Prices Fluctuate

All prices are subject to change without notice.

Prices shown in the shopping cart reflect pricing at the time items are placed into the cart. In some rare cases, prices may have changed between placing an item into your cart and the actual placement of the order. Final pricing will be shown at the Payment step of the check-out process.

We reserve the right to correct typographical errors. In regard to published prices in catalogs, we will try to absorb most cost increases from our suppliers; but if the increase is excessive, we will notify you and ask for your authorization to ship at the new price. Due to volatility in the paper and petroleum world markets, it may be necessary to increase pricing on paper and plastic items at any time. In addition, if product-specific trade tariffs or duties are imposed, we may have to pass along those charges as well.

Prices and selection vary between this website, our catalogs, and our retail stores, and by store location.
