So. world wide pencil shortage...




"A surge in the number of people buying adult colouring books has threatened pencil stocks world-wide as manufacturers struggle to cope with an increased demand for quality colour pencils."

Does anyone use them?

I do my own illustrations for my nieces/nephews books and use water color pencil. Good thing I just ordered a new batch!

I have a whole shoe box of left overs from the kids. I don't think I'll ever run out!

I LOVE to color and have a box of colored pencils in my desk drawer.

I have noticed all of the adult coloring pages that have flooded the market lately, but I had no idea it was causing a pencil shortage.
