On October 1, the Dutch VAT rate will increase from 19% to 21%. This will affect the price of Shapeways purchases for all European customers. The price difference will be about $5 per puzzle (on the high end). While this is not a very big difference, it is something to consider. If you are planning to purchase something soon then it would be a good idea to do it before October 1.
It is still possible that Shapeways will adjust their pricing so nothing will change, but I consider this unlikely since they would be cutting in to their profit margin, the change also affects markups and Shapeways is US-based. This change does not affect US and ROW customers.

So check out these Shapeways shops and pick up your favorite puzzles before the VAT increase goes in to effect.

Thanks for the heads up Tom. As the old saying goes, there are only two certainties in this world: death and taxes.
