Q:Is the "katndrewcards" shop yours as well?
A:It is. www.etsy.com/shop/katndrewcards is our main shop with a broad selection of cards and jewelry material with less supplies available. It is the name we operate under in the day to day but wanted to bring you even more in a more organized way with Beyond Charms. Be sure to check out Katndrewcards also to find exactly what you`re looking for.
Q:What is the deal with your cards? Are there little beaded presents attached to them? These aren't regular cards!
A:We pride ourselves in not giving regular cards. If we can help it, we'll even change how you say 'Happy Birthday' (to soemthing like 'Make A Wish'. Kat n' Drew Cards is about change and giving more than a gift. All of our items come with some attached jewelry to create a gift all in one. You can give it as a small gift in itself or attach it as a compliment to larger gift items. It is about the freedom of gift giving, to find something you know your person will love.
Q: Do you offer wholesale pricing or quantity discounts?
A: We do have wholesale pricing available for many of our items and many of them can be made in quantity. Just ask us about viewing this pricing.
Quantity discounts, however, come few and far between. Working as hard as we do, we never want to lessen ourselves or the value we place on our work. Special orders may come with extra free gifts! Also, certain discounts may be offered to past buyers, especially if they've appreciated our stuff!
