WHOLESALE ORDERING WITH THIMBLEPRESS®
Hello! We are so excited you are looking into carrying our brand! We look forward to learning more about your store/organization and building a successful partnership! We know that you’re excited to get started, but for speedy account approval and order processing please read and familiarize yourself with our wholesale policies below!
To place an order, view wholesale pricing, or access our online catalog, you must first be a registered and approved retailer. If you’re not registered and would like to be, please see directions below. Please note in order to be approved you must have a working URL for your store or you may send us photos of your storefront for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online retailers carrying Thimblepress® products are required to include the Thimblepress® name in the product title or in the product description. Once you are approved as an online retailer, you may only sell on the URL that is submitted and approved through your wholesale application. Accounts may not utilize national/global selling platforms, including but not limited to Amazon.com, Ebay.com, ETSY, JET, Shoptique, etc. Failure to comply will result in your wholesale status being revoked.
All Thimblepress® products being sold online must state: “created by Thimblepress®”.
SIGNING UP FOR AN ONLINE WHOLESALE ACCOUNT
You can apply for a wholesale account with Thimblepress® (and receive access to our current catalog) by filling out the form on our wholesale page. After completing the form, create a user account on our website by clicking on sign in/register on the top right hand side of the website. You must complete the form AND create an account on our website in order to move forward within the approval process. Once you complete both, we will notify you in 1-3 business days with the status of your account application. Once approved, your account will change from ‘subscriber’ to ‘wholesale buyer’ and you can begin shopping wholesale through our site!
