After a few turbulent weeks of product returns and customer complaints at Stampin’ Up!, they have decided to discontinue the entire Blendabilities alcohol program from their product line, effective immediately.
Stampin’ Up! had been doing an extensive product investigation after receiving continuous complaints about markers leaking out or drying up. While they were investigating these complaints with the manufacture it was identified that a consistent manufacturing defect which results in alcohol evaporation from the Blendability mold can’t be resolved at this time.
As the manufacturer is unable to rectify this problem in a manner that would meet Stampin' Up!'s high quality standards and provide a stable, long term solution, it was decided by Stampin’ Up! to completely discontinue the Blendabilities product line from their offerings.
If you are one of my customers who have recently placed an order and are awaiting the delivery of any Blendabilities products, then you need to contact me to discuss the alternatives. For example, if you’ve chosen Blendabilities as your Sale-A-Bration Freebie, then you will be able to choose an alternative Sale-a-Bration item. But I'll need to know as soon as possible as Sale-A-Bration items are only available as long as supplies last and until the end of March 2015.
I understand the disappointment and frustration this news may bring, after all, I’m feeling it too, but I also understand that Stampin’ Up! has made the move with your best interests in mind, and will come up with alternatives some time down the road.
