When are the monthly kits updated on the website?

When are the monthly kits shipped?
The new kits and stamps are shipped beginning on the 15th of each month.

How much are the monthly kits?
The Solo kit and the Medley kit are $24.00 each per month plus shipping.   

What are the shipping charges?
In the US, there is a flat shipping charge of $8.00, domestic orders ship Priority mail. If you are ordering 1 stamp set ONLY - you may choose the 'envelope' shipping option for only $2.00 for First Class shipping in a padded envelope to domestic locations.

Do you ship internationally?
Of course!  We do, however, charge actual shipping charges.  International orders are shipped using US Postal Service First Class Mail International.  The additional charges will not show up in the shopping cart, they will be manually added to credit cards.   The typical charge to ship a kit to the UK is $21.00 and $14.00 to Canada.   

Please be aware that First Class Mail International does not provide tracking numbers.  Back Porch Memories cannot be responsible for the package once it is shipped.  If you would like to include a tracking number and insurance you may choose to upgrade your shipping to USPS Global Priority Mail by noting that in the comment section.  The typical cost to ship a kit using Priority Mail to the UK is $43.10 and $28.76 to Canada.

What methods of payment do you accept?
Back Porch Memories currently accepts Visa and MasterCard.  If you would rather pay by money order please contact paula@backporchmemories.com If you would like to use Paypal, you may prepay your kits - please contact me.

When will my credit card be charged for Autoship subscriptions?
Your card will be charged between the 8th and the 10th of each month, beginning the month of your first kit.

Is there a membership commitment?
No, Back Porch Memories is an auto-ship club.  This simply means that you will continue to receive a kit each month until you cancel your membership.  You must cancel your membership by the 3rd of the month or you will receive and be billed for that month's kit.  Example:  You must cancel your membership no later than December 3rd in order to avoid receiving the December kit. 

If I am on auto-ship, can I switch back & forth between the Solo and the Medley?
Yes, however you must choose which kit will be automatically shipped each month.  If, you would like to switch for a month simply email me.  If the kit you would like to switch to is sold out, you will be placed on the waiting list.  In the event one does not become available, you will still receive your reserved autoship kit unless you have instructed me otherwise by the regularly allowable skip date.  The earlier you request this change the higher your priority. 

Can I skip a monthly kit?
You may skip any kit you do not wish to receive.  To skip a kit, simply send an email to paula@backporchmemories.com by the 3rd of the month.  If you notify me after the 3rd you will receive and be billed for that months' kit.  I respond to EVERY email I receive.  If you email me to skip a kit and do not receive a reply from me that means I did not get your email and it is YOUR responsibility to email again. 

The month following any skip you will not be guaranteed a kit/stamps. I anticipate still having a kit for you, but due to ordering several months in advance and trying to plan for member skips that may not always be the case. If a shortage occurs, you will be
placed on a priority wait list ahead of nonmembers.

If you skip 3 kits in a row (unless prior arrangements have been made with me) you will be dropped from autoship status.  Because you are able to preview the kit and decline your shipment, we do not accept returns except in the case of our error.

What if my shipment is damaged? 
Please contact me within 5 days after your damaged package arrives for instructions.

Do you have a newsletter?
The newsletter and the design gallery are both located on the website.  This is an attempt to give you the most scrapbooking product for the price of the monthly kit.
