Hi, There, Stampers!
I’m sure by now that you’ve heard or read about Stampin’ Up!’s new product offerings called, “Online Exclusives.” Stampin’ Up! has initiated this program so that it can respond more quickly to relevant trends in the crafting world. Because it’s a totally new offering by Stampin’ Up!, I’d like to take this opportunity to explain what it is and how it works.
Online Exclusives in a Nutshell
What They Are. Online Exclusives are products that Stampin’ Up! will offer ONLY online. You won’t see any of these products in their print catalogs. You may already know that the Kit Collection are online only. But now there will be a complete line of Stampin’ Up! products online only – stamp sets, papers, embellishments and more.
Where You Can Find Them Online. When you shop Stampin’ Up!’s online store, you’ll find a drop-down list of “departments” in that store. Look down the list and you’ll see Online Exclusives. You may notice that there’s no breakout of types of products for that category. That’s because all current Stampin’ Up! products that are available online only, kits included, are in this category. Click on that link and shop!
How You Will Know What’s Available. Online Exclusive products will not have a set end date, and some will only be available “while supplies last.” If you see a product listed in the store, it’s available for purchase, if not immediately, then in the future. If a product sells out and it’s not a “while supplies last” product, it will still be listed. But that product will have the words, “Currently Unavailable,” in red under the product description. If a “while supplies last” product sells out, it will not be listed.
When New Online Exclusive Products Will Be Released. New Online Exclusive products will be released at the beginning of the months of March, July and November. This is part of a complete revision to their product release strategy. So expect some fun new products all through the year on a regular schedule from now on!
How Will Online Exclusives Affect Stampin’ Up!’s Catalogs?
Catalogs will still be the main resource to know what Stampin’ Up! is offering. We’ll still have their Annual Catalog (coming out in May!), as well as seasonal Mini Catalogs.
