SnC ANNOUNCEMENT: Tsukineko Price Increase

To all our valued supporters,

Throughout the last 10 years of us running, we have been fortunate and blessed to have so much support from the crafting community in Malaysia. We work hard to keep our prices low so that the mass market can share our love for the craft and today, we thank you for we will not be here if not for you.

However, while we have tried our very best to absorb higher costs of doing business over the past years, due to our dwindling currency (and no recent strengths are not permanent) and with company manufacturing costs going up, Tsukineko has informed us that it is necessary for them to increase their selling price to us. 

As such, the prices of all Tsukineko range of ink pads and products will rise slightly by the end of next week. We believe by Tsukineko increasing retail selling price, they are able to maintain the superior quality that they have always maintained since the start of business. Sometimes, in crafting, when you spend a substantial amount of time crafting, it should only be evident that you use the best quality of crafting products for creating memories are meant to be archived for years to come.

We hope, the price increases do not deter you in continuing your support for the craft or for We look forward to seeing you and we appreciate your business.

Thank you!

Sincerely, Valerie
