No! You must purchase a Starter Kit and become a Certified Disciple's Cross™ Producer and be input into our system BEFORE you are allowed to begin making our patented and copyrighted jewelry design or any variation thereof. Instructional DVD's and Videotapes are not allowed to be passed on to non-certified producers.
6. How soon are supplies shipped out?
Our office staff maintains a maximum of 3-5 business day turnaround for all supply orders.
7. Where do I purchase the materials to make the Disciple's Cross™ necklaces?
In order to protect the standards of our product you must purchase your supplies directly from Disciple's Cross™. Due to volume discounts from manufacturers we are able to get the materials for well below the normal retail prices that you would have to pay elsewhere and we can pass that savings on to you.
8. Where do I purchase the Clear Coat Acrylic?
In order to make your Disciple's Cross™ rust and tarnish resistant you must coat them with a clear coat acrylic finish. In the past we have offered clear coat acrylic on our website. However, due to increased shipping regulations and safety precautions the clear coat acrylic must now be purchased locally. The approved product can be found at craft or fabric stores, some local department stores and on line. It is called "Delta Ceramcoat Gloss Exterior/Interior Varnish". This is a dip as opposed to a spray and is very easy to work with. Mix Equal parts of varnish and water: stir, Do Not shake. When using this product the crosses will need to be dipped twice, allowing time to dry in between dips.
9. How difficult are these to make?
Not difficult at all once you get the hang of it. The DVD in your starter kit will show you each simple step. I can make them in under five minutes each.
10. How strong do I have to be to make these?
Well, I can tell you that I have taught many high school students to make them. You will need a reasonable amount of hand and finger strength but you certainly don't have to be excessively "strong."
11. How can I maximize my profits?
For those of you who want to maximize your profits, you can keep your crosses and sell them at flea markets, craft shows, church fundraisers, or even directly to Christian bookstores. You set the price you want to sell them for, and you keep 100% of the profits. Disciple’s Cross™ does not require a royalty from your outside sales.
12. Is there still a big enough market for these crosses?
The market is HUGE! There are six billion people in the world and I'd like to see them all wearing a Disciple's Cross™. Believe me, even your town is bigger than you think it is.
