    Sanford or Prismacolor?

    Is there a difference in terms of quality between Sanford and Prismacolor?

    Pic related, this is what I'd like to order from the USA/Europe (not available at all in France), but I found out that some online shops used two different brands, with a strange same-looking box, so I'm really confused.

    Thanks in advance, and my apologies if my question was a bit dumb.

    Those Col-Erase pencils are owned by Prismacolor now, by the way. My memory is a bit fuzzy on it, but I think Prismacolor bought out Sanford, so they produce all of their products now.

    In any case, I don't know if this is my own imagination or not, but the Col-Erase feel a bit waxier than Prismacolor colored pencils (especially Verithins). I like 'em for doing penciling or studies, but I have noticed that the dark brown and black seem to have trouble with coverage when compared to Prismacolor's Verithins.

    Col-Erase and Prismacolor are both owned by Sanford. Otherwise, here's what's been said on this topic before: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...se-vs-Premiere
