Default Stamp Camp Question

I have always kept my stamp camp projects & pretty much all the involved products a secret before the stamp camp.

I was wondering how other people do their camps? Do you show your customers the projects before? Does that boost attendance? or do people just decide they really don't "need" those supplies??

I have planned a camp with the project in the attached link and am wondering if I would get a better response if I showed people what they were making and told them what they would be receiving??

Thoughts, comments, suggestions???

Thank you!

That is a great little book! personally, I like knowing what I am paying for. My demos have always shared what the projects will be. I usually go even if I already know how to do what we are making! LOL

I have had many Stamp Camps in my time and I have never shown my customers what we were making until they got there. My attendance was always very high. They always liked the fact that it was surprise.

Good luck!

I am not a demo, but an attendee at some of these. I really think it depends on your client base. Have these people been to your camps before? Are they familiar with your work? Personally, if I've been to your camps on previous occasions and am familiar with your work and like it. Then a surprise would be fine. If I'm new to your camp and not familiar with your work I might want to see it ahead of time to make sure that we both like the same style. I also want to know what I'm spending my money on.

I did peek at your bag book and it's fabulous. I think if you showed something that great ahead of time, you'd get alot more people attending.

Just my 2 cents.
