You may enter that number in the notes field on our website, or give it to the Customer Service Specialist at our 800 number when placing your order.

Information Regarding Resellers

We have never been a merchant middleman and do not discount off of our published pricing. The exception to this policy is only large catalogers who have a proven national circulation, place large quantity orders, and understand our history and business paradigm well. We sell direct to all end users. The Stanchions Direct name and product line is prevalent over the internet and our catalog circulation widespread. Our choice to not resell products in small quantities at a discount is based on our history and business model. The fact that we market direct in all industries distinguishes us from many display wholesalers who do not sell direct to end users. Please do not request or submit information for discounted or special pricing on any product and quantity where we have a published price, as that will also be your price. We do maintain a section of closeout items that many resellers may be interested in browsing.
