Why I joined Stampin’ Up Canada!
There are three reasons why I joined Stampin’ Up! Canada back in 2003, and those reasons are still valid today.
- Product Discount: 20% or more discount on all products I purchase
- Social Aspect: Learning with other crafters is amazing and so rewarding
- Career Choice: I can earn extra income from my love of creating cards and scrapbooking which is awesome!
You may have similar reasons to want to join Stampin’ Up! or they may be different, that is okay. But know when you join, I will do my best to help you in any way I can, whether you want to be a hobby demonstrator and buy products for yourself, or if you want to make Stampin’ Up! a career.
Cost to Join
The cost to join is $135. However, during the sign up process, you get to select up to $165 worth of product as part of your starter kit. Yes, you pay $135 for $165 worth of product and it ships to you free of charge! Not sure what products you want to start with? Click this Product Selection PDF link which will help guide you what to add to your Starter Kit.
Aside from the $165 worth of product, your Starter Kit will also contain a Business Supplies Pack (in English or French) or a Digital Designing Supplies Pack. Items included in these packs include catalogues (8), postcards(100), Stampin’ Up! vinyl logo (1), recruit brochures (20), order forms(50), and more.
Important note: you have no obligation to purchase anything further and there is no requirement to host workshops or parties. You control how involved you want to be so it is a low risk opportunity.
Active versus Inactive Demonstrator
Once you have joined you are considered an active demonstrator. As an active demonstrator you can place orders for yourself or others and receive a 20% discount. For example, if you want to purchase $100 worth of product for yourself, it will only cost you $80. You remain an active demonstrator if you place $400 worth of orders per quarter (i.e. Jan, Feb, Mar). This requirement is waived the quarter you join. Sales can be any combination of your own personal orders and customer orders. For example, if you place a supply order for $150 and two customer orders for $150 each, you will have exceeded your quarterly requirement ($150 x 3 = $450). In this example you would receive a 20% discount on the $450 in sales which would be valued at $90 (instant income). If you do not meet your quarterly sales requirement, you become an inactive demonstrator. There is no penalty or cost associated with this, but you give up the perk of ordering at a 20% discount.
Other Benefits to Joining
- Free subscription to Stampin Success magazine (every two months)
- Sneak peeks at yet-to-be released catalogues
- Attend demonstrator-only events and card swaps
- Earn cash bonuses, product bonuses, incentive trips, and other awards as sales increase
- You choose the level of effort you want to put in
- Did I mention how much fun this is?
I live elsewhere, can I still join?
As long as you live in Canada, you can join Stampin’ Up! If you live in the USA, I can help you find a demonstrator. I will support you near or far, so being in another city or province is not a big deal. If you want to be kept up to date on Stampin’ Up! news and events, I will certainly keep you ‘in the know’. At the end of the day I am here to provide guidance and support based on my experiences. I will use email, phone, and video to ensure you are well supported as a demonstrator. I want to see you succeed, it is just that simple.
