Size Name: BOX
There are many excellent colored pencil brands available today, with some of the premier labels being Caran D'Arche (Switzerland), Conté (France), Faber Castell (Germany), Talens (the Netherlands) and Koh-i-noor (Czech Republic). Each pencil brand has its own loyal following, and it is certainly true that the performance characteristics of each leaves a unique "signature" on paper (i.e., the experienced eye can sometimes tell which brand of pencil was used for a different piece of artwork by examining luminosity, reflection, depth of color, and others). I have used all these brands myself, having brought back from Europe entire sets from various manufacturers, and often in different sub types ("artist," "student," and so on). Some also have added touches that really make a pencil set shine, including rounded triangular shafts with subtle inlaid grips, bonded coatings between the lead and the pencil wood to minimize lead shattering, and soft textured surfaces for improved gripping and comfort. Some sets are now even beginning to adhere to the lightfastness specifications as developed by the Colored Pencil Society of America.

So, what should we think about a set of American made colored pencils when they are competing with these premier brands, some of which have been in business for centuries? The answer might be surprising to hear: after using all these brands for an extended period of time, I can say that these Prismacolor "Premier" pencils easily hold their own against the world's best colored pencils.

What are the characteristics of the Prismacolor "Premier" pencils that make them so good?

1. Smooth, silky, and rich laydown of color
2. Little smearing, even when laying down dense patches of color
3. Ability to blend colors as needed
4.

Size Name: 150 Count Verified Purchase
I'm new to Prismacolor pencils as they are a bit hard to get and expensive to buy in Australia. The ones I bought from Amazon are about half the price including postage than what I can buy them here. They are a really high quality artist pencil and they allow you to layer your colors and also to burnish. For those of you that aren't familiar with burnishing its a way of laying the color on in a heavier hand so that your pencil actually goes on thicker and takes on a waxier or almost painted look. These are the only pencil I have found so far that this technique really works properly with. They also blend together really well and the range of colors is just awesome. They are more expensive than what you may buy in your average office/school supply store but this is defiantly a case of you get what you pay for, if you want quality it's worth the bit extra. You really can't go wrong with these. A little tip: If you don't want your lead to break when you sharpen your pencils use a battery or electric sharpener. Often when you get breaks as you sharpen its because you are slightly twisting the pencil as you sharpen it and these ones are just too good to waste.

Size Name: 132 Count Verified Purchase
I bought this from Amazon to replace a set of 132 I had bought at a local art store. I had given my previous store-bought set to my nephew and he agreed to replace it. The price on Amazon was about $15-$20 less than in the local store so I ordered this set from Amazon. Thought I'd be a good guy and save my nephew a few $$.
It arrived in good time and was shrink-wrapped, so I assumed it was factory fresh, as advertised, as was my store-bought set.
When I opened it, I was a little surprised to see all the pencils were sharpened, unlike the store-bought set, which had no sharpened points, just factory-fresh flat ends. A little different, but acceptable to me.
I then went through all the pencils, to separate them by color family in their plastic carriers. That's when I noticed most of these pencils were made in Mexico, a few were made in the USA, a few didn't specify where they were made, and one pencil actually had "Scholar" imprinted, and a different number system, which is a lower-grade (student) pencil.
Most had "Premier" engraved, but a few did not.
I'm not saying any of these pencils came used, they were all new, but it looks as if someone, somewhere, put these 132 together from different sets, some possibly older, and of course the student-grade pencil.
If I had to do it all over again, I'd replace my store-bought set with....well....another store-bought set.
Definitely not the usual fine Amazon purchase I'm used to. I actually feel, a little, cheated.
Disappointing.
