Thank you for stocking Lucy Gell products. This page is designed to keep you informed of trade ordering details. It will tell you what products you can expect to order from me, what discounts are available and what restrictions there are in order to obtain those discounts. There is also a detailed explanation of how to place your order.
Please read these details carefully before placing your trade order otherwise your discounts may not be applied correctly, or your order could be rejected if it does not follow my trade guidelines.
Trade Ordering Overview
Stockists can place orders directly on my website in the same area as customers. As a stockist you can order any product that a public customer can order, however certain quantity limits may apply as detailed below. Trade discounts will vary depending on the product category ordered as detailed below. Stockist are only allowed to order ‘Single Item‘ product variants. They cannot order multipacks or product variants that offer other discounts such as 2 card pack, 3 card pack etc. Use the quantity field only to state how many items of each product are required and select ‘single item‘ where appropriate in the dropdown box.
In order for your product to qualify for stockist discount you must reach the minimum order value before applying your discounts or discounts will not be applied.
Minimum Order Value
In order to accept an order and apply stockist discounts your order must reach a minimum order value of £300 RRP. This does not mean the order will cost you £300 it means the retail value of the order is £300. If you purely purchase reprinted cards, for example, with a 50% stockist discount your actual minimum order value would therefore be £150!
What You Can Order
You can order anything that you see on my website with the exception of work detailed in my ‘excluded products and variants’ below. Different products, however, will generate different discounts so please choose products carefully otherwise products may be charged at full price or a lower discount than expected.
What Products Get What Discounts
Different product will attract different discounts according to the table below. I appreciate that some stockists might be looking for a 50% discount across everything, however, I cannot offer that on all products, particularly hand printed products. Most of my handprinted products will, however, still sell slightly above my RRP in galleries and prestiguous outlets which may allow you to increase margin on these.
|Product Type||Stockist Discount||Qty Limit|
|Standard Greeting Cards||50%||Unlimited|
|Lapel Pin Badges||50%||Unlimited|
|Hand Printed Cards||40%||Unlimited|
|3D Bird Cards||40%||15 Birds|
|Unframed Prints||40%||1 of any design|
I am not currently offering framed work to stockists. If you require framed work you will be expected to purchase the prints and frame them locally yourself. Stockist should also refrain from ordering multipacks, or product variants that offer discounts for 2 or more items as your supplier discounts is calculated based on standard single item RRP. If you place an order for any of these your order may be cancelled and will need to be placed again without these excluded items.
