New this Week

Annual Catalog Preorder Begins!

The 2017-2018 annual catalog preorder begins today!

  • Visit the Promotions page to see what’s available and start preparing for your annual catalog open houses and parties. Remember: New demonstrators can choose preorder products for their Starter Kits!
  • Eight packs of catalogs are now available for purchase or redemption with flex points. Get ordering information on the Catalog Details page.
  • Visit the Catalogs page to see any catalog corrections.
  • Check out select annual catalog product videos on youtube.com/stampinup. All annual catalog product videos, including Memories & More, will be available June 1.
  • You can also download 2017-2018 annual catalog images on the Catalogs page.
  • Per the Demonstrator Policies manual, you may post photos of catalog products and projects made with those products, but you may not post photos of catalog pages (excluding the cover) before the catalog is available to all customers. Read more policy details here.

Your complimentary copy of the 2017-2018 annual catalog will be included with your first demonstrator order between today and May 14. If you don’t place a demonstrator order during that time, your catalog will ship the week of May 15 via standard (bulk) mail, which can take up to three weeks to deliver.

Possible Backorder during the Preorder

We anticipate the Daisy Punch (item 143713) is at risk for going on backorder during the preorder. Be sure to check the Inventory Status Report daily.

Paper Pumpkin Website Update

Signing up for Paper Pumpkin just got easier than ever! We’ve streamlined our subscription and account management pages in an effort to make it as simple as possible for your customers to skip to the fun—and we think you’re going to love the change.

First, you’ll notice an improved experience as you manage your personal, payment, and subscription information; you’ll also be able to sign up, set your password, see your monthly cost, and apply/remove pre-paid or promo codes on the home page. Is there more? Yes! All of these changes will be mobile friendly. See the onscreen walkthrough with Carrie Warner here!

Watch for more Paper Pumpkin updates—including news about our super fun May kit—coming soon!

Please note: Last week, we let you know that part of the Paper Pumpkin website update included clearing the system on May 1 of any accounts with incomplete account set-up information. We also sent emails to those of you with incomplete accounts. If you didn’t have time to complete your information before that time, don’t worry. You can always go back and start the process over with the same (or another) email address. If you have any problems with this, feel free to call our customer service line at 800-782-6787.

It’s a Paper Pumpkin Mystery!

Do you love Paper Pumpkin? Do you like solving mysteries? We hope you answered yes to both questions, because starting TODAY, we’re inviting our Paper Pumpkin Facebook followers to participate in a Guess the May Kit game—complete with “punny” clues intended to help participants figure out this month’s kit theme.

You and your customers will also have a chance to win a free kit when you share the excitement online! Just share or tag a friend to the Facebook post before the deadline specified in each post for a chance to win! After the deadline we will randomly select a “sharer” or “tagger” and send a pre-paid code (redeemable for a free Paper Pumpkin kit!) to both the winner and the friend they shared with or tagged. You must be 18 years of age or older and live in the U.S. or Canada to be eligible to win.

Don’t wait! Check out our Paper Pumpkin Facebook page now to get in on the fun—and spread the word!

Solution for Pricing Error in New Catalog (Canada Only)

In the April 11 Weekly Update, we let you know about pricing errors on p. 231 of the English Canadian annual catalog, and that the online PDF (CA-EN/CA-FR)  had been corrected. We have also noted this error in the Catalog Corrections list on the Catalog page.

To fix the problem, we’ve designed an adhesive correction sheet that you can place over p. 231 so it shows correct prices. This correction sheet will be included with any catalogs you order.

In the following orders, the adhesive correction sheet will already be placed on p. 231:

  • Complimentary catalogs shipped to demonstrators the week of May 15, who did not place a Demonstrator Order between May 2–14.
  • Catalogs ordered for customers through the Mailing Selector.
  • Single catalogs ordered beginning June 1.

In the following orders, you will need to use these instructions to place the included adhesive correction sheet(s) to p. 231:

  • Complimentary catalogs included in Demonstrator Orders placed between May 2–14.
  • 8-Packs ordered or redeemed with flex points starting May 2.
