Testimonials From YELP & Google
I love, love, love this place, and used to frequent it like I had a compulsion. It probably has something to do with the fact that I'm an art school student and I find basking in supplies a comforting experience. That being said, not only do they stock a nicer variety of goods than the average Blick or Utrecht, but also they sell weird little plastic objects for under a $1. I have a couple of tiny plastic cows and babies as a result. ~ Helen I
The customer service was exquisite, only two employees were working at the time of my first visit, both seemed busy however they still managed to greet me with a friendly attitude when I arrived, letting me know that they could answer any questions I had. When I did ask a question, the employee I asked took me directly to what I was looking for. The checkout also flowed very smooth. My experiences there bring me back again and again. ~ Ethan J
I fell in love with this place so hard that i created a Yelp account just to add to their already glowing reviews. That's how much I love these guys.
But anyways. I came to A&C Berkeley to see if I can find papers for my wedding invitation. What was intended to be a quick browse turned into an hour-long brainstorm session as the super-friendly, super-knowledgeable manager walked me through all the stuff that they have that may be of use to me. I walked out with a priced quote in hand and a few samples. I had been back a couple of times since, both to make purchases and again pick Sarah's (the manager) brain in terms of design and prices.
What I'd like to point out here is the fact that these guys will take all the time in the world to help you with your need, provide you with invaluable information and ideas, and even repeatedly direct you to other stores/suppliers if they happen to not have what you need. And their prices are hard to beat, even when comparing against giant chains like Michael's or JoAnn. Oh, and did I mention they're super friendly, too? Sarah will probably wind up as a guest on my wedding invitation list...
Thanks A&C! Will definitely be checking out your store first for all my crafts need!!! ~ Shobi L
Very nice array of canvases. There's a student discount too, or at least...the last time I went, almost 1.5 years ago. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable, as the other reviewers mentioned, and will gladly help you find what you're looking for. ~ Karen W
