Blendabilities Discontinued

Kay Capps

Hi- I am saddened the "Blenders" are gone! I was just getting some
customers to purchase them!

I have spent lots of "hobby demo" money to build them up in my demoing
and workshop kit with some colors doubled to use in classes.

I am also using them in a class coming up in April-

Do I still use them or need to use something else to color in the
images?

I have everything already cut for 60 cards.

Thanks for your help!

I don't see how it would benefit you to use an item you can't sell.   P.S.
I thought it sounded like they are working on something for us demos, but
who knows when.  In the meantime

Q: I invested in Blendabilities. Now what?

A: We know that this is a very painful subject for many of you. We see your
stake in this, and we know you've invested in this product with your
customers. Many of you have purchased multiple packages of Blendabilities
with the sole purpose of demonstrating them to your customers. Right now, we
don't have an answer regarding how we will address this issue. We'll need
time to do research and will let you know when we determine a course of
action.

 

Can you use the regular Stampin Markers and blender pen or aqua painters and
stamp with Staz-On  - that's what we did before Blendies.

I would use blender pens with ink pads.  You can get some wonderful results
with them.

I have purchased several pack of Blendabilites but now I can't get all of
the colors which makes my previous purchases worthless.  I cannot color all
images because I lack all the color families and can't demonstrate them
because my customers cannot purchase them.  Worthless inventory.  Bad
investment on my part.

Remember that one of the FAQ's states:
Q: I invested in Blendabilities.  Now what?
A: We know that this is a very painful subject for many of you. We see your stake in this, and we know you’ve invested in this product with your customers.  Many of you have purchased multiple packages of  Blendabilities with the sole purpose of demonstrating them to your customers. Right now, we don’t have an answer regarding how we will address this issue. We’ll need time to do research and will let you know when we determine a course of action
Give SU! some time to get it figured out.  They've always been fair in the past and I don't expect this situation to be any different.

My analogy on the whole situation is a medical one...   They've just discovered a major skin wound and the first step in 1st aid is to stop the bleeding (which they've done by pulling the product line).  The next step is to figure out how they're going to fix the skin - stitches and/or glue (which they've done with sharing how to get replacements for the ones ordered).  The step after that is to figure out how to heal the scar with minimal damage (that's what I equate to how are they going to compensate the demos who have invested in the product).

I'm glad they stopped the bleeding and started stitching up the skin.  It's going to take some time to figure out what to do with the scar.

Be patient.

This is a very good way of putting it!  I LOVE the Blendabilities and am truly heartbroken over this but I know it it for the best.  If anyone has working sets of Blendabilities that they want to part with for a good deal let me know.  Thanks.
Have a great day!
Cathy

RE: SU!: Blendabilities Discontinued

John Sanpietro
There's a really good business lesson here.  Never buy product you can't make a profit from in 30 days and ALWAYS have a plan to make that profit before you buy it.

With the Blendabilities, I advised my clients to start small... and bring their customers along bit by bit, as well.  That way, you're not spending a ton of money right away (creating a cash flow crisis in your business), and you're not overwhelming your customers' bank accounts, either.

It's just good business to never buy more than you can sell.  Follow that principle, and you'll end up selling a lot more.
Warmest regards,

John
