Checking the Status of Your Order
There are two ways to check the status or your order. You can either call us, and we'll look it up for you immediately, or use the link in your receipt email. The link should direct you to a page on this site with your order details, current status, and tracking info if available. If you call, please specify that the order was placed via the website, as it cuts down on the searching time and thus the time to get your answer.

Mail Order
If you would like to order via postal mail, you can either download the printable order form below, or browse this site and fill a cart, then print it, and mail it to us with a check or money order. Using the website cart will get you an accurate total for your purchase. If you don't have the ability to print, you could simply write down your list of items (including item number, description and price) and mail it to us along with a check or money order for your total. You may also place an order over the phone, which is convenient if you have any questions about particular products or policies. Our phone sales staff is VERY knowledgeable, and can guide you to the best products for your needs.

Shipping Information
Generally all domestic orders are shipped via either UPS or USPS. P.O. Box or correctional facility shipments are required to be sent via USPS and will therefore have limited tracking. International orders are shipped U.S. Postal Service. Alaska and Hawaii are done on a case by case basis depending on who can offer the best rate for the package in question. Ground Shipping Rates:

For the sake of simplicity, our shipping prices for the 48 contiguous United States is based on order total.

If your order total is Flat Rate
Less than $100 $20.00
$100 to $200 $30.00
over $200 FREE!

Alaska and Hawaii - For shipping purposes, there is no real ground service to AK or HI. Therefore, we do our best to find the best fit for the products in question. You will be notified of the shipping charges before we ship to ensure that you are okay with them, we understand that they can get out of hand on large or exceptionally heavy items, and we don't want to give you any unwanted financial surprises.

International Orders - You will be charged the actual shipping charges for your order. This can vary based on distance and weight. We'll find the best option and contact you to verify the order info and get your "Okay" on charges before shipping. Please provide a phone number and email for this purpose. Orders will not ship without verification and approval. Once you give your approval of shipping charges, we will reauthorize your payment for the appropriate amount.

Free Shipping - Free shipping applies only to ground shipments of normal size and weight. Oversized products, and on occasion, exceptionally heavy products may incur a larger shipping fee. Free Shipping only applies to one destination per order. If you are having your order shipped split between different locations you will only get free shipping on the closest destination.

Oversized Items - In most cases, oversized items will be noted on the product page with a truck icon. These are items that are larger than UPS standard freight sizes, and may have to go via another method. In all cases, we will do our best to find the best price on getting these items to you and notifiy you ahead of time. Shipments by truck are generally delivered to your curb or loading dock. If you have special circumstances that require indoor delivery, assembly or other concerns let us know and we'll work with you to sort it out. If you have a concern about a particular item you want to order, please contact us and we'll figure it out for you.

Gift Cards - Orders with only a giftcard on them will not be charged shipping. If a physical giftcard is needed, it will be sent out via priority mail.

Orders are generally processed within 3 business days. Shipping time after that is generally based on your proximity to our warehouse in southern California. See the map below for transit times.

Shipping Zones

Expedited or Rush Shipping - Expedited shipping options are available at additional cost. You will be charged the actual shipping rate. Please indicate how you'd like your order to go, or the day you need it to arrive, as well as a phone number in the special instructions upon checkout. We'll contact you to verify the costs and order information with you.

Shipping Restrictions - Aerosols will not be shipped outside of the continental U.S.A.. Although rare, some hazardous materials, such as some heavy solvents, may also have limitations on shipping. If you are local to the store we will get it to you under normal operation, if you are outside of Southern California we may need to contact you to figure it out. Either way, we will do our best to work with you on the delivery.

Out of Stock Items and Backorders
On occasion, we run out of an item. Generally that item will be in stock shortly, however, if it just so happens that an item is not available when you place your order, we will notify you. At that point we can either ship the rest of your order immediately and backorder the missing item, or we can hold the order and ship it complete. If an item is backordered, it will be shipped to you as soon as it becomes available, and at no additional shipping cost to you. We'll let you know when we expect the missing piece, and then it's your call.

School Accounts
If your school or you as a teacher purchase large quantities of art supplies and materials throughout the year, then there are ways we can help make your purchasing easier and more fruitful. In addition to offering net-30 accounts to make your purchasing easier, there is also an additional discount for accounts who pay on time. We can set up custom accounts with supply kits, special pricing, special delivery terms or probably anything else you need to make your job easier. For example, we've brought in materials that teachers weren't able to find elsewhere. We work with many schools and teachers on an open PO basis, allowing them to purchase their supplies when they need them throughout the year. In short, we want to work WITH you. Without the support of educators, we would be dead in the water, so let us know who you are because we want to make you happy.

Net-30 Accounts
If you have a Net-30 account with Art Supply Warehouse you may charge on the website just as you would in person or on the phone. Please contact us so we can ensure your website account is set up properly for you. You must sign in to charge an order to your account. Upon checkout you will see that all of your account information is already filled in, as well as fields for PO#'s and authorized purchasers if your account is set up to require them.

If you do not have a Net-30 account and would like to open one, please contact us and we'll be happy to get that process started for you.

We offer the ability to open a special wholesale account. If you are a retail reseller, let us know, perhaps we can help you. We can supply you with the art materials you need at a strong discount, in many cases better than most other distributors. Contact us and we'll give you the lowdown.
