What Kind of Demonstrator Would You Be?

Whether you want to purchase your own stamping supplies at a discount, to earn some extra money from your hobby or to build a business, Stampin’ Up! provides you with the opportunity to reach your goals.

There are all kinds of demonstrators, and Stampin’ Up! needs each of them! What kind of demonstrator would you be?

Discount Demonstrator:
You like the idea of buying stamps and supplies for your personal use at a 20 percent discount and occasionally selling to neighbors, relatives, friends, etc.

Seasonal Demonstrator:
You work hard for a short period of time or season to earn a specific amount of money or to achieve a specific goal, and then you maintain minimum orders and sales during the balance of the year.

Hobby Demonstrator:
You love doing workshops and earning extra money when it is convenient. You work a lot some months and very little other months. You will do workshops if they are easy to book, and maybe have a regular group that meets together once a month. You enjoy the rewards that being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator brings, but you don’t plan to make Stampin’ Up! a career.

Career Demonstrator:
You view Stampin’ Up! as a viable business with long-term career potential. You pursue a management role, and you want to continue moving up with your Stampin’ Up! career. You love attending Stampin’ Up! events and have close relationships with other demonstrators. You work at your business in a consistent and outgoing manner. As you can see, this is a fun, flexible business you can build to suit your individual needs and goals.

Have a great day!

Snow Day Scrapbook Page

Here's another scrapbook page I created using My Digital Studio (MDS) from Stampin' Up! I just noticed that I put the date as February, but it was actually January! Oh well, that will be an easy fix before I have it printed!

One thing I LOVE about MDS is that I can save a duplicate file and change out photos and journaling to make a page that focuses on my older son. I only had to design one layout, but can get multiple pages from it! Gotta love MDS! I'm feeling so much better about getting caught up with my scrapbooking!

Becoming A Demonstrator FAQ's

Q: What are the minimum sales requirements?
A: 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 commission.

Q: What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?
A: 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.

Q: Can I be my own hostess?
A: 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.

Q: How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?
A: The Starter Kit is only $199, and it includes everything you will need to get your business up and running, including stamp sets, ink, paper, catalogs, order forms, a training video, and more ($355 value). If you’re interested in scrapbooking, you can also select the Stampin’ Memories® Add-On for an additional $50 ($80 value).

Q: How can I make money as a demonstrator?
A: 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 percent of your recruits’ sales).

Q: Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?
A: 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.

Q: Where will I get project ideas for my workshops? What kind of training can I expect?
A: 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 web site, hundreds of samples, annual and seasonal catalogs, a training DVD, the Demonstrator Manual, and a Product Guide.

Q: Is Stampin’ Up! a well-known, respected company?
A: 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!

Q: What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit?
A: 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.

Same Card, Different Feel

Okay, this card is similar to my last post. It's the same card design and colors, but I wanted to try out some of my new Stampin' Up! goodies to update it. I debated whether to purchase the clear stamps or not. I finally broke down and did it. I'm SO glad I did! I was able to layer the chocolate chip frame with the tempting turquoise sentiment with no problem at all...didn't even have to break out the Stamp-a-ma-jig!
If you decide to go with the clear stamps, I highly suggest purchasing the Clear Mount Blocks Bundle. It will save you over 10% to purchase the bundle instead of purchasing the blocks individually, and you'll have every size you need. If you purchase the bundle (item # 118491 for $69.95), you'll get to choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set from now through March 31st.
  • Stamps: SU Wedding Sweet, Vintage Labels (Sale-A-Bration), Whimsical Words (Sale-A-Bration)
  • Paper: SU Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise
  • Accessories: SU Curly Label Punch, Scallop Trim Border punch (Sale-A-Bration)
