while browsing at “pencil revolution”:http://pencilrevolution.com/2005/11/tri-flowers-of-dixon-splendor.html i read of a new pencil released by the fine folks at dixon – “the tri-conderoga”:http://www.triconderoga.com/. the ticonderoga has long been a favourite of pencil enthusiasts everywhere, and dixon has been hard at work creating a new pencil to delight and ensnare the hearts of their longstanding client base.
the “reviews”:http://pigpog.com/node/1015/ i read of the tri-conderoga were all favourable, and i wanted to get my hands on one of these fine writing sticks. i did some quick googling and came up with a short list of online retailers that distribute the pencils. however, down each online avenue of merchandise i was met with the same frustration. no one ships tri-conderogas to canada.
i decided to go straight to the top and email the fine folks at “dixon”:http://www.prang.com/ who had created this pencil in the first place. a day or two after my initial email a very nice customer service representative emailed me back to let me know that i could order them through grand & toy, and that she had sent me FREE SAMPLES in the mail. if i was in love with the people at dixon before this was turning into a strange and forceful lust.
i’m awaiting with anticipation the arrival of my sleek, black, trianglicious pencils.
thank you dixon!
