A Note on Image/Creation Ownership.
Each image/item that Paper Exploits creates, custom-made or otherwise, remains the property of Paper Exploits. Re-creations therefore remain as remote yet possible options, at the discretion of myself.
A Note On Purchasing Custom Orders.
Custom Orders that have been reserved for someone else, but have been bought by another, will also be surfaced to Etsy, cancelled, and re-listed. Let’s all try to be mindful of Etsy etiquette, and steer clear from reserved listings! If you see something you like that’s a custom order, just convo/e-mail me and we can work something out. :]
A Note on Handmade Paper Goodies.
Paper Exploits takes pride in the fact that each creation is conceived, crafted, and finished by hand. As such, each item bears the mark of home-made goodness, which may sometimes manifest itself in a ‘glitch’ of sorts. For example, an embellishment may be ever-so-slightly off-center, or a stamped image may be darker on one end. I request for customers to appreciate the differences between mass-produced cards by printing presses and machines, and hand-inked cards made from scratch. I may even propose that these ‘glitches’ endow the works of Paper Exploits with that much more character and distinction!
A Note on Prices.
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. :]
