Stampin' Blendabilities Markers Discontinued
There has been quality issues with the Stampin' Blendabilities Marker line. 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 Stampin' Up! is certain would meet our 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.
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 continue to be available for purchase. (The Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad is my personally my favorite go-to black ink.)
Q: What are the quality problems with this product?
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. For me, I've only experience a couple of markers drying out, and a few customers have experienced that as well.
Q: What if I have Blendabilities markers that are defective?
A: If you ordered them with me, please email me and I will take care of you! If you ordered through my online site you will be receiving an email from Stampin' Up.
Personal Note: As disappointed as I am that Stampin' Up! will no longer be carrying this product, I'm proud to be associated with a company committed t0 quality and that is brave enough to pull a popular product due to quality issues.
