    UPDATE – Seems a lack of experience among some of the staff/interns.
    Yesterday I visited Overjoyed looking for Pen Case . I approached one lady working there who was near to ask if the case which is present in show room is PenCase and she told that I do not know and she started her work.
    I again approached her stating who can confirm since there is no one ?
    I got a drastic reply – What do you mean ?
    I am very surprised by the high voice I heard.
    Then I rephrased that I need someone to help me and then she called someone to help.
    Really worst experience till date.
    If they are your interns – I am sorry they need to be trained.
    And another thing – I saw the reply of Overjoyed in some of the post- stating approach the experienced staff but how come a customer will differentiate between both.
    TWO WEEKS AGO – Frankly speaking this is a great shop -giving 10% discount to everyone but below is the point -once you keep on coming to this shop just like me who is a Pen lover who is always looking for something new and eager to buy- they will start ignoring you. New Staff are good and helpful but someone keep following them crossing across you seems very uncomfortable. They even say the person to move to the counter leaving you unattended in the middle. This was surprising and uncomfortable.Hopefully Overjoyed Management take this comment in positive way and try to improve .
    I really want to give them 5 stars but I believe customer service is really important .
    Deducting two point – for in store customer service experience.
    Deducting one point – for their Online store which usually is not updated with new stuff. Even I cannot see Sailor pens which I can see in store.
    Giving 2 points for 10% discount and good rate and wonderful store and nice email support

    Great little art store with a wide variety of products. They even have a separate corner for calligraphy materials and fountain pens. Staff are friendly and helpful, and their website is very helpful too when checking if they stock certain products. If you can’t find some art materials at other shops in Singapore, chances are you may be able to find it here.

    This art and craft shop was a little hard to find but looks like treasure trove for those interested in calligraphy. They have so many fountain pens, inks and brushes! I went for the watercolours but they only have 3 brands, one by Shinhan and the other two are premium artists brands I haven’t seen elsewhere.

    The staff who served me was friendly and knowledgeable about the products.

    There is a small section of children’s crafts products on the “second” floor via a small staircase.

    This is the best place to get your art needs. They have nearly everything. They have good variety of fountain pens and inks here. Including paper supplies for writings all the way to drawings. Art supplies such as brushes, paints and accessories can be found here too.

    The shop is bigger than what they had in the older location. If Cathay is too far for you, you can shop online on their website. I would recommend to drop by the store instead for the best shopping experience. You get to window shop a lot of things.

    Awesome place!

    I’ve purchased most of my craft goods from overjoyed since 2014. The store has an immense array of art materials and impeccable customer service that ensures I leave with the materials I need as well as a full heart. As a calligrapher, it is my one-stop shop for calligraphy supplies and materials and the online platform expedites the buying process as I am able to check the prices online before I make my trip to the store.

    So many great things about this company:

    1. Amazing service – I placed an order with Elizabeth over email, and she was incredibly responsive, accommodating, and helpful. She was quick to edit the quotation when I changed my mind multiple times, and provided suggestions on various materials. She even helped organise a very quick and convenient exchange of some products that arrived slightly aged.
    2. Wide range of products – many high-end and niche brands. Not as extensive as other suppliers, but they have a few ranges which are hard to find elsewhere.
    3. Great website – their entire catalogue is online
    4. Beautiful physical store – well laid out, roomy and easy to move around in
    5. Constantly changing workshops, promotions, new products, etc.

    Really glad to see this great competitor to Art Friend and Straits Art in the art supply space!

I mainly got in to purchase the Molotow products cause they are the only ones who carry it in Singapore. One of the best spray paints in the graffiti world out there. There was a time where an item I requested was not on the shelf and when I asked the staff they went to their store area to get it for me. Thanks alot Overjoyed, it has always been a joy shopping at your store. Never once been disappointed or came out of the store empty handed.

    I bought from them many times and each time, their online support have been excellent – staff is friendly and helpful! They also ship quickly and my order usually 1-2 days later. Great service – I will continue to buy from them. One improvement to suggest is to keep their inventory stock count accurate.

    I was quite disappointed with their nib variety as they hold mostly manuscript and speedball nibs and don’t have other popular options(Brause,Nikko G,Zebra G,Leonardt Principal..etc)

    The only oblique nib holder I could find was also a plastic speedball one

    And finally,…the Finetecs

    Some of the more popular colours were not available(Rose Gold, Inca Gold,Midnight Blue…etc) and they are definitely quite pricey at $6.90 a piece.
    Tip:You can get Finetecs at $6 a piece at Straits Art

    Overall not so satisfied with the stores dip pen calligraphy supplies but if that’s not what you’re looking for,this is a relatively good art supply store

    UPDATE: I checked out their online store and was impressed by how comprehensive it was compared to Art Friend (which only shows a fraction of their stock). This made it easier to do price and brand comparison beforehand before going to the store to pick out the items in person. Upon this visit, staff were very friendly answering my queries. However, signage on sales was still not fantastic as there were sales indicated on the website for some brands (e.g. ESCODA) which were not posted in the store, although they still applied at checkout. This could be confusing to customers and should be improved. Upgraded from 3 to 4 star.

    Original review:
    Only been there once but experience was not fantastic. Layout is not very conducive to people wanting to price shop because layout is mainly by brand rather than type of item, which means you need to walk back and forth between many areas of the shop to do comparisons of a single item (e.g. Paint). Prefer layouts like art friend, which puts all the items related to a specific type of art/craft together (e.g. All the papers, all the acrylic paints etc) to make it easier to compare. Also tried to take advantage of an offer advertised on a sign put up in the shop only to be told at the cashier that the deal had expired – think it would have been fairly easy for them to take down the paper sign instead of misleading customers.

    An update
    I’ve made an impromptu trip to overjoyed today and was very glad by their service. Perhaps when I was there the previous time, they were really busy. Anyway, this young lady who is very cheerful offered me different options when the item I wanted was out of stock. I left the shop happily with the art graf set. To be honest, they do carry alot of unique stuffs that are hard to find elsewhere.

    Thank you himika! (I assumed, cause it’s on the receipt)

    Wish I could have said the same as everyone here but it wasn’t a good experience for me. I was asking if I could see the sample of two watercolor sketchbook cause it was all wrapped up nicely. So I approached one of the staff and politely asked for it. She told me that the sample books are on the shelves and I’ve already searched high and low at every shelves but I couldn’t find it. So she went to find it for me but she couldn’t find it either. She didn’t want to unwrap it for me to check on the paper quality. I asked if it’s cellulose or 100 percent cotton since she is reluctant to show me the content. She took the book and went to scan it and replied me not 100 percent cotton and walked away. Initially, I was so excited to purchase a watercolor sketchbook as they have huge variety as compared to art friend. But I left the shop without buying anything as I was shock by the service. I should just stay with art friend for good.

I am frequent patron of the store and I am glad they are making changes to the opening hours, so non-students like me can shop at the place after work on weekdays. Hopefully, they can and will continue to bring in new brands to introduce to art and craft lovers like me.

    Super easy to get here from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station, Exit A. Just across the street at the shopping center called The Cathay you’ll find this wonderful shop at level B-1.
    The store is full of the art supplies you’d expect, such as paints, brushes, different types of paper, canvas, wood and even pre-made papier mache figures. They’ve also got pens, markers, notebooks, scrapbooking supplies, cutting tools, drafting or artist’s templates (similar to protractor for drawing shapes, curves, corners). Really too much to list. This is just some of what I saw as I was really only going in to look at ink pens. I have my favorite brand (Sarasa) and cannot accept substitutes.
    Anyway, I was surprised to also see kits for children to do really fun art projects. The kits would be good for any age.
    In addition, this shop offers art classes on different subjects with different mediums. It is genuinely a one-stop creativity mart.
    Especially nice: handicap accessible, wide aisles, helpful employees and a membership/loyalty program that offers discounts.

    The atmosphere fits the name, I was Overjoyed to be able to patronize the establishment and they are always fully stocked on anything art and more. I truly never expected it to be so big. For those who need art materials, this is the place for you. In addition, the staff when free will help you with all of your needs. That is why I am giving it a five star. The staff, the environment and the sheer amount of art supplies the they have.

    The only down side is that they close too early closing at 7pm is a little early and 4 pm during weekends is way too early. I wanted to go today to buy something but it is a little too late now.

    If you are on a hunt for a fountain pen shop in Singapore, this is the BEST place to visit. Overjoyed is a hidden gem! They have a whole different room (separate from their arts and crafts store but in the same area) dedicated to fountain pens, inks, papers and pen cases! They carry a lot of brands like Diplomat, Kaweco, TWSBI, Visconti, Aurora, Lamy, Pelikan and lots more; they have a good selection of the different models, and the staff are very helpful and friendly! Shout out to Mathu for all the help she’s extended to us in checking if they have a stock for the Pelikan pen with the correct nib my husband wanted! Thank you Mathu! ️

    You can sign up as a member (check out the picture!) to get 10% discount on all your purchases. The price is definitely the most affordable we’ve seen around, and that is BEFORE applying the member discount! This is a really awesome fountain pen shop, one that should not be missed while in Singapore.
