Stampin’ Up! recently announced big changes to the current colour families.
My first thoughts were how can they make such big changes but after looking at how they have chosen the new colours it is making alot of sense.
These changes will commence on 1 September 2010 in Australia.
If you have some favourites (like me) that are disappearing and you just can’t live without them, I would suggest stocking up on Ink Refills and Cardstock.
Below is some information from Stampin’ Up!
"We are excited to bring to you a new world of colour in Stampin’ Up!’s Colour Renovation. For over two years, we have done extensive research including investigating colour trends in the fashion, home décor, and crafting industries, and have conducted focus groups involving demonstrators, customers, and Stampin’ Up! experts. We have found that it was time to update our colours so that you have a fresh, on-trend colour palette to work with! We have learned from our successful In Color programme that you love getting new colours, and your customers love them too.
The new colour palette is organized into four collections: Subtles, Brights, Regals, and Neutrals. You will see 25 of our current colours remaining, and ten past In Colors returning as core colours, and the addition of five new core colours. Check the colour charts to see what the new collections look like, and what colours will be retiring.
New In Color ProgrammeOne part of our Colour Renovation that we’re sure you’re going to love is the new In Color programme! Each year we will introduce five new In Colors, and they will remain for two years. This means that the 2010-2011 In Colors will be introduced this year, but will not be retired until the 2012-2013 colours are introduced. This year there will be only be five In Colors, but after that, we will always have ten (the previous year’s plus the new). Look for a later announcement on this year’s In Colors.
At Stampin’ Up!®, colour is part of our identity. It’s fundamental to your ability to create and be creative. That also means that it’s important for you to be able to stay up-to-date with the trends in colour to keep both your artwork and your business fresh and exciting. That’s why we’ve worked to present you with the Colour Renovation—a refreshing, updated colour palette! The new colour collections combine current colours with previous In Colors, and five new colours. These luscious collections give you new and vibrant choices, keeping your papercrafting passion original and exciting. You’ll want to mix and match for your favourite combinations, and make the Colour Renovation work for you!"
