Over the last several months I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking when the 2013 Calendar and Note Pad Tins and the refills will be back, as well as the new Stampin’ Up! version of the tin. Due to the fact that we could not release the Stampin’ Up! version at the same time as the 2013 Calendar and Note Pad tin, we are excited to announce that we are extending the pre-order by one week, ending on Tueday August 7th, 2012 to enable anyone wanting to make the Stampin’ Up! version time to order their supplies.
*For Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators wanting to offer this as a class: as we do every year, we have re-designed the tin using all Stampin’ Up! products and have put together a cost analysis sheet and suggested pricing if you want to offer this as a class to your customers. If you have purchased any of the supplies through the Sunny Stampin’ Store to create this tin, you can email us to let us know you are a demonstrator, then we will send out the cost analysis sheet and suggested pricing to you. The suggested pricing will be assuming that the tins are being made using all SU product of course. I’d love it someone could do me a favour. There are a number of demos that have bought the calendar and note pad bundles every year. I can no longer announce it or let them know on the demo-only boards like Sudsol, and other yahoo groups, so if one of you could let those that might be interested know, I would appreciate it!
You can view a video on how Tracy created this calendar and note pad tin below.
I had the calendar that you see on the inside front cover of the tin (also shown below) custom-made so that it perfectly fit the inside of the tin. The calendars are 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″. The font used for the months and the date match the font used for the “just a note” on the front of the tin.
As you can see from the picture of the tin at the beginning of this post, and the picture below, I also had some note-pads custom designed to fit insite the tin. The notepads are 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. There’s 50 sheets on the notepad and the lines are black so they match with any color scheme.
As we did last year, we offering this in several options. Please note that these are ALL pre-orders – we have extended the pre-order date until Tuesday August 7th. Orders will start to ship at the end of August 2012 , in the order in which they were received. Because everything is custom-designed and manufactured, I don’t want to order too many and end up with hoards left over, or too little, and then run out. So make sure you have your order in by Tuesday August 7th, 2012.
There is a lot of info in this post, so please be sure you read it all!
One of the things I do have to give you a heads up about is shipping. As we are located in Canada, the most “cost-effective” option for shipping is Canada Post. I use that term loosly because it’s still not cheap. The only methods of shipping we offer are small packet air (which I don’t really recommend because it is not trackable) and expedited – which is trackable, and the fastest method. We used to offer a small packet surface option, but ran into too many problems with it being waaaaaaay too slow (as in at least 4 weeks to the US), and not trackable.
I do want to assure you that we only charge you what we are charged. We do not mark up shipping. Because we are a small company with small volumes of shipping we don’t qualify for some of those great shipping volume discounts that bigger stores get. If perchance you are overcharged (which we will only know when we start shipping the packages out), we will re-imburse you the difference. Shipping in Canada is based on weight and package size. Because of the weight in particular, for most of you, shipping is probably going to start at about $12 – $15. What I have found though is that the more you get, the better the deal. So if you only want one of’s I would recommend ordering as a group (with a friend or a few friends). So please be prepared.
So here’s what we have:
Calendar & Note Pad Tin Kit Pre-order – $17.95 CAN These kits include all the supplies needed to make the project shown in the picture below (pencil/pen colors will vary). You’ll receive a pdf handout with the kit and a link to page from which you can view a video on how it’s made. (This supplies for this kit are non-Stampin’ Up! supplies)
Calendar Bundle Pre-order – $7 Each bundle has 5 calendars
Note Pad Bundle Pre-order – $7 Each bundle has 5 note pads
Bundle of 5 tins Pre-order – $25 Each bundle includs five 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ tins
Once again, just a reminder, these are ALL pre-orders – we have extended our pre-order date until August 7th, due to the release of the Stampin’ Up! version. The orders will start to ship at the end of August 2012, in the order in which they were received.
