THE COLORS ARE EVOLVING!
The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, we review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!
In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, we decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.
With this revamp, you’ll not only have new products, but also have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting. Read on for more information!
There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.
In order to keep our color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, we moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. We’ve also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!
Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. These changes were based on needing to maintain color balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.
There are no changes to the In Color program. Every two years we will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.
We also have previous In Colors that are returning and joining our core colors:
- Mossy Meadow
- Poppy Parade
- Flirty Flamingo
- Coastal Cabana
- Mint Macaron
- Blackberry Bliss

In addition to new colors, we also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and we’ve improved the formula of the ink, as well!

Remaining on trend and up-to-date with new products is one of the most important parts of a business and this color revamp does just that. For people who love to create, a bigger variety of products and fresh, vibrant colors allow you to stretch your creativity and engage your senses in pushing your crafting limits.

Whenever colors are retired, there is always some confusion about the status of various products in those colors. We wanted to be sure that our customers have a chance to buy retiring ink pads and refills before they are gone. We have worked with our vendors to ensure that we have a period of guaranteed stock before the retirement date. This means that even if an ink pad/refill goes on backorder during that guaranteed time, those orders will be fulfilled.
However, after that guarantee date has passed, those products in retiring colors are available while supplies last. Please see the chart below that details this. It also shows how other products with retiring colors will be handled.
