Head’s Up — 2016 Price Changes

It’s that time of year again, when manufacturers re-assess their costs and pass on any necessary price increases forward. We do have some increases to report, as well as some decreases — all effective on January 1, 2016. We wanted to give you a head’s up in case you were thinking about purchasing any of these items.

If you don’t see an item listed here, then it isn’t changing price, or at least not in January. As for the following, you may see some variances in what other retailers charge for these products. We can only speak to our prices.

Price Increases:

Parker:

Pilot:

Waterman:

Price Decreases:

Clairefontaine:

G. Lalo:

J. Herbin:

  • Letter brass seals are going from $14 to $12 (we’ll adjust our wax seal package set accordingly, too)

Quo Vadis:

Rhodia:

We’ve definitely seen worse years as far as price increase go… this one doesn’t seem too bad.

On a side note, it’s really cool of companies like Exaclair (who distributes Clairefontaine, Rhodia, J. Herbin, G. Lalo, and Quo Vadis) to pass on price decreases to their retailers and customers, so major props to them.

Hope this information helped!
