I hope you are all well. I am sorry for my silence for a while, it has been (and still is) the most dynamic year in my life so I wasn't able to work much. I didn't have to worry about you, my blog readers and customers though as sombody else took a great care of you during that past month or so. Thank you Mariska! :)
As some of you already know there are some new VAT tax laws in the European Union which would require me to charge, collect, and then pay tax on all my digital stamps. Due to this new law we(e) decided to close the shop on 30th December 2014. But please do not worry as we hope this closing will be just temporary untill we find a new solution how to work with those new tax regulations, especially that they are quite new and they keep changing a bit all the time.
Before we close the shop though I would like to offer you a discount if you want to add any of my designs to your collection and work with them during my off time.
Here it is: WEE10
Just use this code during your purchase process to receive 10% off your shopping HERE.
For those of you who are planning to buy some more digis than usually here is another discount code of 20% off on orders over £40 (GBP).
WEE20Promotions are valid till the end of the month as long as the shop stays open. And I have just added one more digi to the shop - Leon, as you may already know he is inspired on some real little cars' lover based in the Netherlands ;) (Leon will be available as rubber stamp in February at Whimsy Stamps)
Thank you so much again everyone for your support. I wish you all a Blessed and Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2015!
Really sorry to hear that you are closing your digi-stamp shop, but so relieved that your fabulous images will still be available as stamps. I do hope the powers that be see sense and realise the effect this new law is having on businesses like yours and a solution can be found.ReplyDelete
Merry christmas and all the very best for the new year xx
I too am really sorry to hear that you will have to close down, there have been announcements almost every day with small digi business's having to close because of these silly new laws. I do hope that a way can be found around it soon and that you will be able to open up your shop again. In the mean time thank you for allowing the discount for us to stock up on our images as I am sure lots of people will, me included. I wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a Healthy and prosperous New Year.ReplyDelete
Oh Sylvia i am so sorry to hear this is will be getting the stamps xmas day as a gift to myself... i hope you can find a solution to this stupid VAT thing and still share your fabulous creations with us all.. hugs Tracy xReplyDelete
Sylvia, I am praying that you find a speedy solution to what seems like a stupid tax. I love your artwork and cannot wait to see what you come up with next. Love and blessings for your holidays.ReplyDelete
Sounds like your government can't keep their hands out of the pot any more than ours here!! They sure make it hard to do business!! I just love your images and hope all will be well soon!!! I usually buy rubber from Whimsy but occasionally digi's...yours are my favorite!ReplyDelete
oh Sylvia I do hope you find a way around these ridiculous new laws, it's so sad to keep seeing shops closing every day, especially yours as they are too cute to not be able to buy any more. Fingers crossed you find a way. Merry Christmas xxReplyDelete
Really sorry to hear that you are closing your digi-stamp shop, but so relieved that your fabulous images will still be available as stamps. I do hope the powers that be see sense and realize thisReplyDelete
Merry Christmas and all the very best for the new year hugs
So sad to hear that your shop closed! I have buy my favorite stamps :)ReplyDelete
I hope you are back soon!! Hugs Anneke
Sorry to see you going for now! I hope to see you comeback soon. Thank you for a discount to pick up some of the ones I don't have yet in my collection.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry to hear about your closing - I sure do hope it's only temporary!! Thank you for the coupon - I picked up some images I really loved and never got before! Happy Holidays!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you are affected by this silly new law too Sylvia.ReplyDelete
I have heard that if you sell via Etsy or something similar then they are responsible for the tax but the fees are not great.
I do hope you find a solution very soon
So echo the above sentiments and hope you can indeed find a solution as I so love my digis (and yours in particular); for a few reasons - storage, re-sizing (bonus!), cost and impulse/instant gratification crafting even at midnight ;-). Please keep us posted and in the meantime Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. ~hugs from CanadaReplyDelete
Oh noooooo !!!!! What am I going to do now ???? Please please find a solution to this I don't know how I am going to survive without your digis 💙💛💜💚❤️ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear this Sylvia :( Will have to pop over and collect all the digis I don't have...Thanks for the discount, maybe needing the WEE20 one lolReplyDelete
Wishing you a Merry Christmas.
Hugs Wendy xx
So sad. Going to shop. Need more money.ReplyDelete
Hey, Sylvia. Thank you for the discount. I picked up 4 of the images. Don't know when I'll get a chance to color them but at least I have them. Thank you so much and I hope that this new tax is overturned.ReplyDelete
So sad to hear that you too will need to close up shop. So many of my most beloved digi designers are having to stop selling. But thank you very much for the discount. I snatched up 7 more which hopefully will keep me busy until you (and many more) can figure out a way around this new law. I love digis more than rubber, so I really do hope it's resolved soon. Thanks again for the discount.ReplyDelete
Sooo sad that our European politician are walking in sooo tight shoes, and like you, we´re many who´re hping, that they´ll soon see sense and change this stupid rule again, so we can hopefully soon get back to normal ways, so people can keep up their normal buisnesses in these small terms.ReplyDelete
Thanks sooo much for the discount code, that is soo sweet of you,
Wishuing you and your family a very merry christmas and a happy new year, and let´s all wish for, this will be changed all back before it get there.
Soooooo sorry to hear this, all because an annoying law tha doesn't help anyone...Hope you can find a solution and open again.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much for the discount, I'm going to get some of the digis I still don't have.
So sad to hear this and i hope there will be a solution! Thank you for the discount code i buy some of your beautiful winterimages for my collection. Wish you and your family A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.ReplyDelete
So sad to read your post Sylvia. Hoping and wishing for a solution that can mean you still trade in your digi's. I do love them so. Wishing you a beautiful Christmas and wonderful New Year. Hugs, Wends xReplyDelete
Your digi stamps are a god send to me as I live in a remote location. I will be watching for when you figure out a new way to present them. Thank you for your lovely work and have a wonderful holiday season.ReplyDelete
So sad to read this Sylvia, I really hope this horrible mess gets sorted for you and all the other wonderful artists. xxReplyDelete
Rushed over tonight to get in before the shop closed for the latest stamps I was yet to buy, only to find I was too late! Crying in my coffee now :(ReplyDelete
Really do hope the VAT issue can be sorted quickly for you Sylvia. Will miss your stamps terribly otherwise! xxxx
Thank you Wendy. My shop is still open for a few more hours, so it is not too late. I will do my best to come back and reopen as soon as possible.Delete
I can't believe I waiting to long, I guess I will hope and pray you come back and I get a chance to get the ones I wantedReplyDelete
wie schade, auch ich bin zu spät und ich kann nur hoffen das es eine Lösung gibt. Denn ich liebe Ihre Digistamp.
Ich wünsche Ihnen und Ihrer Familie einen guten Jahreswechsel und ein gesundes neues Jahr.
Sylvia, I am SO late in posting a comment here, but I still wanted to reply. This new law is heartbreaking and I was really hoping it somehow wouldn't impact you. (Wishful thinking, I know!) I'm sorry this has happened and pray for your precious store to reopen soon. You are a treasure in this industry, so I am thankful we do still have the rubber options. Wishing you and your family a blessed and beautiful new year!ReplyDelete
Hugs and blessings,
So sad that you had to close your digi shop. I would have stocked up on the ones that I don't have had I known. Looking forward to you coming back soon!!ReplyDelete
I was looking at the shop page and I wondered where the shop went :( I am so sad I missed the change to buy some digi's I really wanted. Sorry to here things are so difficult now with tax stuff. Hope you get the change to reopen soon cause I am waiting to get my hands on some more digi'sReplyDelete
