I got it too

Their stamps and Whimsy's are the only ones I buy anymore .
It says they are closing their retail store, but just like Flourishes it may not be long before they are out of businesses.

The manufacturer of Verve's stamps went went out of business and Verve is having difficulty filling orders.

CHA had to join the Jewelry show to have enough participants.

Things are not looking promising for the stamping hobby .

Does anyone know if Justrite is going to continue to sell wholesale to stores or are they ending all stamp sales ? Numerous retailers sell their stamps and dies

This is very sad JustRite and Flourishes where my favorite stamps. I wonder if because of the economy or is it because of having trouble getting the stamps actually made?
I know that companies come and go. It is still sad when one that has been around for a long time closes it's doors.

So sad, I have also noticed at Hobby Lobby that the Paper Crafting area has diminished GREATLY! I'm just wondering if it isn't the economy that Just Rite is going out of business. (Not all store closings are because of the economy though. LOL)

I believe Justrite manufactured their own rubber stamps , not sure about the clear stamps.
Before Justrite started producing hobby rubber stamps they made business rubber stamps such as "Paid" "Thank you" " Fragile" name and address , etc . I don't know if they still make and sell business related stamps .

I got a partial answer to my previous question of will they continue to sell wholesale to other retailers. In todays email this is what it said :

JustRite Papercraft Consumer Website is Closing
Posted: 13 Jun 2015 07:41 AM PDT
Earlier this week I announced to our Newsletter Subscribers that JustRite Papercraft will be closing the JustRite Consumer Website on June 30th 2015. We have already closed our wholesale website and are directing store owners to now order JustRite Products through Notions.


My guess is "Notions" is a middle man company like "Darice" for small stores to order small quantities of products so perhaps their stamps will still be available through retailers , but this is not clear from the email.

Interest in ALL hobbies is declining . Paper crafting is one of the last to go . There will always be people who enjoy paper crafting or any other hobby, but they will be in smaller numbers and supplies and equipment will be harder to find

I have to wonder if the availability of digital stamps has had an impact on this over the last few years? The internet has certainly done great things for crafters, and I'm not 'blaming' digis, I just wonder if more people are buying digis rather than traditional rubber stamps...

Barbara you are correct that Notions is a distributor. I have a lot of sets in my cart right now. You must have a resale sales tax certificate and busiess license to order from them.

I received it too, and I'm really surprised, BOY it seems more and more of the stamp companies are closing, just can't figure out why. Especially since they've been in the business for so long. I really like the stamps I've bought from them. I wonder who'll be next. Marge

I thought I was the only one who's noticed the decline of paper crafting products at Hobby Lobby, the two near where I live don't even carry die's anymore, and their stamps area is getting smaller and smaller. I figured when Archivers closed all of their brick and mortar stores something must be happening in the crafting world. Also I've noticed that when they have stamp shows around me only a few vendors show up. I hate to see this happen, I loved going to stamp shows it was so much fun. Marge

I just googled them out of curiousity today...and the site says they are selling now through Jo-Anns. So you might still be able to get some stuff there if interested.

Their wholesale market is still active, they've just stopped direct sales through their website.

Looks like one of their artists and several designers have migrated over to Photopolymer Clear Stamps by Joy Clair.

I'm hoping to see the stamping industry stay alive. Scrapbooking seems to be disappearing.

I agree and notice less stuff at HL, no more good stuff and much less local stamp and scrapbook stores to shop at. Too much online shopping, people have too much stuff and no more need more things.

Mary Maxim, in Port Huron, MI, just cut their scrapbooking and stamping down to three small isles to 3/4 it's size. My city closed three scrapbook stores in one year so all we have is Michael's now. I'm sorry to see this happening to our industry.
