Started as a partnership between Mr. and Mrs.Dick Blick, their kitchen was the company’s warehouse and the local post office was their “shipping department.” Offering only a lettering pen which quickly hit the best-seller lists, what was once a small mom and pop store now employs hundreds of full-time members with retail stores established in most major urban locations, all of which are company owned and operated and ever-expanding. Blick Art Materials, where Students get the best service, selection and pricing on art supplies, remains as it began a hundred years ago: a family business based in Galesburg, Illinois.
