Welcome to one of the unique portions of this collecting site. Here you will find a comprehensive research archive that will allow you to identify crayon boxes and other crayon items through a number of methods. The Ids used for each crayon box will not change (except in the case of Unknowns when they get identified); they are unique and because of this, an easy reference to use when buying/selling/trading crayon boxes and you need a visual picture reference. The picture thumbnails provide small photos of each container. Some entries will have detail links, this area will take the longest to complete (if ever) so most new entries will not include details. This will also be the area that will need the most input to help make it as comprehensive and accurate as possible. If you have something to contribute - a box not pictured, information to add about a box or crayons, history behind the companies that made them, or any other interesting information, please contact me via the email address on the home page.
