A: Great question! When we were looking at suppliers, it helped us answer a lot of questions ourselves as to the outrageous prices that we saw dominate the market thus far. As one of our core values is to deliver the greatest value possible, we decided to go with International Manufacturers because for the same quality, the price was about 75% less expensive and we wanted to pass those savings onto our customers.
Surprisingly, we also found that it cost almost $40 more to ship a framed canvas within the US, then from various countries to the US, and we thought that as a customer, you would rather invest that money into the actual product, as opposed to the logistics of it.
If you feel strongly about this as we understand some people do, you are more than welcome to contact us and we can get you a custom quote from one of our US suppliers.
