This is my second post of the day – if you’d like to see the Coffee Cafe card I shared earlier today – check it out right here!!
Stampin’ Up! shared the following note with us this morning related to the Stampin’ Blends and the possibility of backorders with long delays:
Since the introduction of Stampin’ Blends in October 2017, our forecasting and planning department has been closely monitoring our Stampin’ Blends inventory and customers’ buying patterns. Over the last couple of months, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the sales of Stampin’ Blends, which is wonderful—you are buying them, using them, and loving them!
Unfortunately, the quick increase in sales, along with a long lead time from our supplier in China, and the temporary shutdown of all factories in China for the government-mandated Chinese New Year holiday, has created a perfect storm for backorders. In the next coming weeks, we anticipate that approximately 14 of our current 27-color Stampin’ Blends collection will go on backorder:
- Bermuda Bay (Light and Dark)
- Calypso Coral (Dark)
- Crumb Cake (Light and Dark)
- Pink Pirouette (Light and Dark)
- Pool Party (Light and Dark – currently on backorder)
- Pumpkin Pie (Dark)
- Smoky Slate (Light and Dark)
Because of Chinese New Year, we don’t yet have a firm date of when more of these colors will be available, but we anticipate it won’t be until the end of April.
Letting you know of this potential backorder situation could result in our current inventory being depleted even more quickly; however, we wanted to give you the opportunity to purchase your favorite Stampin’ Blends colors before they go on backorder.
So if you are wanting any of those colors of Stampin’ Blends before they go on backorder, get them very soon! You can see the entire Blends collection in my online store here.
