McClain’s gathers the highest quality relief printmaking supplies from around the world for creating woodcuts, engravings, linocuts and monotypes. Everyone who works at McClain’s is a printmaker and we are happy to answer any questions you have about supplies or printmaking techniques. We are here to help you and your students reach your printmaking goals.
In addition to payment by credit card, McClain’s accepts Purchase Orders from schools in the United States. We will need:
- 1) A Purchase Order or the Purchase Order number from your accounting or purchasing department
- 2) The Accounts Payable billing address for your school
- 3) The shipping address
Our terms are Net 30. Need a W9 tax form? Call or email orders [at] imcclains.com and we will send it right away.
While we do not offer a blanket school or student discount, we do offer quantity discounts on many supplies, such as tools, wood and paper. You can find the complete list at Volume Discounts.
Simple. Oregon does not have a sales tax so we never charge sales tax on any purchase.
If your accounting department needs a quote before issuing a Purchase Order, please either:
- 1) Email your supply list to us at orders [at] imcclains.com and request a quote; OR
- 2) Place your order online. In the shopping cart under “5. Payment Information,” choose “Payment Type: Purchase Order” and for the “Purchase Order Number” write “Quote.” You can also request that we send you a quote in the box marked “Special Instructions” on the second page of the shopping cart.
We will email (or fax if you prefer) the quote to you including volume discounts plus estimated shipping costs as soon as possible during our business hours, which are 10:00 to 5:00 Pacific Time, Monday through Friday.
If your students need to order their own supplies, you can coordinate a group order.
Call 800-832-4264 or email us at orders [at] imcclains.com and let us know that you plan to have your students place a group order. This is the information we need:
- 1) Your deadline for receiving the supplies
- 2) The number of students who will be placing orders
- 3) The list of the supplies the students will be ordering from McClain’s. Your complete supply list is often helpful in case students ask us questions.
- 4) The shipping address you want us to use
- 5) Tell your students that if they call us to place their order, they need to tell us your name and the name of the school. If they order online, they need to give us your name and the name of the school as the shipping address and also tell us they are in your class in the box marked “Special Instructions” on the second page of the shopping cart.
- 6) As a thank you, we will send either a FREE 20-piece Shina Grab Bag or a 20-piece ArtPrint Linoleum Grab Bag, your choice, so the students have practice pieces for testing their tools and techniques. Tell us which one you prefer.
Tip: Some teachers have their students order during class, passing a phone around until everyone has placed their order. This guarantees that everyone gets their order in on time and they all have the supplies they need for your class.
We will apply the appropriate volume discounts to their orders. The orders will be shipped together and the cost of shipping will be split evenly between the students, a BIG savings for them.
The order will be sent to the shipping address you give us by UPS. Shipping can take 7 to 10 days so please plan accordingly.
