UPDATES: May 25, 2017: Status of the Daisy Punch

Status of the Daisy Punch

If you’ve been monitoring the Inventory Status Report, then you know the Daisy Punch is currently on backorder. This is another one of those products—much like the Glimmer Enamel Dots—that we simply could not anticipate how popular it would be (speaking of Glimmer Enamel Dots, did you notice their arrival date has been updated to June 5?! Yay!).

To give you some background, on average, we’ll sell about 7,000 of any given punch in a year. Knowing that the Daisy Punch would be popular, our initial order quantity (a four-month supply) was 10,000—more than a year’s supply for a typical punch. Then, in the first two weeks of the preorder, you bought 7,200! As soon as we saw how quickly it was selling, we placed two additional orders. Unfortunately, those take time to produce. After negotiating with the manufacturer and upgrading the shipping method to air freight, we are expecting 6,800 more punches by June 26 and then an additional 4,400 punches in July.

However, to prevent this punch from being in a near-permanent backorder status, we have made the difficult decision to turn off the Daisy Punch beginning June 1 and not accept any additional orders until our first shipment arrives the week of June 26. This includes the punch, as well as the Daisy Delight Bundle (the Daisy Punch and coordinating stamp set).

Please let your customers know that while this punch will not be available for purchase on June 1, it will be available later that month, and remind them that there are many more exciting new products available in the 2017-2018 annual catalog. We encourage you to watch the Inventory Status Report and use the email notification option in the ordering system to stay apprised of the current inventory status for these products.
