....has been discontinued according to my LSS!
This is my all time favourite background paper and I can't believe they aren't going to be making it anymore!

I knew being bought out by American Crafts was going to be a bad thing. That's really disappointing. I love OP

Pardon my ignorance- just checking: OP means, in this context, the orange peel texture? If so, there it goes. The first domino has fallen.

No, the owner of my LSS tried to reorder it and was told it was discontinued....she did not get any notice or anything.....
I've ordered a bunch of it online....I guess whatever is left in stores, is all there is now!

I use that on just about every layout I make. In Project Life. In everything.

I just placed a large order for it. Guess I'll have to ration it out now.

Hi everyone! My name is Tauni. I work in online marketing at American Crafts and thought it might be helpful to step in and respond on this one...
I am afraid you've received some bad information. The Bazzill White Orange Peel texture HAS NOT been discontinued, nor do we have any plans to discontinue it. It's a great product!

Hi Tauni. Thanks for responding on behalf of AC. I do use this product a lot and I've been meaning to stock up anyway. I don't regret my large purchase because it's a must-have for me and I'll be glad to have it just in case. I'm glad to hear that AC has no plans to discontinue OP!! It is the BEST!!

Given the AC rep's response, it appears the OP' LSS must order from a third-party distributor that has discontinued the product. Luckily, Bazzill OP White will still be available!

AC should have left this rumour run and they would have stood a stack more of the cardstock while everyone got into stockpile mode

I'm very glad to hear that it hasn't been discontinued!
I was told that it had been however by someone that I know and trust! I wonder why she was told that it was discontinued?
I also bought quite a bit of it and will be set for a long time.....oh well!

It has probably been discontinued by a third party distributor. Most LSS here order from them because the minimums are much easier to reach. However, they aren't going to carry every single product. Sometimes the distributor will also "discontinue" something when they are having issues getting stock of a product.

Thanks for the update Tauni!

And why might have the OP been told it was discontinued? My first thought was the product has a new UPC and the computer showed the old upc as being discontinued. It would make perfect sense to assume it was the product that was discontinued and not just the upc.

The OP is in Canada as am I. A Canadian distributor is shutting down so many local LSS are not able to get product in anymore. I'm not sure why but one said it's too costly to order and ship from the manufacturers themselves. Maybe they aren't offered enough of a volume discount and it's cheaper to actually go through a middleman. This is likely why her store told her they can't get it anymore. My store is closing because they can't get anything now.

I've been stocking up on my favorite colors and textures because I'm very concerned about future quality/thickness, color consistency, and which colors will be discontinued. Only time will tell if the pattern continues. But new, independent companies pop up all the time.
