Amazing Art Studios


Originally, we went with another online booking company; however, the price was high. As we moved to adding a second location, we realized that we weren’t getting the value out of it.  Before we started looking for a new online booking solution, our first thought was to pinpoint why we even wanted to offer online booking. Was it to…
  • Make more money?
  • Keep track of bookings?
  • Cut down on staff time?
  • Add convenience for our customers?
All were important, but especially the latter. PlaceFull helped us achieve all four. We understand that people are busy and want to book when it’s convenient for them. We charge a $75.00 deposit for all parties booked, then collect the remainder on the day. While many of our customers still call us to ask questions about classes, camps, birthday parties, etc., we mention that they can book all of our activities directly on our website or Facebook page. Why is this great? It’s easier for them and they don’t have to call us back to book. Additionally, online booking saves us time. Best part, I am now open for business 24/7 and get bookings in my sleep. 
The staff at PlaceFull have been AMAZING. They answer all of my questions, are always asking for feedback, and do a great job of keeping me in the loop on new features.

Amazing Art Studio – A Brief History

We began with humble beginnings, when in September 2000, we took over a small plaster painting store named Plaster, Paint & Party.  The first store was located in a small warehouse in Gaithersburg, Maryland. As our business and reputation grew, we knew that we needed a bigger and better location along with more choices for our customers. The Amazing Art Studio came into existence in November 2003.  We added paint your own pottery, glass fusing, and mosaics to our amazing selections. As our 10th anniversary as the Amazing Art Studio, Inc. approached, we opened our second location in White Flint Plaza. Although our Rio store closed, we will be returning to the Gaithersburg area in late Spring 2014.

We feel fortunate to have helped create so many memories for our customer’s. We look forward to many more years with our current customers and helping new customers spend creative time with family and friends.
