Studio M is committed to supporting the Independent Retailer with stores focused on gift, home, garden, hardware, and specialty store products. Home-based businesses that create revenue through home parties, flea markets, community events, or other similar venues are not eligible for consideration.
Amazon and General Internet Policy
To protect our brand and help your store to stay competitive, we have instituted a policy concerning internet sales. Selling Studio M products on Amazon and other marketplace sites such as (but not limited to) Walmart.com, eBay, and Jet.com is strictly prohibited. Listing products on Amazon or other 3rd Party sites will result in your account being closed. All independent e-commerce retailers are subject to approval.
Effective July 1, 2017, we have implemented a minimum advertised price (MAP) policy that will help protect Studio M and our retail partners from the effects of economic pressures that have led to aggressive discounting. This policy defines the minimum price you may advertise our products, but in no way restricts you, as a retailer, from determining your final selling price. Please visit wholesale.studio-m.com/MAP to review our complete MAP Policy.
Studio M has been experiencing the impact of tariffs imposed on imported goods since September 2018, and we have absorbed the cost as long as possible. While we will continue to mitigate part of the burden, we must implement a surcharge on orders of goods imported from China. All orders placed on or after February 15, 2020 will include a 3% surcharge on tariff-affected items. The following will NOT be affected by our tariff policy: MailWraps, Yard DeSigns, Art Poles, Mini Art Poles, Birdhouses, Bird Baths, Birdhouse Art Poles, Art Planters, Art Pots, Door Décor, Textiles*, and Painted Peace Chimes. The total tariff surcharge will appear as the last line item on your invoice. To make it clear which products are affected, tariff items will be denoted in the surcharge column on the far right.
We will continue to closely monitor the government¹s tariff policies and will modify or eliminate this surcharge should things change.
*Textiles include items like flour sack towels, zipper pouches, etc. - flags and mats are not considered textiles.
Current product totaling $100 or more will be backordered and shipped within 60 days unless the customer requests it to be cancelled. Sale items will not be backordered.

We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality merchandise and guarantee our products to be free of defects. Defective merchandise will be promptly replaced. All claims for inaccurate shipments must be made within fifteen (15) days of receipt of shipment. Claims for cartons damaged in shipping must be made with the carrier.
