Default TAC VS CTMH?

My Mom is looking at joining either TAC or CTMH. Please share any feedback you may have that might help her decide.

Which company seems to be more popular?

Thanks!
Sherry

I myself LOVE Close To My Heart I am not a demo just a lover of their products. I don't know much about TAC although they look like they have some very very cute stamps. I like CTMH's matching inks and papers and love their designer papers.....I have always been really please with their stamps.

I second the vote on CTMH... I am also a consultant, and LOVE their clear stamps, organizational products, and all the coordinating products. Plus, we just celebrated our 25th anniversary... I think that says a lot for our staying power.

Both TAC and CTMH have great products. Does she want to do it as a "hobbyist" or business? If it makes a differenace to her, TAC has much lower minimums ($100 every 4 months) vs. $300 a quarter for CTMH.

Both companies are super companies! For what I know about TAC.

We sell unmounted Rubber stamps that use a acrylic Block instead of a wood block.

Our stamps come with Creative Cling foam (Ez-mount foam)

We have scrapbook supplies as well as Stamping supplies.

As a Demo for The Angel Company you will earn 25% in commission on your retail sales.

TAC send out a Commission check twice a month.

You as a Demo will get 30% off your orders. Please note that this does not count toward your Minimums

Our sale requirements: $100.00 every 4 months.

When we do a sale we send in all the money you collect on your sale. then the commission check is mailed out to you.

It's not instant income!

Hobby Demo and Business Demo are treated the same.

We have some exclusive product.

It also matter who you sign under too! If you looking into joining TAC. Then ask a lot of questions...It's very important to do this.

I have been a Demo for both. I am currently one for CTMH. I stopped doing TAC because it did not meet my personal preferences. I loved their patterned paper which is very pretty. What I did not like is that they did not have their own line of coordinating paper products and ink. They used fantastic ink from several companies, but I am lazy and like having everything go together without thought. The DCWV paper they sold in packs had a sticker on every piece of paper. It greatly annoyed me having to remove that sticker and having sticker residue on my paper.

I think that CTMH is an easy company to work for. They have a great variety of products and prices. I like their coordinating inks and papers. I also am in love with their new pad organizer.

I like the CTMH ink pads, as well as I do the SU
TAC doesn't have a name on any of their stamp sets which I think
is inconvenient if your used to that.

I can only speak for TAC. I LOVE IT!! My minimum requirements are low, and it's easy for me to handle. But again, I'm only a hobby demo, so I'm not in it for the bookoo bucks. The founder also seems to be a Christian, which is important for me as well, as I know she does things for the good of the company, and not for the almighty dollar. But I do not know anything about CTMH...so I can only speak for TAC. Good luck in whatever one she chooses! Karen

I've been a TAC demo for 2 years (this month), and it's been great! One of the reasons I've been able to maintain my demo status is the low minimums. I find $100 every 4 months to be very "doable." Even when business is slow, I can make my minimums. With the way the economy is now, that is an important consideration. I was a demo with SU for a little over a year, but I couldn't maintain the $300 per quarter. I've seen CTMH products and their catalog, and they have wonderful products, but I wouldn't be able to maintain that minimum for very long. I wish your mom lots of luck with her decision and her new business.
