Comparison Between Crayola and Prismacolor Colored Pencils

Everyone certainly has their own point of view regarding comfort in drawing. The results of the drawing also depend on the quality of the professional colored pencils used. If you are worried about buying a product with a lot of colors, you should try it first before buying it. Many stationery stores will give you the flexibility to try them out directly on paper.

Here we have compared Crayola and Prismacolor for you:

Crayola itself is a manufacturer of children’s toys from America. Crayola has been established since 1885 (it’s been 129 years) and has changed its name until finally, it became “Crayola” which is very familiar to this day. Her most famous products are crayons and silly putty toys. 1 pack of Crayola colored pencils contains 12 pcs of colored pencils consisting of yellow, orange, red-orange, red, yellow-green, green, sky blue, blue, violet, light brown, brown, and black.

On the back of the package, there is also a note that the Crayola colored pencils are made from reforested wood and do not contain tropical forest wood. So the wood for making these colored pencils does not make the forest bare. In addition, on the front of the package, there are also the words “non-toxic pencil.” so the pencil is safe to use, although you have to be careful too. I myself like the thick color and soft texture. So it is easy to use for coloring paper and the result is thick too. I prefer to color with colored pencils instead of oil crayons because the tip is sharper, so I can more freely color the small details.

Compare Pros & Cons Crayola Colored Pencils


  • Many Different Color set Options
  • Decent Intensity
  • Great Price


  • Poor Blending

Prismacolor is one of the most well-known brands of colored pencils. These colored pencils are suitable for use by beginners who want to become more professional. Prismacolor has a very soft pencil eye, which results in fine strokes. Prismacolor colored pencils are easy to mix, and they also have great pigmentation. The only drawback is to be careful not to break easily. This color pencil for one set contains 72 pencils, but if you need more colors, you can buy 1 set that contains 12 – 150 pencils. If you want to try these colored pencils you can buy them with a set of 12 colors.

For a price comparison, Crayola is definitely cheaper than Prismacolor due to their different grades. You can use Crayola for children, teens, and adults. However, for Prismacolor, we strongly recommend it only for professional use because the grade is artist-grade.
