We are disappointed by the news that one of our vendors, Kodomo, Inc. (USA) will be closing. The slow economy and the downturn in the stamping and scrapbooking market place have led them to make this decision The parent company, Kodomo No Kao in Japan will continue in business and produce stamps and other craft supplies. Although Kodomo Japan will continue in business, a majority of the Kodomo, Inc. (USA) stamp images and products were produced solely for the American market place. At this time, there are no plans for Kodomo Japan to continue to carry or produce the Kodomo, Inc. (USA) line.
We are also saddened that our good friend and Kodomo's designer, Stephanie Sheetz will no longer be affliated with Kodomo as they close their USA line. All of us will miss her smiling face and her creative energy.
For those of you Kodomo fans, MTM still has a selection of papers and stamps. Unfortunately, once they are sold out, they cannot be reordered.
