These days great selection is something hard to come by. People may get used to online shopping, but being able to physically see what you are getting is totally different experience.

Their stationary are pretty great: from organizers to portfolio cases. I come here for just to look what they have when I come to NY.

Even if you are not a FREAK for office supplies, stationery, and all things color-coded, this store is still a playground. File folders never looked so good. Every color, texture, shape imaginable; plus picture frames, cute little gifty items, business card holders its overwhelming! And, of course, pricey. But their sales are great; when I stopped by, many items were half off, making the Italian refillable journal I bought just $10. Which almost made up for the $25 I spent on adorable thank-you notes.

PROS: they have EVERYTHING. and it's all gorgeous.
CONS: it's expensive.

Sam Flax has a good selection of office supplies, including chairs, tables, lamps, and regular stationary. Most of the things they carry are also "designer" and of better quality than other office supply stores. It costs a little more but still a good price for what you're getting, which is good quality, good looking stuff. They also have some cool little gadgets and things, mostly stuff that you would just put on your desk at work to keep you entertained throughout the day.

Sam Flax has 3 or 4 locations in Manhattan so it easy fairly easy to bump into one. They all seem about the same a so so selection of art supplies, a nice selction of chairs for offices and lots of frames and stationary. I'm not sure if it is me or them but I don't find them as impressive as I did 20 years ago. You'll do much better going to Pearl Paint if you need art supplies and every neighborhood in Manhattan now seems to have a bunch of better than average stationary stores.

PROS: A lot of merchandise in one place
CONS: pricey others do it better

Message from Flax Sam Inc

Sam Flax arrived in America from Eastern Europe in 1898 at the age of seven. Sam started working at a young age in order to contribute to the familyβ??s funds and to bring additional family members over from Europe. After an 11 year apprenticeship at an art supply shop in the metropolitan New York area, Sam went into business on his own in 1920 selling art supplies from a push cart. Over the years Sam helped relatives establish independently owned and operated Flax art stores throughout the country. Sam Flax passed away in 1969 leaving his three sons with the business and to pass on his legacy. In 2003 the Flax legacy was passed on to a new management team, bringing fresh and additional creative ideas to the business. Even today, we often hear how Sam Flax helped both suppliers and his customers get started in their careers and professions by selling them their first art set or by providing a vendor with his first order. Sam Flax Stores has been recognized by many as innovators specializing in offering upscale, high design, quality products. Our inventory has expanded, grown, and defied categorization over the years in our efforts to bring you the best products and creative services available. Our future plans include continuing to expand our furniture, framing and presentation lines into custom branding and unparalleled selection.
