"What would one color be without 499 others?
Introducing the only set of colored pencils in the world that matches the span and wonder of human creativity.
Express whatever you dream, with beautiful visual precision.
Each pencil is its own story. A unique hue with an inventive name to inspire the far corners of your creativity.
Together, the colors suggest infinite possibilities."
"It's human to have favorites. To be drawn to certain colors, to have others surprise you. We believe the greatest beauty of 500 Pencils is that you don't receive all of them at once, but over the course of 20 months.
It gives you new focus as an artist, working with color families and feeling the precious nature of each pencil. We send 25 pencils a month, crafted to order. (It's not possible for us to send them any faster: that's how long they take to make.)
As you build to 500, the pencils become your story and experience. It's about enjoying an unhurried creative process, and the artist - over time - you become."
