    Are we going to have Zoom classes every month?
    No. Zoom Classes will be done every other month but all tutorial video recordings will be uploaded on the site monthly.

    Do you accept international orders?
    Yes! We do accept international orders, but due to COVID-19 and all the shipping restrictions, you might not be able to receive the box on time. The work around for this is sending one box with all the blanks. This way we can keep shipping boxes down, and you can receive directions in .pdf form. 

    Can I use the FREE SHIPPING code on my subscription?
    No. The Free Shipping code is prohibited on this products seeing that we will be shipping your subscription boxes every month.
