    Laurentian Pencil Crayons
    First hi everyone, this is my first post and I hope I have put it in the right category. I have been trying to locate a store or online location to order or purchase Laurentian pencil crayons. I sketch and color patterns from imagery and use some colors more than others. I keep purchasing more and more complete boxes of pencil crayons just to be able to obtain a certain color.
    If I could buy those specific colors from the suppliers or manufacturer I would not have 50 boxes of pencil crayons and only one purple one... lol!
    Any information that you could give to me would be greatly appreciated. I know the neighborhood school appreciates my donations of the 'bulk' leftovers, but it is getting just too expensive to do that anymore.

    Thank you in advance my new friends...
    (this is a great idea for a form... )
    Have a great day!!

    Hi Dee!

    I figured out that it's actually spelled "Laurentien", and it's a Canadian company - a division of Sanford. Laurentien has a website "" which has a contact form. If you Google Sanford Canada, lists a phone number as 800-668-4575.
    Also - THIS IS BETTER, I THINK. I got curious about this, especially when I realized you meant colored pencils (American version!). Since Sanford makes Laurentien, I googled up Sanford single-color pencils and found their Prismacolor line of single colors come in boxes of 12, with eraser or not. Just off the bat found and went to "colored and drawing pencils" section. You might do better googling around for prices, but my guess is Sanford Prismacolor will be the closest to Laurentien pencil crayons.

    Hope this is what you want!

    Well I went to staples and looked at pencil crayons but all I needed was a purple so I asked a staple person if I could buy only one of the pencil crayons and she said sure and then I said its purple so she took the purple from the box and scaned it and I was then on my marry way

    pumibel agrees: Prismacolors are great- you can get single pencils at

    I use the watercolor pencils Prisma and some other brand.
    I like them because you can wet what you want and it turns to watercolor
