The Perfect Time

If you have ever thought about becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, now is the perfect time. If you sign up between Aug. 10th and Sept 30th, in addition to our wonderful basic starter kit you will also receive an entire color family of Classic Stamp Pads. That is a $57.95 value.

What are the benifits of being a demonstrator?
Being a demonstrator is wonderful. You get sneak peaks at new products. You can purchase some products early. We purchase everything at a discount. You get monthly magazines full of new ideas and information. You can earn extra items through special demonstrator only promotions. The best part is the friends you make. There is an instant bond between you and thousands of other demonstrators. We share ideas, projects, tips, techniques and encouragement.

What if I don't want to hold workshop?
Than don't. Stampin' Up! has room for all kinds of demonstrators. You can simply purchase items for yourself at a discount if that is all you want to do. You can share with your family and friends. You can have classes, workshops or events if that is what you choose. Or you can make this a full time business. As long as you are making your quarterly minimum you can run your business anyway you want. Since your own purchases count towards your minimums, you never have to sell to another person.

What do I get in the basic $199 starter kit?
5-stamp sets (You can substitute for equal value)
1-stampin' around wheel (You can substitute)
Stampin' Around Handle and Ink Cartiridge of your choice
Stampin' Pastels
2-assorted packs of cardstock (color family of your choice)
Pack of neutral card stock
Basic Stamping Supplies--craft rubber sissors, stampin' scrub, stampin' mist, & snail adhesive
Versamark Pad
Blender Pens
6-Classic Ink Pads
Business supplies kit- order forms, catalogs, mini catalogs, brochures, Getting Started Packet & DVD, Hostess folders, workshop invitations

Now that I have purchased the kit, what are my obligations?
To remain an active demonstrator for Stampin' Up! you simple need to sell (or purchase yourself) $300 in products before the end of December and than every three months after that. All product purchases count towards this minimum. All products you buy to use in your business count towards your $300 quarterly minimum. All products you buy for your own personal use count towards your minimums. All products you buy on advance promotions count towards your minimums. This minimum can easliy be acheived with 2 standard workshops. So you only have to work a couple of times every 3 months to remain an active demonstrator.

What happens if I don't make my quarterly minimum?
Stampin' Up! gives you a one month pending period if you don't meet your minimum. If by the end of December you don't sell $300 in product than you are pending during January. During a pending month you must make up the rest of your minimum plus $100 towards the next quarter. Example: you sell $225 by December. In January you would have to sell the $75 still needed for the previous quarter and $100 for the next quarter for a total of $175.
