UPDATES: February 1, 2018: ITEM APPROACHING NOT-ORDERABLE STATUS

Blythe Klipple

Sales for the following product have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. It will be approximately the end of February before this item is back in stock.  

145590: Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon

In order to give you time to contact your customers so they may close any affected orders, this product will remain available until Friday, February 2, at 8:00 AM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status. After that time, please consult the Inventory Status Report (ISR) to track this item’s availability.

Additionally, when you enter this product’s item number in OEX on a customer, workshop, or demonstrator order, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when this product is back in stock. This allows you to find out immediately when the item’s status changes and it is again available for purchase.

Until this item is back in stock, you might consider the following similar products:

  • 144159: Whisper White 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon
  • 144172: Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon
  • 124262: Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine

Explanatory note: Costs incurred by backorders can be in the tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars; therefore, after weighing the variables, we occasionally must make the decision to temporarily turn off an item number rather than permit backorders to accrue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, putting a product in not-orderable status while we wait for the stock to replenish allows the company to hold costs down.

As a reminder, be sure to regularly check the Inventory Status Report (ISR) as you plan your events and workshops; this will help you keep track of any items that may be in backordered or not-orderable status.


(note from BK:  If you’re noticing a difference in the way our updates are looking these days, that because SU! has (have) changed their format and layout.  I usually copy/paste so ………….. different appearance of late.)
