Product Update - The Stampin' Trimmer Will No Longer Be Available after 3rd June


Stampin' Up! yesterday announced that the Stampin' Trimmer is to be discontinued from the 3rd June 2019.  They have taken the decision to cease supplying the Stampin' Trimmer due to unresolved issues with the manufacturer regarding both the supply and also inconsistency in the quality of the blades. Therefore the trimmer and all its accessories is to be withdrawn from supply by Stampin' Up! and we await notification of an alternative, suitable paper cutter replacement.

If you own a Stampin' Trimmer, my advice is to consider ordering replacement blades when they are available.   Stocks for these are currently depleted, although they will be re-stocked prior to the retirement of the Stampin' Trimmer.   Stampin' Up! have ordered what they considered to be adequate supplies to cover the six months between now and September.

The Retiring List will be issued on 15 April, and we are informed that the order limit for replacement blades will be six packs per order.  From now until September, Stampin' Up! will be in receipt of intermittent shipments from the supplier.  During this time, it is anticipated there will be times when the blades will not be available to order, nor will they be offered as a backorder. 

So, if during these times you create an order, and try to add the blades you will be advised they are out of stock, but you will also receive a prompt to enter your email address, so that you can be notified when the blades will be available for you to order.  I would encourage you to add your email details in order for you to be updated when the time comes.  

Alternatively, please contact me and I will be happy to add you to my list of customers to be contacted once stocks of the blades have been replenished.

The Product List below gives details of the Stampin' Trimmer and all its accessories which are to be retired from sale from 3rd June.

I am sure that many of you will be as disappointed in this news as I am, but I do understand that as a company with great integrity, Stampin' Up! prides itself in meeting customer expectations in terms of both supply and consistent high quality, and I am sure that it is a decision that has not been taken lightly.

Thank you for taking the time to read and digest this information.

Bye for now.

  2. I totally agree! I bought the trimmer as I thought it was great quality, combined cutting and scoring, and would be around for a long time. Now I find out that it is being retired. I will get rid of the one I have and go back to using my execution style cutter and a separate scorer. Thanks Stampin Up, that's progress.
