Raw Materials Art Supplies carries over 12,000 items in-store and can arrange the special order of nearly 50,000 different items.

Our store is located in downtown Los Angeles, but are able to ship nationwide including the APO/FPO/DPO addresses. (Sorry, we don’t ship internationally.)

Avoid shipping and handling charges by picking up your order at our store. We will contact you when your items are ready to be picked up at the store. For in-stock items, that will be within an hour, and for special order items it usually only takes two to seven business days. (Some special orders can take longer, you can always contact us to check.)

If you are located in our local delivery area (see map), we offer same-day delivery through our partners at PDQ Courier. We will contact them when your order is ready, and they will dispatch one of their bike couriers to pick up and deliver your order – and they have cargo bikes that can handle almost anything!

Orders for outside of our local delivery area are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, UPS Ground, FedEx Ground, or other carriers. Most orders for in-stock items will ship the same or next business day, and most special orders ship within two to seven business days. We will contact you if we anticipate a delay in shipping your items.
