Minimum Advertised Pricing Policy


Effective January 1, 2015, a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) on all Empire Art Direct (EAD) products will be in effect. International accounts must reflect pricing as translated into their local currency.

Empire Art Direct has been building a brand of strong recognition and a high perceived value since 2007. By not adhering to the established Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) a reseller can have a dramatic effect of diminishing or detracting from the perceived value of the Empire Art Direct brand and its products. The internet, with its worldwide impact, has the possibility to cause great harm to any companies’ products, if they are advertised at prices that will eliminate any legitimate retail competition. Our MAP pricing policy is intended for consumers to purchase from other resellers based on loyalty and customer care expectations. Therefore, if Empire Art Direct agrees to allow your company to sell its products, you will need to agree and abide by the following requirements and restrictions.

The MAP policy shall work under the following guidelines:

  1. The Minimum Advertised Price for any EAD product shall not be less than 20% below the current Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) which is formulated to be 2.5 times our wholesale dealer cost. MAP pricing is established by EAD and may be adjusted by EAD at its sole discretion.
  2. The MAP policy applies to all advertisements of EAD products in any and all media, including, but not limited to, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, Internet or similar electronic media, television, radio, and public signage.
  3. The MAP policy is not applicable to: 1) Any in-store advertising that is displayed only in the store and not distributed to any customer(s) outside of their store. 2) Any email newsletters sent to your customer database.
  4. The inclusion in advertising of free or discounted products (whether made by EAD or another manufacturer) with a product covered by the MAP policy would be contrary to the policy if it has the effect of discounting the adver­tised price of the covered product below the MAP.
  5. If pricing is displayed in other than a brick and mortar retail store, any strike-through or other alteration of the Minimum Advertised Price is prohibited.
  6. MAP applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual consumer within the dealer’s retail location or over the telephone. EAD dealers remain free to sell these products at any price they choose.
  7. MAP does not establish maximum advertised prices. All dealers and sales representatives may offer EAD products at any price in excess of the MAP.
  8. EAD's MAP policy does not in any way limit the ability of any dealer to advertise that “they have the lowest prices” or, they “will meet or beat any competitors price”, that consumers should “call for a price” or phrases of similar import as long as the price advertised or listed for the products is not less than MAP.
  9. Dealer agrees to hold all trademarks and copyrights of Empire Art Direct as the property of Empire Art Direct and use advertising materials provided by Empire Art Direct in an authorized manner only.
  10. Intentional or repeated failure to abide by this policy will result in termination of dealership. EAD does not intend to do business with dealers who degrade the image of EAD and its products. It is EAD’s sole discretion whether or not to provide prior notice or issue warnings before taking any action under this policy.
  11. E-Bay and Other Auction Web Sites Policy:
    1. “Buy it Now” options must be listed at a price equal to MAP or greater.
    2. For auctions the reserve and/or opening bids must start at MAP without a “Buy it Now” option.
    3. Best Offer Auctions Are Not Allowed
  12. Negotiated Contracts: From time to time it may be explicitly approved by Empire Art Direct in writing to sell certain EAD products at below MAP pricing. The discount amount and length of time will be determined at the time of this approved promotion by Empire Art Direct, LLC.
  13. EAD may run a sale from time to time and in such case the MAP will be the same as the sale price on those particular items and on those particular dates. EAD will send out a notice in advance with details of the special.
  14. Sales representatives of EAD products will supply a copy of the EAD MAP policy to any new or existing reseller to be filled out, acknowledged and returned to EAD. This form shall be signed and returned to EAD and in doing so, will bind the reseller to abide by the MAP and reseller requirements spelled out in this document.
