We are so excited about our new release coming up next Thursday night! And one of the things that everyone LOVES about Gina K. Designs is our One free with 3 stamp set.
Each month, we offer a stamp sets valued at $19.95 that you can get for free with the purchase of any three full size stamp sets. (Three mini sets, duos and singles equals ONE full size set for this promotion.)
This month's set is full of love, friendship, sweets and tweets!
Stay tuned tomorrow because we will have more sneak peeks and a couple of illustrator card projects to share with you as well!!
Shipping update from our year end clearance sale
We know TONS of you ordered a total of thousands of stamp sets from our year end clearance sale. At 40% off, many of you took advantage of that great offer and lots of you have upwards of 16 stamp sets in your orders! We wanted to let you know that, all of those stamp sets were rubber so it is taking MUCH longer than we anticipated to get them all produced so shipped to you.
Our clear stamps are ordered from a huge manufacturer who can mass produce them very quickly, however, all of our rubber stamps are produced here in our little factory. We can produce LOTS of rubber, very quickly, but our cutting machine can only do between one and eight stamp sets at a time. So that is where the delay is. We know you love the precut rubber and we won't send anything but the highest quality precut rubber stamps to you, but it may take a while longer to process your orders.Well, maybe a lot longer.
Tom asked his cousin Mike to come up from Milwaukee to help get them done faster. Mike showed up yesterday, suitcase in hand, and I haven't seen either Tom or Mike since he arrived yesterday morning. They camped at the factory overnight in a tent, taking small shifts and alternating with half hour naps here and there but they don't plan on stopping until we get caught up.
Numbers wise, the sale was about 4-5 times as many orders as our usual release. We did expect high volume because of the great prices but not that much. For that, we say THANK YOU! You are the BEST customers in the world and we appreciate your support more than you will EVER know! But, we also want to say we are SO sorry that you have to wait so long to get these stamps. I'm a stamper too and once I hit the place order button... well... I want it NOW!!
So thank you so much for your patience. We won't send you anything but the best and we hope that the beautiful images along with the great prices will make it all worth the wait.
Also, we don't charge your credit card until we are ready to ship your order, so if you chose the credit card option instead of paypal, you may not have seen the charge come through yet. (Paypal charges you right away.) But we promise, we are working as quickly as we can.
Now, I'm heading over to the facility to take breakfast and coffee to my two favorite guys and make sure nobody fell asleep at the cutter.
And one more note- this setback will NOT delay your new release items from shipping due to the high level of clear stamp sales instead of rubber. (We can handle that ourselves without the machines!)
More sneak peeks tomorrow~ stay tuned!
