When I was first presented the Chalk Couture business opportunity I had many questions. Since joining I’ve presented it to numerous others and they have the same ones. I’ve put together this post to answer these frequently asked questions in order for you to have the knowledge and confidence you need when you decide to join my Chalk Couture team. Please feel free to contact me if you need clarification, or further information.
If you’re ready to join my Chalk Couture team right now…….. simply click here.
Are there minimums as a Chalk Couture Designer?
As a Chalk Couture Designer, you need to submit 150PV (personal volume) per quarter. Chalk Couture quarters are standard financial calendar quarters (Jan- Mar, April-June, July-Sept & Oct-Dec). .
How to calculate personal volume
For every 6PV you will need to sell/order approximately $10 USD or $13.40 CAN. Therefore per quarter or every three months you will be required to sell $250 USD or $335 CAN to stay active. Pretty simple right!!
I see that there is a monthly fee of $19.99, what is that for?
The monthly fee covers the cost of your personal website, where you can accept orders, have people join your team etc. Your website allows you access to your “back office”. In here you can keep track of orders, team reports, commissions, training, social media images the list goes on!
US designers you also get a Point of Sale App. This is a Designer Only App that can be downloaded in the App Store for Apple and Android devices.
Do I get a discount on my own personal purchases?
Yes, you do…… and it’s a pretty sweet deal 40% off! Yes, FOURTY percent. That’s super awesomesauce, right? The prices you see in your back office as a designer already reflect the discounted pricing, so you don’t need a calculator when you’re making your personal orders. That also means you don’t need to wait to be ‘reimbursed’ through commission to get your discount- you submit with your discount already calculated which means less out of pocket.
But wait there’s more!! When you join, Chalk Couture gives you a one time use additional 15% to be used within the first three months to help kick start your business. And by the way, this purchase also goes toward your personal sales volume. pretty incredible right!!
How much is the Consultant kit?
In Canada we are lucky to have two kit options. The starter consultant kit is $129 CAN or $99 USD, plus tax and shipping. It comes loaded with a fantastic sample of transfers, surfaces, chalks and business supplies for you to hit the ground running. A full list of kit contents can be found here.
Our second kit option is the basic kit. Sorry if you are in the US, this option is only available in Canada. This kit is fabulous for the hobbyist who may not want to sell but would like to join to take advantage of the FABULOUS 40% discount. It is also wonderful if you would like to “build your own kit”. Maybe the items in the larger starter kit aren’t items you think you will use. In buying the basic you get still get the tools you need to start you business. You can then buy what you really, really NEED using your regular discount plus 15% bonus discout. Now that’s a sweet deal!
What’s commission will I earn as a Chalk Couture Designer?
When placing orders in your back office and selling to a customer at retail you will earn 40%. If an order is placed by your customer on your Chalk Couture Designer website, you’ll receive a 25% commission that is paid the following month on the 15th.
Can I earn other bonuses?
On top of your commission you will earn $20 Designer Dollars (product credit) for EVERY $200 PV you sell/order in a month. For example, sell $1,000 and you’ll earn 100 Designer Dollars!
To really kick start your business and a way to get lots of incredible product for FREE we also have our Designer Debut program. This program is for NEW designer and is so generous! This chart shows how it is broken up into 3 levels.

I’m not interested in selling… am I still able to join?
Of course!! We love hobbyists!! Sign up to get your awesome kit and you’ll then have a fabulous discount on all your purchase. However, you are required to maintain quarterly minimums and pay the monthly $19.99 fee in order to stay active.
Are consultants required to keep an inventory?
No, you are not required to carry an inventory. However, if you plan to do vendor events or run workshops, you may want to keep a few items on hand.
Am I able to resell the items I make using Chalk Couture products?
Yes, you definitely can. Some people work their entire business this way. They purchase transfers and chalk paste, create gorgeous pieces and sell those pieces. I would just be sure to mention that they are Chalk Couture designs.
