Close to my Heart announced a large list of retiring items this week! Download CTMH Retired List 2011
Some CTMH customers were alarmed and message boards & yahoo groups have been buzzing. However, this post from Splitcoast Stampers indicates there is no cause for concern. Message board member Cheryl says,
They are revamping how they release new product. In order to have more new product in each catalog (and they are going to a bi-annual release in 2011, by the way), each B&T paper pack will only be available during the 6 months the catalog is live. When the catalog goes away, so does the B&T paper and My Stickease featured in it. In otherwords, get it while it's hot! I was a little shocked when I first saw the retiring list, but after reading through the explanation from the corporate office, it is a sound financial decision. Older papers never make the same profit as repeat ones, plus it's harder to estimate how much you'll need to print, etc. The albums are being replaced by new ones that will be featured in the catalog that goes live on September 1st.
