GRS Tools remains steadfast in our commitment to providing the highest-quality tools for hand engravers and jewelers. As part of this commitment, we are dedicated to using US-sourced materials and producing your tools right here in Emporia, Kansas. Unfortunately, we have seen continued price increases from our vendors and shipping companies. We have done our best to increase efficiencies, cut costs, and absorb as much of the increases in freight, raw materials, and other inputs as we could. These efforts have helped, but we have still reached the point where it is necessary to increase our product prices to continue to offer the quality tools and service that you expect from GRS. Thank you for your continued business and for considering GRS Tools as you shop for your hand engraving and jewelry tool needs. The increase will go into effect January 3rd, 2022.
As we prepare for the 2022 GRS Training Center year, we would like to inform you about this year’s enrollment process. We will publish the dates on the website soon. We will be using a four-phase enrollment process this year to try and take care of students that were on the waitlist in 2021. We have laid out the phases of enrollment below.
Phase 1 | Waitlist Enrollment: February 14th
Enrollment opens via phone to anybody that was on the waiting list for 2021. This will include all levels of instruction, but you need to have been on the waiting list to be eligible for that class.
