This announcement just appeared on the Blick site:
We are getting a lot of great feedback from all of our customers that heard of our new business relationship with Utrecht. For us and for our customers, this is very exciting news. However, actual changes made to our businesses will take some time and a lot of hard work by our staff. To answer some of your questions:
Utrecht Brand Products: Utrecht paints have been manufactured in the same Brooklyn facility for over sixty years. Their paints and gessoes are among the premier professional grade media offered in world. This tradition will continue, and as soon as practicable, Utrecht paints will be available in BLICK stores.
Blick Selection: BLICK’S overall and broader array of products, when practicable, will also begin appearing in Utrecht stores, many of which will eventually carry BLICK signage, as their breadth of product expands to BLICK’S standards.
Please be patient with us and our staff, as we bring the best of both companies together to provide with the best possible tools for your inspirations. Should you have further questions, please feel free to forward them to:
