It really comes down to the fact that Stampin Up is experiencing challenges with their supplier. Its been hard to get blades and accessories for a while. We’ve been able to work through it so far but its been difficult. Therefore, Stampin Up is working with a new supplier and a more direct relationship. I know this doesn’t help solve your problem now.
But as you can see from Stampin’ Ups! official statement below, it does appear that the blades will come back in stock at various times from now until September. They also give demonstrators and customers the option to add their email address and be added to a notification list when the products come back in stock. See picture below.
So, we don’t know when they will be back in stock, but I’ve put my email on that list so that I will get notified that they’re back in stock. Once I’m notified I will let you know.
If you are interested, below is Stampin Up’s official statement regarding this issue.
Thank you for being a loyal customer of Brandy’s Cards. I’m grateful for you and your business. Please let me know if you have further questions. I’m always glad to help.
We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.
While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.
