Free Art Supply Catalogs
- Tons of art supplies with quick delivery. I've been ordering from them for over twenty years.
- Jerry's Artarama - They have two catalogs. Both are free but you have to pay for shipping for the "Full" catalog. However if you order the full catalog along with another item, they will waive the shipping costs.
- Cheap Joe's Art Stuff - They have a free catalog that they will mail to you and you can also download parts of the catalog too.
- Sax Arts and Crafts - They say that the catalogs are free to all educators but "Name of School" is not required on the form and they send one to you anyway if you leave that blank.
- Flax Art and Design - They have cover art competitions. You get your art on the cover of their next catalog and $1000 worth of things from their store if you win.
- Utrecht Art Supplies - They have a good selection of art supplies and a good drawing selection, too.
- Daniel Smith - A little pricey but a good drawing pencil selection and a lovely catalog.
Online Art Stores
If you don't live near a store that sells professional art supplies, ordering from an online store can save you time. If you shop around and compare prices, many times you'll be able to offset the cost of shipping with discounts and sale price reductions.
Art Supply Manufacturers and Distributors
Along with art supplies, many of these websites have free art projects, technical information and FAQs about their products, free samples, and contests to enter. The manufacturers usually have very responsive public relations departments which can answer all your questions about their products quickly.
