Sept. 2010 - I was really disappointed by this store. After going online initially and seeing all Pearl Paint had to offer online, I decided to make the trip to the store in Paramus, thinking it'd be more fun and I could save on shipping. I had very specific items I wanted, which I don't think are unusual - 14/17" 40-60 lb. paper/pad, Berol Prismacolor pencils, metal sharpener with replacement blades, lock-in compass, 10 or 12" triangle, long metal ruler and masonite board. I was very disappointed as the store only carried the ruler, board and metal sharpener (without blades), whereas the online store had everything, and much more variety.
The staff was unfriendly and unavailable, had to ask at the front to page someone to come help me and waited 5 minutes, although when he finally came, the employee was nice and helpful. It was really a waste of my time.

I have gone here to pick up odds and ends for my child, assembling a painting and framing needs. I was able to save a lot of money by framing/stretching a painting myself.

Pearl Paint has everything you need in the way of art supplies. Whether you are an amateur or a professional artist you will find what you need. I've never found such an assortment of art supplies in one place except in NYC.

This Pearl is great and offers a parking lot, as opposed to its NYC store. They have a smaller store than the NYC one, but they still have a lot of hard to find art and architecture supplies.

PROS: Art & Architecture Supplies, Student Discounts
CONS:

Very good selection of products, there is a chance the hard to find item or two is in this store. Prices are not the least expensive to be found but to get everything in one store is a pleasure. Your first trip to this store should not be when you are in a hurry, help is not always available and you should get a feel for the stores' layout for the next time.

PROS: great selection
CONS: price

This is a great art supply store for both amateur crafters and professionals. They carry a wide variety of items that are often difficult to find. They also have a great selection of origami papers. Its located right on Rt. 17 and they are a large sign out front so its easy to see.

PROS: large selection

I was directed to Pearl Paint on Route 17 in Paramus when I wanted to create my own guestbook for my wedding last year. In order to get the paper for the cover, I visited Pearl Paint--this store has a wonderful selection of paper for all sorts of projects. The prices were reasonable that I selected a few different sheets to decide later what would work best with my guestbook project. Later, when I became a fledgling greeting card artist, I returned to Pearl for stamping accessories and more paper. Now that I branched out into requiring other supplies, here is where Pearl Paint had a few holes for me.

The stamping section apparently used to offer a pretty wide selection--I say used to because there are display areas for stamps and stamping accessories, but they are empty. Stamps are available for sale, but without a corresponding price list so you have to ask the staff for each stamp's price--annoying! Fortunately, one day I visited they had a sale table with stamps priced to sell. I picked up a few and some extra supplies from this clearance area.

Pearl Paint has all sorts of supplies for artists from novice to expert. They have an outstanding paint selection and their papers are really interesting patterns and designs I can't find elsewhere. I only wish the stock were replaced faster, especially the basic thick card stock in primary colors.

As a teacher, I can get a discount on items purchased with my teaching ID. They also advertise sales in a flyer, have discount coupons, and great close-outs sales. If you want to stock up on supplies, that's the time to visit Pearl Paint.

PROS: Great paper selection
CONS: Refresh stock more often

Pearl Paint is a huge art supply store. Because there is a lot of stock it looks really messy and disorganized, but it really isn't. Still, it is hard to navigate through the store unless you are really familiar with it.

A lot of items are a bit overpriced but mostly reasonable. The selection is very good and most of the time you should be able to find what you need, if it's not out of stock. The staff is helpful yet at the same time there's this aura of being too unapproachable.

If you are a teacher or student, you'll be able to get discounts all the time which is a bonus since art supplies to add up and are not cheap. Take full advantage of it.

PROS: Lots to choose from
CONS: Can be overpriced

Found what I needed the few times I went in but it was not very organized. The sales people weren't overly friendsly or helpful. Asked a few times about products I needed, found it easier to look around myself. You'll find what you need but be ready to find it yourself.

PROS: selection
