New Annual Catalog Card Swap – Due May 1

New Catalog Card Swap

I’m hosting a new Stampin Up Annual Catalog card swap. Demonstrators can begin pre-ordering the new annual catalog on April 1 (no foolin’). The swap helps us prepare for ideas, classes, workshops, open houses and events celebrating the new catalog.

This swap is open to all demonstrators, all levels. Come join the fun.

Not a demonstrator yet? Get pre-order products in a demo kit. Joining as a demo is the BEST DEAL, and you can join, get pre-order products in your kit and use them to participate in our swap.


 

HOW TO SWAP

This swap is for 12 FULL CARDS (you will receive 11 back)

102619s

    • Retiring products

  • All swaps should be designed for upsell opportunities with our customers – please use layering and accessories. These cards should be the kind that make our customers want to make it themselves.

  • Attach or write your name and contact info (label) on the back of each card (a post it note or removable label is suggested). Supply lists and details are optional and always appreciated.

FAQ

  • Can I make more then 1 set of 12 cards?
    • You can make up to 2 sets of 12 swap cards.
  • What is the standard card size?
    • A standard card size is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ (folded in half) OR 11″ x 4-1/4″ (folded). You card may vary in size (for example 6×6). However, an ATC size and tags are not acceptable substitutes.
  • Where do you get the clear envelopes?
    • We sell them in the catalog #102619. All swaps MUST be in a Stampin’ Up! clear envelope, ready to display upon receipt. If SU! doesn’t sell the envelope, you may not use it.
  • I’m participating in another swap, can I use the same design?
    • No. Swap card designs MUST be exclusive to this swap
  • I’ve never done a card swap before and I’m nervous I’ll make a mistake
    • See the video of a past swap below to help illustrate how it is done.

SWAPS ARE DUE to me NO LATER THAN MAY 1 NO EXCEPTIONS.
Any swaps received after that date will be returned unopened.
Mail them early to avoid last minute stress.


How To Mail Card Swaps

  1. Place each individual swap card in a Stampin Up Clear Envelope
  2. Place each group of swap card in a gallon sized zip lock bag.
  3. Write your name on each zip lock bag.
  4. Include a SELF-ADDRESSED, POSTAGE PAID Return Envelope.
    • Please make sure return postage is attached to envelope.
    • DO NOT send money
    • DO NOT send loose postage in the envelope
    • The only thing in the envelope upon arrival should be zip locked bags with your name on them and filled with swaps. They are all opened at once and grouped anything additional in the envelope original will be thrown away.
    • If you are participating in multiple swaps, you may mail them all in the same package.

I highly recommend using the USPS Flat Rate Priority envelopes.
Please do not use the small priority boxes, your return swaps may not fit.

  • You can use click and ship labels on USPS.com. OR go to the Post Office.
    • USPS.com asks what date you are mailing and only gives 4 days out. This date isn’t important, you can still use it on your return envelope even if it’s weeks later.

ADDRESS WILL BE PROVIDED IN AN EMAIL AFTER YOU REGISTER
If you don’t receive the email, contact me at tami@stampwithtami.com
