Join & Save

Ever thought about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - even if it's only for the discount?  Now would be a great time to join!  Feel free to click the link above to learn more, or contact me, and we'll talk it over.

Here's some useful information I've posted in the past, that might help you decide if you'd like to join:

Stampin' Up! has summed it all up in this FAQ about being a demonstrator:

FAQs about Being a Demonstrator

1.  What are the minimum sales requirements?

You only need to submit $300 in sales per quarter. That is less than an average
Stampin’ Up!® workshop!  Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you
wish and still receive your 20 percent discount and

2.  What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?
Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at
which they choose to run their business. If you choose
not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or
collect orders from family and friends to equal the $300 quarterly sales minimum.

3.  Can I be my own hostess?
Yes, you can be your own hostess anytime you want. Invite your family and friends
into your home and have a workshop. You will be the hostess, receiving the hostess
benefits, as well as the demonstrator, receiving your instant income and commission.

4.  How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?
The Starter Kit is only $99, and is fully customizable. You choose up to $125 worth
of any current Stampin’ Up! products, and you will also r eceive a business supplies
pack containing materials you need to run your business (valued at $65).
5.  How can I make money as a demonstrator?
You can earn money in three ways: instant income (20 percent of each order),
monthly volume rebates (5 –20 percent of total sales), and monthly downline
override commissions (2–6.5 percent of your recruits’ sales).
6.  Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?
No. If you were to recruit demonstrators, you would be paid override commissions
on your downline’s sales, but this is a perk, not a requirement.
7.  Where will I get project ideas for my workshops? What kind of training can I
Stampin’ Up! provides dozens of training resources filled with project ideas and tips
to help you run every aspect of your business, including a monthly publication called
Stampin’ Success, Demonstrator Support agents, a demonstrator-only website,
hundreds of samples, annual and seasonal catalogs, a training DVD, the
Demonstrator Manual, and a Product Guide.

8.  Is Stampin’ Up! a well-known, respected company?

Since 1988, Stampin’ Up! has been selling rubber stamps and paper-crafting supplies.
In that time, not only have we won industry awards and accolades, but also the loyalty
and admiration of demonstrators and customers alike. And that is a trend that we work
hard to maintain. You can rest assured that the reputation of Stampin’ Up! will only
continue to improve!
9.  What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit?
You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop
placing orders.  However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator.


Here's another post about what kind of demonstrator you might like to be:

Hobby Demonstrator: Most that fall into this category hold occasional workshops to make a little
extra money, but they don't plan on making Stampin' Up! a career for themselves.

Discount Demonstrator: You are mainly a demonstrator just for the fabulous benefit of receiving
20% off each order to fund your Stampin' addiction.  You still might sell to friends, family, and
neighbors, but you are in the demonstratorship for yourself and your personal pursuits of
happiness in the Stampin' Up! world.

Seasonal Demonstrator:  Works fantastically hard to earn specific amounts of money and to meet
certain goals for themselves for part of the year, then kicks back and makes sure to meet the
minimum quarterly orders for the rest of the year with no pressure.

Career Demonstrator: You pursue your demonstratorship as your career.  You hold regular
workshops, stamp classes, recruit new demonstrators, and want to further yourself within the
company, as far as you can go.

Of course, these aren't Stampin' Up!'s official descriptions - I embellished a little into how I see
the normal four demonstratorships go.  However, I think you get the point.  This is a fabulous
deal - to become an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator at this time. 

Take care and Happy Stamping!
