Obviously the best thing about pencils is the tactile experience - seriously, what's more delightful than writing with a freshly sharpened pencil?
So of course the first necessity of a pencil store is a test station! We adore watching customers fall in love with a pencil from the first stroke written in our test book. And because it's such a delightful experience, the test books end up full of incredible doodles and musings, all joyfully written with newly-discovered writing utensils.
As we fill our test books, we'll be sharing our favorite sketches and notes from the test station, and hope that you find as much delight in them as we do! And of course, we invite you to stop by and add one of your own!
Here are our favorites from our first-ever test book!
Deputy Pencil Lady
P.S. Our notebook of choice for the test book is the amazing Baron Fig Confidant (sorry - we only sell them in stores!) - specifically because Joe Crace claims that the notebook is the best for writing in pencil! It also doesn't hurt that the notebook covers are designed to lay open!
