I love crayola because of the variety of lines therir points can create and
their colors. I bought the class pack- (2) of them per year while at the
middle school. They would only last 1/2 year for quality "project" coloring.
 They were still good- but not good enough for projects so I would dump them
in the community box- the box that the school uses when they need markers.
When students were done with their projects I would assign them the task of
testing the markers in the community box and pitch those markers that they
themselves would not use. I'm currently using colorific markers for my
personal use to see if they are any better- haven't noticed much difference.
Looks like price will decide. Currently using Faber castell at the high
school- Don't like them, they begin to dry out after first project- still
looking for alternatives.
