How It Works

Documenter, Traveler’s Notebook, and Stamp Subscriptions

Documenter, Traveler’s Notebook, and Stamp Subscriptions are monthly, limited edition subscriptions curated by Studio Calico with modern memory keepers in mind. The subscriptions deliver inspiration for turning today’s moments into tomorrow’s memories.

Subscription pricing is dependent on the commitment level: 


Each month's theme is available from the 1st through the end of the month, while supplies last. A brand new theme is revealed each month on the 1st, prompted by a reveal email from Studio Calico.

In addition to the inspiration and product, subscribers join a community of crafters using each month’s kit. Our Creative Team gallery features projects that use each month’s kits, and searching #mysckitishere on Instagram will reveal plenty of user-generated inspiration.


Add-Ons

In February 2019, we replaced “bundling” with a streamlined subscriber experience. With this update, subscribers are able to purchase selected Add-On items to your monthly subscription order, for no additional shipping cost (both domestic and international subscribers).

On the 1st of each month, all subscribers (Documenter, Traveler’s Notebook, and Stamp Subscription) receive an email directing them to the new subscriber-exclusive interface, where they can view and select Add-On items available for purchase. Add-Ons selected by 11:59 pm ET on the 5th will be added to your monthly subscription shipment for no additional shipping fees. 

From that interface, you'll be able to select and remove Add-On products to your box (while supplies last) from 12:00 pm ET on the 1st to 11:59 pm ET on the 5th. Any Add-On items remaining in your box at 12:00 am ET on the 6th will be charged and shipped with the monthly kit subscription. 

On the 6th of every month during your subscription, we'll collect payment of the base fee stated next to the level of commitment plus the cost of any selected Add-Ons (see the "Your Order" example below for a visual). Your order will be packed and shipped by the 10th of every month.

You may add or remove Add-On items freely during the selection period, but at 12:00 am ET on the 6th, any items remaining in your box will become your finalized selections and will be charged to your method of payment and included in your shipment. A pop-up box (shown below) will remind you of this, each month, upon placing your first Add-On item in your box.


FAQs

When do I need to subscribe in order to receive the next kit?

If you’re anxious to receive the next kit we reveal, be sure to subscribe before 11:59 am ET on the 1st of the month. Your order must be finalized before the reveal takes place at 12:00 pm ET on the 1st of the month.

How does the kit Add-On work?

At 12:00 pm ET on the 1st of every month, a new kit will be revealed. All subscribers will have the opportunity to view and select Add-On items available for purchase and add them to their monthly subscription order for no additional shipping fees. The selection period for Add-On items will be from 12:00 pm ET on the 1st through 11:59 pm ET on the 5th. 

On the 6th of every month during your subscription, we'll collect payment of the base fee stated next to the level of commitment plus the cost of any selected Add-Ons. Please review your selected items in your box before the choosing period ends at 11:59 pm ET on the 5th.

What happened to kit bundling?

As of February 2019, kit bundling has been replaced with our newer kit Add-On feature.

What happens if I miss out on the selection period for Add-Ons or if the Add-On items sell out?

Unfortunately, we will not be able to manually add "Add-On" items to your order if they are not selected between 12:00 pm ET on the 1st through 11:59 pm ET on the 5th. Pending available inventory, customers may still purchase featured Add-Ons after the choosing period has ended, however, these items will be treated as a new order and will incur a shipping charge.  The Add-On items are available while supplies last. 

What will be available in the Add-Ons?

You’ll have the option to purchase from several featured items to add to your order for that month. These featured items will be a mix of new, coordinating products and shop staples. There is no limit on the quantity of each item you may purchase, while supplies last.

When will my credit/debit card be billed?

You credit/debit card will be billed on the 6th day of each month.

I selected an Add-On item, but have since changed my mind. Can I cancel the selection?

You may add, edit, or remove Add-On selections between 12:00 pm ET on the 1st and 11:59 pm ET on the 5th. After that time, any Add-On items placed in your order will be added to your monthly charge and your shipment.

When will my kit be shipped?

We will pack and ship all subscription orders, including any selected Add-On items, by the 10th of every month.

Will I be charged shipping on orders including the subscriber Add-On items?

For all domestic orders, subscriptions will ship for free, including subscription orders with selected Add-Ons during the choosing period. A $3 processing fee will be charged for each subscription order shipping outside of the United States. If subscribers purchase Add-On items after the choosing period has ended, those will be treated as a new order and will incur shipping fees.

How does the subscription wait list work?

If you have been placed on our wait list, all of our subscription spots are filled at that time. As soon as a spot becomes available, your subscription will begin with that newly-available kit.

Please note: This means you may not receive this month’s kit—your subscription may start with a future theme/kit.

Your account will be charged on the 6th of your first active month or when your subscription is activated from the wait list.

During your first month, you will not be eligible to select Add-On items, given that your activation date will most likely fall outside of the Add-On selection window. However, you will be eligible in subsequent months as your subscription continues.

What if I want to skip a month in my subscription?

Life gets busy, and we get it! If you’d like to skip the next month’s subscription, you must do so by 11:59 pm ET on the day before reveal. To put it another way, you must choose to skip the next month’s kit on or before the last day of the current month.
