- 1. What will I do as a demonstrator?
Only YOU decide the level of business you want to pursue as a demonstrator – whether you want to keep this as a hobby or a flexible business of your own. You can share the art of rubber stamping with family and friends through home workshops and selling product through the catalogue. You can also help others enjoy the fun and flexibility of running their own Stampin’ Up!® business. Other options are teaching group or 1-on-1 classes, selling your hand-stamped creations and doing custom cards & scrapbooks for others. Demonstrators choose their own hours and arrange their work schedule to best suit their needs. Thousands of women and men have achieved their personal goals through Stampin' Up. I know I have and I've loved every minute of it!
- 2. Will I receive support and training as a demonstrator?
By joining, you will become part of my “Canadians, INK!” team and I'll be here to help you with anything you need. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend Stampin' Up! training events including our annual convention and smaller regional events held around the country. On top of that, Stampin’ Up! provides dozens of training resources to help you run your business, including magazines, Demonstrator Support agents, a demonstrator-only Web Site, thousands of samples, bi-annual and seasonal catalogues, a training DVD, the Demonstrator Manual, a Product Guide, and six monthly newsletters designed especially for new recruits.
- 3. How can I make money as a demonstrator?
Since customers pay you directly, you will keep 20 percent of each order placed at the time of their payment. You can earn additional money (5 to 20 percent) through monthly volume rebates when your monthly totals are $550 and above. In addition, you can earn monthly downline overrides when you meet certain requirements. Again, if you choose to teach classes or sell your cards, you can make an income through those activities as well.
- 4. What makes Stampin’ Up! different than other companies?
In the last 20 years, Stampin' Up! has become one of the top companies in the paper-crafting industry, developing a reputation for quality products, innovative techniques, and unparalleled support for its demonstrators. Our relationship focused business helps demonstrators to make a difference in the lives of others by sharing what they love.
- 5. Will I have to stock inventories of product?
No. You will only order items when someone places an order and pays you in advance, so you won’t need to keep in inventory of products.
- 6. Will I be trained to use high pressure sales pitches to sell and recruit?
Stampin‘ Up! does not embrace high pressure sales pitches. Instead I’ll teach you to maximize sales by giving helpful advice to your customers. I'll also help you identify ways to share the Stampin’ Up! opportunity with others.
- 7. What is my cost to become a demonstrator?
To become a demonstrator, you need to order one of Stampin’ Up!’s special Starter Kits. There are 2 different kits you can choose from: the Standard Starter kit or the Digital + Starter Kit. Both are only $215 with a value of over $375. There are no annual renewal fees however if you live in Manitoba or New Brunswick, there may be additional licensure necessary.

- 8. Are there any additional Add-Ons I can purchase?
If you’re interested in scrapbooking, you can select the Stampin’ Memories Add-On for an additional cost of $60. If you are interested in Home Décor, you can choose the Definitely Decorative Add-On for $45. These are both optional but would need to be ordered at the time of joining up.
- 9. What do I have to do to stay active as a demonstrator?
To stay active you will need to sell a minimum of $400 per calendar quarter. Since the average Canadian workshop total is $400, most demonstrators find that this goal can be reached in one or two workshops. If you are not interested in doing workshops and placing orders, you can simply let your demonstratorship lapse and you keep your starter kit contents – no penalties. What do you have to lose?
