teaching, and this chalk is by far the best.

Absolutely love this stuff! Reminds me of the high-quality chalk the teachers used back when I was in grade school. Writes REALLY nice, even on our old beat up chalkboard.

Wholeheartedly recommend this product.

This chalk is fantastic! We have a chalkboard at the house for inspirational messages and what not, the chalk it came with was garbage, absolute garbage. My wife ordered this Prang chalk and I thought she was crazy, I had always assumed that chalk was chalk, but this stuff writes like a dream, erases like a dream, and I'd pay twice as much for it. If you're in the chalk market, this chalk is for you.

Yep, I use chalk a lot in my woodworking. If you don't mark the pieces clearly, you will end up with a box front upside down or cut the miters on the wrong side. Marking with a pencil on dark woods is hard to see and pencils make a mark in the wood that is hard to sand out at times. Crayons leave a wax behind that can interfere with your final finish. I find that these inexpensive chalk sticks are the way to go. Very easy to see, they have prevented quite a few "disasters", and after that final assembley the chalk wipes right off. You can even lay a piece on its side, run it down the length of the wood and define those "low" spots. I also use it to mark the specie's of wood on rough piece's I bring home, especially the exotics.

Recommend to all woodworkers.

Four simple words: I LOVE THIS CHALK! Silly to get so excited about something so simple. But this chalk is great. I've tried different brands, but Prang was the best by far. It writes clean and smooth on the chalk board and erases very easily. There is nothing left behind.

I looked in several different stores for some chalk, any white chalk, to use in my Sunday School class, but couldn't find any chalk. Most schools use dry erase boards nowadays I guess. Though I'll always be partial to chalk since that's what I grew up using. I turned to Amazon in my chalk quest and was impressed by the reviews of this brand. I have not been disappointed. I will be purchasing the colored chalk as well. Prang Hygieia Chalk, 3.25 x .375 Inch Chalk Sticks, 12 Count, Assorted Colors (61400)

The box came quickly and all the sticks were intact. No broken pieces!

UPDATE 5/25/12: While wandering through a staples office supply store, I found boxes of my beloved Prang chalk and about fainted when I saw the price was ninety nine cents per box! Four dollars cheaper than what I paid on Amazon! Luckily I hadn't ordered the colored chalk yet and snatched up a box at the store. And it wasn't even on sale!

That's the jist of it. I ordered this here via Amazon, and when it arrived, there were only four pieces out of the twelve in the box that were whole. All of the other pieces were broken. Many were broken into pieces that were so tiny, that I can't even hold those to write with. The box was just shattered. I didn't bother returning them, because it would be more of a hassle than it's worth for the price I paid. I plan to just use the pieces that I can, and toss all the rest that are too tiny to hold onto and write with. And from then on, I will only buy this chalk in a store, where I can open up the box and peek in, and make sure that they aren't shattered to bits inside.

Aside from that, I would like to say that this is my first time using Prang chalk, and I can honestly tell you this is the best chalk I have ever used. The writing is so crisp and clear, and my penmanship looks so much more tidy now that I have switched brands. The chalk erases easily as well, and it's just perfect. I will only buy Prang chalk from now on. (But probably not online again). ;)

All pieces arrived broken in at least 3 pieces, some sticks were crushed. Even worse, everything else in the box was covered with chalk dust. Amazon didn't even bother to wrap the chalk in protective packaging. Instead, it was free to bounce around a mostly empty box and collide with other items.
