Q & A Thursday
Earlier this week Becky Higgins announced that she has partnered with American Crafts to bring Project Life to a whole new level. If you haven’t had a chance to read her post you can do so here – http://www.beckyhiggins.com/blog/2012/10/a-new-partnership/
With that announcement has come a flurry of questions from those of you living outside of the USA.
I addressed a few questions on Monday’s post. Today I want to answer a few more.
Q. Will Retailers outside of the USA be selling the product in their stores?
A. Any retailer worldwide is welcome to apply to American Craft (if you haven’t already) to get Project Life products in your store. http://www.beckyhiggins.com/contact/retailers.php
Q. How soon will stores have the product available?
A. American Crafts has partnered with Becky Higgins to manufacture and distribute product starting in the SPRING of 2013. Which means the earliest it is likely to be in stores is the first part of May 2013.
** Attention Retailers **
Q. How can a Retailer get Project Life Products in their shop for THIS Holiday Season?
A. If you are a retailer in Canada or in the European Union and you would like to have Project Life products on your shelf in time for the 2012 Holiday Season, please send me an email at retailer AT scrapbookersinnercircle DOT com and I would be happy to discuss getting access to my stock.
Q. What about the quality of the Page Protectors?
A. I personally don’t have any experience with American Craft page protectors, so I can not speak to their quality. However, I am going to refer you to a sentence in the press release about the partnership that may answer your concern.
“Under the terms of the agreement, Becky Higgins will continue to oversee the design, development and marketing of all Project Life products, as well as independently operate her website,online store and blog.”
If you are still concerned, there are plenty of Photo Pocket Pages manufactured directly by Becky Higgins LLC still in our shops, ready to ship right now.
Q. Will WRMK still be making the binders.
A. Becky has confirmed that WRMK will be making the Seafoam and Olive Binders. As well, ScrapbookersInnerCircle.com has fully stocked shelves of all the current Editions and the Signature Binders, all made by WRMK.
Q. Will there still be a place in South Africa that sells Project Life?
A. As mentioned above, any retailer, is welcome to contact American Crafts to get Project Life in their shop.
Q. Can I still get Project Life in New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia?
A. Customers are welcome to contact the current distributors in these locations. They are happy to continue to meet your Project Life needs. AND they are stocked right now!
Q. Will Project Life still be available in your online shops for those of us who don’t live near a store or want the convenience of home delivery.
A. Scrapbooker’s Inner Circle is not going anywhere. We are here to service the Project Life needs of those loyal and new customers. We are in negotiations with American Crafts to continue to offer Project Life products well into the future. We will be sure to keep you posted as the time draws near.
In the meantime, it is business as usual. Our shop is stocked full of all the current designs and we are accepting pre-orders for the Seafoam, Olive and Baby Editions as well as the Childhood Mini Kits that are all scheduled to arrive during the 2012 holiday season.
