Important Announcement: Stamp-a-faire Online Free Set Promotion

By July 11, 2011Stamp-a-faire

Many of you read the announcement that we posted back on June 9th regarding our upcoming online promotion to take place on July 23rd, the day of our Stamp-a-faire event.  After feedback we have received from customers, we have decided to revise our original policy on the free set qualification to benefit more people and eliminate the stress of ordering that weekend.

Here are the details of our revised policy & guidelines…

Perhaps you might not be able to make it to our Stamp-a-faire event on July 23rd and wish there was some way that you could get a copy of the limited edition stamp set that will be included in the goodie bags there?  Wish there was a way you could join in the fun?

We will be making the limited edition stamp set available to ALL customers who place online orders of $100 or more between 9am EST, Saturday, July 23rd and 11:59pm EST, Sunday, July 24th.

One free set per customer name with an order total of $100 or more. Customers placing more than one order will only earn a free set on their first qualifying purchase.  This free set has a $15 retail value and will be revealed in full at 9am EST, Saturday, July 23rd here on my blog.  Papertrey Customer Rewards Points will still be earned with this purchase.

We will also be hosting a:

Throughout the day of the event (July 23rd) you will be able to visit our design team members blogs and see projects created with the free set.  We will also be showcasing the make-n-take projects being taught at the event and issuing challenges to all of you with opportunities to win prizes.

—A complete schedule will be posted along with the free set reveal at 9am EST that morning.

—Twitter updates with photos and videos will also be made during the day of the event (viewable in the right-hand sidebar) to help you feel like you're joining in on the fun!

We hope that by providing the free set to an unlimited number of customers that weekend, everyone will feel as though they had the opportunity to qualify and ordering will be as stress-free as possible.  Thank you for all of your support and we look forward to providing this free exclusive stamp set in a few weeks!

    Oh, Nichole – thank you so much for doing this! It will certainly take the stress out of trying to be in the first 1,000 orders. This is just another example of why PTI is the BEST company! A big hug to you and your team!

    Oh, this is such great news! How nice to know that we’ll for sure get the free stamp with our order! Thanks so much, Nichole– you’re the best!
    Thanks, too, for all the online fun that you’re providing for those of us who can’t make it to Cincinnati! I’m having two of my fellow PTI-loving friends over that day to craft together and am really looking forward to it!

    Thank you so much, I was trying to figure out how in the world I could leave the camp site that weekend at 6am to find internet connection to make my order. Thinking “how am I going to be able to explain this to my husband?”. Thank you for taking that worry away so I can enjoy my weekend and not feel like I have to miss out entirely.

    Thank you Nichole & team! I’ve been trying to figure out what time I needed to wake up here in Hawaii to get my order placed. 3am or 4am? But now I don’t have to worry! Much mahalos!!!

    Also wanted to say that I wish I could be there for the Stamp-A-Faire. Im sure it’s gonna be a LOT of fun! Looking forward to the twitter updates!

    Wow Nichole!! Another reason I LOVE PTI!! I think some people were panicking (me included) that we couldn’t click send fast enough to be one of the first 1,000 orders that day (I’m guessing that could happen within an hour! or less!!) Once again, customers voice their concerns and PTI comes to the rescue!! That is so generous of you to do too!! Thanks for listening to your customers! PTI is THE BEST!!!

    I’ll be making my purchase at Stamp A Faire so wasn’t worried about this personally, but wanted to say that I’m so impressed with your generosity in extending this to all orders that day rather than a limited number. Most companies would not worry about pleasing everyone enough to change a giveaway. Just another reason that almost all of my stamping dollars are spent at PTI.

    Nichole, thank you so much for this generous change in your plans for the 23rd. I have been so bummed that I didn’t get a ticket to come to the Stamp A Faire and figured that everyone else was in the same boat, being the first 1000 was going to be a ‘long shot.’ I only hope that the Stamp A Faire is a HUGH success and another one will be planned. Besides the fun day, getting to meet the DT gals in person would be the highlight of my YEAR!! Again, thanks for this great post. You made my day.

    Nichole/PTI, thanks for allowing everyone to feel that they can play along with the Stamp-A-Faire and recieve the free stamp set! When it was only limited to the first 1,000 I wasn’t sure if it was worth placing an order, but now I have my list ready:0) Wish I could be at the actual event in Cincinnati, so that I could meet everybody but this is a nice consolation prize.

    Laura Isham says:

    Oh good! I feel much less stressed already! I’ve been saving up so I could make the $100 mark since you announced the free stamp set promotion. I would have been really upset if I didn’t get one of the special stamp sets. Thank you!

    Thanks so much, Nichole!!! I can’t imagine how disappointed I would have been with not getting a set when I truly wanted it……You are the best! Now the hop, too! Couldn’t be any better…….Well, if I were able to attend, it would be…

    Nichole, that’s just awesome! Thanks for listening to your customers – so many companies just wouldn’t care! Now I don’t have to wake up at 5 30 am to put in my order!!!!

  • 22

    Nichole, you and the rest of the team are the absolute BEST! I’ve been worrying about having to get up early enough to place an order. I was also worried about being the 1001st person to order and miss out on the stamp set! Your news has put me at ease. Thanks for listening to and caring about your customers.

    GinaE. says:

    Thanks so much, Nichole! My concern was “what if I order at 8:59a.m. based on the time on the PTI server and it’s 9:02 on my computer. But if I wait until 9:05, what if I’m TOO late?!” IT Geek in me worried about that kind of stuff. Thanks for taking the stress out of it for everyone! Y’all are truly da bomb-diggity!

    Thank you so much Nichole for making this offer. I was so disappointed when the event sold out before I could get my ticket. PTI is the best and making it possible for all to play along too. 🙂

    Hats off to PTI again ~ just one more way that PTI shows its superb customer service by giving everyone a chance. I’m sure the Stamp-A-Faire set will be a BIG hit. Now we don’t have to worry about overloading the system all trying to hit the submit button to be in the first 1000. Thanks so much for going above and beyond!

    Carolyn Y says:

    Thank you Nichole for making the change so that everyone who orders will receive the free stamp set, instead of the first 1,000 customers. I was trying to figure out how I was going to order since we are driving back home from Orlando on Saturday, July 23rd. This is a 14+ hour drive. Now, I can place my order after I get home.

    Thank you so much for making this change. It is nice to know that making a $100 purchase will guarantee the special stamp set. I am looking forward to the day even though I won’t be in Cincinnati.

    I am simply repeating what others have said. I was really disappointed that I did not call soon enough for the Stamp-a-faire. I hope that you will consider having more of this type of event. (even regionally to make it even better!) So, at least I have a shot at the special stamp. I wasn’t even going to try to be one of the first 1000, as I figured that may be as difficult as getting a Stamp-a-faire ticket!

    Woo hoo! I will be in my car en route to Texas from IL on the 23rd and was hoping I’d have 3GCS service so I could try to place an order via my Kindle. LOL! I’d much rather be there in person – but will live vicariously with the Stamp-a-faire set! Thanks so much!

    Good news, I hope that if I wait to place my order for the 15th that things are still in stock? I do have my wish list to use if I have to wait to get things.

    Karen H. says:

    Thank you thank you! I could not come to Stamp-a-Faire this year (hopefully next year), and I’ll be out most of the day so ordering for a free set was going to be near impossible. I’m so glad you changed the rules!!

    This is great news! Thank you for thinking about our stress levels! Hopefully this will benefit you as well. I know I will be making a very rare $100 order.

    Martha S. says:

    Wow! Thank you so much for your generosity here! There was no way I was going to wake up at in the middle of the night to place an order just to get a free set, so I had already resigned myself to the fact that I probably wouldn’t get one…maybe I didn’t need to order anyway?

    Well with this announcement, that changes! I’m so excited that I’ll definitely be able to get the free set so off to fill up my cart I go…
