As you may be aware, the United States Government has increased tariffs imposed on all imports from China from 10% to 25%. We have carried this increase for now, however it would be impossible for Expand to fully absorb this increase in the long run. While we hope the trade dispute will soon end, we want to give plenty of time in announcing a potential increase in our temporary tariff fee.
To help offset some of this tariff increase, we will be applying a 12% temporary tariff fee on all display hardware and kits. The 12% tariff surcharge will be effective for orders placed on or after August 1st, 2019 until further notice. Please note that if a trade deal is made before then, lowering or eliminating tariffs, we will adjust accordingly.
Graphic only orders are not subject to the temporary tariff fee, even though they often contain imported print media. In an effort to mitigate a small portion of the financial strain this temporary tariff fee may bring our valuable partners, we have lowered the price on almost 500 specific graphics.
Thank you for understanding.
