Current News and Information

FYI for ANW Visa imprinter users:

The date for handing in the Artisans Visa imprinters has now changed to November 16th., the last day of our show. Because Moneris charges us in the beginning of December on a yearly basis, we would like to return all the imprinters right after the show, so we won't have to pay the fees for 2015. The sooner we can return them all, the less cost there is to us.

If you do not intend to do the Christmas Show this year or you are now using Square with your handheld device, we would like the imprinters turned in by September 1st. Please drop the imprinters off, or mail them to:

			Artisans Northwest
			2005 Mountain Rd
			Thunder Bay ON P7J 1C9
			

Failure to hand in your imprinter on or after the deadline date means you now own that machine and will have to pay all costs pertaining to it.
