Don't Wait To Order. Prices Increase In The Next Few Days.
We hate to do this, but here's why:
Over the last two years the global economy has faced various shocks – shortages of labor, materials, and services have created bottlenecks and increased costs in every area. For Origami Paddler specifically, we’ve experienced large increases in the cost of our materials and especially with shipping, for example, the cost of shipping containers from Asia to the U.S. has tripled this year alone. These changes have made running the business extremely challenging and we now find it necessary to make appropriate price adjustments earlier than originally planned, and wanted to let you know why.
We know we are still priced lower than we could be because of the convenience and flexibility of the Paddlers. Being easy to store and transport, and being both a Stand Up Paddleboard and Kayak (two boats in one!) has been a real hit with our customers. We plan to continue to raise our prices gradually over the next several months as we get closer to shipping from inventory. So even though the prices are a little higher today than they were a few weeks ago, they are much lower than they will be in the months to come, and we encourage you to place your order today to ensure the lowest price possible.
Thanks for your understanding and for being a member of the Origami Paddler Family! We appreciate you!
