Whatever you need in the way of inexpensive images, hard-to-find fonts, or
unusual project ideas, chances are it’s available online. To help you sort
through the clutter,
scoured the Web for useful — and unusual — art supplies that won’t break the bank. Here’s what we found.
This Web site is a creative person’s shopping heaven. It has everything from basic photo and transfer papers to more unusual choices such as ink-jet vellum paper and printable wood veneers. The site even offers ideas and directions for creative projects.
Another fabulous site for paper products, this catalogue includes greeting cards, canvas paper, sticker paper, and “Inky Shrinky” — the amazing clear film that shrinks when exposed to high heat (ah, the memories).
Here you can find labels of nearly any size, shape, or color you can imagine.
This site has a tremendous selection of display and text fonts, with frequent specials starting as low as $10. You can also track down that mystery font you saw in a magazine: just upload a scanned copy of the font, and the site will find the closest matches in its database.
Free clip art that’s actually attractive is rare on the Web, but this site has thousands of fun images, free for the taking. Choose from themes including holidays, animals, and sports.
Beautiful photos are a bargain for the home crafter here. Download images from the “personal use” collection for $3 each, or browse the extensive royalty-free gallery (prices start around $20).
