The art supply industry supplies students, individuals and artists with all sorts of art supply essentials like brushes, pens, canvas, paint, charcoal, drafting boards, easels, paper, clay, and assorted art supply accessories. Many art supply stores provide supportive services like painting lessons and canvas framing. Art supply stores are similar to hobby department stores but since they specialize, they have many more art supply related products to choose from. Shops are typically owned and run by managers and staff with extensive art supply knowledge. Many art supplies can be found within large chains like Target and Michael’s but family owned and operated single location and multi-location art supply stores continue to thrive in communities all over the world.

Art supply stores are ideally located within a central location of a community. Some shops offer online purchasing and delivery as an additional convenience. Other art supply stores operate exclusively online. These exclusively web-based art suppliers often specialize in unique items that are difficult to access as demand is limited. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at an in-town location. Art supply stores are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, print and computer specialists, sales associates and cashiers. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, point of sale, online ordering, billing, shipping, invoicing and art supply payments.

Our payment gateway handles credit card and debit card payments as well as e-wallet transactions like Apple Pay and Google Pay. We can communicate with art supply accounting modules through integrated APIs and a hosted payment page (HPP) solution that is secure and PCI Compliant.
