Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the minimum sales requirements?

A: You only have to submit $600 in sales per quarter. If you hold at least one workshop a month, or run a Stamp Club, you’ll not only cover your sales minimum, you’ll also be able to pay for some of your own hobby as well.

Q: What if I only want to do this as a hobby. Do I still have to have workshops?

A: Absolutely not!! Stampin' Up! supports the hobby demonstrator just as well as the career demonstrator. You can put in your own order or collect orders from family & friends to equal the $600 a quarter minimum.

Q: Can I be my own Hostess?

A: Yes, you can be your own Hostess anytime you want. You can invite your family & friends into your own home and have a workshop. You would be the Hostess, receiving the Hostess benefits, & you would also be the demonstrator receiving your instant income & commission.

All you need to do is place an order of $350 or more & you will not only receive a minimum of 20% discount, but you will receive a minimum of one free Level I Hostess set and a minimum of $35 Free product!

Q: How much does it cost to get started as a Demonstrator?

A: The Standard Starter Kit is only $379 (shipping is free!). It includes everything you will need to get your business up and running, including stamp sets, ink, paper, catalogues, order forms, training DVD, etc. Not only that, but you are able to choose which stamp sets and what colour inks and cardstock you would like. The Starter Kit has a retail value of over $655!

You also have the option of adding on Stampin’ Memories kit for only $90 (valued at over $63).

Q: What if I decide that I don't like it once I've started. Will I be penalized if I quit or is there a certain time frame I have to be a demonstrator?

A: You can stop anytime you choose. You simply just stop putting in your minimum sales. Stampin' Up! may send you reminders that your sales are due, but there won’t be any repercussions except loss of demonstratorship. But I guarantee you once you get started you won't want to stop!!

Q: Where will I get my ideas for my workshops?

A: Stampin' Up! has many resources for demonstrators. The Idea Book and Catalogue, the Stampin’ Up! web site, the monthly Impressions magazine, training DVD’s, Stampin' Discuss, and many demonstrator web sites. It is OKAY to copy your projects from these sources and use them at your workshops, just be sure to give the person who designed the project the credit. You do not have to do everything by yourself – we like to share.

Q: Are there any Stampin' Up! Events that I can attend as a new demonstrator?

A: Yes, almost all of them!! Every year Stampin' Up! has its annual convention. This year’s will be in Sydney in May. There are also Regional Seminars throughout the country every year and team trainings and seminars.

Q: How do I sign up?

A: Ask me for an application form. We will fill it in together and choose your stamp sets and card and ink colours. You can pay for it with a bank transfer or a credit card. Your kit will then be packed and dispatched to you in 1-2 weeks (depending on the Courier!)

You will find links at the side of this page to all of the application forms you will need.  Have a look and just ask me if you have any questions.

Personally I place all of my orders on my credit card and pay it off straight away with the money I receive from my customers. This gives me a double bonus as I also get points on my card.

Q: Do you really love what you do?

A: I absolutely LOVE what I do and I know you will, too. The friends I’ve made as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is an amazing bonus. I hope I have answered some of your questions. I would love to share this Fabulous Business Opportunity with you today!!! Please feel free to contact me!
