In February 27’s weekly updates, we let you know some of the challenges we’re experiencing in maintaining an adequate supply of Stampin’ Blends. Extremely long lead times with our supplier, combined with an unexpected increase in demand, has caused many of our current 27-color offering to go on backorder. In fact, if you’ve been monitoring the Inventory Status Report, you’re probably already aware of the increasing backorders and low-inventory alerts for many of our Stampin’ Blends.
At this time, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to make our entire Stampin’ Blends product line unorderable until approximately the end of May. This is not a decision we came to lightly; but with backorders only likely to get worse in the coming weeks, it is in the best interest of the company—and by association, Stampin’ Up! demonstrators—to temporarily make them unavailable.
Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning Friday, March 23, noon (MT).
Be assured that this decision has not been made due to any financial challenges on the part of Stampin’ Up! This is purely due to the rise in demand and the complications we face with our supplier for this particular product line.
We will keep you posted on the availability of Stampin’ Blends as we learn more.
