Customer wants a starter kit

Renee Thompson
I have a customer who recently joined my monthly Stamp Club and she wants me to help her decide what items are good to start with. She is actually asking for a kind of starter kit.

I know that SU used to carry something like this but I am at a loss as to what to suggest that she buy. She plans on buying $25 worth of product every month for the next 6 months.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: SU!: Customer wants a starter kit

Well obviously anything you can do to get her to combine or up her orders in Feb and March to get SAB stuff would be a bonus for her (and you).

Things I would suggest: paper trimmer, snips, stampin' scrub and spray.  For cardstock, she can get the family packs to see which colors she likes the most and will use the most. Then she can check out the coordinating ink. Then show her some stamp sets that have coordinating punches so she can choose which combos will work best for her.  Then you can step her up to some embellishments.

Ask her what kinds of projects she most wants to make and show her how to build her collection so she can maximize the value of what she purchases.  Do that and she will buy from you forever!!!

There are a couple of different approaches:

 

1) Have her start with one of the project kits from SU! - this way she got coordinating items that all work together to create a project.  You can find a list of the kits inside the front cover of the Occasions catalog.  Or the My Paper Pumpkin pre-paid kits

 

2) Design a Kit with Stamps, Ink, Paper. 

Stamps: Have her pick a stamp set she likes.

Ink:  Black Memento Pad (for a line design stamp) & a few markers

          A few colors of ink pads (if it's a solid design)

Paper: DSP (the smaller stacks are nice) or a colored CS assortment and then a set of the notecards & envelopes (page 194). 

 

3) Once she's got a base of things, then start adding in tools - like the paper cutter, punches, etc.

I also think the kits are a great way to get started.

Here's another idea I did with one of my new customers.   She came to class, picked her favorite project from class, and bought the supplies to re-make that.  That way, she wouldn't have a mish-mash of things she had purchased, and would have everything she needed to actually make something.

She did this each month for a while, beginning to mix and match her colors from one month's project with another month's project, and creating new things.  It worked out very well for her, and because she was picking her favorite projects, she loved everything she was buying.

Re: SU!: Customer wants a starter kit

I agree with everyone.

First find out what she wants to do, but basic is our paper cutter is
a must. The best way for anyone to cut paper.  Add adhesive and a bone
folder and maybe the snips.

Now, does she want to make birthday cards for everyone. Then pick a
pack of paper, markers to match and a birthday set. I love Bolds for
Birthday cards and you can do any age both male and female. Do not
forget to add the Neutrals. Great layering even with the bolds.

Scrapbooking, the above is the base for BIRTHDAY scrapbook pages. Then
add an alphabet set, some 12x12 and off she goes. Project life would
also be good here. Basic and all the tools in one box.

Once she does the simple she will then know if she wants the Big Shot,
punches, all the colors all the paper all the STUFF.  Then she becomes
a crazy stamp woman like most of us are.

Is she a card person? or a project person?

Kits are a great idea.

Here's another, maybe she'd like.
when I first started I was so hesitant to buy a trimmer and big tools. If she isn't hesitant then go right ahead, and get her started the right way.

If she's hesitant:
pre-cut card bases and envelopes
whisper white card stock
black ink and Stampin' Write markers (think markers as small ink pads to brush on color)
   OR momento ink and a few blendabilities each month .
a versatile stamp set
gift her some of your scraps.

A mistake I made was buying colors I love from each color family. Instead encourage her to stay in a family (Basics, Subtles, Regals,  or 2014-2016 in colors (my fav).

getting her to spend $50 and SAB is a great idea.

Hope this helps.
