One of the things I absolutely love about Chalk Couture is that there are so many ways to have fun with these products.
If you’re just looking for a creative outlet for yourself, to make home decor items or gifts, then you can just order what you want, when you want it....no obligations or commitments.
If you love creative DIY, would like to have a project on hand ready for when you have some spare time, and love getting happy mail once a month, then Club Couture is made for you!
If you can’t get enough of being creative, and want to get more for your money, you can join as an Independent Designer and get 40% off retail prices. Our minimum requirements to maintain your qualification as an active designer are very low.
If you’re looking to start a business, you have multiple options on what that business looks like, and how it fits in to your life, either as a part time gig or full time.
Pop-Up Shops and Home Parties
If you’re just interested in selling our Chalk Couture silkscreen transfers, Chalkology Pastes, and surfaces, you can setup home parties in people’s houses, and either sell from inventory you’ve ordered, take orders and place them in our back office for later delivery/pickup, or help them place orders online in your personalized Chalk Site, which is setup and managed for you by head office. You will receive 40% instant commission on any orders placed directly with you, and 25% commission paid on the 15th of the next month for any orders placed online.
You can also do this by setting up a Pop-Up Shop in your home or in a location that you have rented for the occasion.
- Expos/Markets/Craft Shows
You can register as a vendor at a show, and the structure will be the same as noted above. If you are going this route, be prepared to have enough inventory to make a splash, and consider offering a Make and Take or doing demos to show people the product and encourage them to purchase.
One thing to remember, is that Chalk Couture only allows one vendor per show, so make sure to check with the event organizer before registering.
- Make and Takes/Workshops
You can set up events where people can come to get hands on with the products and create something beautiful to take home with them.
You can structure this as either an Open House style Make and Take where you allow people to drop in and pay at the door for their choice of project, or setup a workshop where you specify the project and have participants preregister and pay in advance.
- Sell Finished Projects
Whether you make items to sell in your own store, or setup on FB Marketplace, Etsy, or eBay, there are so many amazing items that you can make with Chalk Couture.
You can certainly purchase the surfaces from CC, but you can also scout yard sales, estate sales etc and find wonderful things to chalk and turn into one of a kind decor items. The possibilities are endless, and the hunt is so much fun!
One note: you can only sell finished items there; you are not allowed to sell CC products such as the transfers, pastes, etc. on third party platforms or in permanent retail locations.
- Any Combination of the Above!
Most Independent Designers choose to combine two or more of these methods and completely personalize their business. It really is all up to you!
One more, really important thing to know about Chalk Couture is that if you become an Independent Designer, you will never be pressured to register other people under you.
Unlike some direct selling companies, CC does not pay you to enroll other people and strongly discourages Independent Designers from aggressively marketing to their friends and family by spamming them on FB and Messenger.
We encourage people to join by showing them how much fun the product is to use, but if all you want to do is play with chalk and transfers, with no commitments or obligations, have at it!
