Here are two of our favorite arts/crafts retailers, and what's on sale now, in their own words:
Blick Art Materials
Since their first small catalogue in 1911, Blick Art Materials remains the premier art supply source for professional artists, students, and teachers, and continues to be a family-owned business. From Adhesives and Archival Supplies through Crafts, Printmaking, and even Storage Needs, Blick has retail stores in most urban areas and adds at least one new location every year.
Blick prides itself on giving our customers the best service, best selection, best price, and best quality in the industry (and we support the arts and arts education in every way we can.) We also support our customers and offer to them the Blick Preferred Customer Card. It will save you 10% everyday on all non-sale in-stock items, get you special offers and new product info, lets you in on special double discount days of 20% off at any retail location, and gets you invited to VIP Pre-Sales and events (recently Shelly Severin of Seattle Washington won the Blick Student Car Sweepstakes. She got a brand new Scion xB and her school, Seattle Central Community College, got a $5000 donation of Blick art supplies. This could have been you!)
Your Blick Preferred Customer Membership costs only $10 annually (the fee is waived for students and teachers with valid ID.) Just sign up at any retail Blick location. If you spend more than $9 per month on art supplies, the card will save you money.
