Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between cardstock and text weight?
Text weight is flexible and easily bends when you hold it where cardstock "POPS" when you snap the corner and is rigid. Copy paper is a text weight paper.

What can I use text weight paper for?
When I make a greeting card, if I use a metallic cardstock for the base then I use the matching metallic text weight for the envelope! Talk about a stunning presentation, WOW! I also own a digital cutter (I own a Silver Bullet Professional Cutter which will cut thru anything)so the text weight paper is much easier to cut for many digital cutters available on the market. Great paper to use for the inside of the card if you are making a card with two pages. Perfect for embellishments, die cuts and such, doesn't add weight to your design. Make beautiful butterflies, hearts, flowers, and embosses like a dream. Honestly you can use it for anything except as a cardbase, it just isn't strong enough!
Do you accept any other forms of payment besides Paypal?
Yes I accept checks and money orders. If this is the method you would like to use for payment add your items into the shopping cart and complete the check out process just select in store account and then email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the address to mail either the money order or check. Once I receive either the check or the money order I will process the order.
What if I am not happy with my paper?
PaperTemptress strongly recommends getting a sample first before ordering a large quantity of any cardstock since there is a 20% restocking fee for any returned cardstock.
I have gotten paper from other companies with wrinkles and folds in the paper, will that happen when I get paper from you?
I treat the paper like a newborn baby!! Every package that leaves PaperTemptress is quaranteed to be delivered with the paper in EXCELLANT condition. When possible I place a very thick piece of chipboard in the package and when it isn't possible I use a very stiff mailing package. I personally prepare every package and if there is a piece of paper that isn't perfect it is then used for samples. I do my very best to package so that there isn't any damage but the Post Office unfortunately does on a rare occasion damage a package. There is an insurance charge on larger orders so you if you receive a damaged packages please take a picture of the paper and the envelope or box it was received in so a claim can be filed. For damage on smaller orders email the the PaperTemptress
When will my order be shipped?
Orders are generally shipped within 48 hours but most generally within 24 hours.
