Last year we managed to maintain our pricing — in some cases we were able to reduce the costs of some of our papers — this year is a little different. Due to the Brexit referendum and the resulting instability of the pound against other currencies, many of our suppliers have increased their pricing, some as high as 15%. We won’t be passing on increases as high as this, our print prices have increased between 5% and 8% depending on the paper group, with canvas remaining at last year’s price. Framing has also remained the same and prices for mounting have only had small increases to a few specific sizes.
Delivery costs have also had to increase, but this has given us the opportunity to restructure the way we calculate delivery costs and we believe we have created a system that is simpler and farer, especially for those ordering larger quantities and for those passing on delivery costs to your own customers for drop shipping.
Delivery prices are now based on the size of the print ordered and will no longer increase with the total cost of your invoice, instead the cost will remain the same for multiple quantities of the same product ordered. For example, delivery to a UK address of an A3 print will cost £4.20, this cost will remain the same whether you order 1 print or 10 prints.
