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. See the color chart below for the full collection.
The In Color collection is a little different from our Core Collection. It’s broken down into 2 groups of 5. 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 year is named 2017-2019 In Colors. They are retired with the Annual Catalog officially retiring June 3, 2019 (the date is marked on the back of the annual catalog). Once announced, these retiring In Color products will be “whiles supplies last” and often sell out quickly. See the video below for full details.
I’m giving you this head’s up so you can start budgeting your purchases and collecting the In color products you want now. I recommend stocking up on ink pad refills and card stock in these colors now. This way you won’t have to worry about quick sell-outs and missing out on your fav colors. Some of these products will sell out within days of the Retirement list being announced. A full list of products containing these colors is on the “What you need to know” video, and also listed below.

When will the 2019 retirement list be announced?
Both the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog & the Occasions Catalog will be ending on June 3. The list of products that will be discontinued (not carried over into the new catalog) is called the “Retirement List”. The official date of this year’s retirement list release has not been announced, but it will most likely be in mid-April. I do not know what else is retiring yet. I’ll post this info as soon as it’s announced.
Where can I find the Stampin’ Up! catalogs?
