How are the pigments packed?

 All our pigments are packed in bags. Our business model is to offer the best pricing and free shipping on orders over $10 within the US.

Jars increase the price to our customers for several reasons.

1.The cost of the jar plus the shipping and storage of jar. If our product were packed in jars in would require significantly more Warehouse space to store our product. 

2. Jars break and crack. This would require your order to be upgraded to a box. We would not be able to use first class shipping or flat rate padded envelopes. Both these options help us offer free shipping to you.

3. Jars increase the weight of your order. More weight plus more volume = higher shipping rates and higher product costs for our customers.

If you want to transfer your pigments into jars, here are some jar suppliers that we feel have good service and pricing.
