Yes, it's true: Whisper White cardstock is retiring

If you haven't heard yet, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news: Whisper White cardstock is retiring. The supplier’s mill that produced the beloved Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. And sadly, since not much notice in the closure was given, the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable. Note that this doesn't affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

The good news though is that Stampin' Up! has dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the quality we all know and trust. The new replacement cardstock is Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple! Check out this comparison video here:

Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.
Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. Due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible. Find out more about the new products here.

Additionally, please note that since this change is outside our control, we haven’t been able to tackle all necessary alterations at once. You may still see the name Whisper White on some of our non-cardstock product labels, catalogue, and marketing material for a while. We will be working on rolling changes to address this.
