Blick is happy to see the great feedback we’re getting from customers about our new business relationship with Utrecht. For us and for our customers, this is very exciting news. However, actual changes made to our businesses will take some time and a lot of hard work by our staff. To answer some of your questions:
Utrecht Brand Products: Utrecht paints have been manufactured in the same Brooklyn, New York, facility for more than 60 years. Utrecht’s paints and gessoes are among the premier professional-grade media offered in the world today. This tradition will continue, and as soon as it is practical, Utrecht paints will be available in Blick stores.
Blick Selection: Over time, Blick’s broader array of products will also begin appearing in Utrecht stores. Many of these stores will eventually carry the Blick name, as their breadth of product offerings expands to equal that offered in Blick retail stores.
Please be patient with us and with our staff, as we bring the best of both companies together to provide the best possible tools for your inspirations. Please feel free to direct any additional questions to:
