What is Designer Début?
At Chalk Couture™, we know a strong start builds a healthy long-term Designership, and we want that for you! Start strong and get rewarded for sharing the products and opportunities you have fallen in love with by completing the Designer Début program! The program helps you achieve exciting rewards during your first 90-plus days with Chalk Couture.

How does the Designer Début program work?
Each phase of our Designer Début program rewards you for selling 400PV* per month in each of your first full three months.* The rewards scale each month you achieve 400PV during the program and are always paid out in Designer Dollars (DD)**, or Chalk Couture product credit.

You can earn more Designer Dollars when you sponsor new Designers during your Designer Début window—when they begin selling, you’ll be rewarded!

Sponsor a new Team member during your first full three months, and when they remit a minimum of 100PV total by the end of their first full month, YOU will receive 30 Designer Dollars!

Due to current interpretation of Canadian law, Canadian Designers may not participate in the sponsoring component associated with the Designer Début program.

The sales rewards and requirements are as follows:


Starting late? No problem! The program really rewards you for selling consistently over your Designer Début period, but is also flexible and will match everyone’s personal goals and commitment—submit 400PV in just one of the three phases and you can earn the 20DD reward! Submit 400PV in two of your three Designer Début months, and you’ll earn 50DD (20DD for the first month and 30 DD for the second)!

*PV: Personal Volume. Used to calculate quarterly activity and monthly qualification, as well as to maintain title. PV is always connected to 60% of US retail, regardless of source (Chalk Sites or the Designer office).

**DD: Designer Dollars. Product credit redeemable only with Chalk Couture. Non-transferrable, expire 60 days after issuance, issued online. Designer Dollars are a form of compensation and are issued at each country’s currency to their dollar.

How do I earn the Designer Début sponsoring reward?
In addition to the bonus DD you can earn through your personal sales, the Designer Début program also includes a reward for sharing the Chalk Couture opportunity and growing your Team. When you welcome a new Team member during your Designer Début period, and they submit 100PV before their Designer Debut Phase 1 deadline, you earn 30DD!

There is no limit to the additional rewards available through sponsoring (if you sponsor three Designers who all sell 100PV in their Phase 1, you’ll earn 90 additional DD!), so don’t be shy. Share the opportunity, grow your Team, and learn to be successful together!

Due to current interpretation of Canadian law, Canadian Designers may not participate in the sponsoring component associated with the Designer Début program.


To earn the sponsoring reward, does my new Designer have to submit all 100PV in the same month, or can they accumulate PV over multiple Phases?
Because the first phase of Designer Début includes the remaining days in the month a new Designer joins, PLUS their first full month, PV will accumulate across those two months. However, their 100PV must be completed during their Phase 1. (Please note that this does not apply for sales rewards offered in Phase 2 and Phase 3. The PV required in those Phases must all be submitted in a single calendar month.)

Can Canadian Designers still sponsor new Team members during Designer Début?
Yes! Canadian Designers may sponsor Team members at any point in their Designership, including during Designer Début. However, due to conservative interpretation of Canadian Government regulations, the rewards associated with sponsoring are not awarded to Canadian Designers.

When will I receive the Designer Dollars I earned?
Your Designer Début rewards will be paid to your account (accessible in your Designer Office) at the commission run in the month following the month they were earned. For example, if you earn your first 20DD in September, those Designer Dollars will show on your account beginning October 15.

Your DD for earning the sponsoring reward will be paid as a part of the commission run in the month after your Team member submitted 100PV. For example, if you sponsor Sheila on October 10 and she submits 100PV in October, you will receive your sponsoring reward on November 15. If she submits 50PV in October and 50PV in November (her Phase 1) to total 100PV, you will be paid 30DD on December 15.

Do I have to achieve the sales requirements in Designer Début in order to earn the additional DD for sponsoring?
No. You do not need to participate in the sales portion of the program to earn sponsoring rewards.

How long is each phase of the Designer Début program?
Phase 1 begins the day you enroll and then runs through your enrollment month PLUS the next full calendar month following your enrollment month. Phases 2 and 3 each last a full calendar month.

For example, if you enroll on April 1, Phase 1 can be completed during both April and May. Phase 2 begins and must be completed during the month of June. Phase 3 begins and must be completed in the month of July.

If I enroll mid-month, does my deadline for Phase 1 change?
If you enroll later in the month, you have the rest of that month plus all of the next month to complete Phase 1. Phases 2 and 3 will follow in the consecutive months. For example, if you enroll on November 18, you’ll have the rest of November and all of December to complete Phase 1. Phase 2 must be completed in January and Phase 3 must be completed in February.

If I complete Phase 1, but not Phase 2 or Phase 3, do I still get a reward?
Yes! If you only complete Phase 1 in the time allotted, you will receive the Phase 1 reward of 20DD. You will not receive the rewards for Phases 2 and 3.

If I complete Phase 1 but miss Phase 2 and then complete Phase 3 what will my rewards be
When you complete Phase 1 you will receive 20DD. No Designer Dollars will be paid for Phase 2. When you complete Phase 3 you will receive 30DD (the second achievement payout).

Design. Love. Repeat.™
