Unfortunately, we do not sell replacement caps for our pencils.

What does it mean when a product has the “AP Seal” on it?

Products bearing the AP (Approved Product) Seal of The Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI) are certified in a program of toxicological evaluation by a medical expert to contain no materials in sufficient quantities to be toxic or injurious to humans or to cause acute or chronic health problems.  This program is reviewed by ACMI's Toxicological Advisory Board.  These products are certified by ACMI to be labeled in accordance with the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, as amended by the Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act, and ASTM D 4236.
