Question Clear somthing up for me - TAC & SU

I am about to become a TAC demonstrator since my sister is a SU demonstrator (well thats only one of the many reasons) any how, I'm not quite clear on the rules reguarding other company's. Is it still ok for me to use SU products and upload my cards here even though I will be a TAC demonstrator? I see other people doing it and I fear that I could be "turned in" to TAC if I did it? I know I can't push SU sales to my TAC customers, but what is ok and not ok reguarding other company's products for personal use and possibly to sell handmade things? Am I not able to sell cards made from SU things to local people while being a TAC demonstrator? what if I used SU paper and TAC stamps and sold it to a friend?? though I know I can use whatever I want on my personal scrapbooks. I was really surprised to see TAC demonstrators uploading SU cards, can I do this too? Help!!! I'm so confused on all of this!!

You can upload any artwork using any images you want, as you wish.

When serving in the official capacity as TAC demonstrator, at workshops, classes, camps, etc., however, it would not behoove you to demonstrate or promote anything non TAC, because you cannot sell it, if UKWIM?

Same for SU! demonstrators. It is in the SU! demonstrator contract that you are to promote only SU! products, when serving officially as an SU! demonstrator.

Have you checked your TAC contract? I'd be surprised if they do not require the same . . . ?

Thumbs up As a TAC demo!

As a TAC demo, You can only use TAC stamps and Supplies. At Workshops, fun shops. Classes, Stamp camps, etc.
No Retired Stamp sets or Supplies.
As far as selling your artwork TAC has a Angel Policy.
You can sell as long as it is HANDSTAMPED.
No special Stamp on the back of your cards artwork.
TAC encourages us Demo to sell our Handstamped creations for extra Money.
Just not at workshops, Stamp camps, etc.

Lightbulb Yes!!

Their are many TAC demo's that use stamps from other companies,
I am a Demo for TAC and I use stamps from other companies and list them here on SCS. And my Picturetrail site as well.
You may also sell your Handstamped artwork in Retail stores, online, Just about anywhere.

And another thing you are allowed as a TAC demonstrator is to have a booth at a craft show, have your handstamped items AND sell TAC at the same time. You can also have stock on hand to sell if you wish. You are not limited to either promoting business OR selling handstamped items.

Often at Stamping Conventions you will find TAC booths with make n' takes and the products used to make them for sale. Plus be able to book workshops, buy catalogues, etc all at the same time.

I re-examined your post and hope the following offers more clarity than my original response did.

I don't believe TAC would restrict their demonstrators from using SU! products in uploaded artworks to general public galleries; such restrictions would have a negative impact on being a TAC demo'r, UKWIM?

I can use any images I wish in creations I make, and upload, but when serving in the official capacity as an SU demonstrator, at a workshop, event, class, etc. I am permitted only to promote products that SU! carries.

Quote:

I'm sure you are permitted to use anything you wish for personal use, and for selling handmade things, as long as you are within the copyright/angel policy guidelines of every manufacturer whose products you wish to use, regardless of your status as a TAC demonstrator.

Quote:

Am I not able to sell cards made from SU things to local people while being a TAC demonstrator? what if I used SU paper and TAC stamps and sold it to a friend??
Yes, of course you can, again, as long as you are doing so within SU!'s and TAC's respective copyright/angel policy guidelines.

Quote:

Yes; they are not violating their TAC demonstrator contract in any way by uploading creations that use SU! images because they are not doing so under the guise of being a TAC demonstrator in some official capacity--just as stampers using products they love, whatever they may be.

Think of it like a hat you wear:

When you are doing TAC workshops, demonstrations, classes, etc. You wear your TAC hat and perform such work under the guidelines specified by your contract with the company.

Outside of that, you take the TAC demo'r hat off, and you're Susie Stamper, using what you like and enjoy, regardless of brand or company affiliation.

Does that make sense?

Julie is 100% right! You can stamp with whatever stamps you want as a demonstrator for TAC (and I'd hope for any other company!). I'm a prime example: I am a design team member for 2 companies that are completely seperate from TAC and a design team for a card kit company. I make samples for their websites, post cards to galleries made with their images and can even sell my handstamped items using the stamps!

Of course, I will not be selling them at my TAC workshops - nor will I use my TAC stamps on the cards that I make for those companies. And know what...both the companies know that I am a TAC demonstrator and it made absolutely no difference to them!

TAC (and I hope other companies) are not out there to 'stunt' your creativity by limiting you to specific stamps or products. In fact, I think it is better for a demonstrator to use other stamps and products because they use techinques they might otherwise not use. I feel I have grown as a stamper and therefore as a demonstrator because I have stretched myself creatively by working with different images and different styles.

Another thing that might give it a little perspective...say you are at TAC demonstrator and your friend sells SU!. You CAN have a party for her! You book a party just like if you were not a demonstrator for TAC. I have a friend that's a TAC demo and I was at her house about a month and a half ago for an SU! party!!!

In short....if you join TAC you are more than welcome to stamp your heart out with any other companies images. You can sell those things you make with the other companies stamps - as long as you are within their Angel policies of course.

I tell you what...any company that would restrict their demonstrators from using any other images wouldn't have hardly any demonstrators because now a days most of us that stamp are what I call "Liberated Stampers" - we stamp with what makes us happy!

That's cute! I think I like that better than what I always refer to myself as:

A non purist rubbah fun-addict. (chuckle!)
