Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker Update

Blendabilities image

There have been some quality issues with the Stampin’ Blendabiities Marker line. And due to the nature of the defect that is being caused during manufacturing, Stampin’ Up! has concluded that the problems will only continue to become more widespread. Since the manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a way that Stampin’ Up! feels would meet quality standards  and also provide a stable, long term solution, they have decided to discontinue the line. This decision was made by Stampin’ Up! after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment with this product.

Blendabilities Q & A

Q: Will the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad Refill (item #133456) still be available for purchase?

A: Yes. These items will also be featured in this year’s 2015–2016 annual catalog. (The Tuxedo Black Memento is personally my favorite black ink product and I use it all the time for my projects.)

Q: What are the quality problems with this product line?

A: 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.

Q: Are all Blendabilities markers defective?

A: No. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended. (I myself have only experienced a few markers drying out.)

Q: What if your Blendabilities Markers are defective? 

A: If you ordered markers from me, please email or call me.

On a personal note, I’ve cried a few tears over this announcement myself since I’ve loved having this coloring option too. But as disappointed as I am that the line has been discontinued and Stampin’ Up! will no longer be caring this product, I’m proud to be associated with a company who has high quality standards and is concerned enough to pull a very popular item when it has issues.  And of course we still have a number of different coloring options available that I’m sure you’ll enjoy using for your projects.

The good news is that Stampin’ Up! realizes that we loved this coloring option and so will continue working to bring this product option to us in the future.

3/13/2015 Update: it is my understanding that Stampin’ Up! is currently working to find a new manufacturer for our Blendabilities line.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

If you have purchased Stampin’ Blendabilities you should have already received an email from me if not please let me know.
