I wanted to make it clear that The Stamping Bazaar is still up and running, no small thanks to my dear DT Coordinators Emma & Susan. My freelance illustration workload right now is such that I am too spent to enjoy creating new TSB designs, but this is only temporary, though exactly how long I cannot accurately say.
I'll talk about what's kept me so busy on my own personal blog. For now, I wanted to make everyone aware of what the the changes were, even though they were implemented a couple of months ago.
From now on, our Design Team is invitation only. We will not be accepting applications or holding DT calls again until further notice.
Rubber Stamps and Wholesale Accounts
We will no longer sell rubber stamps to individual customers. Instead, we will sell rubber stamps only to select retailers. It's complicated to explain, but doing this will allow us to expand the rubber stamp catalog we offer to our retailers, and as a result, you'll have access to more TSB rubber stamps, so we have good reason to do this.
This also means that if you have an online store in the United States, you can now open a Wholesale Account with The Stamping Bazaar, which you couldn't before!
To make it easier for those who prefer to buy rubber stamps, we've created a new Retailers page where you can find links and addresses to online and brick-and-mortar stories that are authorized to carry The Stamping Bazaar products.
AND FINALLY: Our Yahoo! group is being deleted. Instead, our Flickr group will become the primary place to share your creations.
