How to Become a Creative Arts Demonstrator

How much can I earn?

You'll earn 25 % of all your personal net sales of mounted stamps and accessories plus 15% of all personal net sales of unmounted plates.

In addition, as long as you make at least one sale every three months, you can earn additional income through override commissions -- AND -- you'll be able to purchase your own stamps and supplies at a discount of 30% for mounted stamps/accessories and 20% for unmounted plates.

Do I have to maintain monthly sales minimums or recruit a certain number of people?


As previously stated, Elderberry Knoll is about providing the opportunity to experience the magic of creativity. Although we intend to make a living while carrying out our mission, we do realize that many people become demonstrators as an adjunct to their stamping or related creative hobby. That's fine with us! If all you want is a little extra "stamping money," go for it!

What companies do you carry?

We carry the following catalogs/companies:

The Elderberry Knoll catalog contains:

Are these stamp companies "angel"?

The majority of stamp lines that we carry ARE angel. For the few that aren't, their policies and procedures for using their stamped images in making items for resale are included in the front of our catalog.

Is there a Hostess Incentive/Reward program?


The Hostess Package:

Anytime someone hosts a party, she receives the following:

  1. Invitations to send to her guests.

  2. Ten percent of the amount of merchandise purchased at her party in free merchandise. (This includes any pre-party sales too).

  3. Free shipping of her order.

In other words, if her guests purchased a total of $300 in products, she would receive $30 in free merchandise. There are no minimum dollar amounts required in order for the hostess to earn her discount. So, if the total net sales for the party was $50, the hostess would still get $5 in free merchandise!

We also recommend the following:

  1. A free catalog.

  2. The hostess gets any projects you make during the demonstration.

  3. A hostess gift.

At the end of the party, it's a nice touch to give the hostess a small gift. It's especially meaningful if it's something you made such as a stamped post-it note holder, a stamped stationery packet, or perhaps a pretty candle.

It seems like there are a lot of other companies out there who offer bigger rewards and incentives. Why don't you?

The main reason is because we can't afford to! LOL.

Most other companies doing this sort of business manufacture their own stamps and are much bigger than we are. Since we purchase our stamps and supplies at wholesale prices, our gross profit margin starts out small. Once you earn your commissions and override commissions, it becomes even smaller.

We did the math on a stamp that retails for $15.00 and discovered that our GROSS profit margin (after paying the wholesale price for the stamp and subtracting demonstrator commissions and override commissions) was $2.88!

We're starting off as a tiny company with a big mission: to provide the opportunity to experience the magic of creativity that exists within all of us. We are planning on growing into a big company that stays true to our roots and our purpose. We have a lot of exciting work ahead of us and we hope you decide to join us on this journey.
