Top 5 Reasons To Join Us!

When you purchase the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Starter Kit you start enjoying one of the best reasons to join Stampin’ Up! right away – FREE products.

The demonstrator starter kit is just $99 and you get to select $125 of Stampin’ Up! products of your choice to create this customer starter kit. This kit starts the savings and benefits of being a demonstrator by giving you $26 in free products. And, you also get a FREE Paper Pumpkin kit in your starter kit – more free products!

Who can refuse FREE products? Plus, as a demonstrator, you can also receive Stampin’ Rewards (more free products) whenever you place a $150+ order.

Everyone loves free shipping and once again, Stampin’ Up! delivers! Another one of the reasons to join Stampin’ Up! is because you get free shipping on your demonstrator starter kit.

I like to think of the starter kit as a $125 shopping spree because you get to select whatever products you want. It’s just like placing an order, but you don’t have to pay shipping.

Free shipping on the starter kit is another $13.75 savings. So add that to the $48.50 in free products, you just saved $62.25 ( plus a little bit more in sales tax)

The savings only begins when you purchase the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator starter kit. Once you order your kit, you can then place additional orders as a demonstrator and receive a 20% discount on everything you buy. If stamping is your hobby, this is the best way to get all the products you love.

Why pay full price when you can get everything at a discount? This is just one more of the fantastic reasons to join Stampin’ Up!

Everyone who joins receives the 20% discount, but you can even work up to a 25% discount on your purchases!

When you join Stampin’ Up! with Stacie you become a part of the Cici’s Crafty Creators Demonstrator Team. We are HOBBY STAMPERS and BUSINESS BUILDERS.

There are so many benefits to joining the Cici’s Crafty Creators Team. We have something (or a lot) for everyone!

We welcome everyone to join Stampin’ Up! and the Cici’s Crafty Creators and there is never any pressure to sell, teach, demonstrate or have a business – UNLESS that is what YOU want to do! Many join for reasons listed above, and because joining truly is risk free.

When you join Stampin’ Up! by purchasing the starter kit, you will be able to take advantage of all of the benefits of being an active Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for at least four months. (actual time depends on the month of the year you join).

If during that time, you submit orders for yourself or customers of at least $300, you get to stay another three months and keep your discount and benefits. If not, that’s OK – you just go back to being a regular full-price paying customer.

Frequently Asked Questions About Becoming a Demonstrator

Your Title Goes Here

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

What are the minimum sales requirements?

You only need to submit 300 CSV (Commissionable Sales Volume) 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 (or 25 percent if you become a bronze elite title or above).

What requirements are there to be a Demonstrator?

The only requirement to remain active is to make your quarterly minimum. If you can’t make your quarterly minimum you’ll go into pending. If you are unable to pull out of pending Stampin’ Up! will turn off your demo id. You are always welcome to join again!

What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?

Stampin’ Up! & myself support 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 quarterly sales minimum.

Can I join Stampin' Up! and enjoy it as a Hobby Demonstrator?

Yes, Absolutely!! I welcome hobby stampers!! That is how I started. Joining Stampin’ Up! will give you the opportunity to meet other stampers, pre-order new products and receive discounts on products.

Do I have to sell Stampin' Up! Products?

No, you can join as a hobby demonstrator.

Do I have to host classes or do workshops?

You may choose to stop at any time, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator. If you have any questions about Stampin’ Up! or becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, please contact your demonstrator.
