Stampin' Up! Reaches Milestone with Company Expansion

80,000-square-foot manufacturing facility to open for business in Kanab, Utah; Global expansion continues with New Zealand launch in April

SALT LAKE CITY-Stampin' Up!® ,  a leading manufacturer and distributor of decorative rubber stamps and accessories for card making, scrapbooking and home décor, is undertaking major expansion in 2007, and has announced that it will open a new manufacturing facility in March. Stampin' Up! will also be launching into New Zealand in April. The company's expansion milestone reflects the ongoing worldwide passion for decorative rubber stamping and crafting.

 After relying on one manufacturing facility for 14 years in Kanab, Stampin' Up! will open the doors to a second 80,000-square-foot facility later this month. Public tours of the facility will take place March 31, 2007 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.-address 1400 South Main Street Kanab, Utah.

"We are delighted to further our commitment to the employees of Stampin' Up! and the surrounding communities with a brand new facility," said Shelli Gardner, CEO and Co-Founder of Stampin' Up! "The new facility will be instrumental as we expand globally and continue to deliver quality products to our consumers in a timely manner."

The Kanab facility is equipped with the latest technological advances, including a geothermal field that utilizes the temperature from the ground (natural energy) to heat and cool the building. Stampin' Up! also recognizes the importance of applying high-tech filtration systems to ensure clean-air manufacturing, and is conducting extensive research into this, to guarantee the continued well-being of the community and surrounding areas. The facility located on 55 acres of land is designed to allow for plenty of future growth as the company continues to expand globally and the demand for products increases.

As part of the Stampin' Up!'s global expansion initiative and after a successful launch in Australia last year, the company has chosen to enter the New Zealand market April 1, 2007. This will be the company's third international market.

Stampin' Up!, a direct sales organization, exceeded 50,000 independent consultants or "demonstrators," throughout the US, Canada and Australia in 2007, and was recognized as a "Best of State" winner for Manufacturing in Utah in 2006, 2005 and 2004. Stampin' Up! will now offer home-based business opportunities to New Zealander's with a local office in Auckland.
