Q: What is your refund policy if I cancel before the 4th of the month?Asked by Amy A., May 2020

The Paper Crate answered...July 2020

We are happy to offer refunds if your box has not yet shipped out. For pre-paid subscriptions, ie. 3-month, 6-month, etc., we offer partial refunds based on the remaining shipments left. Because there is an automatic discount for pre-paid subscriptions, the amount refunded may have a deduction included to reflect that discounted amount.

Q: Am I able to decide what kinds of cards I need for that month? Also, can I request more or less depending on the number of cards I need that month?Asked by David J., April 2020

The Paper Crate answered...July 2020

Unfortunately no. Because this is a DIY craft box and not a stationary box, each month has a unique curated set that is put together each month. There are currently no variations on what is shipped each month. However, you can always order a past box if you see a theme that you like, these are limited in supply. We are also looking at having variations available in the future.

Q: I see it says 4 different style cards, but how many cards can you make from each kit? Asked by Elizabeth B., January 2021

The Paper Crate answered...January 2021

Each kit includes items to make 4 cards, ie. Embellishments, card stock, ink, etc. However, some kits include items like stamp sets or dies which can be used again to make more cards.

This subscription is awesome! I have really enjoyed making these cards. Fun, creative and I have new stamps, inks and tools that I will use many more times.
My only issue(and it’s a small one) is that some of the smaller card stock pieces were not cut straight and true. It would not have been a big deal if I wasn’t laying on the vertical striped pink/yellow background. You could definitely tell that the piece was crooked. After trimmed it up I realized that the happy birthday stamp Would not fit on the piece so I just cut some of my own card stock. Not a big deal and I will definitely keep this subscription!

I love Paper Crate. I look forward to the box and the ideas that come with it. I chose this box due to wanting some interesting to do every month as well as ideas to enter into my journal/scrapbook notebook that I use daily. The cards are lovely to make to give out as well as place in my own journal as monthly accomplishments. I love the paper and embellishments. It is an awesome gift for crafty people like myself.

Bought everything in there was great and really like it. The timing was off. Receiving Christmas stamps on Dec 23, wasn’t helpful. Really hoping my Jan crate has Valentine stamps so I have time to make the cards.

Hi Joan, we did see your box was delivered the same day you posted this review. We are sorry you were unhappy with the delivery time this month. Unfortunately, our boxes went out about a week later than expected due to delays from a couple of our suppliers due to COVID-19. We are also aware the shipping service was a bit delayed from both COVID and the holidays this year.
The January boxes will be shipping on time. We hope you come back to review the box again now that your recipient has received the first box.

Amazing value

This box is a huge hit. Everything you need is in there, and so many extras. My daughters were so excited they actually took my box and surprised me by making their own cards! They have learned a new hobby and are excited. How wonderful a gift to have common ground with my teens and a great way to spend time together. And I can't wait for our friends and family members to start receiving actual handmade cards! I have been terrible at sending cards, but i think this is just the new hobby that is going g to turn that around as well ad enrich family time. Order a box and you will see how much thought and time they put into making yours a special experience! Thank you!
