Price Change Notification

To our valued customers,

In addition to soaring paper, polypropylene and polyester costs, the war in Ukraine is now affecting the price of steel. Unfortunately, this has immediate effect. Due to the cost of fuel, freight costs have risen astronomically, putting pressure on all costs. Although we do not plan on adding a fuel surcharge across the board, we reserve the right to add a fuel surcharge on any prepaid shipping orders where necessary. Please speak to your Cabot sales representative with any concerns. Delivery time issues continue with several suppliers - please plan ahead and order early to avoid delays. Thank you for your patience.
