Yay!! I finally had the opportunity to visit the Stampin’ Up! headquarters in Riverton, Utah and I am so excited to share my experience and tour of the facility with you. It’s is amazing!! I had to take my picture with this fabulous rock that says “Stampin’ Up!” It’s located at the entrance of the facility. And what a GREAT Welcome!! Several Stampin’ Up! Staff members greeted us upon arrival.
With beautiful plant life and a two-story, red-rock water fountain designed to remind them of their southern Utah heritage, The Atrium is a wonderful place to spend breaks or dine in style with friends for lunch. The second level of The Atrium serves as our main entrance and reception area. Here you get a bird’s eye view of the exquisite atrium, water fountain, and the gorgeous mountains that surrounds us.
Next we took a walk down memory lane to learn more about the Stampin’ Up! story from their humble beginning in Shelli’s living room in Las Vegas, NV, to their home in Riverton, Utah. Here you can see the first catalog. Wow… Stampin’ Up! has come a long way!! You can also enjoy the beautifully stamped Definitely Decorative displays created by the Stampin’ Up! Concept artists.
I loved the Idea Room!! When you walk into this room you feel your creative juices begin to flow. Stampin’ Up! designed this room to help employees “Think outside of the Box.” A conference room at one end is designed for creative brainstorming sessions, and there’s room for a lot of ideas on those floor-to-ceiling whiteboards wall.
I need to remember the Brainstorming Rules. I really need to be reminded of the bullet point that says… Stay Focused on the Topic. I love to chat and I can get long winded. Good thing my peeps still love me!! My favorite bullet point is: Be Visual!
Tonya and I decided to chill in the Idea Room!! I need one of these ginormous bean bags in my craft room. If I had one, my creative juices would start flowing… or I would fall asleep!! LOL!!
Inventory is brought to the Distribution Center from the Kanab manufacturing plant to be stored until orders are filled. The state of the art facility provides timely order fulfillment throughout the United States and Canada. Shelli put special effort into making this a pleasant place to work. She had the entire warehouse painted white and skylights installed to make the area brighter. Music is piped through the warehouse each day. In addition, the warehouse is ergonomically friendly with little or no lifting of boxes required. You’ll see the pick-to-light system, which has dramatically increased accuracy.
