Tip: Keeping Colors Safe

Store your colored pencils somewhere safe, where they won’t be dropped or shuffled around. That will protect the lead inside your pencils and keep it from cracking, so your pencils sharpen cleanly and easily.

    I find that storing markers horizontally works best. Be sure to keep the caps securely in place which will keep them from drying out. Good luck!

    Mine are standing up in pencil holders. Is this ok. Anything with ink is capped.

    Thank you
