The biggest question that many have when there are colors retiring is...why??
In a nutshell (as quoted from the Stampin' Up! demonstrator website)...We retired colors based on sales history and focus group feedback. We also looked at our overall color offering and determined what colors were not working with others.We sent out surveys, looked at trends, and determined what colors are out of date, etc.
Beginning April 4, 2013 all retiring/discontinued color products (ie ink, paper, accessories, ribbon, etc.) will only be available while supplies last. This means that some of these products will not be available through the retired list period, so be sure to act fast!
I hope that you will get excited with me as we look forward to the new 2013-2014 catalog being released in June 2013!! Can't wait for all of the fun new goodies I get to share!!
