I am learning so much with this new venture. One of my biggest findings came last week when I signed up to work a Holiday Boutique. On my 8 foot table, I had 2 faux sinks, framed photos of decorated sinks, and more than 10 sink stoppers decorated with various Holiday, Logo, Animal Skin, and Sports designed Stopper Toppers™.
Yet, as over 1,000 people walked by that day, very few “got it.” I saw many smiling and friendly faces but people had no clue what they were viewing. I quickly realized that just because I live, breathe, eat, sleep, drink and talk non-stop (as my husband would confirm) about Stopper Toppers; not everyone else does.
This is a blessing and a curse. Stopper Toppers are totally new and they aren’t on anyone’s radar. Most people couldn’t tell you what color, shape, or size their sink stoppers are. For me, that is fantastic! I love that we have created and launched a product that is totally unique and has such amazing potential.
The challenge I underestimated is that, as stated above, they are not on anyone’s radar so we need to do some serious educating about Stopper Toppers. Luckily, this is Bathroom Décor 101 because we think we can explain this great bathroom product in a few short minutes.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, I would say it’s worth 500 words. At the boutique, hanging behind me was a huge banner with photos of sinks decorated with Stopper Toppers. As soon as I directed people to the banner, the response I got was, “ohhh, how clever."
They saw the poster of decorated sinks and quickly understood what Stopper Toppers look like and where they go (on the sink stopper). But then began the real conversation (the remaining 500 words) in educating people on Stopper Toppers:
WHAT ARE STOPPER TOPPERS™
Stopper Toppers™ are a decorative laminate. Please don’t call them stickers! They are much more complex than a cheap sticker because they have different layers and a more robust creation process. They are applied, like a sticker, to your existing sink stopper. But, they have features and components that make them more durable and creative than a simple sticker.
HOW DO YOU GET THEM ON?
When people see them in a sink or on a sink stopper, they think they need to buy an entirely new sink stopper. Once applied, they actually look like part of your sink stopper.
But, Stopper Toppers are so much easier to apply. You simply peel them off the packaging, align and center them on your existing sink stopper, and use your thumbs to spread the Stopper Toppers across the sink stopper. We recommend aligning it from the center and then spreading it out to the sides so as to eliminate any creases. If you go to http://stoppertoppers.hostedbywebstore.com/info/How_To_Apply, you can watch our How to Apply video on the website.
HOW DO YOU REMOVE THEM?
They are easy on and easy off but not re-usable. Stopper Toppers are extremely durable. My happy customer and mother of three commented, “They are fantastic and have lasted through my kid’s abuse!” Once they are down, they will last a long time - months even a year or two. But when you want them off, you just get your fingernail under the Stopper Toppers. Once you get a piece of it lifted, you can simply pull it off in one piece. They don't leave any residue and come off whole but they stretch a little and lose their stickiness so they aren’t really reusable. Simply toss them when you are done. Then, apply a new one and step back and enjoy!
ARE THEY WATERPROOF?
Absolutely! Pardon the sarcasm here but, OF COURSE! That just wouldn’t make any sense to put something in your sink that wasn’t. We apply a high-quality laminate coating over the designs that will not only withstand water, but we’ve tested it in bleach, nail polish remover, cleaning agents and there was absolutely no impact on the finish or color. These laminates are durable and will maintain their amazing look for months, even years. Of course, we hope you will change them out often. Because, each time you do, you will experience a pleasant jolt of excitement and a smile comes across your face as you admire your new sink! How else can you brighten up and transform the look of your bathroom for only $7!
CAN I REUSE THEM?
Stopper Toppers are meant to be used for as long as you like and then replaced. They are not re-useable. As you remove them, they may stretch and lose their stickiness so once you pull them off the sink stopper, simply toss them. Then pull out your new Stopper Toppers and quickly cover up that naked sink stopper to create a brand new look for your bathroom!
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
Officially, the finish on the Stopper Toppers will last up to two years. They have a waterproof, laminate finish, so they will stay put and shine for a long time. But, we recommend changing them out often because it is such a thrill to see the end result when you apply a new one. What better way to transform and beautify your bathroom for under $10 then with Stopper Toppers!
