Default taxes/payments to SU

TIA!!!
You pay SU the cost after your 20% discount, so in this case, you pay SU the $35.06. It is a great way (imho) to cut down on the paperwork and payments necessary by SU.

With respect to the more general topic of being a demonstrator. I started demo'ing in 2003. I have had good quarters, great quarters, and slow quarters. SU is flexible enough that you can have a slow quarter, as long as you make up for lost time within the next month. Since I was in grad school for a while, this make-up time was very important.

I would recommend finding a demo near you or someone you feel comfortable with. Hobby demo's may not have as much experience, but are sometimes the most reliable, and informed, since they have more time to spend on SCS.

Good luck!
Jessica

I have a full time govt job in addition to my stamp addiction so I am a "hobby" demo. The discount is great plus I have met a TON of great people! I have a stamp camp once a month and the stampers order something every month with in addition to my purchases keeps me active and then some!
I am not sure if anyone said it yet or not, but you are able to swap items in the starter kit- you can substitute sets, etc. That way you might end up with less doubles of things. The cattys are good to trade as are the forms!

After months and months of thinking this thru, I finally sent in my papers Monday. How long will it take to get the kit? Also, is there any software that will help with all the "paperwork"? Would just a simple spreadsheet do the trick?

You should have everything within a week or two ... hopefully less. Once you get you demo number, sign up here on SCS for the Demo Boards. You'll find lots of helpful information to help you get started. The thread you'll need is
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...ad.php?t=82832

There are lots of solutions for the "paperwork". I use Stampers Sidekick which is a database program to keep track of everything. Others use Excel spreadsheets. It depends on your plans for your business. Again, lots more information and thoughts about these on the demo boards, so be sure to sign up for them.

I'm glad that I found this thread. I'm planning to sign up as a demo this month after the 15th. I'm so excited. I plan to be a hobby demo, but I have a couple friends that are interested in stamping so they may become customers. One of the girls is in the stamp group I'm in now and we'll continue to meet together each month to learn new techniques. I saw the post about the starter kit's having a lot of stuff we already have. I have most of the stamp pads and I already have the pastels, but since there are new colors in the new catty, I'm planning to substitute some of those new colors for what they offer that I already have. Same with the cardstock - I'm planning to get an assortment of the new colors. I'm so anxious and you guys have answered questions I didn't even know I have yet. TFS.
