November 2018 VIP Host Code: CQHEC9EJ
The biggest announcement during OnStage was that our red rubber products (wood-mount and clear-mount stamps) will no longer be manufactured. Instead, a new red rubber product, called cling-mount, will be available in addition to Photopolymer stamps. We first introduced cling mount stamps in Japan starting with the 2018 annual catalog and found that the new stamp line was a smashing success. We are excited to offer cling stamps in all other markets beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.
Here’s a cute little commercial that debuted at OnStage last week.
Important product transition details:
- Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available in either cling or photopolymer.
- Stamps in the 2018-2019 (current) annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
- Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog (which is retiring in May 2019) that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog. Watch for more information about carryover stamp sets in April 2019 with the regularly scheduled communication about catalog transitions, the carryover list, and the retiring products list.
- In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.

Why has Stampin’ Up decided to discontinue wood-mount stamp sets?
Wood-mount stamp set sales have been steadily declining for several years. Stampin’ Up! research and sales teams took this and several other factors into consideration before discontinuing wood-mount stamps. We are confident the transition to cling stamps will be beneficial in many ways for demonstrators, customers, and the company.
