Those of us in the UK know how difficult it is to source Col-Erase pencils With only two companies holding stock – Refuelled .com and Chromatech. On Refuelled.com’a webpage they have announced that they are not accepting orders and are expecting to cease trading later this year. chromatech is accepting orders but have not had stocks of the black or Tuscan Red (my choices) for some time. Some of you will know of Cult Pens who are a Devon based supplier of pens, pencils, some art supplies and other stationery. They are looking to add to their stock and on their Facebook page today they have asked for suggestions. A couple of us have already suggested Col-Erase but the more of us that do the more likely they will consider stocking them.August 3, 2020 at 12:31 pm #27214MatthewKeymaster
Thanks for sharing this. Anyone who lives the UK definitely add suggestions for where you purchase your col-erase pencils. I know people in the UK who can get way more than us here in the US.

Here are some link from Paul living in the UK.
Col-Erase Pencils: https://www.chromacolour.co.uk/prismacolor-col-erase-pencils-box-of-12.html#
They are both currently out of the black pencils, I was lucky enough to grab the last 2 verithin pencils; that said, it will be worth it for UK students to bookmark these websites and add the pencils to their wish lists so they will be notified when they restock.
I currently source my col-erase and in the future, unless restocked on UK sites will be sourcing my verithin pencils from the website below; Blick. Though this is a US seller, they ship to the UK. Orders typically arrive within 10 days with Fed Ex and are, at the moment, constantly in stock of both black col-erase and verithin pencils. Though import costs and shipping does apply here, on small orders the cost is not too bad and they are a reliable source.
Lastly for those looking for a reliable source of Strathmoore 400 series drawing paper in the UK, there is a sell on eBay that restocks 2 pads at a time regularly, I have used them a couple of times.

Thanks for the link. I did try Blick a couple of years ago and was told they would not ship to the UK. It’s great to know that this is no longer the case. I have also contacted Jackson’s customer service and was lucky enough to get someone who knew the Col-Erase from her college days. Although she seemed to think there were some licensing issues preventing them from stocking Prismacolor she was going to chase it with the buying department.
