Since we opened our online store in 1998, we've been steadily focused on making
your visit the best experience it can be. Our online product inventory now exceeds
50,000 items, many of which you'll find only at dickblick.com, and we anticipate our
selection to grow by leaps and bounds with the recent acquisition of The Art Store chain.
With the deepest, most innovative product selection in the industry at the best prices
with the best service, dickblick.com is the online shop that professional artists, hobbyists,
crafters, teachers, and students turn to for art supplies.
There are a host of new and exciting site enhancements I'd like to share with you.
Combined with our superb ordering and payment options, shopping at dickblick.com has never been better.
