UPDATES: April 9, 2019: Weekly Updates

Blythe Klipple

Sit back and digest this week’s updates!


  
NEW THIS WEEK

Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers.

Click here (US | CA-EN | CA-FR) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder. 

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best.

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course.

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March .

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized.

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products.

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas.

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page to get all the details including a Q&A PDF.

Sale-A-Bration Rewards

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here.

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon

On April 15 at 1:00 PM (MT), we will post retiring product lists for the occasions and annual catalogs. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so check the demonstrator website on April 15 and get your favorite items before they’re gone!

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada.

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

Well this is a lot of bad news.  SU has done so many exclusives that they drop a few years later - stampin trimmer being the latest example.

NEW THIS WEEK

Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers.

Click here (US | CA-EN | CA-FR) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder. 

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best.

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course.

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March .

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized.

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products.

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas.

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page to get all the details including a Q&A PDF.

Sale-A-Bration Rewards

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here.

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon

On April 15 at 1:00 PM (MT), we will post retiring product lists for the occasions and annual catalogs. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so check the demonstrator website on April 15 and get your favorite items before they’re gone!

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada.

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

To learn more about the price change and how it will affect CSV, past kits and refills, discounts on prepaids, etc., please click here.

I can’t wait to see what wonderful changes are in store for SU! None of us like change, but it is in our best interest to stay positive for our customers. My upline suggested that her down line stay off social media today to avoid any negativity. Stay positive ladies.

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada.

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

I’m old and I don’t like change.  My first response was Oh No!  

Then I thought about how much I would like some larger dies and how much I hate the precision base plate.  I can’t wait to see what’s coming!!  And maybe cutting out the middle man will solve some of our backorder problems!

NEW THIS WEEK


Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers.

Click here (US<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_US.pdf> | CA-EN<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_CA.pdf> | CA-FR<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_QC.pdf>) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder.

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best.

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course.

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March .

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized.

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products.

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas.

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/die-cutting-and-embossing-product-line-changes> to get all the details including a Q&A PDF.

Sale-A-Bration Rewards

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/2019-sale-a-bration>.

Re: SU!: UPDATES: April 9, 2019: Weekly Updates

Nola Burkhard

Well, I’ sure there are more positives then negatives with all the changes they are putting forward, but I won’t be upgrading my trimmer or Big Shot anytime soon. I just got a 2nd one for free from a huge order I was able to put in. It’s still in the box! 
AND, they just had a price increase on many of their items with the last annual catalog - I always stock up on the necessary items (esp. card stock) when I know this is coming.
But, I do hope it’s more in our favor then not. It’s all in how they spin it and how we make it a positive out come to our customers and ourselves.
Can’t wait to see what the new colors look like - at least they told us the names:
Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococco Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile!
But, what is a Rococco!!???!!!
Printing it all out so I can absorb it and try to turn my frown upside down!

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement 

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada. 

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

I concur with Kay.  Change is difficult but without it we stagnate. 

I too have sold many trimmers but….. I am anxious to see what is ahead and remain positive!

NEW THIS WEEK


Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers.

Click here (US<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_US.pdf> | CA-EN<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_CA.pdf> | CA-FR<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_QC.pdf>) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder.

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best.

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course.

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March .

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized.

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products.

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas.

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/die-cutting-and-embossing-product-line-changes> to get all the details including a Q&A PDF.

Sale-A-Bration Rewards

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/2019-sale-a-bration>.

In reply to this post by Blythe Klipple

I had seen some rumblings on FB in the Demo Planner Group this morning about the trimmer and was thinking how our negative thoughts get projected onto whatever we do and often permeate other areas of our lives without our knowing it. I LOVE my Big Shot, and I never want to get rid of it. But, as hard as change is, it is often good for us. Learning something new is how our brains stay young. I imagine there will be replacements for both the trimmer and Big Shot sometime in the middle of the 19-20 catalog year. Meanwhile, I'm going to make an effort to buy all the folders and dies I want, and then concentrate on Simple Stamping which I haven't tried yet.

Well, I’ sure there are more positives then negatives with all the changes they are putting forward, but I won’t be upgrading my trimmer or Big Shot anytime soon. I just got a 2nd one for free from a huge order I was able to put in. It’s still in the box! 
AND, they just had a price increase on many of their items with the last annual catalog - I always stock up on the necessary items (esp. card stock) when I know this is coming.
But, I do hope it’s more in our favor then not. It’s all in how they spin it and how we make it a positive out come to our customers and ourselves.
Can’t wait to see what the new colors look like - at least they told us the names:
Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococco Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile!
But, what is a Rococco!!???!!!
Printing it all out so I can absorb it and try to turn my frown upside down!

I’m old and I don’t like change.  My first response was Oh No!  

Then I thought about how much I would like some larger dies and how much I hate the precision base plate.  I can’t wait to see what’s coming!!  And maybe cutting out the middle man will solve some of our backorder problems!

I can’t wait to see what wonderful changes are in store for SU! None of us like change, but it is in our best interest to stay positive for our customers. My upline suggested that her down line stay off social media today to avoid any negativity. Stay positive ladies.

NEW THIS WEEK 


Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog 

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information. 

Upcoming Pricing Changes 

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers. 

Click here (US<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_US.pdf> | CA-EN<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_CA.pdf> | CA-FR<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_QC.pdf>) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder. 

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best. 

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation 

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product. 

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again. 

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes 

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course. 

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March . 

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized. 

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products. 

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas. 

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/die-cutting-and-embossing-product-line-changes> to get all the details including a Q&A PDF. 

Sale-A-Bration Rewards 

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/2019-sale-a-bration>. 

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon 

On April 15 at 1:00 PM (MT), we will post retiring product lists for the occasions and annual catalogs. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so check the demonstrator website on April 15 and get your favorite items before they’re gone! 

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement 

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada. 

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly. 

To learn more about the price change and how it will affect CSV, past kits and refills, discounts on prepaids, etc., please click here<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/stampin-university/products/paper-pumpkin/paper-pumpkin-price-change>.

Well, I’ sure there are more positives then negatives with all the changes they are putting forward, but I won’t be upgrading my trimmer or Big Shot anytime soon. I just got a 2nd one for free from a huge order I was able to put in. It’s still in the box!
AND, they just had a price increase on many of their items with the last annual catalog - I always stock up on the necessary items (esp. card stock) when I know this is coming.
But, I do hope it’s more in our favor then not. It’s all in how they spin it and how we make it a positive out come to our customers and ourselves.
Can’t wait to see what the new colors look like - at least they told us the names:
Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococco Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile!
But, what is a Rococco!!???!!!
Printing it all out so I can absorb it and try to turn my frown upside down!

I’m old and I don’t like change. My first response was Oh No! 

Then I thought about how much I would like some larger dies and how much I hate the precision base plate. I can’t wait to see what’s coming!! And maybe cutting out the middle man will solve some of our backorder problems!

NEW THIS WEEK 


Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog 

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information. 

Upcoming Pricing Changes 

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers. 

Click here (US<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_US.pdf> | CA-EN<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_CA.pdf> | CA-FR<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_QC.pdf>) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder. 

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best. 

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation 

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe.

Well this is a lot of bad news.  SU has done so many exclusives that they drop a few years later - stampin trimmer being the latest example.

Sit back and digest this week’s updates!

 

 

  

NEW THIS WEEK

 

Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers.

Click here (US | CA-EN | CA-FR) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder. 

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best.

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course.

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March .

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized.

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products.

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas.

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page to get all the details including a Q&A PDF.

Sale-A-Bration Rewards

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here.

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon

On April 15 at 1:00 PM (MT), we will post retiring product lists for the occasions and annual catalogs. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so check the demonstrator website on April 15 and get your favorite items before they’re gone!

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada.

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

To learn more about the price change and how it will affect CSV, past kits and refills, discounts on prepaids, etc., please click here.

In reply to this post by donnab07

On further thought, since I am much more of a hobby Demo and see myself as continuing in this direction, I will try even more to buying only what I LOVE and not what I or others like.
Being retired means staying within my means. I have so much stuff that I never use.
Also, I will try to stick more to meeting my minimums.
Will power!!!
Will be interesting that’s for sure!

Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

Re: SU!: UPDATES: April 9, 2019: Weekly Updates

In reply to this post by Nola Burkhard

Per Dictionary.com:

ROCOCO (SU! altered the spelling):

  1. a style of architecture and decoration, originating in France about 1720, evolved from Baroque types and distinguished by its elegant refinement in using different materials for a delicate overall effect and by its ornament of shellwork, foliage, etc.
Also:
noting or pertaining to a style of painting developed simultaneously with the rococo in architecture and decoration, characterized chiefly by smallness of scale, delicacy of color, freedom of brushwork, and the selection of playful subjects as thematic material.

SU! probably is using the name because they like their color names to be alliterative!  IMHO!

Well, I’ sure there are more positives then negatives with all the changes they are putting forward, but I won’t be upgrading my trimmer or Big Shot anytime soon. I just got a 2nd one for free from a huge order I was able to put in. It’s still in the box! 
AND, they just had a price increase on many of their items with the last annual catalog - I always stock up on the necessary items (esp. card stock) when I know this is coming.
But, I do hope it’s more in our favor then not. It’s all in how they spin it and how we make it a positive out come to our customers and ourselves.
Can’t wait to see what the new colors look like - at least they told us the names:
Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococco Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile!
But, what is a Rococco!!???!!!
Printing it all out so I can absorb it and try to turn my frown upside down!

NEW THIS WEEK 


Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog 

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information. 

Upcoming Pricing Changes 

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers. 

Click here (US<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_US.pdf> | CA-EN<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_CA.pdf> | CA-FR<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_QC.pdf>) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder. 

We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best. 

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation 

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product. 

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again. 

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes 

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course. 

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March . 

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized. 

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products. 

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas. 

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/die-cutting-and-embossing-product-line-changes> to get all the details including a Q&A PDF. 

Sale-A-Bration Rewards 

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/2019-sale-a-bration>. 

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon 

On April 15 at 1:00 PM (MT), we will post retiring product lists for the occasions and annual catalogs. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so check the demonstrator website on April 15 and get your favorite items before they’re gone! 

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement 

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada. 

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

In reply to this post by Kim Innis

For now, this news is a negative !! Especially since I have a couple customers that recently purchased Trimmers!! I just don't understand why they waited a month before a new catalog to spring this on us. They had to know this months ago. At least customers and us could have prepared better for these changes. I'm really taking issue with the trimmer news. The changes to the dies and embossing folders can be managed but the loss of a major tool like the trimmer is very different. Just my honest two cents!

Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information.

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.

While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

We are making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course.

Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems we experienced beginning in March .

The challenges we are facing moving forward are not insurmountable, but they are taking time to resolve. Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. We want to make sure that what we offer supports demonstrators by being high quality, thoroughly considered, and dependable product; we want to take the time to get it right for you and your customers rather than rush something to market. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized.

However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). You may have noticed we’re not referring to these products using names you’re familiar with. Another change required in this transition is to the terminology we use to refer to die-cutting and embossing products.

One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas.

So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future. Visit this page<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/die-cutting-and-embossing-product-line-changes> to get all the details including a Q&A PDF.

Sale-A-Bration Rewards

You can now redeem those Sale-A-Bration rewards you worked so hard to earn! The redemption period ends June 11, 2019. Learn more here<https://my.stampinup.com/portal/happening-now/current-promotions/2019-sale-a-bration>.

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon

On April 15 at 1:00 PM (MT), we will post retiring product lists for the occasions and annual catalogs. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so check the demonstrator website on April 15 and get your favorite items before they’re gone!

Paper Pumpkin Price Change Announcement

As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 in the United States and $3.05 in Canada; the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States and $3.00 in Canada.

Why the price change? Costs, including shipping, have continually increased over the past six years and it has become necessary to raise the subscription price in order to maintain a successful program. Stampin’ Up! continues to work hard to ensure that a key selling feature of Paper Pumpkin is its low price point, as well as provide an appealing craft project that your customers can enjoy monthly.

Re: SU!: UPDATES: April 9, 2019: Weekly Updates

Judi Carpenter

As a demo who has been around a long time, I want to share my thoughts on this situation, Barbara (and everyone else who cares to read this).  It used to be that we didn't know about any changes until  the next catalog actually came out!  Of course, that irritated demonstrators (doesn't just about everything?), so Stampin' Up! began telling us ahead of time.  I, too, am not pleased that the Stampin' Trimmer is going away.  I like it and several of my customers do, too.  But when there are issues regarding delivery and/or quality of the product, Stampin' Up! responds.  That pleases me.  I'm in my 18th year as a demonstrator, so you can believe me when I say I've seen many, many changes.  Not all of them made me happy, but I do understand that Stampin' Up! is a business and must function as one.  They have to consider the bottom line, just like we do as demonstrators.  Let's respect them and each other.  And most important of all, let's not whine about the changes when we're talking with customers.  That can be devastating to our businesses.  I talk about the positive aspects of the company, including the consistent concern for quality.  I don't have to understand everything SU! does, but I do need to keep a positive attitude so my customers will appreciate what they (and I) do for them.  If we complain about hearing about this change and others, we just might find ourselves not being advised in the future.  Just my 25 cents' worth (inflation there, folks!) for tonight.

For now, this news is a negative !! Especially since I have a couple customers that recently purchased Trimmers!! I just don't understand why they waited a month before a new catalog to spring this on us. They had to know this months ago. At least customers and us could have prepared better for these changes. I'm really taking issue with the trimmer news. The changes to the dies and embossing folders can be managed but the loss of a major tool like the trimmer is very different. Just my honest two cents!

Per Dictionary.com:

ROCOCO (SU! altered the spelling):

  1. a style of architecture and decoration, originating in France about 1720, evolved from Baroque types and distinguished by its elegant refinement in using different materials for a delicate overall effect and by its ornament of shellwork, foliage, etc.
Also:
noting or pertaining to a style of painting developed simultaneously with the rococo in architecture and decoration, characterized chiefly by smallness of scale, delicacy of color, freedom of brushwork, and the selection of playful subjects as thematic material.

SU! probably is using the name because they like their color names to be alliterative! IMHO!

Well, I’ sure there are more positives then negatives with all the changes they are putting forward, but I won’t be upgrading my trimmer or Big Shot anytime soon. I just got a 2nd one for free from a huge order I was able to put in. It’s still in the box!
AND, they just had a price increase on many of their items with the last annual catalog - I always stock up on the necessary items (esp. card stock) when I know this is coming.
But, I do hope it’s more in our favor then not. It’s all in how they spin it and how we make it a positive out come to our customers and ourselves.
Can’t wait to see what the new colors look like - at least they told us the names:
Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococco Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile!
But, what is a Rococco!!???!!!
Printing it all out so I can absorb it and try to turn my frown upside down!

I’m old and I don’t like change. My first response was Oh No!

Then I thought about how much I would like some larger dies and how much I hate the precision base plate. I can’t wait to see what’s coming!! And maybe cutting out the middle man will solve some of our backorder problems!

I can’t wait to see what wonderful changes are in store for SU! None of us like change, but it is in our best interest to stay positive for our customers. My upline suggested that her down line stay off social media today to avoid any negativity. Stay positive ladies.

NEW THIS WEEK


Pricing and Product Line Changes with the New Catalog

The 2019–2020 annual catalog launch is just around the corner, and we want to share an overview of some important pricing and product information.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

We want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact demonstrators and their customers.

Click here (US<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_US.pdf> | CA-EN<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_CA.pdf> | CA-FR<https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2019-2020%20Annual%20Catalog/Price%20Change%20Charts/03.25.19_AC_PRICE_CHANGE_QC.pdf>) for a complete list of individual product price increases in the 2019–2020 annual catalog, which will be in effect for all catalog-related promotions, including the Product Purchase Premiere and the annual catalog preorder.
