Hi, your next opportunity to reserve the brand new Stamparatus is here! Things have changed a little since my first announcement about the Stamparatus.
The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes!! Yes, that is right! 15 minutes! Based on the speed of the sellout as well as feedback from Demonstrators and Customers alike, Stampin’ Up! has made some very important adjustments to the reservation process.
The second reservation window will remain open from 6–31 December; however, during this reservation period, Stampin’ up! will take as many orders as they receive (yay!) and not close the window until 31 December. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!
Please note the following changes:
- Beginning 19 March, Stampin’ Up! will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in the warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the 6–31 December window will ship on 19 March (as was previously announced).
- In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
- Because Stampin’ Up! is not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, a third reservation window will no longer be offered.
- This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018–2019 annual catalogue.
Please note what has not changed:
- If you reserved more than one stamping tool during the first reservation period, that number will not change; you will still receive the same number you reserved.
- If you reserved one or more stamping tool(s) during the first reservation period, you may still order during the second window.
- The reservation window will open at 8:00 AM (AEDT) on 6 December.
