The price of ACM panels is going up

I just got a notice from my supplier of ACM panels that all the brands that are made in China which includes Moncor, M-Panel, E-Panel (Dibond's budget line) and many others brands out there will be going up at least 25% on or before January 1 due to the Chinese trade tariffs. You might want to check with your sources to see what they have to say about the increase. I doubt they are going to absorb a 25% increase and keep their prices the same.

You may want to stock up now. I plan on buying at least a years worth if I can come up with the funds.

PLEASE don't turn this into a political debate! I don't want to see ANY of it, regardless of which side you are on. Take the politics to the forums that are set aside for it. Thanks!

Re: The price of ACM panels is going up

The January 1st, 2019 25% tariff on Chinese imports has been postponed for 90 days. I don't know exactly what art supplies it currently impacts other than some brands of ACM panels which took a price hike a few months ago when the 10% tariff went into place a few months ago. It will remain at the current 10% level for now.

Re: The price of ACM panels is going up

Contumacious - Thank you for posting these. I read your first post, and thought that it was likely that some supplies I use which are made in China would go up in price. I then ordered a few panels to get me through a year or so. Even if the prices do not go up, it was still a good decision as I am certain to use the panels sooner or later. As my retirement looms I am becoming more conscious of costs $$$. Deb in Arizona

Deb - you are welcome. I wish I had ordered before the 10% increase. I had no clue it was even coming at the time. I was working on a large order but did not place it in time. I definitely won't miss getting some more panels if / when the 25% increase is on the horizon.
