It's a Color Revamp!

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review the color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!  In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, they decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.  With this revamp, you’ll not only have new products, but also have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting. 

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.  In order to keep the color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, they moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. They've also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!  Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below.  New colors are available beginning June 1.

There are no changes to the In Color program. Every two years they will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.

In addition to new colors, they also redesigned the ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they've improved the formula of the ink, as well! Click here to learn more about the new ink.

*Please note that while Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, it will continue to be available as part of our core color collection.

Whenever colors are retired, there is always some confusion about the status of various products in those colors. We wanted to be sure that our customers have a chance to buy retiring ink pads and refills before they are gone. They have worked with their vendors to ensure that we have a period of guaranteed stock before the retirement date. This means that even if an ink pad/refill goes on backorder during that guaranteed time, those orders will be fulfilled.  However, after that guarantee date has passed, those products in retiring colors are available while supplies last. Please see the chart below that details this. It also shows how other products with retiring colors will be handled.
