Who are you?
I’m Kelly, and I make handmade personalized stationery and wedding/party decorations. Read more at the About Kelly Tay page!
Where may I purchase your handmade stationery?
You may also request for a Custom Order by Convo-ing me on Etsy, or e-mailing me at Kelly [at] PaperExploits [dot] com.
How does a Custom Order work?
Custom-made pieces of personalized stationery are certainly do-able! Read my Shop Policies for more.
Why are your prices higher than what I can find in stores?
At the risk of sounding snooty, I must clarify that high-quality handmade products such as these are terribly difficult to find in stores (if at all!). Everything in Paper Exploits is hand-made (i.e. designed/conceptualized, cut, drawn/stamped, scored, glued, and finished) by myself– even material-sourcing’s done solely by me. This makes it more time-consuming, but infinitely more rewarding. Being more interested in the craft of making bespoke paper goods than making a quick dollar, I never chintz out on raw materials and always patiently source for the best paper, ribbon, and embellishments– often importing them from the United States. I usually take the time to say this to all my customers– custom-orders or otherwise– so that they understand what Paper Exploits is (not a generic card store like Precious Thoughts or Hallmark), and what goods/services they’re paying for. :]
Do you ship internationally?
Great, but what’s the astronomical charge on that?
Extremely fair and I daresay low. Simply put, it depends on what and how much you order, what it weighs, and the type of packaging necessary to keep it safe through the post.
How are you contactable?
E-mail me at Kelly [at] PaperExploits [dot] com, or send me a convo on Etsy.
