Price Increase: TOHO Seed Beads

Dear Customer,

In 2015, TOHO BEADS Co of Japan increased their factory prices due to rising production costs. At that time Starman did not adjust our wholesale prices due to the strong dollar vs yen currency. Unfortunately, the currency trends reversed this year, and we found it necessary to adjust prices for TOHO seed beads.

On September 1st all TOHO seed bead prices will increase by 10% with the exception of the new Demi Round line. Prices for seed beads packaged in tubes with MSRPs will not change at this time. Additionally, prices for TOHO One-G and Amiet thread will not change. All orders made prior to September 1st will be fulfilled at the current prices. Orders over $500 will still receive free domestic shipping.

We appreciate your ongoing confidence that we are working to keep prices as low as possible while offering the highest quality products and service. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve your TOHO bead needs.

Dave Starman,
CEO Starman Beads
