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.

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'm very impressed by my first box from The Paper Crate. I was a little hesitant because it seemed like a lot of money, but I received enough products to create 6-8 more cards in addition to the instructions which means I can keep making the cards with my own stash.
Update: I've now received 3 boxes and haven't been disappointed yet! I'm learning new techniques and trying products I wouldn't have bought for myself (like watercolor pencils or using blending pens with ink pads).

I received my first box and was NOT disappointed! I love making cards for my pen pals and friends and this had everything I needed and more! I love the stamps, ink, and markers included that I can reuse with other cards and the extra ideas for card design. Just what I was looking for!

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!

I love getting this box every month! The last time I handmade cards was in elementary school. Needless to say this box really upped my game. I have learned new skills each month and love being able to send my creations to friends and family (and they like them too). Plus a lot of the supplies sent are more than enough to complete the projects and more! The instructions for the cards are easy to follow and I think regardless of skill level anyone would like this box.

I'm a beginner at card making, and this box is perfect. It introduces me to new tools and techniques and provides enough supplies to inspire me to try things on my own. I've tried a couple other card making subscription boxes and what sets this one apart is that it does not come with too many pre-cut parts. Instead, I get to measure and cut and paste myself. On the other hand, it doesn't come with dies that would require me to buy a fancy cutting machine. It's hits the sweet spot for a newbie like me: I get to learn techniques and I don't have to go buy additional tools in order to use items in the box. And the designs are beautiful and the directs are clear.

I really have nothing bad to say about my experience with The Paper Crate for the last 6+ months. I adore the things they send, I love the experience, it's worth every penny. The instructions walk you through creating 4 cards every month and highlight a new technique that you can then use to make at least a dozen more cards using the extra paper and tools you just learned how to use. So the stuff you get is easily worth the price, and you learn something new! In my opinion, priceless. I will continue subscribing to The Paper Crate.
