Wholesale... and price increases

On another note, we have been figuring out wholesale pricing and policies. It is not something that we were planning to offer so soon, but we have received a few requests and decided to give it a go.

While researching this, it has become apparent that in order to be able to charge a wholesale price that would allow resellers to offer our stamps at the retail prices we charge, we will need to raise our retail prices.

It is something I've been thinking about for a while... Our current retail prices are a bit low, given the fact that our full stamp sheets are 8.5 x 11 inches or 9 x 12 inches, the deepest etch possible, and the result of original artwork (no clip art). The price changes will bring us more in line with other makers of original stamp designs.

We are still tabulating what the exact prices will be.

As far as timing goes, I expect that the new prices will take effect and appear on our sites within the next couple of weeks - possibly within the next few days. The adjustment won't be too severe, but anyone considering any stamp purchases could save a few dollars by making them sooner rather than later...
