1) Retail info: Special Pricing & Terms for Venue-Partners

Special pricing and terms apply only for volume that features your venue. We’d love it if you could help us retail others, standard retail terms apply.

“Sell like your standard merch (but with better margins, no up-front cost, and smaller bar-top display) — and you’re never stuck with too many extra random xtra-small t-shirts!”

Matt Dowgwillo, Founder

Why should you sell Craft Notes Passports?

💰 FREE MONEY! GREAT MARGINS / SPECIAL TERMS (Preferred wholesale pricing for included partners)

50% MARGINS. YOU KEEP HALF OF ALL RETAIL SALES!

Special pricing options for partners maximize revenue by retailing Craft Notes. All partners get ~50% off the retail pricing — meaning 100% markup and pure profit.

FREE, CUSTOM WOOD COUTERTOP DISPLAY

All partners will receive a free, custom, wood display. It just looks cool:)

It’s designed to sit near your cash register or display nice on a retail wall. It only takes up less than 6″x6″ — meaning you have big profits with a tiny item-footprint.

ABSOLUTELY NO-RISK (Return what you don’t sell)

Pay for what you sell, return the rest!

We know you’ll sell them all, but on the off-chance you don’t, we’ll accept returns on any consignment, so just return what you don’t sell along with payment for what did (and profited on) – As I said: Craft Notes is the best program you will ever do. We want you to profit and we’ll never leave you with unsold merchandise.

(order consignment below)

😊 SUPPORT YOUR GUILD / LOCAL CRAFT COMMUNITY / PERSONAL STORY

The Revenue from the books you sell goes back directly to supporting your guild and other local charities

We share revenue with your local guild to ensure money directly supports you and the industry/initiatives. Splits are approximately:

50% – YOU KEEP
25% – We Keep
25% – Guild Keeps (or charity)

We ask that you only support our program to ensure maximum revenue goes back into your pocket and supporting initiatives of your guild/local charities.

By helping spread the word, we are also helping to educate consumers about what makes supporting local businesses so important and highlights the uniqueness and contributions of each.

3) Tips to maximize sales

Of course, we’d love to hear what’s working with you, but here are some tips from other partners about how to maximize sales and revenue.

At your Venue

  1. Run a Promotion on your receipt. This is great because it is a great up-sell AND it guarantees that person will return; Multiple visits is a great way to make them a regular!
  1. Place on the counter by register. This ensures people see them and offers a great upsell.
  1. Educate your staff. It gives them something to engage customers with and it lets them know you support the guild.
  1. Add button to POS. Whenever you give a discount, you should try to track party size, spend, etc. for Craft Notes customers. We estimate you should see ~$14/beer. It’s also a great time to up-sell to friends that aren’t holding a book.
  1. Package with other shop items. Don’t just sell a $25 passport OR a $15 growler, Sell both by offering them a beer right now or some other low-cost incentive that adds revenue and seems like an unbeatable offer.

Online/Social Media

  1. Add Passports to your Online Store. This is great because it is a great upsell AND it guarantees that person will return; Multiple visits is a great way to make them a regular! (Copy & Pastable Assets make this easy to set up)
  1. Package with other shop items. Don’t just sell a $25 passport OR a $15 T-shirt, Sell both by offering them free shipping or a free beer when they pick it up on-site.
  1. Run a plug on Social Media. Make sure to tag us (@craft_notes) and we’ll repost it too to help you profit even more!
