Thank you for your continued patronage of Tombow Pencil products.
As the title suggests, Tombow will revise the suggested retail prices of pencils and colored pencils effective October 1, 2022.
Background factors for this action include soaring prices of major raw and packaging materials as well as rising energy and logistics costs. While Tombow has continued efforts to maintain prices for about 30 years (except for some products), having reached the limit there is no alternative but to revise the prices of the products listed below.
Tombow will continue to strive to reduce costs and provide valuable products. Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
