Due to rising inflation, manufacturing & shipping costs around the world, the cost of materials & products is rising, often with no warning & with every new order. We never increase our prices unless our supplier increases their product pricing. Some price increases we can absorb, some we cannot. Prices are subject to change without notice. At this time we are not printing a catalog due to the constant changes.
The online catalog is always current. Thank you for understanding.
