Have a question? Here's a list of commonly-asked questions about our business.
🏭 Where and how are Notebeans Stationary stickers made?
As of 2020, our stickers have been under the production of third party manufacturers in the U.S. and in Germany. Our reason for outsourcing was simply to ensure our stickers had the qualities that we desired.
In the future, Notebeans Stationary will self-manufacture stickers and other potential products.
💰 Where does my money go when I buy a sticker?
Great question! Here's a breakdown of your purchase of a vinyl sticker or vinyl sticker sheet from us:
- Operational Costs: a majority of your purchase (percentage will vary from sticker type) will be to cover the expenses that are necessary to ensure your sticker's packaging and experience are the best that can be.
- Global Giving: as for profits, 70% of your sticker's profits will be donated towards Global Giving, a nonprofit organization that uses donation funds to help charity projects around the world. Please see the Donation Proceeds page for more information.
- Notebeans Stationary: as for the remaining 30% of those profits, this money will go directly back into Notebeans Stationary as a running business. These funds will cover costs like equipment maintenance, postal material, and more.
📦 How will I know if my item has shipped? Is there a shipping or tracking number?
As of 2020, Notebeans Stationary does not use shipping labels or tracking numbers.
All Vinyl Stickers and Vinyl Sticker Sheets are sent out as Snail Mail, or with handwritten addresses and postage stamps.
By the end of 2020, Notebeans Stationary is projected to begin using shipping labels for a more premium, heavier object coming soon (stay updated on our Instagram!! 😊💖)
♻ What should I do with my Notebeans Stationary packaging?
First and foremost, thank you for considering the environment before tossing!
Notebeans Stationary business cards, donation cards, tissue paper, and kraft envelope (trim the adhesive) are made of entirely 100% recycled material.
Of course, we urge you to keep the business and donation card as your badge of honor for donating towards a greater cause and supporting businesses like us, but feel free to throw these four items into the recycling bin of your residency.
As for our sticker backings and shiba , these are plastic and should be tossed in a garb
