In 1988, actually, two sisters dreamed of being able to express their creativity while establishing meaningful relationships. Stampin’ Up! is the culmination of that dream. Nearly three decades later, tens of thousands of people around the world are living the dream themselves, using Stampin’ Up! products to express their own creativity through handmade cards, papercrafting projects, memory keeping, and home décor.
The company’s mission is simple, as detailed in its Statement of the Heart:
To love what we do and share what we love
As we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments.
In this we make a difference.
Stampin’ Up! products are available for purchase through a network of independent sales consultants called demonstrators. You’ll find our demonstrators, and products, in the United States and Puerto Rico, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Austria, the Netherlands, and Japan.
