Blendabilities Product Line Has Been Discontinued
A number of you have experienced quality issues with the Blendabilities product line, which has resulted in frustration. Due to the nature of the defect, Stampin’ Up! has concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that they are certain would meet their high quality standards and provide us with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.
The problem is when the tip is welded to the barrel, the welding process can leave microscopic (invisible) holes in the marker tip. This leads to accelerated evaporation of the alcohol in the ink. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended. Not all Blendabilities have this defect.
If you have purchased Blendabilities less than 90 days ago, please check all of them to make sure they are not dry. If you have used them and they were fine, then there is nothing for you to do. Stampin’ Up asks that you use your best judgment to determine whether your product is in good condition or if you need a refund.
Stampin’ Up! realizes that their Blendabilities line was very popular and are working on finding a replacement.
With Blendabilities no longer available as a Sale-A-Bration option, it is anticipated that the demand on other Sale-A-Bration items will be higher than forecasted. For that reason, all Sale-A-Bration items (with the exception of stamps) will now be “while supplies last.” The Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad Refill (item #133456) are still available for purchase.
