So if you've talked with us already about becoming a rep, or would like to, please do it now! Sales rep kits can be purchased here. Just email us first to make sure we are accepting new sales reps in your area. The sales rep program is not ending, we will re-open in January for new sales rep sign up.
Thanks so much,

Long time, no talk. We've been very busy here at the Hero On My Arm Studios. We have a HUGE website update in the works- new styles, new pictures, new lining fabrics, new options, new promotions- it will all be up and running sometime in October.
Just a quick note here to say that if you don't already follow us on Twitter and Facebook, you should! They are both a bit more interactive than the blog, so if you are interested in what's up with Hero On My Arm day to day, that's the best place to find out:

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

What's in the sales rep kit?
The sales rep kit is $100 and requires one uniform top. If you do not have a top to send in, you may purchase one from us. The sales rep kit includes:
a PDF detailed Sales Rep Training Manual
a picture book with Fabric Swatch Samples, Font Samples and purse options
20 party invitations
5 Hero On My Arm pens
your own personal email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
your own personalized business card template with custom logo
your own personal clickable signature tag
your own personal url for the website (heroonmyarm.com/yourname)
your own personalized PDF order form
your contact information listed on the website
your own custom created Hero On My Arm bag, in your choice of our most popular styles
ID/credit card holder
As a sales rep, you also receive 20% of your own personal purchases.
What is the starter trunk? Do I have to buy that too?
The starter trunk is available for purchase here. It is $125 and you do not receive your sales rep discount on this purchase. It is a sampling of our 4 most popular bag styles and a large wallet. You are required to send in the uniforms to create your trunk (3 tops, 2 pants). If you already own one of the bags in the sample trunk, you may substitute another bag style for the one(s) you already own. You are NOT required to purchase the starter trunk, it is merely a helpful selling tool.
What if there is already a sales rep in my area?
Some areas can support more than one sales rep, while others can not. Contact us to learn about other options, like becoming a virtual sales rep.
Why did it take so long?
Some of you have been waiting for several months to hear about the sales rep program, we do understand. But we also wanted to make sure that we are able to set each sales rep up for success and that the program is running smoothly and efficiently, and that takes time. (Oh, and Seneca just had a baby- that took some time, too, lol)

We are getting a lot of orders in where the camo types do not match, and this takes time to double check and can delay your order. Example: Customer places a purse order indicating they will send in their own uniform, and also order several accessories in BDU (name tapes, wallet, checkbook). When the uniform arrives, its an ABU uniform, not a BDU. Please make sure you are using the correct common abbreviation.
You do not need to purchase the USABLE POCKETS option for your bag UNLESS the pockets on the uniform are SEWN SHUT and you'd like them reopened to be able to use them. If the pockets on the uniform you send in are usuable, they will automatically be usable on your bag as well.
Don't forget the lining color, and ribbon color when you order (these are the most commonly left off items). If you choose ribbon ties, you still need to select the size and color ribbon you'd like.
At this time, we simply can NOT accomodate any new RUSH requests. Please do not include them AFTER you order either (i.e. a note with your uniform that you need your bag completed in 3 weeks). We are very sorry, and if we could, we would, but its just impossible at this time!
And lastly, thank you, thank you, thank you, for your patience. We are all working non stop both to answer all your emails and phone calls and on the production side to complete orders as quickly as possible!
