In the face of rising costs and current conditions in Japan, Copic manufacture/U.S. distributor have no other option but to reflect these price increases on all Copic markers and inks (on all Copic e-retailer). It is an action they have tried to avoid but are unable to. This price increase is effective August 1st and we encourage you all to stock up on your supply before prices are changed (an estimate of 8-10% increase).
In addition to this change, we must also address international shipping restrictions. In compliance with the Copic manufacturer, Too Corporation, we cannot ship the Copic product line outside of the United States and Canada with the exception of the island of Oahu. If you are one of our valued international customers, you may provide a shipping address in the United States via friend or freight forwarder and all international Gold Members will receive free shipping on orders over $50.00.
If you need clarification, as always, please contact us directly and we will be happy to assist you further.
