June 1 - Retiring colors available only “while supplies last”
June 1 - Last Chance list of stamp sets and accessories will be available
June 30 - Last day to order any retiring product (if not out-of-stock)
With Stampin’ Up!’s recent Color Renovation announcement, we have experienced a spike–much greater than anticipated–in demand for some of our retiring colors. Even with the most careful planning and all of the company’s forecasts from previous color transitions and current buying behaviors, the demand was greatly underestimated.
For re-inkers in retiring colors, as we run out, they will be placed on backorder status and those orders will be filled as quickly as we receive the product. We will continue to do this to the best of our ability through May, and then the re-inkers will be available while supplies last in June.
Card stock presents a bit larger problem, and because of this, textured paper may be substituted for some of the smooth colors–including card stock in 8-1/2″ x 11″ as well as 12″ x 12″–where the smooth is no longer available. You will notice these colors go on backorder, and we will be filling as many of those as possible with textured card stock. Because the demand for each color varies, we are unable to provide a list of what colors of card stock will be substituted with textured, or at what point that will happen. However, if you receive a package of card stock that is textured instead of smooth, there will be a sticker on the package indicating that change.
To stock up on your favorites before they are gone forever, send me an email as soon as possible.
