Ever since Stampin' Up made their announcement of the new Color Renovation that will be occurring with the release of the new catalog, the retiring color items (ink, reinkers and paper) have been selling FAST! Stampin' Up wants everyone to be able to get the items that they are wants to this is what they have come up with to help the situation:
1) Regarding the reinkers: For the remainder of May, any orders that cannot be filled will be put on backorder and filled as quickly as possible from those. Once June comes, once the supplies are gone, that's it.
2) Regarding the paper: (This comes directly from the Stampin' Up site) "To help us be able to provide you with the card stock in the retiring colours for as long as possible, we will be substituting textured paper for some of the smooth colours--including card stock in 8-1/2" x 11" as well as 12" x 12"--where the smooth is no longer available. You will notice these colours go on backorder, and we will be filling as many of those as possible with textured card stock. Because the demand for each colour varies, we are unable to provide a list of what colours of card stock will be substituted with textured, or at what point that will happen. However, if you receive a package of card stock that is textured instead of smooth, there will be a sticker on the package indicating that change. There will be no change in item code or price for these substitutions".
So obviously your best bet is to order the retiring items that you are wanting ASAP to guarantee that you will be able to get them. E-mail me at JodiStilwell@yahoo.com if you would like to place an order.
