Comments about Personalized Rainbow Foil Pencils - Set of 12:
Very disappointed! These were a gift for my 4 year old granddaughter. It took my husband and I several minutes AND a magnifying glass to be able to resd her name. She will never be able to read her name. Wht bother to persomalize when the print was so small and the black print blended into the dsrk color. We did also order our 3 year old grandson the personalized Pirate pecils and was pleased with both the print size and color of his name.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Can't read the type
from Minneapolis, MN
I purchased these personalized pencils to give to my students at the end of the year. I added a quote from a story we read. Sadly when they arrived I couldn't even read one of the words and the others were really dark. The dark purple near the top of the pencil and the black type face makes the type almost unreadable. Sadly I had to go with it because I didn't have time to return and reorder. I will not be ording these again.

Color combination not good.
from Salina, KS
Black printing on these pencils is not a good combination. I suggest you switch to white. I have some with white printing on them and they came out great. I am not happy with the results of these at all. Miles Kimball did set it up for me to get replacements. However, I would have preferred a different pencil color other than the original I ordered.
Late Del - Poor Quality Personalization
from Rock Hill, SC
Although the website promised delivery by Christmas, I did not receive until 12/31/13. The personalization was positioned so the it was illegible. The printing was very dark and positioned on the darkest area on the pencil.
from Viola, ar
The foil is too dark and printing only comes in black. I've been a customer for years. My grandchildren love their personalized pencils, but this pencil was not a good choice. We couldn't see their names.
Not Exactly As Shown
I've purchased pencils from Miles Kimball before and was very satisfied. I order them for our chorus to use in marking our music. This time I ordered the rainbow color, which is pretty, but our name was printed on them in black and nearly impossible to see. The pencils I ordered previously were printed in white. Also, the erasers are not white as shown in the picture. They are the reddish/brown color. The white is better and doesn't leave the ugly eraser marks.
from Apple Valley, MN
I am happy with the quick delivery of these pencils. I gave them to my grand daughter as a gift, so I don't personally know about their use. But they looked really great, her name was spelled correctly, and she loved getting them.

These will be perfect for my 7 year old granddaughter to use at school. Between the bright colors and the personalization, she'll never lose them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Kids love the colors!

We personalized these for our homeschool and the kids love the vibrant colors! I do recommend you pop some novelty pencil erasers on the ends as the hard, white erasers don't work very well.

I have ordered pencils in the past. This time I feel 'ripped off'. I didn't bother to complain since the pencils were ON SALE. Now I know why. I ordered RAINBOW pencils, yet more than half came not rainbow colored, but blue and purple. I don't believe anyone did quality control checking on the lettering either, because in McIntyre's Minstrels, the 'RE' of McIntyre, and the 'EL' of Minstrels were smudge painted together.
