POLICY REMINDERS: EARNINGS, LIFESTYLE, AND PRODUCT CLAIMS

We want to remind you of some important policies related to sharing Stampin’ Up! products or the demonstrator opportunity with others. When doing so, you need to avoid earnings claims, lifestyle claims, and statements that claim people may experience health benefits when using our products. When sharing the business opportunity with others, you should also avoid referring to the current pandemic or targeting those affected by the pandemic.

If you have specific questions about what is okay to say or post on social media, our compliance team is here to help! Please don’t hesitate to contact Demonstrator Support and they will gladly answer your questions.  

Additionally, in an effort to partner with demonstrators, our compliance team continues to proactively search for social media posts, images, and videos that may cause concern. They will reach out to demonstrators if they find anything questionable, misleading, or concerning. They are here to help; if you hear from one of our team members, please respond to them to quickly and remove or replace any posts in question. 

We encourage you to review your own posts and remove anything that implies earnings claims, lifestyle claims, product claims, or refers to the current pandemic in any way. 

Here are some additional details to help you as you evaluate your posts:

Earnings Claims: Earnings claims include providing false or inaccurate information. They also include sharing misleading or uncommon results that generally are not achievable without consistent and considerable effort over time. This includes posts with actual earnings and experiences, but those earnings and experiences are not common, or they imply results that are not typical of the average demonstrator. 

Lifestyle Claims: These include images, videos, or descriptions that imply a lifestyle enabled by earnings, rewards, or recognition from Stampin’ Up! that is not the typical experience of the average demonstrator. For example, you should not refer to the opportunity for incentive trips or other atypical recognition or awards when advertising the business opportunity. Images surrounding your recruiting efforts should not imply that joining Stampin’ Up! will provide the ability to acquire wealth, financial lifestyles, or exotic trips as a result of joining. You should also avoid implying any monetary gains outside the context of the work and time required to reach those rare achievements. Furthermore, anything that implies a recruit “doesn’t have to work,” can “fire their boss,” or “replace their full-time job” are all examples of misleading information because they don’t reflect the experience of the average demonstrator. 


Product Claims: This issue is likely more relevant to other direct selling companies in the health and wellness category but can still apply to us. You must avoid implying that any Stampin’ Up! products or activities cure or address any specific health or wellness issue. Please do not make any claims that the use of Stampin’ Up! products can replace or supplement any medical or emotional treatments recommended by a doctor or qualified professional.

Pandemic: The current Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the world. There are many who have been affected economically and in other ways. Do not focus on the current unemployment rates or imply our business opportunity can replace any previous income lost due to the pandemic. Please do not mention Covid-19 (or any of its associated names) or leverage current economic or medical concerns in your recruiting in any way. While we currently see Coronavirus being mentioned in almost all advertising for other companies, Stampin’ Up! demonstrators should strictly avoid it. We are grateful for your partnership in this effort and invite you to reach out with any questions.

PLASTIC LOGO BAGS PRICE CHANGE

Due to significant cost increases passed to us, there will be a price change for the Plastic Logo Bags (item 150897). We always evaluate price thoroughly, and after careful consideration we concluded that a price increase was necessary to continue offering the Plastic Logo Bags. We appreciate your understanding as we do our best to continue providing the products you know and love. Please find new pricing here

IMPRESSION MATS UPDATE

We want to keep you informed about the availability of the Impression Mats (item 149660). We are making every effort to release the Impression Mats but are still unsure of a launch date.
