Big News!! Stampin’ Up! has just announced that they’ll be transitioning to a new manufacturer for their dies and embossing folders moving forward!
Stampin’ Up! is moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means they’ll work directly with the factories who manufacture their dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories (so – eliminating the middle-man!). This gives them greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Always a GOOD thing!
TRANSITION TO NEW DIE-CUTTING AND EMBOSSING LINE
Here’s a look at how this transition will unfold

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation
Stampin’ Up! will be retiring the Stampin’ Trimmer as of 3 June 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. As most of you know, they’ve experienced challenges with their supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which won’t be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There’ll be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but they do not currently have an estimated timeframe.
While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, Stampin’ Up! has ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help customers during this transition away from the current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion.
