History


The Hi-Jen Crayon Co. was a small operation out of Valley Park, MO that started sometime in the mid 1920s.  They registered their Sunset crayon brand on Nov 8, 1927.  Documentation seems to show that at some time they were bought out by American Crayon Co. prior to 1947 as it was American Crayon Co. that renewed the patent on the crayon line by then.  There is only one example box that is known.
