I have purchased art supplies from DickBlick for many years--first over the phone, then at a local company owned and operated store and most recently via the web. They are fantastic--very customer service oriented--top quality products--an unbelievable range of all things are (except stained glass)--and really knowledgeable. It doesn't get any better that this for art supplies.
These folks are in the business of setting up micro-financing to help folks all over the world who want to improve they lives by starting, expanding or improving a business, getting an education, improving their homes, etc. A very small added fee ($3.25) for a $25.00 loan is all the "Administration fee that doesn't go to the borrower. AS the borrower pays back the money you can re-lend it to another borrower, donate it to KIVA operations or have it refunded to you. Since there are many lenders whose money is pooled for the loan there risk is small. I have made over 125 loans over the past several years and only had a couple of defaults. This is a great way to help other help themselves--not a hand out by a helping hand that preserves the dignity of the folks receiving the help.
Randy's cartoons are hilarious some days and a cogent commentary on current conditions. He has thousands available on a wide variety of topics and they are reasonably priced when you buy in bulk. I have used them in training programs I create for many years and often get very favorable comments from participants about the truth and humor that they add. Randy is definitely a 7 on the 5 point scale.
I recently went to the site and entered a search term. I got 454 hits. AS I started to review the photos I saw that a SIGNIFICANT number 40 or more + had NOTHING to do with the search tern I had entered. When I sent a polite e-mail explaining what was happening I was told that if I wanted to spend my time explaining why each one of the errors was wrong they might consider removing the term-in-error. I sent another e-mail offering to talk to someone on the phone but explained that I did not have the time to correct their error. Basically I got blown off and they pointed out that their customer agreement clearly states that they have no responsibility for the accuracy of the information on their site. Their customer service was significantly better and their prices MUCH MORE REASONABLE before they got bought out by GETTY.
