Provide a brief company history including how long in business and how many consultants in how many countries.
Intrigued by the beautiful and inspirational possibilities of decorative expressions, Inger Erickson, a professional graphic designer and owner of a successful design company, started Uppercase Living from her home with her friend Stephanie Geisler, a professional writer and trainer. The synergy between Inger’s flair for design and Stephanie’s love of language set Uppercase Living in motion. Customers quickly began coming from many different communities, hoping to purchase inspiring expressions to adorn the walls of their own homes. As demand continued to grow, Inger and Stephanie dreamed that they could one day enhance the lives of thousands of families, but realized that they could not continue operating this emerging home-based business on their own.
A highly skilled management team was soon formed and many talented individuals became involved, each bringing significant skills and assets to the organization. Additional financial investment, production facilities, and software technology were all critical components to the growth of this exciting new company.
Since its inception in early 2006, Uppercase Living has quickly become the leading provider of decorative expressions for homes and is now one of the fastest growing party-plan companies in the industry. What started as a dream for two friends has now become a reality. With Independent Demonstrators located across the United States, Uppercase Living is bringing beauty and power of the written word into homes everywhere, making them more wonderful places to live.

Discuss the company support for consultants?
Uppercase Living Demonstrators are given direct access to our home office through our Demonstrator Back Office websites and also via a toll-free telephone number. This is valuable for finding the answers to those every-day questions. For training, the company has implemented regional weekend training sessions that occur throughout the US and we also enjoy a yearly convention held in outstanding locations within the US.
What are some of the additional benefits/rewards consultants can earn?
Throughout the year, Demonstrators are able to earn various Product and Supply Rewards; what we call Living Rewards. The company also has an annual Living Rewards Cruise which Demonstrators can qualify for.
How often are consultants paid?
For instant commissions, our payment comes straight off the top of orders submitted. Demonstrators collect monies from customers/hostesses and then pay the company directly less the 25%, which is kept by the Demonstrator. For volume bonuses, leadership bonuses, and downline commissions, reports are run on or before the 10th of the following month and funds are direct deposited to our accounts.
