Help Us Combat Counterfeit Stampin’ Up! Products

Our entire Stampin’ Up! family is negatively impacted when Stampin’ Up!’s artwork and products, (our intellectual property), are illegally reproduced and sold. Infringement and theft of our intellectual property has increased rapidly the last few years, and counterfeit methods continue to become more brazen and sophisticated. We will continue to protect the Stampin’ Up! brand and our products as a critical priority and have significantly increased our efforts to identify counterfeit products sold online. We are monitoring large sales platforms such as AliExpress/Alibaba, Wish, Amazon, eBay, Google, Etsy, Ricardo, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest and we will file requests to remove counterfeit products as they are listed. We will continue to evaluate how to best combat this ever-evolving and perpetual issue, including legal action. Unfortunately, no singular action exists to stop all counterfeiting. It’s a daily effort that’s time consuming, complex, expensive, and despite every effort, we are sometimes unsuccessful. This problem isn’t unique to Stampin’ Up!, and pursuing counterfeiters across international borders is particularly difficult, but we will keep fighting!

Thank you for the responses last time we asked for help. Identifying counterfeit product is a daily effort and we want to remind you how you can make a difference. 

You can help us combat counterfeiting you see by sending an email to Infringements@stampinup.com with the following information:

  • A link to the webpage where counterfeit products are shown or listed (direct links are preferred over screenshots)
  • Name of the stamp set/product (if known)
  • Any other relevant details

Please note: The email address above is dedicated strictly to counterfeit product reporting; all other general or compliance inquiries should continue to be sent to Demonstrator Support.

Thanks for your continued support as we work to protect Stampin’ Up!’s intellectual property.

April 2020 Paper Pumpkin: My Wonderful Family

In-Person OnTour Events Cancelled

With the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continuing to develop, and global advisements against large in-person gatherings for the foreseeable future, we will NOT be opening OnTour registration on Tuesday, March 17. We will be working over the next few weeks to pivot away from the in-person events toward a virtual event plan. Stay tuned for updates in the next few weeks, thank you for your patience as we work to navigate this fluid situation.
