Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What are the minimum sales requirements?

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 orders or collect orders from family & friends to equal the $300 a quarter minimum, and you will remain active and receive all the resources!
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…or simply collect orders!! You would be the Hostess, receiving the Hostess benefits, & you would also be the demonstrator receiving your instant income & commission!!

Q: Do people really make money at this?
A: YES!! There are many demonstrators who make $5,000, $10,000 or even $15,000+ per month!! There are also performance bonuses (in addition to our regular commission) given for group and individual accomplishments. One is for Rising Stars…ONLY brand new demonstrators qualify for this one!!

Q: Where will I get my ideas for my workshops?
A: Stampin’ Up!, the internet & our Chics Paper Ink team have many resources! The Catalog, Chic n Clique, the SU! website, the bi-monthly demonstrator Stampin’ Success magazine, training videos & Stampin’ Connection to name a few! It is OKAY to copy your projects from these sources and use them at your workshops. You do not have to think of everything by yourself.
