Yes, you read the title correctly! Rex Art has put together a factory direct promotion on tons of styles of high quality Prat presentation products at a savings of at least 50% to 80% off list prices. There is an amazing selection of beautiful Prat products that range from Presentation Cases, Scrapbooks, Binders, Spiral Books, and more! These are not seconds, or defective products, but simply Prat items that are being phased out. We have arranged this special promotion to be offered exclusively to our customers. Since these are products that are being discontinued this promotion is only while supplies last. We launched the Prat Blowout Promotion last week and since that time some styles have already sold out. If you see something you like or have been watching please do not delay in placing your order ASAP because once its gone it will be gone for good. We will do our best to keep the current products that are available up to date on our site.

One of my favorites is the striking Prat Preference Presentation Case, and features a sleek, modern and functional design.

I am actually quite sorry that they are doing away with it because I think it is one of the best cases Prat has ever produced. Normally we sell the Prat Preference at a very good discount of 40% off, but with the blowout promotion we are offering all the sizes while they last at 56% off!

If you are looking for fashionable French made scrapbooks look no further than the Prat Viva Scrapbooks and priced between $6.40 and $8.00 at 78% off they would make a great holiday gift at an amazing value!

New DR Acrylic Gesso from Daler Rowney available at Rex at a Great Price!

We would like to let you know about the addition of the DR Acrylic Gesso from Daler Rowney now available at Rex. We are very excited about this new addition to the extremely popular DR paint line from Daler Rowney, which offers exceptional value for the everyday artist. The Daler-Rowney Gesso has been formulated for use as a ground for both oil and acrylic paintings. It provides great coverage at a fantastic price and comes in a convenient stack-able and resealable rectangular container.

Rex Art Presents the new DR Acrylic from Daler Rowney

Rex Art Presents the new DR Acrylic from Daler Rowney

One of the features we really like about the DR Gesso, and DR line in general is that they are manufactured in the UK just like all the other Daler Rowney paints. Many other manufacturers cut the costs of their gessos by producing them in less quality focused manufacturing locations, and we have found most of these products to be of lessor quality and consistency. But best of all, and what you always expect from Rex, is our commitment to save you money, and the new DR gesso is extremely affordable. It is available in a one liter size (33.8 oz), currently on sale for $8.95, and also a 1 gallon size (128oz), currently on sale for only $21.95. When compared to similar products from other manufacturers it is far more affordably priced and generally 30% to 50% lower in price! Go to our main Gesso page and compare for yourself! We are positive that you are going to really appreciate the value and quality of the new DR Gesso, and we would love to hear about your experiences with this new fantastic product from Daler Rowney. Please post your comments here, or write a review! As always our family at Rex thanks you for your support!
