For years, I have sworn by Prismacolors . However, I have started ordering
some of the Blick colored pencils, and they are excellent. I have compared
the two, side by side, and I can not tell the difference. It would not
surprise me if they are made by Prismacolor. They are really, really good, and
they are a little less expensive, especially when Blick runs a good sale. The
also come pre-sharpened which is nice! I did try Scholars by Prismacolor and
was not satisfied with them.
I teach middle school and keep Prangs for daily use, but I bring out the
Prismacolors and Blicks for special projects.
