They should have a set that includes just the new colors. It would probably be a popular and easy way for those artists who already have the previously smaller full set to order the new colors.

Hi Shirl,
I know Prismacolor has offered sets that included just the new colors in the past, but I have not heard of a new/current set of the new colors. I will ask our buyers if they have heard anything about it and get back to you when I have an answer.

Hi Shirl,
I am sorry for the delay in response, the buyers were over seas at different trade shows. I have been told that at this time Prismacolor is not planning on releasing a set of just the new colors, the only way to purchase them is individually or as part of a larger set. I am sorry for the inconvenience. If Prismacolor starts offering a "new color" set, we will more than likely start offering it. Thank you again for your inquiry and patience.
