I see on FB you mention that orders in the US will now be cheaper and faster since they will ship from the USA.

Can you explain in more detail?

Does this go for every material? If not, which ones?

I am VERY excited about this. Smile

Sorry guys for the tease.

Shipping of WSF is now down from 10 days to 8 days, other materials you should notice a reduction too.

At the moment it is cheaper in the US as there is ZERO import duties and UPS fees, this is especially for larger orders that went (randomly) over the customs import threshold.

For you guys now it is designed and manufactured in the USA!!!

We WILL push the prices per cm3 down as soon as we can.

My personal apologies for the confusion

Thanks

@cadalu Even though we can't implement it immediately, you can bet we're thinking about it. Smile

Are there any plans for a Canadian distribution center or will those members just over the US border see a cost reduction in any way?

Luckily ill benefit either way Smile

actually if they ship ups ground from us to Canada you will see the cost go up Sad maybe USPS to Canada as an option? distribution center would be better though.

Quick question, in "my orders" section it shows "Shipped dc ny," does this mean it's manufactured in the Netherlands and shipped to NY, and then after it's reshipped in NY, I'll receive a UPS tracking number?

From the above quote - "For you guys now it is designed and manufactured in the USA!!!" I thought products were also manufactured in the US, but the people chatting today talked about everything still coming from the Netherlands. Just for curiosity's sake, is any material printed in the US?
