#172 – Online Extravaganza – November 19, 2017

We’re entering the “most wonderful time of the year,” and not just because of the holidays. For us, it’s because Online Extravaganza is starting tomorrow, Mon., Nov. 20, 2017.  During this promotion, we will have exclusive deals and sales available for limited times.

Our first incredible offering of this promotion will be the 24-hour stamp sale. Select stamp sets will be 20% off for the first 24 hours of Online Extravaganza.  Stamp Sale starts November 20 12:00 AM and ends November 20 11:59 PM.

To close out Online Extravaganza with a bang, we are offering a special 24-hour flash sale on November 27th, after other Online Extravaganza deals end on the 26th. We will provide more information on this flash sale, including marketing resources, later in the week. Make sure to check back here for the announcement and more details!

#170 – Star of Light – November 17, 2017

This is a fun swap card one of my suitemates received at OnStage (convention) this last weekend.  It is fun idea for those that choose to send out New Year cards or it would also be wonderful for a graduation.  You can never go wrong with the Large Letter and Numbers Framelits!   You can use them for so many different occasions!  Any of our foil papers would look great with this card.

Congratulations to Bobbi Triptow and Lori Marcantonio who were both able to pre-order the Stamparatus yesterday!  The first window of the pre-order was for 27,000 and we filled that in about 12 minutes.  I expected it to fill quickly, but that even surprised me!  The next two pre-order dates are listed below.

December 5–30, 2017 Approx. March 19, 2018
January 15–30, 2018 Approx. April 15, 2018

Thank you for all of your comments yesterday.  The winner for today’s drawing is:  Lori Marcantonio
Hope you had a great birthday yesterday!!!

Smiles to start your weekend.

Here is a picture someone sent me yesterday of a very large cat.  My oldest daughter, Janessa, suggested that was something Orion (one of our cats) could aspire to. #Oriongoals

Meet Charlie. The largest domestic feline Dr Siegert has seen in his 41 years of veterinary practice to date. Weighs 31 lbs. This is Charlie with his owner.

And here is our Orion.  I always thought he was so big, until I saw the picture of Charlie above.  Orion only weighs in at about 17 lbs.

#169 – Stamparatus Pre-Order Starts Today – November 16, 2017

The opportunity for the pre-order starts today (11/16/17 at 2 pm Mountain Time).  See more details below. If you have questions, please contact me (email/phone/messaging) and I will help you.  This is new to us as well, so I will be learning right with you.  🙂

Notes from SU Today:
There will be a big banner STAMPARATUS on my SHOPPING CART today starting at 2:00pm MT. There will be a clear RESERVE BUTTON

Click here to reserve your Stamparatus after 2 pm Mountain Time later today

There won’t be a notice when it’s getting close to selling out. We expect it to go quickly, so the urgency is already there. When it sells out, a big pop up will come on the screen
letting you know. This is the same for both the Demonstrator Web Site and the Customer Web Site.

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 3 tools per demonstrator and 1 tool per customer per reservation window.
  • You and your customers may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
November 16–30, 2017 Approx. February 1, 2018
December 5–30, 2017 Approx. March 19, 2018
January 15–30, 2018 Approx. April 15, 2018

Have more questions? We have answers.
Customer Stamparatus Launch Q & A

Q: How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; in this case, you will click the RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page.
For step-by-step
instructions, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers.

Q: What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?
A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, click Create Account on
the online store.

Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.

Q: Will the available-to-ship dates be the same for all markets?
A: Yes.

Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.

Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment and close your order, the system will charge your credit card.

Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?
A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.

Q: Will I be able to update my address and credit card information when I open my shopping bag to complete my order?
A: Yes.

Q: What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?
A: You can cancel your reservation at any time. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your
Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers PDF.

Q: Will the tool be available in the 2018–2019 annual catalog?
A: Yes. Once the annual catalog ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the number of tools you can order.

Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?
A: Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability
depending on demand.

Q: When I close my order, can I take advantage of current Stampin’ Up! promotions?
A: Yes.  For example, the first availability is estimated to be around Feb. 1st, during Saleabration (SAB).  The Stamparatus is $49 net, so if you add at least $1 more to your order then you could choose a SAB item FREE.  Win – Win!!!

Q: Can I participate in all three reservation periods?
A: Yes.

Q: How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window?
A: For customers, there is a limit of 1 per reservation window.

Q: How did we come up with the name Stamparatus?
A: We landed on an innovative name by combining two words that speak to the end use of the tool as well as Stampin’ Up! branding.

Stamp: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on
a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked block or die or other instrument
Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a
particular activity or purpose
Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus

Product Features & Benefits

It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

I need product details!

Okay…that was a lot of information, but this is an exciting new tool for us!!!

Winner from yesterday’s drawing…Susan Corsello

She will receive a hand-stamped card from On-Stage.
Be sure to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing for the next day.

If you are able to pre-register for a Stamparatus later today (after 2 pm Mountain time :), put that in the comment line.  I will be doing a special drawing for those who place pre-orders!

I’m so excited about this new product!   It is like an early Christmas that comes during Saleabration! 🙂
