Great Craft Box, May Need DIY Padding
from San Jose, CA
Comments about ArtBin 1-Tray Art/Craft Box:
I've had these boxes for years. I have like 4 of them. I love them. I like the way they shut. They feel secure. However, as much as I love them, I have recently come across a video which talked about storing pencils properly and find myself to agree with what they mean; store your pencils in a secure holder not a box like this; ie, use Global Art Pencil Cases, Blick Mesh Zipper Bags, or something similar, any way to keep the pencil core from slamming into the wall of the box. You can customize the box by adding your own DIY cushion to the inside of the box, but if you don't pad the walls, the core inside the pencil can be damaged when the box is sloshed around, causing the pencils to break and later snap when sharpened or when applied to surfaces. I am very rough with these boxes. Not all the cores of my pencils are broken, some could have broke because of poor pencil quality make or from actually dropping them individually. So I personally don't recommend this for pencils or brushes. Brushes too could hit the wall inside the box, damaging the bristles. I have no idea why they would picture a pencil and a brush inside this box. But it IS great for everything else. So like; scissors, sharpeners, erasers, tubes of paint, pens, markers, blenders, stumps, good luck charms, your lunch for the day, whatever. Or miscellaneous things you don't mind tossing in a box. I would just recommend padding them in some way, and you have plenty of room in the box for that. Even a cheap rag will help. Having said this, if you can keep this box in a stationary place, which I have a hard time doing, then putting pencils in them are okay. DIY padding with bubble wrap or saran wrap! will help a lot too. The advantages of doing it this way as opposed to buying a pencil case or bag is that it is a lot easier to put a way.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent Storage for Pens, Pencils, and
By Artist NAN
from Seattle, WA
I use these small boxes to separate out materials here at home and find them indispensable for having materials ready to go out sketching.The boxes are sturdy and do not come open during travel.I have been using them for years and needed to add a couple more for my next trip to the Oregon Coast to draw and paint.

Excellent size for graphite pencils
from Keene, NH
This case is the perfect size for my graphite pencils, sharpeners, erasers, and blending tools. The plastic is sturdy, but light in weight, and it has a nice textured surface that is easy to grip. The latch closes solidly. There are no dividers inside the case, which allowed me to fashion my own divider out of heavyweight black paper to configure the interior to my liking. Unless you prefer integrated fixed plastic dividers, this case is an excellent choice.
