Becoming a Customer
Opening an Account with Diamond is easy!

First, you will need to fill out a copy of our Account Application.

You may also obtain an Account Application by mail or fax by contacting a New Accounts Specialist in our Home Office Retailer Services Department at (443) 318-8308.

Before you prepare for the next step, Documentation, you should also be familiar with Diamond's Terms of Sale and Premiere Vendor Terms of Sale.

Documentation You Will Need

In addition to your completed Account Application, you will need to submit the required documentation to verify that you are a qualified retailer.

Specifically, we will need clear photocopies of:

  • A Photo ID (such as a Driver's License) of all business owners;
  • A business license, sales tax license, or other permit required by law to conduct business in your location. (Some jurisdictions may not require this documentation.)
  • A uniform resale certificate, found here: Uniform Resale Certificate.  If you live in one of the following states, you will need to complete a state-specific Resale Certificate, found below:

We will also need:

  • Your complete mailing address. (For UPS purposes, please indicate if your mailing address is residential or commercial. If anyone lives at the address, it is considered residential.)
  • Your phone, cell phone, and fax numbers.
  • Your website address, if applicable. (Please Note: Companies doing business exclusively on the internet must have a registered domain name capable of accepting orders via credit card in order to open an account with Diamond.)


Once you have assembled these materials and completed your Account Application, you are ready to submit it to Diamond. After sending this information, please allow up to two weeks for delivery of the PREVIEWS Catalog and related materials.
