With over 60,000 available products, DickBlick.com is one of the largest art supply retailers online. Blick also makes claim to being the "largest discounter of art materials." Similarly large art supply dealers include Utrecht, Jerry's Artarama and Amazon.com.
All the large dealers offer basic art supply products and more, online. Amazon.com is different in that it functions as go-between, selling art supplies from different retailers. Amazon.com also provides supplier ratings and customer reviews, allowing the prospective buyer to read about user experiences with the product. All the retailers offer special sales and discounts, so comparison shopping can help customers save money on their purchases.
