to find a retailer.
If you’d like to carry FAT Paint in your shop, first: Thank You! That’s so nice of you.
We’re pretty picky about our FAT family. Here’s what we’re looking for:
1. You don’t just sell chalk-style paint, you know it.
You’ve used it. You can answer questions about it. If there was a category on Jeopardy called “Chalk-Style Paint”, you’d get them all right and win the Daily Double. Essentially, we want you to be able to confidently answer any questions your customers might have about FAT Paint and all the painting, sanding, waxing, and glazing techniques that go with it.
2. You have brick and mortar.
You have a physical space. Customers can chat face-to-face about their FAT Paint needs during set retail hours. Your staff is also well-trained in the FAT way so that no matter who comes through the door and what questions they ask, your team is equipped and up to snuff with all things FAT and fabulous.
3. You offer workshops.
Your customers can learn to use FAT Paint firsthand in artisan-led workshops at your space or in a location nearby. This isn’t a requirement, but it is a nice-to-have.And it helps generate enthusiasm for the DIY movement, for your shop, and for FAT Paint too.
4. You can invest upfront.
By invest, we mean the cost of your first shipment, which is usually about $1600 + shipping. This will include start-up stock, FAT Paint in three sizes, a set quantity of natural and patina FAT Wax, brochureware, palettes, and more. We’ll tell you more about the initial investment when you tell us more about you below!
5. If you’re a US retailer, you’ll need a TAX ID.
We don’t make the rules; but we do abide by them.
If you feel good about the 5 musts to the left, let’s get started!
