Default SU Color families

HI all, I am going to sign up as a Su demo asap and I wanted some advice about which color inks to purchase with my big first order. Do recommend getting one enire color family or a few from each family? also, how do you feel about the new In colors? Should i demo with these or not bother since they will (probably) be out of the next catalog?TIA!!

I would go find examples of what you would like to demo to start with, and then choose those colors and sets. I would definately get Choc Chip since it's such an in color right now, and a couple colors that coordinate with it. Another option is to think about the coming holiday season and pick colors you can use for that type of demoing. Good luck! Oh, by the way, SU has quite a few examples on their site an in their welcome material that use the exact items that they recommend, so if you want ideas for stuff you know you will have, you could get what they recommend.

When I bought my kit (7 years ago), I made some changes without thinking about color. (I had never stamped or been to a workshop before... just signed up so someone would teach me to stamp!) So I ended up with SS cardstock and BB inks and it was hard to demo nice, coordinating projects. I would stick with one color family to show how easy it is to coordinate. That way you don't have to supplement your starter kit right away.
