Salsa Stamper! New things, Changes, and a Reminder

New Boxes for Wood-Mount Stamps:  Introducing our new wood-mount stamp set packaging! These new cases are similar to our clear-mount boxes and fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them. They also have the images and stamp set name on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier!

Starting May 31 all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging (sneak peek sets will also be in the new boxes during the preorder). And empty cases will be available with the launch of the new catalog. That means you can transfer all your old sets to these new boxes! There will even be a template for you to create your own label for your old stamp sets (available May 31). A pack of four half-size cases (3-3/4" x 5-1/2") will sell for $4.95 and a pack of four full-size cases (7-1/2" x 5-1/2") will be $6.95.

Check out this Stampin' Up video for a peek on how they look.

New Photopolymer Stamp Set: Another set has been released, called Bombs Away Birthday Set!  A flyer is below, and you can see it in the new arrivals through my link to the SU page (click on Shop Now, then click on New Arrivals).

Retiring Colors, Returning Colors:  As I blogged earlier, Stampin' Up is retiring ten colors from the color suites (Brights, Subtles, Regals, and Neutrals), and bringing nine colors in to the suites from the In Colors and a new color.  Here is a chart to sort out the changes:

Retiring Colors Reminder:  For all SU products affected by the retiring colors, what is in the warehouse is what will be available.  A list of affected products was posted in a previous blog.  You can see it here
