            Email:  

            - To keep our product prices low, no fees and a high commission we run our company a small team. This means that emails may take up to 72 hours to reply too, if there is a weekend or holiday the delay may be even longer. We try our hardest to reply as soon as we can. When you or customers email, we need as much information as possible. Name, order number and issue will be the three things that we need emailed to us or it could cause a delayed reply.   

            -releases-   

            As long as inventory is moving, we will have releases every Friday. We will make a post with what will be released.

            -Our Independent Brand Designer group is full of information, training and support. In these groups we want everyone to feel welcomed and supported so we will not allow drama or negativity. Since we will always be open for recruitment, we will always have new reps coming into the groups who need to feel welcomed and supported.  

            Our group is for Independent Brand Designers only. Anything we post that is a release may be shared with customers. We ask that you leave questions in the appropriate spot to make the group flow better. We do not discuss commission or order questions within our group.

Once your party is over you will need to contact us.  Our host rewards are 10% of the total sales.  

            As of right now USPS is delayed which could unfortunately result in your package being delayed by up to 15 days on just being scanned in. We are hoping things go back to normal and transit is done quickly again.
