I have always found your staff helpful, especially on your pricing policy and the only time I had found fault with a problem it was immediately rectified and replaced.
I think that the SAA is brilliant, my goods arrive on time, the prices are lower than the stores and on top of all that I get reward points, access to education and competitions. I recommend the SAA to all artists at all levels, I'm so glad that I joined!
Hi there, You have got to try this site out they are fantastic for any art materials you could imagine. Any type of material from pencils to studio easels:: There is absolutely everything for the novice to the more talented artist. If like me you cannot get enough of art then this is for you even if you are just beginning with anything to do with art then you have to at least try it.
I had one problem with my recent purchase from the SAA. I ordered a ceramic watercolour palette and when it arrived it was broken in quite a few pieces! I felt it had been badly packed. (I had purchased a similar palette from the SAA a few years ago and it arrrived in perfect condition).
Apart from this, I was impressed with the choice of products the SAA offers.I was also very happy with the speed with which I received the rest of the items I ordered.
If the SAA could improve the packaging of their items, I would be able to give them 5 stars!
I checked out the Pentel colour brush pens and compared prices and SAA honoured their promise to price match without any bother. The delivery is fast and very competitive to France. I enjoy the email tips and hints and I am sending the details to a friend .
Have you seen the catalogue for the SAA (Society for all artists).It really is good, I buy my art materials from them, I am a member too, that means I have free P&P. Loyalty points. A good guarantee system with no niggles about refunds or replacements. Same day despatch if they have the goods in stock. Good discounts on all good brands such as Windsor and Newton, Derwent, SAA's materials, brushes, paints and specials form well known artists. All of this cut out plodding arround in the rain trying to find what you need for a special effect, and being disappointed. Just curl up in a comfy chair and flick through the SAA catalogue or the discount price catalogue.
There is also a quarterly magazine with new and views form all over the county about arty goings on. You will read about art groups and many, many activities of an arty nature. I love reading it and have back copies for all the time I have belonged to the SAA which I pull out and read and re-read. There is also the painting and drawing channel, which is available on TV or on line. I am so pleased that I'm a member of SAA. Think about it maybe you would enjoy having them to show you all the old and new tips for inspiration.
I have been an saa member for quite a long time and I have never failed to be delighted with my purchases and the service I recieved. I like the reviews of products in the Paint magazine which will often prompt me to look for them in the catalogue. Your free delivery service is absolutely invaluable and so quick- please keep up the good work!
Shopping with the SAA is so very easy. Not only is the catalogue clear and comprehensible, but seems to be written BY artists FOR artists. Delivery is second to none and free of charge. Prices are extremely competitive. Plenty of choice. Would recommend it to anyone, whether professional or amateur.
A well run company with something for all. Would recommend to all my colleagues. The Paint magazine is something to look forward to and orders are always received promptly. Well done SAA.
Such a wide selection and all delivered to your door within a day or so! whats not to like
Very good range of items - brilliant staff the are happy to help and have a good knowledge. It really feels like one big family being a member of the SAA - I really enjoy the programmes on Sky tv.
SAS provides a comprensive range of available art supplies at excellent prices, complimented by a realistic points/discount reward scheme. No more driving around searching for items in various art shops anymore for me. Cost of annual membership is no more than I would spend on occasional art mags, and SAS bi-monthly magazine replaces those purchases anyway. A happy member.
if you are interested in painting join S.A.A i find them very helpful and their delivery is second to none, also their magazine has lots of interesting tips and projects.
Please visit this site and you will not be disappointed. I have bought several videos of Hazel Soan and they are just great. Although I live in Monterrey, Mexico, the items are shipped promptly to my home address and I play the PAL format in my laptop connected to a large TV screen. Wow!!!
The content of this page is very large but you can find things easily. Take a look at it!!
I have always loved drawing and painting, but haven't done it for years. At the beginning of the year I decided this was the project for this year, then I stumbled on your tv programme and it ignited that passion to get started. It's so full of great step by step instructions and tips, and I am so pleased that as members we get a great discount, otherwise I couldnt have fulfilled my dream. Can't wait for 'postie' to deliver my order and glad it's quick as I can't wait to practise them and get my ideas onto paper. Thank you all so much, appreciate you service and sharing all your expertise with us.
What I do like about the SAA, is the art materials which are for sale, and also just as important is the free delivery on everything you order when you are a member.
I also do enjoy reading the published edition of Paint, which you send every now and again.
Yes I am well satisfied with the SAA.
The SAA is the first place I look for replacement art materials for myself or my painting group members. The orders are fulfilled fast and arrive in good condition, ready for the next weeks work. As we live in the deep countryside, the cost of petrol to art stores with rather limited stocks is pretty prohibitive. I could not recommend the SAA more highly. The only draw back is the focus on water based media but the range of others is always increasing. Thank you SAA.
The service is excellent. I would happily recommend S A A to anyone interested in art. When ordering by phone the girls are always most helpful and friendly. I have only ordered once on line but I was equally as pleased with the service.
You must joint the SAA, you will never want for advice, support, information and resources. SAA has it covered. I have been a member since 1992 and always recommend it to my artistic friends. The magazine is so informative and inspiring. The professional Artists affiliated to the SAA are amazing and so willing to share their tips and techniques. I have managed to attend many of their workshops. There is so much more SAA offers but I will run out of space and time to write it all down.
My last order was watercolour pencils for a friends birthday. So quick to order and brilliant delivery. If you are short of time and it's a painting friend's birthday the SAA is top of the league.
This service has been all that I expected and more. The people that man the telephones are very helpful and informative. I would certainly recommend them and SAA to everyone that I come in contact with that is interested in art and crafts. Thank you SAA. Regards P Humphreys
My recent order was dispatched promptly and arrived the next working day -as I ordered on A Friday Afternoon the parcel arrived at 7-30 am on the Monday Morning.
Everything I ordered was included as well as a lovely book on Watercolour Landscapes -and the SAA Magazines and catalogue.
I felt right to buy from a company, which is more than that. I think the SAA deserve to be successful. They do try and help their members to be better artists also.
