Reduced Pricing and Discounts are Sometimes Available
Our Pricing and Discounts are Based Upon American Labor and Material Cost
We do not import or buy or resell any merchandise of any kind.
We are a Custom Manufacturer Selling Directly to Dealers
Many of our dealers are high-end custom home builders, commercial builders, as well as architects and interior designers. Many are selling only to total project customers and do not accept direct customers in their area.
In Areas Not Represented by Exclusive Dealers We Sell Individuals Direct at Dealer Prices
We also allow the same discounts if available to individual customers.
We Never Sell Retail or Inflate Prices on Order to then Discount Later and Create a Sale
Most retail stores mark most merchandise up to create the illusion of the urgency of a sale. Please do not confuse our discounts with this retail practice.
We Pass Manufacturing Process Savings On To You
These custom designer furnishings discounts are also available to qualified individuals in areas not dealer protected.
Pricing Policies (Discounts):
We Offer Discounts when You Pay by Cash, Check, or Wire Transfer.
If you are not using a credit card, and we are not charged processing fees associated with credit card use, you save.
We Offer Discounts when You Order More than One of the Same Item at the Same Time.
Our set up cost, labor and other related materials usually cost less on multiple processed items than a per item basis.
We offer "Production alike Deadline" Discounts.
When you order an exact item at the same time as someone else, you can qualify for this discount. The amount of this discount depends upon the number of items on order and their due dates, related to the date you order, because our set up cost, labor and other related materials usually cost less on multiple processed items than on a per item basis.
Example -- You order one chandelier the same item number and size as four other dealers/customers that also just ordered one each in the last ten days. This means we now have a total production of five to build at the same time, so if you get yours ordered in this time frame, you will receive the benefit of the multiple order discount - the same as if you had ordered five.
We offer "Similar Process" Discounts.
Discounts apply if you order the same item, or similar item, at the same time as someone else or with similar production lead times. The amount of this discount depends upon the number of items on order, how much is similar, and their production due dates. Our set up cost, labor and other related materials usually cost less on multiple processed items than on a per item basis.
Example -- You order 35 interior doors with the same ten-coat process and color as another order being processed at the same time. This means our curing rooms heat at the same time, using the same fuel as the other order. Color mixing time is the same, spraying times are cut over all, and hand rubbing time is cut significantly.
We offer "Extended Lead Time" Discounts.
These discounts are applied when you order early, with lots of lead time for the production process. The amount of this discount depends upon the number of items you order, how much is similar, and their production due dates, as well as the length of time required for production. This allows us additional time to couple similar items together at our pace to optimize our labor and processes.
Example -- You order all of your doors, windows, lighting and furniture 18 months prior to your required delivery dates. Each item is timed with your construction project needs, and allows for maximum saving.
We Sometimes Offer "Pre-Payment" Discounts.
All orders require fifty percent pre-payment, with final payment due pro-forma (completed and ready to ship) on our dock prior to shipping. Depending upon the size of your order and lead time requirements, it could be several weeks or months to pro-forma. The cost of this money is incurred by ArtFactory.com and factored into the cost of of each order, so if you prepay there are discounts available.

ArtFactory.com is a custom manufacturer with 100's of dealers world wide. When you order an item, we must set up for the specific production run. This set up time is an expensive part of our cost, yet has no bearing on the quality of our furniture.
Many of Our Dealers Order Months Prior to their Anticipated Delivery Date
This allows our factory to group items together with other similar pieces. By grouping orders for specific production dates, we can bring the cost down significantly. We at ArtFactory.com are willing to pass this savings on to you. To receive these discounts, you must order prior to specific production dates, if available. Ask your designer for details.
