About Us

We have been serving the UK's design and arts communities since 1973. Trends are constantly changing in the ever-growing art and design world and we take pride in moving with those trends.

Our reputation has been built on our ability to uphold quality whilst supplying our customers with a diverse range of products. We aim to provide inspiration and are always here to help our customers with their creative needs.

Times may have changed, but our essential values haven't. What we do, why we do it and who we do it for has remained the same for over 45 years.

We make exploring, discovering and buying the best creative supplies and design-led stationery easy for professionals, hobbyists and students. And we make it a pleasure because we all share your passion.

Graphic designers, architects, artists, fashionistas, enthusiasts and students love us because we understand exactly what they need. We try our hardest to ensure we have the tools that spark their creativity. With an expert team of staff to help with any query, we can assist our customers with whatever they need.

In the heart of Covent Garden lies our Aladdin's Cave of tools and materials for the art and design community. Our unparalleled range stocks the best there is from across the globe: from valuable specialist items that are otherwise hard to come by to great value, everyday essentials at a price that's hard to beat.

Our online store mirrors our retail space. Together with the flexibility to shop online as well as in-store, we are able to connect with the wider artistic community across the UK (and beyond). We'll deliver same-day to London, next-day across the UK and to most overseas locations. You can also click and collect from our flagship store. In November 2016 London Graphic Centre was acquired by the Theo Paphitis Retail Group, comprising Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue as part of a network of over 350 stores and 4,000 employees who serve over 28 million customers a year.

We are much more than a shop; we're a part of the community we serve, with many of our team being artists themselves. Our own brand products are lovingly created to offer exactly what you tell us you need. And our own in-house team of experts are always on hand to take feedback and give advice.
