Watercolor Pencils Update
As many of you may be aware, we are experiencing an extremely high demand for our Watercolor Pencils (item 141709). If sales maintain their current levels, inventory in all markets will sell out within 2–3 weeks; if demand increases, our supply will deplete sooner.
Though we felt we had ordered more than enough units, the three-month supply of this product sold out within two months. We ordered two more shipments in response to high demand, yet sales continued to outpace projections while production slowed due to the Chinese New Year holiday; therefore, it will be necessary for us to place this item in not-orderable status as soon as our current inventory is depleted for each market.
Our next shipment will leave the factory in mid-April. In order to get this product into the hands of our demonstrators and customers as quickly as possible, we will air freight it to our various markets so that it arrives by the end of April.
We hope that by communicating this situation to you now, you will have plenty of time to prepare for this item’s interruption in availability. Please note that when you enter this product’s item number in OEX on a customer, demonstrator, or workshop order, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when it is back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when its status changes and it is again available to purchase.
