Pencils4artists began life in a small art shop in the beautiful town of Dartmouth.  Owners Emilie & Alan Heard became increasingly aware that customers were finding it harder to find single colour and graphite pencils in 'bricks & mortar' art shops and so decided to try to gather a collection of the best drawing and sketching pencils available in one place where artists could browse types and brands of pencils and, most importantly, buy in singles.

As time has gone on they have been finding more suppliers from various parts of the world and increased their stock to cover around 6000 loose stock pencils, tins and collections and accessories.

The ethos here at P4A is simple, good stock, fast delivery and excellent customer service. 

We always welcome your comments or requests for hard to find brands of pencil so please feel free to email us at  Often it is customer requests that lead us to new products and suppliers and if we can help, we will!

We aren't perfect, but we are very aware of how we can reduce our carbon footprint. At P4A we try very hard to re-use all the boxes, bubble wrap, and anything else we can in order to get your order to you safely. We are also rolling out this product for the more delicate items - Eco friendly paper wrap.  Many of our sets that come in blisters or plastic have the option of loose stock banded in recyclable card.  
If you have any other ideas about how we can be more green please let us know!
