This is the most useful product box I’ve seen in awhile. I’m floored at the amount of thought and ingenuity that went into making the packaging useable and functional for these old pencil sets. The snap closure with leatherette band keeps the pencils from escaping inside a bag or desk drawer.
Not to mention that I was tickled to find an old set of watercolor pencils in such good shape.
The box also folds open to act as a stand to see the pencils and keep them within reach.
I’d be willing to pay an extra couple of dollars for manufacturers to improve product packaging to this level of usability and functionality. Tin boxes that can be reused, paperboard that can double as a stand like this, anything but cheap vacuform or cellophane!
