Free Shipping on paint brush orders of $100 and over


Paint Brush Corporation has instituted a new shipping policy on its website  Paint brush orders of $100 or over will now be shipped for free.  The new policy reflects the growing trend among online stores to offer free shipping on higher value purchases.  The new policy takes place immediately.

“Most of the large purchases on our website are from painting contractors,” said Doug Johnson, Vice President of Paint Brush Corporation.  “We wanted a way to offer additional value to contractors making large purchases.  Free shipping is how we chose to do it.”

Shipping charges for orders under $100 will be two-tiered.  Orders up to $50 will be shipped for $6.95.  Orders between $50 and $100 will ship for $7.95.

The art of mural painting

Luis De La Torre knows art.  Stroll through the virtual gallery on his elegantly designed website and you come away with a feeling of sheer talent – lots of it.


Mr. De La Torre is also generous.  He shares his talent with the students at Spry Community Links High School on the southwest side of Chicago, where he conducts painting workshops for students in the after school Art Club.  His latest project is a mural, painted by aspiring student artists.  Paint Brush Corporation was pleased to help with a donation of paint brushes for the student artists.

The school principal Francisco Borras approached Mr. De La Torre about painting a mural after seeing his work with the Art Club.  The idea was to give students education in painting techniques in a real-world setting.


“I organize these projects so that the young Artists can take the initiative with developing and producing the murals,” wrote Mr. De La Torre in an email.  “I find the students start taking ownership of the project and begin to believe that they are capable of painting and creating Art. This practice has led to students not only getting real experience at making Art but they also begin excelling in their academics.”

Congratulations to Mr. De La Torre and the students working on the project who include, Ruby Ramirez, Guadalupe Garcia, Sylvia P. Munoz, Alfredo Aquilar, Efren Anaya, Ashley Andrande, Hugo Minon and Eduardo Ruiz.

Community Paint-A-Thon

We are pleased once again this year to support the Community Paint-A-Thon sponsored by HandsOn Suburban Chicago .


For the past several years, Paint Brush Corporation has donated paint brushes to the Paint-A-Thon, which HandsOn describes as “a unique community partnership designed to paint the exterior of homes owned and occupied by persons with limited financial resources, who are at least 60 years of age or have a permanent disability making them unable to do the work themselves.” This year’s Paint-A-Thon is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, and covers 10 townships in the suburban Chicago area.

If you live in the Chicago area and want to participate, you can find out how on the HandsOn website.

Update:  Chicago-area painting contractors if you've volunteered for Paint-A-Thon let us know -- send us an email, and we will send you a free paint brush to use.  That's our way of thanking you for donating your time and skills.  (No seconds, we make only one grade . . . the very best.)
