What is an Independent Consultant?
An Independent Consultant is our term for anyone that joins Handmarks to sell our products to others and building your own team of Consultants should you choose. You are an Independent Contractor and not an employee of Handmarks, thus giving you all the benefits of owning your own business without all the overhead!
How much can I earn and how will I get paid?
At Handmarks, that decision is yours. Your earnings are based on your Personal Sales to customers and the sales of those in your downline that are also selling products.
Personal Commissions are paid twice a month and all Bonuses and Overrides are paid once a month after the close of the month.
How many hours do I need to work?
The beauty of this industry is you have complete control of when you work. You can work your Handmarks business around just about anything else you do in your life.
Is training provided?
Absolutely! You’ll find that Handmarks will continue to add to our training materials as we grow.

Customer Satisfaction Guarantee & Return Policy
Our customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us. We take great pride in using only the best materials and skilled craftsmen in our manufacturing and assembly process. Because each of our items have been touched by human hands, on occasion, something might slip by our inspectors. Should that happen, we would be happy to make it right.
We accept items for replacement or exchange for 60 days from the order date provided it is returned with your original receipt and has not been personalized. For products that have been Handmarked by Handmarks Inc to fulfill your order, provided they match the personalized details on your original order, we will gladly replace your item within 30 days of purchase.
Please bear in mind that our Vintage pieces are crafted from used silverware. They may contain minor surface scratches from normal wear. They reflect a part of the history of the piece. Vintage items are unable to be exchanged for those minor imperfections.
How many product releases will you have each year?
Our intention is to release new products at a minimum of twice a year. We understand the importance of giving our Consultants additional products for repeated business. We know once your customers own a Handmarks piece, they are sure to want more.
Can I sell online?
We encourage it! With having a robust replicated web site and the ability to set up events within your back office, you’ll be able to accept individual orders as well as hold virtual parties!
Will I have a website?
You will! Your replicated website, which allows your customers to shop or enroll on your site, is free for the month of enrollment as well as the following two months. Following that, it’s just $14.95 a month.
Are there sales quotas or minimums to get paid?
There are no sales quotas to get paid on your personal sales at Handmarks! Additionally, when you reach the level of Director in our Compensation Plan, there are no personal sales quotas required.
Do I need to carry inventory?
No, the decision on whether you would like to carry some inventory for things like events, expos, and fairs is totally your decision.
Are there territories?
You are free to sell and sponsor others anywhere in your country.
What forms of payment will the company accept?
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. As a Handmarks Consultant you may choose to accept a check or cash at a party and submit the amount due to Handmarks on your personal credit card.
Who pays for the Host Rewards?
While your Host will pay for any half-priced items earned and all taxes due, Handmarks will take care of the Free Product earned!
