This just in from Stampin' Up!
PUNCH CADDIES NOT AVAILABLE
August 20, 2010
As you know, the Punch Caddy is listed in the new Idea Book & Catalog (pg. 200) as “Coming soon.” We are disappointed to report, however, that due to serious production and quality issues with the manufacturer, we will not be able to offer the Punch Caddies at all. And because the manufacturer will likely not be able to meet our quality standards for the Punch Caddy in the future, we do not have any plans to offer a revised or equivalent product in its place.
As the situation unfolded, we consulted with demonstrators to see what they thought and we received some comforting words from Mary Polcin. “I’d much rather know now that there is a problem than let them get into my customers’ hands,” Mary said. “I am very glad that Stampin’ Up! is dealing with this now rather than later.”
I agree with Mary. I'd much rather the caddies not be available than to have them fall apart after you spent good money on them. I hope SU will be able to resolve the issue soon. In the meantime, I guess we'll just have to keep storing them in drawers, shoeboxes and hanging shoe holders.
Also these items are not here yet but should be in soon.
Watercolor Wonder Crayons: All Watercolor Wonder Crayons were delayed due to a relocation of the supplier. We are happy to announce that these are now under production, and we will let you know when they are available for order.
Rub-Ons: We are still experiencing quality problems with our new Rub-Ons, and the following Rub-Ons are not currently available:
119250 - Bday Party
119249 - Holly & Jolly
