Stampin' Up

Many of you emailed me and asked what the new changes were going to be. I just checked the official site of SU and the changes did go into effect and I will be terminating my business.
The main changes are that you are not allowed to design/promote any other companies products. I will not be giving up Susana's design team so it leaves me no choice but to quit SU.
The new demonstrator agreement has many changes in regards to blogs, facebook,twitter and etc.
I do love the products of SU but I personally can not comply with the new rules.

I was so hoping that it just turned out to be rumors, I may be right behind you. At least this mess led me to your fabulous blog, love your cards.

Annie said...

that is a shame Danni, but not altogether unexpected. I was considering becoming a SU rep here in UK but with these restrictions it's not an option.
hugs, annie x

Danni I don't blame you. It is not much fun not being able to create using other companies.

i just got off the phone with SU and i'm right there with you. i'll be dropping out myself! how sad!

hugs,

Anne said...

Ouch! There are far too many fun companies out there to agree to this. I think SU will lose a lot of people through this...

Lynette said...

Bummer for you. :( I wouldn't even have known if you hadn't had it on your blog. I guess I'll check it for myself and be done, too.

Sharon Caudle said...

WOW!!! That's a pretty harsh new rule. I'm afraid maybe they'll be losing a LOT of demonstrators with that one. They may very well end up rethinking that one. Sheesh! Sorry Danni!!! hugs!

Cindy Haffner said...

I'm right there with you Danni!! It's craziness!!!

That's too bad but I don't know how they expect people to be so exclusive.Love their products but I bet they will lose alot of business with this. Take care...

Hugs! The whole thing is dumb. Sorry you had to deal with it!

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

I am so sorry about this DAnni!! I know how excited you were to be a SU demonstrator. Not a smart move on the part of SU at all. They will be losing lots of business for sure!
hugs,
Chris

Beth Norman said...

Now isn't that the most ridiculous move for SU. What the heck?! I think they are shooting their own foot and will be losing out on lots of talent like you. So sorry things didn't work out.

Heather said...

I think there are a lot of people in your shoes. That really sucks that things didn't work out. Their loss, not yours!

Jaspere said...

I still can't believe it. There is going to be some turnover with the new contract. Wow!

Tasha Hickert said...

Danni,
I instantly thought of you when I read the agreement this morning. I'm sorry that you had to drop so soon after signing up. But I was pretty sure you would stick with Susana and your other endeavors. I love coming to see your creations. Now I guess it'll be like I'm living on the edge when I go around visiting my non-SU blogging friends!!

Justine said...

I actually popped over just now to see what you were going to do. I will admit that once again Danni, I admire your Grace. I am so angry with SU and will be interested to see who will even stay. I suspect that is their goal in the first place the ole' supply and demand trick, however, I will be turning my business elsewhere. What a sad thing

I'm with you all the way Danni!! I'm sure it was a difficult decision but I think you made the right choice!! I can't believe SU is being this BOLD ... they're going to loose ALOT of demo's ... shame on them!!

CLHAJNAL said...

Hey Danni,
I was waiting for someone to post about this. I don't think it's the smartest move for SU! to be making. I watched the video from Shelli and she will "Allow" us to refer very loosly to using other companies without directly linking or referring to them....I just don't know how that is going to go over. Hard decision.

Anita Hovey said...

A hard decision to make...I'm still not entirely sure what I will do but I keep looking at other demos sites who are in the same position as me to see what their take is...some are going, some are changing... I don't know what to do.
