  • I will post The Buckle Boutique button on my blog.
  • I agree to NOT post completed project photos using products from The Buckle Boutique on social media until the projects are complete and have been posted on my blog with links to The Buckle Boutique. This will help to drive traffic to blog and promote the product.  “Teaser” photos are allowed to be posted that give a preview to your full projects on other blogs or social media networks, but links should then go to the full project posts.

    • Promoting Design Team events, such as blog hops, on social media outlets
  • I agree that ALL free products I receive from The Buckle Boutique will be used for Design Team Project posts, and not for personal gain. If I will be selling items I create that include products from The Buckle Boutique, creating one display or sample item is acceptable, as long as it is used for a Design Team post, but all “inventory” that I will be selling would need to include product that I purchased.
    • If I will be selling items I create with The Buckle Boutique’s products, I am eligible for wholesale pricing when purchasing products.
  • I agree that when I receive products from companies that The Buckle Boutique is partnering with due to my Design Team status, I will use at least 50% of these products for projects to further promote The Buckle Boutique products, and not for personal use.
