Aloha friends! I apologize in advance if this post is a bit wordy, but I am hopping on the blog today to give a more detailed update about what is going on behind the scenes at Clique Kits. Since shipping out our last monthly subscription boxes in June I have had some time off to take care of some self care and think about future plans. Taking a page from Marie Kondo's book I have decided to focus on the aspects of Clique Kits I know "spark joy" for me!
Curating Kits with Value and Values
Everyone knows what value is: it means getting a lot for your money. That can mean value in terms of quantity of stuff in the kit, but it can also mean value in the quality of the experience... from customer service, to the fun of unboxing, to the convenience of beautifully coordinated product literally delivered to your door. Clique Kits will continue to curate and release kits but not on any particular rotating cycle. Subscriptions will not be needed or offered as discounts are readily available through our website rewards programs! You won't have to accumulate monthly boxes at times when you don't have as much time to create with them. As a member of our Facebook group you will have frequent opportunities to provide input into the collections and products you love to influence future kits. The reason no commitment is necessary is because we will take pre-orders for upcoming kits. The only deadlines to pay attention to are therefore the end of the pre-order period, after which time only kits left over will be listed in the shop once the kits are "in stock". This is not guaranteed to be the case for every kit and you must pre-pay for your kit to be guaranteed to receive one after the shipping date!
About values...plural, I am talking about the principles and guidelines behind the choices we make. Values have always mattered at Clique Kits, and this continues to be the case. Because we are a worldwide community, we are open and accepting of artists and crafters spanning every race, country, religion, and orientation. The passion for our hobby is the thread that binds us all together and we embrace diversity!
Having values also means there are lines we won't cross, since they violate our integrity.
Clique Kits Loyalty Rewards
Clique Kits has always been all about loyalty! When we started as an ecommerce website we started out by keeping track of our customers manually and rewarded participants in our monthly blog shares with reward points we tallied by hand! We also gave reward coupons based on the length of time as a customer and we maintained a close circle of our lifetime VIP tier members "for life." About a year ago we migrated our webstore to a platform with the capacity for automating these programs. Whew! And next I'll show you our old dial up internet and rotary phone. Kidding! Adding to these great programs, Clique Kits has added a "stamp card" program which is called a "Passport" to go along with a new series of kits we are releasing one at a time: The International Series. It is super easy to participate in the Clique Kits Passport Challenge! Keep reading for the details!
CK International Series
There is only one thing I love as much as papercrafting and mixed media: it's travel! I absolutely love to learn about life in other countries! This really sparks joy for me, and I love having friends in this industry all over the world. As papercrafting spread throughout the world, it is so amazing to see the amount of scrapbooking going on in places like Australia, Canada, Europe, and even South America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East! For those who are interested, each time we release an international series kit, we will introduce you to a vendor from one country and curate a beautiful kit for you to order! For each international series kit purchase, you will receive one passport stamp! After every 3 stamps, we will automatically send you a coupon for 50% off your next kit.
