With the upcoming Color Renovation, Stampin' Up! is already experiencing some backorder situations on reinkers as well as cardstock.
For the reinkers, they are filling the orders as fast as they can. Once June 1st rolls around, the reinkers will be available on a while supplies last basis (i.e. no backorders).
The cardstock situation poses an interesting problem. Although Stampin' Up! forecasted a large need for these retiring colors, they didn't expect the response they have been seeing since the Color Renovation announcement was made.
If you place an order for retiring cardstock, Stampin' Up! is going to try to fill that order for you. If the cardstock you ordered is unavailable, Stampin' Up! will substitute textured cardstock (in that same color) for the same exact price. If you haven't tried the textured cardstock, it really is beautiful and adds such an elegant touch to your projects.
Stampin' Up! will not be announcing when they've run out of smooth cardstock and transitioning over to the textured for a particular color.
I know this is not the ideal situation, but Stampin' Up! is really trying to get you as much of your retired favorites as they can.
If you know that you would like a certain color that is going to be retired, please place your order as soon as you can. The colors are going to sell out quickly, and I don't want you to miss out on your favorites.
