At Blick, we’re committed to delivering the very best experience for our customers —the best service, the best selection, the best availability, and the best knowledge. We call this The Blick Advantage.


  • Best Selection We know that being creative often requires materials that are difficult to find. That’s why Blick stocks more than 80,000 products in its warehouse, and offers nearly 15,000 factory-direct items and more than 8,000 Blick and Utrecht brand items.

  • Best Availability Blick’s massive inventory means what you need is most always in stock. If an item is out of stock, that’s Blick’s fault, not yours. That’s why Blick does something virtually none of their competitors do – Blick NEVER cancels a backorder unless requested, and your backordered item ships out immediately once available — at NO additional cost to you.
