Hey guys! I don’t know about you, but when I started hand lettering I was pretty overwhelmed with how many supplies were out there. Getting my hands on these products and actually learning the craft was made difficult by the fact I’d have to visit several art supply stores just to find the products I was after. Why couldn’t everything just be in the one place?! Often, I’d have to rush to art stores after work which closed at 5.30pm, pay tonnes for a parking spot in the city, drive to stores that were really far from home, or shops that were only open for a couple of hours each Saturday. It was super inconvenient.

Well thankfully someone was seeing our struggle and listening to our pain! Officeworks Fitzroy has come to the rescue and now stock over 7,000 new art products!

Yeah okay great Emma, what does that mean though? Well, firstly – that’s impressive. Secondly, Officeworks stocks all the regular office supplies we find ourselves needing as creatives (paper, stationery, postage supplies, furniture, printing solutions to name a few) and NOW they have all of our favourite premium art brands in the same place, too!

Officeworks Fitzroy is in a central location on the fringe of the city and is open 7 days a week, until 9pm on weekdays, making getting there very convenient no matter what your schedule. There are no boutique art store prices here either. Officeworks has always been helping us bring our big ideas to life at everyday low prices, and the new art supplies products are no exception. You’ll find all products in store are at extremely competitive prices.

Even if you don’t live close to the Fitzroy store, you can be rest assured that when you do visit, it’s the one-stop-shop for art supplies. You’ll find absolutely everything you need once you get there (and once you get there, you’ll have a hard time leaving!).  Think: walls lined with canvasses, paint, markers, brush pens, pencils and accessories… Heaven!

Every time I visit Officeworks Fitzroy (which is on a weekly basis… #addicted) I find something new I want to try. Visiting the art supplies section has become a therapeutic activity for me, and an important part of keeping my mind and my skills fresh and the huge range allows me to push my artist limits. What better way to find inspiration than to be faced with over 7,000 different art products?!

It has also become my go-to store for workshop supplies. I can go instore and find Artline Stix, Pentel Sign Pens, Tombows, Ecoline brush pens, Micador stylist pens, Rhodia paper, all the regular supplies like erasers, sharpeners, pencils, pens (in new fancy brands now too) as well as having printing services at my fingertips for the all-important workbooks. Preparation has never been so easy.
