UPDATES: OCTOBER 30, 2021: WEEKLY UPDATES

PREORDER AND COMPLIMENTARY CATALOGS


The 2021–2022 Annual Catalog will go live to your customers on 4 May 2021—but the demonstrator preorder period begins on 1 April 2021! This is a great time to try new products and start prepping for your events.

Note: Shortly after the annual catalog PDF posted, a complimentary copy of the catalog was sent to you via standard (bulk) shipping. If you do not receive your complimentary catalog by 30 April 2021, please contact Demonstrator Support. You can find a PDF of the catalog on the Catalogs page until your physical copy arrives.

Here are some other important reminders:

  • The mailing selector period ends 31 March 2021. You may place only one order during the open selection period, so make sure everything is correct before you close it.
  • Eight-packs of the 2021–2022 Annual Catalog will be available for purchase beginning 1 April 2021.
  • With the preorder coming soon, important news could come up that needs to be communicated right away. With that in mind, we may post some updates outside of our normal Weekly Update process. Remember to regularly check the website.

Visit the Catalog Details page for important dates and information.


MAKE SURE YOU QUALIFY TO JOIN US AT BACKSTAGE@HOME!


We hope you’re planning to join us for BackStage@Home, our virtual business conference for leaders this 26–28 August! If you already have a title of silver elite or above, clear your schedule to join us. If you’re not quite up to the title, make a goal to advance to silver elite by 31 May so you can qualify to register. If that’s a little too tight of a timeframe, don’t worry. If you advance in June or July and want to attend the event, you can contact Demonstrator Support and we will help you register. You can review the Title at a Glance PDF for information about the requirements for advancing to silver elite. 

Visit the BackStage@Home page here to learn more about the event.

DEMONSTRATOR SUPPORT IDENTIFICATION

In an effort to protect both demonstrators’ and customers’ personal information, our Demonstrator Support agents are now verifying calls with the last four digits of a SSN or SIN when addressing issues that are confidential in nature. These types of inquiries may include, but are not limited to, customer-related matters, team-related matters, ordering assistance, payment issues, and questions about personal sales and history. If you are uncomfortable using your SSN or SIN to verify your identity, please let the agent know that you would prefer to use two other identifying factors, such as the phone number on your account, your birthday, or your complete home address. Thank you for your understanding and we appreciate you working with us to keep your data secure.


NEW! SILVER TO SILVER ELITE TRAINING PROGRAM 


Exciting news for silver-titled demonstrators! If you’re thinking about (or are already working towards) advancing to the silver elite title, we have just launched a brand new, self-guided, self-paced support program especially for you! 

The new Silver to Silver Elite Program spotlights several essential areas of your Stampin’ Up! business that may need specific attention; these include sales, team building, leadership skills, personal development, and more. 

The focus of the program is to give you the training and encouragement you need to gain that all-exciting promotion to the silver elite title—all supported with lots of practical advice and examples taken from existing Stampin’ Up! leaders and industry best practices. 

We also invite our silver-titled demonstrators to join the Silver to Silver Elite Facebook page—a place where they can network with title-peers, support each other, exchange ideas, and discuss the program and any challenges they may face.

Sound attractive? It is! For more details, take a look at the Silver to Silver Elite Program in Stampin’ University. If you currently have the silver title, you’ll also want to look out for an exclusive email about the program and the Facebook Group.  

And there’s more! Since we’d love for all leaders (demonstrators who are silver elite and above) to promote this program to their silver team members and to support them in their endeavors to advance in title, we are also providing specific best practice and mentoring training for them, too, in the Leaders’ Lounge! 

We look forward to hearing about your progress. Best of luck to everyone who is on the path to silver elite!

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:

April #SimpleStamping Challenge

  • Theme: Thank You
  • Supplies: Stamps, ink, paper and favorite retiring item

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