Hi Everyone! Sorry for the lack of blogging over the past few weeks, it’s been the busiest month we have ever had here at Visible Image, and there has been no time for anything except making, cutting and packaging our gorgeous stamps!
We had a very successful show on Create and Craft TV, followed by a brilliant time at the UK trade show!
However, this has meant that we have been absolutely inundated with orders so we need to make A VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!
Due to the extremely high demand for our stamps over the past month, we have made the very difficult decision to place all our stamps ‘out of stock’ for the rest of this month to enable us to catch up and clear the backlog of orders…
Working within the craft industry is always incredibly busy… between craft shows, TV shows, demos, all the designing for new releases, marketing, and everything else in between! But, when you are also manufacturing your own products as well, it’s a whole different story….
As you may know, there is just the 2 of us here at Visible Image.. designing, making, hand-cutting and packaging all our stamps, and dispatching all the orders. And, although we have been working late into the night and during weekends, we still have a very large number of stamps to make, and we do not feel that it would be right to take any more orders and keep our lovely customers waiting for up to a month for their stamps. That’s just not the kind of people we are!
We hope that you can understand the situation we find ourselves in… It is great that our designs are loved all over the world now, but we definitely need to make some changes to ensure that we can cope with the volume of orders we are now receiving. We have plans in place… and will be making some of these exciting changes soon!
We apologise to anyone who has been waiting longer than 10 working days for their order, and we assure you that we are making them as quickly as we possibly can. A huge number were dispatched this week and many more will be posted this weekend.
Our awesome Design Team will continue to inspire you every day with their gorgeous cards and projects, come and join our Facebook group to see what they have been creating! Or check out their blogs HERE!
‘Normality’ will resume here as soon as possible!
It really is an extraordinary situation we find ourselves in… we are so incredibly happy that you are loving what we do, and that so many more people are discovering us every day now! We’d like to thank everyone who has placed an order, and we know you will love creating with our designs. We hope you think they are worth waiting for… the general opinion over on Facebook when we made this same announcement was definitely YES! 🙂
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this very busy time. We have lots of exciting new plans for this year! We will of course keep you updated and let you know when you can start ordering again!
We have been instructed by a huge number of customers to take a DAY OFF! So, this Sunday we shall be having a family day with these gorgeous girlies…
Bethan and Katie (age 15 & 13), who have been dreadfully neglected of late! And before we know it they will be all grown up and have gone off to University!!!
We will be back refreshed and raring to go on Monday for another crazy busy week!
We’ll also be back here on the blog this weekend with some of the latest Design Team inspiration to keep you inspired.
Make sure you show us what you have been creating with our stamps and MDF Monoliths too… our monthly ‘Show & Tell’ challenge is running over in our Facebook group… your chance to win a £25 voucher to spend on our stamps (next month!).
Thank you for taking time to read this post.
Bye for now!
Mark & Helen xx
