Whisper White cardstock retires as mill closes. Replaced with Stampin' Up! Basic White cardstock.


  • Mill producing Whisper White permanently closed due to Covid-19
  • Testing ensued for a replacement to meet Stampin' Up! standards 
  • Replacement called Basic White is in the works
  • With Whisper White going out of production, a number of products affected 
  • Whisper White products available while supplies last with limits of 2 items per order.

Whisper White has been a Stampin' Up! staple for a long time.  We love it and we know you love it, too.  Stampin' Up! sadly announced that the supplier's mill producing Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! received little notice about this closure.  This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to Stampin' Up!, and Stampin' Up! can no longer offer Whisper White cardstock and related products such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  Note that this won't affect any other cardstocks; this only affects Whisper White.   

After testing alternative cardstocks from several suppliers that maintains Stampin' Up's quality, a replacement winner has been announced:  Basis White.  Listen to the video below for a comparison of Whisper White to Basic White.

The new Basic White Products will become available to purchase as soon as Stampin' Up! has them in stock.  This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time.  

Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out.  Please know that Stampin' Up! is working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.  Since the change came as a surprise, during the transition to new Basic White products, you may still see the name Whisper White on some of Stampin' Up! non-cardstock product labels, catalog, and marketing material for a while.  Stampin' Up! is working diligently to address this.  

Here are the Whisper White cardstock items that are available while supplies last.  An order limit of 2 per item per order is in place.  We hope this early heads up will help you as you plan your upcoming purchases.  These Whisper White items can be combined on orders for items from the current catalogs, as well as combined with Clearance Rack and Giant Year End Closeout items while supplies remain.

The Stampin' Up Online store has more ways to search, and larger images making it easier to find and see close ups of new products.  Important Note:  If you haven't visited the store since the launch, you will need to enter your password as the new Online Store also has a new location on new servers.  Just once; then you're all set.
