#1 – Blick Art
Blick Art is my favorite place to purchase most of my coloring mediums. They have the best price I’ve found on both Copic markers and Prismacolor colored pencils and shipping is FREE on orders of $35 or more!

PROS: Best prices. Great selection of art supplies. Quick shipping.

CONS: At times many Copic colors are out of stock.


Blick sells individual Copic Sketch Markers for just $5.24 which is the best price I’ve found.

Prismacolor Colored Pencils are discounted 80% from MSR at Blick making them an amazing deal. This set of 36 pencils lists for $73.99.  Blick’s price: $19.25 – Amazing!

#2 – Simon Says Stamp

For stamps, dies and all things card making Simon Says Stamp has an awesome selection. Shipping in the USA is $6.99 for orders under $75 and $7.99 for orders $75 and up.

PRO – Simon Says Stamp has the best selection of supplies for card making and rubber stamping that I’ve found.

CON – The shipping department tends to be a bit slower (though not terribly slow) than some of the other online companies. Typically I get my orders here in Florida in 7 to 10 days.

#3 – Paper and More

Paper and More is my go to place for 100# cardstock. It can be purchased in bulk or as individual sheets and comes it a variety of colors and sizes. Shipping is FREE with purchases over $99 or a flat rate of $5.99 for orders $99 or less. Envelopes and specialty cardstock are also available.

PRICES: Solid Cardstock 8 1/2 x 11:   100 Pack: $20.99  (.21/ea)   Individual Sheets: $.50/ea

PROS: Great quality cardstock. Fast Shipping. Great price on packs of 100. Many colors are the same as some popular stamp companies.

CONS: Purchasing individual sheets at $0.50/ea can be a bit more costly than purchasing the packs of 100.
