VIDEO: What you need to know about retiring In Colors


One of the many awesome features of Stampin Up products is our color coordination. Everything matches, it’s like Gar-animals. Remember those clothes when we were kids? The monkey tags went with the monkeys, making it easy to dress your kids in matching clothes. Stampin up is like the Gar-animals of paper crafts lol. Stampin Up has 5 Color Collections: Regals, Subtles, Brights, Neutrals and In Colors.

The In Color collection is a little different from our Core Collection. Each year 5 of these 10 colors go away, and we get 5 new colors. It’s a great way to introduce fresh and trendy colors.

The In Color Collections are named by the year they were introduced and the year they will be retired. For example the collection retiring this spring is named 2016-2018 In Colors. They are retired with the Annual Catalog in the spring. This year’s catalog will be officially retiring May 31, 2018 (marked on the back of the annual catalog).

You can find (and request) the Catalogs online on my  blog under the CATALOGS AND RESOURCES tab.

The official date of the 2018 Retiring List announcement has not been made yet. Probably will be the end of April or May. Currently, I do not know what else is retiring, nor have the new collection of In colors been announced. I’ll post this info as soon as it’s announced.

I’m giving you this head’s up so you can start budgeting your purchases and collecting the products you want with these colors before they sell out. They often sell out within days of the Retirement list being announced.

I recommend stocking up on these products now, especially ink pad refills and card stock. This way, you’ll have everything you need when the list is announced and won’t have to worry about quick sell-outs.
