Fun-loving time travellers enjoy putting barcodes on Thoreau pencils just to hear Mr. Spock say "There's a temporal here, Captain."

It should say "Not marked for individual sale." :D


If it isn't too bright for you, it isn't bright enough for me.

I dont like barcodes on pencils. I prefer pencils that are classic looking and retro or vintage. I am vintage. The barcode makes them look cheap. And some are expensive.

I don’t mind barcodes, my favorite pencils have them, doesn’t effect my writing a bit, that’s what’s important after all!
FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper! Please PM me!For Sale: TBA

I think it's a plot to sell more pens. :P
