Welcome to HYATT'S - All Things CreativeSM

Hyatt's - All Things Creative has been meeting the needs of visually creative people for more than 50 years. Headquartered in Buffalo, New York, USA, Hyatt's has earned a reputation as an innovative family owned company that has remained strong by growing to meet the evolving creative needs of our customers. The synergies between our closely linked product lines means that we are a superior source for artists, architects, signmakers and designers of many disciplines, thus our description: All Things Creative. Over forty employees are organized into three divisions: ART / Artist Supplies and Picture Framing, PANTONE / Color Matching System Products and SIGN / Computer Signmaking Equipment and Materials, to ensure that all customers receive knowledgeable assistance to execute their creative endeavors.

Gregory C. Hyatt, President, leads the ART and PANTONE operations while Peter W. Hyatt, Executive Vice-President, directs the SIGN division. Our 32,000 square foot Buffalo headquarters houses a retail store, warehouse facility, customer service center and administrative operations. Our other retail store is conveniently located in the Buffalo suburb of Clarence, New York. To support our SIGN customers, we have a New England warehouse in Wallingford, CT.

We have been able to differentiate our business by providing customers with the kind of personal experience they cannot get from mass merchants and mail order houses. As you move through the information we have provided online, you will discover that Hyatt's is small enough to give you personal service but large enough to supply what you need, when you need it, and save you money. Additionally, we encourage you to call us at 1-800-23-HYATT (234-9288) to tap into the expertise of our professional customer service staff who can give you solutions to individual questions. Our goal is to enable you to follow your creative pursuits.

HYATT'S / A Brief History
After many years in the graphic art industry, Charles W. Hyatt founded our company in 1959. He started in a 200 square foot store at 499 Franklin Street in Buffalo's Allentown Arts District. In 1961, he moved two blocks to Main Street and a 2500 square foot store at our current address. Surviving a devastating four-alarm fire in 1965, increased business encouraged him to stay, knock down walls and double our size. In 1981, we purchased the entire building. This location, 910 Main Street, continues today as our 32,000 square foot headquarters for all three divisions. Since 1988, Charles' sons, Peter and Gregory Hyatt, have owned the company where they have been active since the early 1970's.

ART / Art Supplies and Picture Framing
Hyatt's was originally founded to serve the printing and graphic arts industry, hence our corporate name: Hyatt's Graphic Supply Co., Inc. Very quickly, our growth led us into art supplies for fine artists and designers in many fields. Ever since, this has remained a major focus of our company. In addition to our large art store at 910 Main Street, a second store was opened in 1971 at 8565 Main Street in Clarence and continues to serve the Buffalo suburbs. Our custom picture framing department was greatly expanded at this time and remains an important part of our business. In 1984, we opened our third store, on East Avenue in Rochester. After 10 years, this store was moved to 937 Jefferson Road in Rochester. After substantial growth in our online sales servered from our Buffalo headquarters, we decided to close our Rochester location in spring of 2014. Together, our two Buffalo-area stores and customer service center make us the largest art material retailer between New York City and Chicago. We also serve customers nationally through our online store. In-store, telephone and online customers all know they can rely on the advice of our representatives who have extensive backgrounds in the arts and art products.

One of our special interests is support of art education programs, especially activities that are directed towards youth and beginning artists. We conduct in-store art classes and workshops throughout the year at all of our stores. During the summer, we offer camp programs that help develop talent and provide creative outlets for children between the ages of 5 and 12. Both stores also host popular birthday parties that meet parent's needs to entertain their children's friends in a meaningful way. Local and national art contest information is often available in our stores. We are pleased to be able to provide gift certificate awards for a number of local schools and private organizations that sponsor art competitions. And we work closely with art educators to ensure students have needed supplies at affordable prices. Many educators look to our staff for up-to-date information on techniques and product usage as well as information about innovative new products.

SIGN / Computer Signmaking Equipment and Materials
Since the digital revolution in signmaking was ignited by products made by the Gerber Scientific Products company in 1984, Hyatt's has been an important national distributor. In 2002, Gerber awarded recognition as Platinum Plus Partners to a hand full of their distributors who show exceptional knowledge of Gerber equipment, a commitment to customer education, a fully qualified staff and exceptional support for customers. Hyatt's is proud to be included in this select group. Our customers include traditional sign companies, quick sign retailers and in-house corporate and institutional sign departments.
