It’s here! It’s the first day of Fall — and the first chance to be part of the new Zappy Dots!
Yes, you read that right! The iconic Zappy Dots is making a grand comeback, reimagined, and reinvented, and ready to sprinkle joy and creativity once again! But we’re not the ones making the Dots… This time, we are empowering YOU, our trusted friends, to carry forward the enchanting legacy of the Dot as a Dot-preneur or a Dot-thusiast.
We’re firm believers that all good things come in round packages — confetti, polka-dots, donuts, and of course, Dots! Who wouldn’t enjoy spreading a little Dot cheer with their customers and friends, and some additional holiday profits, too? Well, we’ve made it super easy for you! Doors are now open for our special Dot-preneur program, and the doors will close October 30, 2023 (or sooner if spots fill).
Our Dot-preneur Get Started Kit includes everything you need to start making and selling your own Dots. This offer is available until October 30th, 2023 — or until we sell out! If you’re interested, details can be found here:
Who is a good candidate for becoming a Dot-preneur?
In the past decade, many of you sold, inspired, or crafted with our Dots. They were cute, handy, and — as a business owner — downright successful! We’ve seen the spark of interest within our audience to carry forward the legacy of the “Dot”, and we’re ready to help you kindle that flame! We’re sharing the potential not only to carry on our profitable business model, but also build on it and create a new future for Dots — a new class of Dot-preneurs and Dot-thusiasts!
A Dot-preneur is the next generation of Dot makers. It’s a retailer, designer, or individual wanting to add something unique, fun, and truly profitable to their creative offerings. Here’s how Dots can help with holiday sales, planning, and profitability:
- Brick-and-Mortar Retailers: Sell holiday-themed designs or host a Dot Party where customers create their own magnet or Needle Nanny.
- Online Retailers: Add something new and unique to your product line.
- Designers and Artists: Quickly create giftable merchandise for your followers featuring your own designs, or make your own marketing merch for shows and events.
- Guilds: Handmade, sellable items for fundraising.
- Retreats: A unique and fun activity for your gatherings.
- Individuals: Participate in local craft or gift shows, or sponsor school, church, or sporting event fundraisers — or make your own custom gifts or host Dot Parties for kids, friends, and family!
What’s the Next Step?
We are opening the doors to “How to Be a Dot-preneur” and sharing all our secrets! Whether you’re a retailer looking to add a splash of color and creativity to your existing lineup, or a passionate individual ready to start a vibrant business, this is a seriously fun opportunity.
Best of all, the variety of designs you can create is endless — this is a business you can truly make your own. And if you’re not sure where to start with designs, well, we have that covered, too! We’re asking our loyal Dot-thusiasts to share their ideas for what they’d like to see and buy in their future Dot collections, and we’ll be sharing that information with our Dot-preneurs as well.
To get you started on this exhilarating journey, we have curated a Get Started Kit, encompassing everything you need to get the ball — or, ahem, the Dot — rolling. From high-quality Dot-making equipment to the materials and supplies you’ll need for a successful start, we have it all covered. We’ll also teach you the important how-tos, including: making magnetic Dots, Needle Nannies, and Magnetic Needle Tins; where to source supplies in the future; and how to host a Dot Party.
Because spots and supplies are so limited, please fill out this form letting us know you’re interested, and we’ll be in touch with all the important details: cost, what’s included, and shipping timelines.
