Hey there! Stampin' Up! posted the Retiring List for the Annual and Occasions Catalogs yesterday afternoon, and with just about any Retiring List, there are always some big questions and possible glitches, so I decided to wait until this morning to post about it.
The big change Stampin' Up! has been working on since the beginning of January is to eliminate wood-mount and clear-mount red rubber stamps; converting all red rubber to a new attachment medium called "cling". Cling is far superior to the previous clear-mount because it has a stickiness built in to the picture sticker you put on the back of the stamp. Cling stamps are still the high quality red rubber Stampin' Up! has been famous for during the 30 years they've been in business!
Stampin' Up! will no longer carry any wood-mount red rubber stamps, with the exception of a few background stamps in North America.
Stampin' Up! will continue to offer some stamp sets in the high quality clear photopolymer too.
Here's a little video from Stampin' Up! with more info about Cling-mount stamps:
When you look at the retiring list it may look as if almost ALL of the stamps in the current catalogs are retiring, but they are not. Many sets are merely being "reconfigured" into "cling" mount.
