Will you reduce the value of my order on the customs paperwork or mark it as a ‘gift’ so I pay less in customs duties/taxes/import fees?

We do get asked this frequently and we wish there was some way to ethically avoid these taxes and fees for our international customers but unfortunately there isn’t.  We must properly fill out all customs paperwork and include a receipt with your order.  We made a commitment early on in running our business to be 100% straightforward and honest in all of our dealings, with our customers, vendors, and even the tax-man.  We hope you understand and even find comfort in knowing that we’re committed in being 100% straightforward with you as well.  We do appreciate your business and will continue to strive to keep our prices affordable.  Thanks!
