Is your Tim Holtz Distress Marker Red?
Distress markers by Tim Holtz have been coming in slowly. A customer pointed out to me that there was a batch of the Barn Door and Fired Brick markers that were actually browns and not reds. I contacted my rep and she said they will replace those two colors if the customer is unsatisfied.If you are one of those who purchased one of those two colors from us and are unsatisfied with the color please drop off your pen at Island Scrapbooking by the 15th of JUNE and no later. I am going to send them back to get replacements in as soon as possible. Some may like the color and just choose to get the next batch of reds when they come in. The option is up to you:) Your satisfaction is our priority!
