Statement Regarding Sales and Exports to the US Market
As a result of the overturning of Roe v. Wade earlier today by the Supreme Court of the United States, Vivid Print is, effective immediately, discontinuing the shipment and sales of our products to the US market. Further, we will no longer purchase from any suppliers located in states which enact bans as a result of this decision.
While US sales and exports only account for 10% of our online business and 20% of our supply chain, we feel that taking a stand on the rights of women and others to control their own bodies is imperative. The ripple effects of this decision could also introduce restrictions in other areas of the lives of our American neighbours including LGBTQ rights and access to birth control.
The decision today makes the United States one of only four countries since 1994 to restrict access to abortion.
