UPDATES: September 29, 2020: Weekly Updates

JUST DAYS UNTIL THE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER SALE BEGINS!

Starting on 1 October, you and your customers can save 15% on select paper from our current catalogs! If you haven’t had a chance to learn all about the Designer Series Paper Sale, now’s the time to check it out. Spread the word to your customers, so everyone gets a chance to stock up and save on paper!

SPREAD THE JOY OF PAPER PUMPKIN!

Don’t forget to subscribe to this month’s one-of-a-kind holiday kit—and don’t let your customers forget, either! The subscription period for the Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin Kit ends on 10 October. For more information and resources to help you promote October’s kit to your customers, visit the promotion page!

FLEX POINT REDEMPTION REMINDERS

The last day to redeem flex points is 31 October 2020. You can view and redeem your flex points under Ordering>My Flex Account. 

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Read the descriptions and place redemptions carefully. All selections are final; there are no refunds or exchanges for any Flex Account items.
  • All flex items are available while supplies last.
  • The local currency value for product credits will be based on the payout factor in effect during flex point redemption (not the payout factor in effect when placing the product order).
  • Product credits purchased with flex points before 30 September will expire 31 March 2021. Those purchased in October will expire 30 April 2021.

FLEX POINT COUPON CODES COMING SOON!

To help you use some of your remaining flex points before time runs out, we’re adding last minute coupon codes to the Flex Account! These coupon codes will be 700 flex points each and will be available 7–31 October. One coupon code is good for $5 USD/$7 CAD worth of Stampin’ Up! products, and each demonstrator can redeem for up to three coupon codes. You can use these coupon codes yourself, or you can give them away! Because the coupon codes will be valid for a limited time period during the holiday season, we encourage you to give them to customers who might not otherwise place an order during that time. Let them know they can use the coupon code any time between midnight (MT) on 1 December 2020 and 11:50 PM (MT) on 31 December 2020. Then help them pick out some favorite products from the August–December 2020 Mini Catalog or annual catalog.

Once you redeem points for a coupon code in the Flex Account, you will receive a confirmation email; the confirmation email will not include your coupon code. Coupon codes will be emailed out around the middle of November. You will receive one email that includes all of your coupon codes. It will also include a printable coupon that you can give to a customer.

We hope this will help you use some of your remaining flex points, incent or reward your customers, and maybe even give your sales a little boost. Watch for coupon codes in the Flex Account on 7 October!

UPCOMING CHANGES TO INDEPENDENT DEMONSTRATOR AGREEMENT

We’ve updated our Independent Demonstrator Agreement (IDA) to align with new requirements from the Federal Trade Commission. The changes were significant enough to require all demonstrators in the United States to sign it again. Changes to the agreement include:

  • More definition to earnings and lifestyle claims in alignment with FTC requirements.
  • Updated language due to compensation plan changes. 
  • The mediation process.

The updated IDA will post 6 October. If you would like to download a copy of the current IDA, please take the time to do so before 6 October. Next week, we’ll post another announcement with instructions on how to review and sign the new IDA.

Please note that starting 6 October all new demonstrators who sign up will be asked to sign the new IDA. If you have new team members who sign up between now and next week, please let them know that they will be required to sign the new IDA when the updated agreement posts. 

If you have any questions regarding the IDA, please contact Demonstrator Support. 


WORLD CARDMAKING DAY IS ALMOST HERE!

World Cardmaking Day is this Saturday! Are you ready? Some of us are holding events a little early because we can’t wait. We’re making party hats, buying balloons—and the lemonade and cake are already in the fridge. 

Get additional details about World Cardmaking Day here. Extra tip: If you’re holding an event and your customers are hooked on cardmaking, be sure to let them know about the Designer Series Paper promotion happening now.

PREPARE TO PREORDER CURVY CELEBRATIONS

The preorder period for the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle begins 1 October! Don’t miss out on this exclusive bundle packed with creative possibilities. With curved-edge dies, festive stamps, and double-sided patterned paper, the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle will leave you crafting all season long!

IN COLOR PEN PACK NOW AVAILABLE

The In Color Pen Pack (155392) is now on the demonstrator website supply list and is available for purchase. See it here.

KEEP #SIMPLESTAMPING!

The joy of papercrafting is something we believe should be shared with everyone—and it’s the reason we started our #SimpleStamping campaign. By creating and sharing easy-to-make, inexpensive projects, our hope is to show beginner crafters how fun and easy papercrafting can be.

We’ve loved what you’ve been sharing, and we can’t wait to see more! We’re still sending surprises each month to a select number of participating demonstrators to thank them for posting their #SimpleStamping projects; have you shared yours yet? (Remember: We want as many people as possible to see your creation, so please share your card outside of the Demonstrator Planning Place to get as much exposure as possible.)

Here are the creative parameters for the next #SimpleStamping challenge:

October #SimpleStamping Challenge

  • Theme: Thank you
  • Supplies: Stamps, ink, paper, and ribbon

Remember to keep your project simple, share it using #SimpleStamping, and most of all—have fun!
