|What Our Customers Have to Say...
|"My boyfriend and I recently took up painting. I took up watercolors and he took up oil painting. We don't have a lot of storage space so he laid his paint tubes on the floor in our second bedroom overnight. Keep in mind we have that light silver carpet that EVERYTHING stains! Well, tonight I noticed a dark brown circle the size of a nickel on the carpet and I thought it was chocolate so I didn't worry about it, until we had been going in and out of the room through the night and I noticed brown STREAKS all over the carpet, down the hall in our bedroom...just EVERYWHERE! And I was trying to figure out what it was...I was sitting on the floor and put my hand down to pick up the paints and suddenly my hand was brown. Naturally, I freaked out! We rent and there was NO WAY we could afford to replace the carpets in our place!!! I was trying to figure out what to do and then remembered he bought a Kiss-Off Stain Remover. I was very skeptical, I have to say. He took the stick, started rubbing and the stains, even the deep ones where large amounts of paint had been ground into the carpet, started to come out!!! I absolutely couldn't believe it! I kept waiting for the stains to reappear but they didn't. I am a complete clean freak and could never have even thought of going to sleep tonight if we hadn't used the Kiss-Off Stain Remover. I wish I had taken a picture so I could show you the difference. ALL OF THE STAINS ARE GONE! I can't thank you enough. You saved us and our carpet!"
"I would like to firstly say how much I enjoy your charcoal products. I have been using the General 6B charcoal pencil for more than a decade, and have recently discovered your powdered charcoal product. I love the way it produces a smooth velvet tone in shadows and lowlights when creating chiaroscuro drawings. I also love the way it bonds with the drawing surface better than a pastel would."
"I would like to compliment you on your exquisite Charcoal pencils. I've been an illustrator for over 20 years and your Charcoal pencils are wonderful. I especially like to use your #557 HB Hard charcoal pencil and your white charcoal pencils."
"Just thought I would tell you how much I enjoy your products. Bet you don't get many people that take the time to do that, huh? Just purchased the earth tone sticks, and boy what a treat. I am kind of new at drawing and schetching [sic], and your products are the only thing I use. I am NEVER disappointed [sic] with the pencil (Just what I do with them, sometimes), but I truely [sic] love your products. Keep up the good work. Oh and I love your web site! Thanks again."

"I am an art teacher in Michigan and just started to inventory my new supplies. I was very excited to see your layout pencils are made here in the USA. So much of what we order comes from China and I am very glad to support your company. We need more U.S. companies to make people aware of American made products.
Keep Going !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
“I just received and cannot put down my new Sketch and Wash Pencil. This is a fun and excellent product. I am loving it! Great product.”
“I have loved your charcoal pencils for 30 years. I have recently used your sanguine sticks and have made them mandatory for all of my drawing classes.”
“I’ve always found your pencils to be superb quality and they price can’t be beat here in the USA. I bought the #10 drawing pencil set as the first set of different hardness graphite pencils I had and that set has been wonderful. I bought it for my students too after I had it for a while, and recommend it when friends are looking for art pencils.”
“I am writing to tell you how much I enjoy and appreciate your Kimberly Graphite Drawing Kit #25. I love to do pencil drawings, and your kit, designed for that works splendid. All the different shades of pencils make it easy and fun for me to shade my drawings. I don’t know how I would do it without them. Another thing that I like about your products is the fact that they are made in the USA! Thank you so much for making quality products that do their job well.”
