What is Proposition 65?
Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. You can go to the Proposition 65 website and get more information about harmful substances and what they contain.
As many art supplies do contain harmful substances, please be very careful about how you store, use and dispose of any chemical substance. You can request a Safety Data Sheet for any product we sell at ASK US ANYTHING>, 303-698-3838 or 1-800-ARTS

Sales Tax For Shipped Items
We are required to collect the sales tax based on where the customer takes possession of their purchased products.
For shipments within Colorado we are required to collect state sales tax (2.9%). Because we have a store in Denver, we must also collect tax for orders being shipped to the city of Denver (4.81%) and within the RTD (1.1%) for a total of 8.81% in Denver.
Orders shipping to Colorado Springs or elsewhere in El Paso county must also pay the appropriate tax (3.12% for Colorado Springs and 1.23% for El Paso county with a 1% PPRTA). With the 2.9% Colorado tax, Colorado Springs tax totals 8.25%.
