Couture Cardstock unexpectedly posted their last blog post (here) this evening…
Cardstock Warehouse Paper Company, Inc, the parent company of Couture Cardstock, has this week concluded an acquisition agreement with a distributor. The resulting sale of Cardstock Warehouse Paper Company, IncÃ¢â‚¬Â assets has caused a major reorganization of Cardstock Warehouse Paper Company, Inc. This reorganization has lead to the immediate end of Couture CardstockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s existence as a wholesale or distribution entity. This unfortunately also makes the staff of Couture Cardstock, including its President, customer service agents, designers and design team coordinators no longer necessary.
Though this will be our last post on the Couture Cardstock blog, we would like to express our strong appreciation for our many wonderful customers and the fantastic partnerships we forged with our partner manufacturers. We consider ourselves blessed to have worked with such a great administrative and artistic staff and wish them each every success in the future. It is the intent of Cardstock Warehouse Paper Company, Inc. to continue to sell directly to the consumer on www.couturecardstock.com though a Design Team, blog and the previous customer service department will no longer be available.
Wow! I knew that CC had recently decided not to renew their advertising at PaperCrafter's Corner …. and I"d noticed their ad had disappeared from Nancy Nally's Scrapbook Update site as well (one that I visit regularly.) Due to those "clues," I was expecting some changes at CC… just not changes of this particular nature!
Couture Cardstock officially hit the scene in November 2009 and made an immediate good impression on those "in the industry" with a fantastic booth at CHA Winter 2010 and a top-notch design team. However, I hadn't yet heard much about them from regular crafters. We'll be curious to see where Cardstock Warehouse takes Couture Cardstock from here.
