Price Increase Coming in 2018

PLEASE BE ADVISED:

For the past seven years, Garage Kits.US Colors (www.garagekitsuscolors.com) has absorbed all cost increases (i.e., fuel, raw materials, packaging, advertising, labor etc.) to make and sell our products.   Unfortunately, we have finally reached a point where we can no longer continue to do so and keep our products at the top quality that our clients have come to expect from us.

Therefore, as of JANUARY 1, 2018, there will be a price increase on our paint line, from $4.50 per 1 ounce bottle to $4.95 per bottle.  In addition, we are currently restructuring the cost of the Paint Sets to reflect this change and will disseminate this information once it has been finalized.

If we had this to do over again, we would probably have done a 5% increase some years ago, and another this year, but as they say, “hindsight is 20/20.” While we realize that a 10% increase at once is significant, please remember this has been our only increase in the entire time we have been in business.

Basically, it is a choice between price, or quality and to us that is simply not a choice.

We will not reduce the quality of our products nor stop looking for ways to respond to the needs of the hobby (e.g., new Enterprise line, and the upcoming Star Wars colors, etc.)!
