Where do I start? We artists deserve better! I was tipped of by an employee that some of their merchandise is cheep knock-off brands that they've been passing off as the name brand items! Try Dick Blick or Hobby Lobby. I also don't like the threat of drive by shootings where I shop!

Business Response:

This is a completely false statement. We have never and will never attempt to defraud any customer. We carry products from countries all over the world including Italy, France, Russia, Germany, China, Japan, Korea, United States, Australia and others. In most cases we offer multiple brands of products providing customers with choices. There are many producers in China who manufacture high quality products. To claim that we attempt to conceal the country of origin or attempt passing off imported products as name brand is insulting. We have been servicing artists for nearly 40 years. I promise, that I would not jeopardize our reputation by doing what you claim. If you have a problem with a product you purchased from us, I encourage you to email me at drcohn@commercialartsupply.com and I would be happy to talk to you about it. By the way both Dick Blick and Hobby Lobby have products made in China as well.

I love The Art Store. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the prices are very low. I just picked up frame kits for something like 40% off. Foam core is always at a discount too. Although I've been buying my art supplies from them for a couple of years now, I hadn't used their framing service until this past week, and lo and behold, they're the best around! First of all, when I asked about turn-around-time to cut a mat window (no glass or framing needed), they said "about 20 minutes." I was shocked, since other places needed at least a couple of days. They did a great job with that order, so I asked if they could mount a very fragile print. Malisa (sp?) took command of the job, and handled it with the meticulous care it required. The result was flawless. Since I've been visiting the framing dept. for the past week, I've met other staff too, and they've all gone out of their way to be helpful. What a great resource we have in Syracuse!

This is a large warehouse looking building near down town Syracuse. It is not terribly far from campus, either. Nearly anything you want is available here, and for less than one would pay buying the supplies from the SU Bookstore. The staff is very helpful, and this is an excellent place for novice art students to pick up their supplies, as knowledeable staff is willing and able to explain what everything is for. Additionally, if you explain what you need the items for, they will recommend what will best suit you, for the best price.

Commercial Art Supply truly is an artist's paradise. Located just east of downtown Syracuse, this store caters to professional and amateur artists alike. Offering quality paints, canvases, brushes, instruction books, pen and ink supplies, and so much more, this store makes shopping for art supplies incredibly convenient.

This store is frequented by local artists as well as students from nearby Syracuse University. Staff is well trained and knowledgeable about the needs of their special clientele. If you can't find it at Commercial Art Supply, it probably doesn't exist. They will also special-order items that they do not have in stock.

Commercial Art Supply is one of greater Syracuse's best kept secrets and a must for any artist. Stop by and check out this interesting and educational little store. You'll be glad you did.
