she has great ideas and doesn't skimp on product when showing us them.

has a birthday club where the month of your birthday you get its iether 40 or 50% off one item.

has not just workshops but monthly card or specialty classes.

she has all her workshops and classes at her place.

in a pinch she can find me anything.

always is appreciative of my business even the smallest orders gets a thank you wrapped chocolate or something.

she is freindly, outgoing and personalble

Sometimes they offer free shipping, independent of SU etc), but the other demos know that I have a "primary" demo and am just taking advantage of their camps and specials.
Thank you!

This is definitely a good reason to have more than one demo... I guess I just never thought of it as 'having a demo' when one goes to stamp camps simply to learn new things.

Have a FUNtastic day!

Well I guess I don't consider these people my demos- but I always put in orders when I attend camps, unless I am really broke. I know demos never break even on camps, even when they are $10 or $20 dollar ones.

Good luck with your business!
Just out of curiosity: what part of the stamp has latex? I know lots of "doctor gloves" are made of latex, but I wasn't aware it was in the stamps. Is it the part that sticks to the wood?

The stamps of made of rubber. I am allergic to rubber products including latex gloves, rubber bands, latex medical tubing and equipment, band aids (adhesive) flip flops (swollen, stinging, hot dog weiner toes are not fun!)

I use SU stamps with no problem. They have no odor and and I don't touch the rubber, just the wood mount. I would be extremely nervous cutting the rubber with my hands though. I could risk having particles in the air and just around which could be dangerous for me.

I don't know if the adhesive/foam is rubber but it also could very well be. I don't want to find out.

My demonstrator has a yearly customer appreciation night with draws for some of her extra sets and some of her cards. I live a long way away from her so she phoned me and asked me what set I would like and she sent it to me just for being her customer!

I belong to a 10-club, but my demo always tells me when she is putting in a supply order, in case I need something earlier than club.

She is willing to split paper packs with me (if she is buying them anyway, she will generally charge me 1/3 of the price for 8 sheets of paper; after all, who but a demo needs more than 8 sheets of Gable Green )

She asks all the hostesses in our club what they want to do for their particular month, so that we get a project that we like.

All her stamps are available for loan.

She lets us come over and play with her toys--sometimes she even feeds us! (and believe me, she is a GREAT cook!)

I do this. If they need a reinking I just have them bring the pad to my house and I'll inker it up for them!

while i know my demo can't afford to do much her friendship and enthusiasm for the prodcuts is nice enough. she will also split paper with me which who needs 40 sheets of going grey!....since she lives quite aways away she ships to where we live so we get our products speedily. and the we 'ups' (send them with her hubby) her stamps up to her. she has also offered to set it up so that four of us can buy the marker set and only pay $30 each time for four times and get the case for the marker set. she also advises of product availability and what she really loves/can't live without. i'm sure you will find many ways to make your customers very happy.

ps. i also sent her for her birthday a set of 6 cards that featured a certain fold/technique so hopefully she can be inspired.

I don't know why I didn't think of that. Duh....
That must be awful. My little niece has one of those extreme peanut allergies, so her mom has to read labels on everything to be sure she doesn't go into anaphylactic? shock.
I actually am amazed that you are able to use the stamps.
Sorry for the hijack.

I love my demo!
