Default Clearsnap is closing

. Clearsnap is closing. I didnt know SU had bought them. Says today is last day to order but that might be for wholesale accounts as it is suggested we look to scrapbook.com and AZ for retail.

I was surprised to read that as well. I wonder if they produced the stamp pads for SU. Would make sense.

I'm just so sad. I wrapped up my last tutorial for them today.

It is sad. I could be totally wrong but it feels to me like they were the first to have pads with really robust rich colors like orchid and peony. I hate seeing any company go out but the oldest ones bother me even more. I learned some techniques with their products.

I was surprised as well when I read that. Colorbox inks were my first inks and I have so many of the pigment inkpads, along with a petalpoint set and a rainbow set. I used pigment inks before I even discovered dye inks, because the pigments were so rich in color. I didn't know that SU had taken them over either, but read that the SU inks are not made by Clearsnap. So sad.

I won a prize from them about two years ago or so either during DTGD or falliday fest! They sent some really cool stuff!

I still have a small tin of Cats Eyes on my desk...and I used my Spectrum pad just a couple of weeks ago. Sad. Until distress came on the scene they were almost my only coloured pads.

I had read that the companies ran independently and that SU was their biggest customer ... with their other recent die contract termination and decision to move production overseas, my guess is that their ink production is going the same way. Not positive though.

Oh yes, I almost forgot about all my Cats Eye pads! I keep those in a little box on my shelf and like to take it when I travel.

Sad news whenever a craft mfr/vendor closes. I am glad you shared the news as I was able to buy a "spare backup" LOL for my Frost White pigment inkpad. It was the last one in that color!

Oh gosh, that never crossed my mind. But I recently got a full size pad so along with my small pad and a half bottle of reinker I should be good for a while. Distress Picket Fence is actually pigment, is it? And how does a hybrid white compare to pigment white, can anyone tell me.

Sabrina ... I don't have time to search but there have been discussions about white ink. I know I posted a sample of Brilliance and Colorbox (using the snowman from Frosty ... so quite a long time ago.) The topic gets revived and updated occasionally.

I think Shazsilverwolf (I hope I got her username right) might have done a comparison on her blog. I think W+9's ink was mentioned but I 'm not sure of the details.

Just to add to the hijack ...

White Ink Pad - Splitcoaststampers

This thread from 2012 is about white ink. Post 14 has a link to Shaz' blog and I think it was post32 where I linked to a different thread and my personal samples.

Hope this helps.

What will I ink my edges with?? I've been using Chestnut Roan since I started crafting. I do have reinkers, and an extra cats eye or two, but I had no idea they were closing down.

That is one of my favorite shades of brown. If possible, try to get to any/all big box stores before they sell out. Hobby Lobby had some full size oads for under $3.00 last week.

I may be a lone wolf here, but I absolutely LOVED their Rollagraph roller wheels. I was sorry when SU stopped carrying them. Quick way to decorate a gift bag. I agree--it's incredibly sad when a longtime stamp company closes.

I'm confused ... The Stamp Market is introducing new inks in September that are ColorBox brand.
