Hello Stamping Friends,
Stampin’ Up! is moving to a stronger position in the market. They are eliminating the middle man for their die cutting and embossing machine and going direct to the manufacturer! Accordingly the “Big Shot”, as we know it, will be retired along with all its accessories.
I am listing everything that is “Big Shot” though it is an assumption at this point based on the announcement today that just said the machine and accessories.
The Stampin’ Trimmer is also being retired.
Currently we are allowed to buy three sets of blades for the trimmer. When the retirement list comes out on Monday, April 15th, we will be able to buy six sets until they are depleted. As always, they will be available as long as supplies last. I recommend stocking up on the blades and the Big Shot cutting pads. Stampin’ Up! is still working with the manufacturer so the new catalog will not have a die cutting and embossing machine. Until the new one becomes available we need to get supplies for what we have. Change is hard but it will be worth it! The Stamparatus is a cut above the competition and I am sure the new SU die cutting and embossing machine will be the same.
The ‘In Color’ inks, refills and paper will be the first to sell out so be sure you have the stock you want to carry forward.
I will post the retired list Monday so be watching!
