A Comprehensive List of Online Art Supply Stores in Canada

To make art with alcohol ink, one of the first things you'll need is...ink. Well you're in luck because I have found a ton of Canadian art and craft supply stores that sell alcohol ink online and I've put them all together in one blog post for you!


Because alcohol ink is considered a hazardous substance (if you would like to know more about this I happen to have a post here all about that), there are usually shipping restrictions on it. Most retailers will not ship the inks across the border which is why I'm only focusing on Canadian stores.


Disclaimer: I am not associated with, nor am I being compensated by any of the companies on this list for mentioning them. I have ordered from some of these stores but not all, so I can't speak to the delivery times or customer service. This is not a review of the sites but a list of resources. All of the information I have included is correct to the best of my knowledge at the time of publication but may be subject to change.



What Are The Different Brands of Alcohol Ink?


If you're just starting out with alcohol ink and don't know the much about the different ink brands, I've put together a handy dandy infographic to refer to:

Where is Alcohol Ink Available Online in Canada?


This is meant to be a quick overview of the stores, not an in-depth review of all the products they carry. As such, I have given a quick overview of the main products, but have not listed every single one. I tried to make sure I included the major brands they carry, the most popular substrates, and information about shipping if it was available. You can click on the store names to go directly to the individual websites.

Amazon


You can find almost anything on Amazon but I’m not going to get into specifics, mostly because they often have the highest prices and I prefer to support small retailers.


Final Thoughts
