    Art supply stores should have the whole range.

    Stationary or Art store should have a nice selection. Best thing about the # 4's, the graphite is so hard it never wears out. I just ligthly sand the tip and almost never have to actually resharpen the pencil.

    I double mat most of my photos. I sign the work on the mat nearest the glass on the lower right with the title to the lower left and the copy number (edition #) closer to my signature. I also use the same information and location below the image of the board on which the photo is mounted (t-hinged). All the mat boards are t-hinged and I use an H pencil to sign everything. I find that softer pencils will smear.

    Thankyou to all that have replied. The hard lead pencil sounds like a good idea, less chance of smearing.
