While I did not invest as heavily as some in the Blendabilities markers, I did enjoy them as 'coloring' is one of my favorite Stampin' Techniques. Please read the message straight from Stampin' Up! below and know that they will never ever sell you a product that is not, or cannot continue to be, up to their standards.
You are no doubt very much aware of the product quality concerns we’ve
been experiencing with Blendabilities, and we thank you for your
patience as we’ve worked through this sensitive issue.
We’ve done everything possible to work with our manufacturer, but with
no solution in sight, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to
permanently discontinue this popular product line.
We’ve created a video
which we hope will communicate our feelings about this subject—as well
as our desire to do everything we can to make things right for you and
your customers. We have also provided you with a Q & A
in the hopes that this will answer any additional questions or concerns you may have.
We appreciate your support as we continue to look for products that
will meet our customer’s needs and provide you with the quality that you
have come to expect from Stampin’ Up!
