Discontinuation of the Stampin' Trimmer

Yesterday, all Stampin’ Up! demos globally heard the news that the Stampin’  Trimmer paper cutter is being retired from 3rd June 2019 and will not be carried over into the new annual catalogue.  The reasons for this is that there have been supply issues for the blades for some time and there was also a batch of faulty blades. Although Stampin’ Up! have been working with the manufacturer to resolve this issue they were still unable to order enough to sustain our stock requirements or resolve the issues they had.
Stampin’ Up! has therefore taken the decision to retire the trimmer and its accessories including the scoring and cutting blades whilst they research a brand new replacement trimmer.  They have not made this decision lightly. At the moment there is no date for the launch of a new paper cutter/trimmer but I will endeavour to keep you up to date as we hear more.


While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalogue, Stampin’ Up have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory to help during this transition.  But please be aware that this news could cause faster inventory depletion.
The trimmer blades are currently out of stock - I encourage you to go to the item in my shop (just click on image below) and enter your email when requested to be kept informed of when they arrive back into stock.

When the retiring list goes live on 15 April, the order limit for the blades, once back in stock, will be six packs (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September,  intermittent shipments from the supplier will be received. Throughout these months, it is anticipated that there will be times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder).
I know that so many of you love our Stampin’ Trimmer – I love mine - but Stampin' Up! are committed to being able to supply products of the highest quality and ensure they can meet the demand.  I am hopeful for what is coming and will keep you posted of updates as I receive them.
