Rex Art was recently featured in ArtId’s featured blog:
Here at ArtId we have made a commitment to accept advertising, from eco friendly art suppliers, only. Companies that are making a difference in their everyday business practices deserve our support. When members log in there is a link to Rex Art Supplies one of our environmentally responsible partners. So what is Rex Art all about?
Katrina Morris, Director of Internet Marketing, states, “Here at Rex Art we do our best to be green. Our offices and warehouse are painted with low VOC paint, we use non-toxic cleaning products and we recycle shipping boxes and packing material. We’ve installed efficient lighting fixtures throughout our facility and programmed our thermostats so that we use less energy. We even made sure our desks were certified to have less of an impact on the environment throughout their lifecycle.”
April 1950 gave birth to a new small business, in Coral Gables FL, Rex Artist Supplies. In 1995 Rex Art was the first on-line provider of art supplies. Family owned and operated for four generations, Rex Art understands the importance of customer service and personal attention; this, combined with high quality art supplies, and a commitment to using less energy, makes Rex Art a leader in the industry. It has been very difficult for us to find art supply companies that are also earth friendly in their business model, or produce a truly nontoxic product. Art materials have historically and consistently ranked very high in toxicity and posed a real danger to the artist and the earth, now is as good a time as any to start buying green supplies from green companies and demanding more companies rethink their business practices.
Equally important with eco friendliness and quality products is customer service. Katrina added, “When you shop at Rex Art you get 21st century convenience with old fashioned, knowledgeable, fast and friendly service. We are not as big as some of the huge art supply providers, but quite often we offer pricing that is just as good as the big guys and we have better free freight deals. Customers can feel really good about shopping at Rex Art because there is a real family working here. Art supplies are our lives, as they have been in our family going on 4 generations! We care very much about our customer’s needs, and want to make sure we can do our best to fulfill them. Our main goal is to provide personal service, something that is often lacking online.” They also have a Special Order service should you want something they don’t usually carry.
