Tariffs and you

If the next batch of tariffs gets approved, expect to see a significant increase of approximately 10-25% on a lot of gaming products. Most game companies print the majority of their products in China and game boards, printing ink and sleeve plastic would be included. Among others, Ultra Pro, Wiz Kids, CMON, Cards Against Humanity, Steve Jackson Games all print their products in China because of the significant cost savings. Pokemon, Wizards of the Coast, Reaper and Looney Labs print their games primarily in the US and Chessex produces its dice in Germany so they will be exempt. If the third batch of tariffs does get put into place, and there is a period for comments to go to the government before the tariffs are imposed.
