The Carolina Welcome Box: Where metropolitan taste meets Southern hospitality.

If your business or event is based in The Old North State, there's a unique MEMENTO & MUSE gift collection designed especially for you. The Carolina Welcome collection features some of the best artisanal goods North Carolina has to offer, and can be customized to reflect your corporate or event branding.

 

Minimum Order:

  • Custom orders start with the following minimum investments per design/gift type (i.e. if you're commissioning separate gift designs for different purposes, the minimum quantity applies to each design):
    • 6-9 gifts starting at $75/each
    • 10-19 gifts starting at $35/each
    • 20+ gifts starting at $25/each
  • The per-gift minimum investment covers gift items, artisanal gift packaging, custom design/product sourcing, and handcrafted assembly. Sales tax and/or shipping/delivery charges (if applicable) are additional.
  • Certain custom imprinting requests or other specialty features may require greater minimums, and/or a setup fee.

Tiered Designs:

  • If you'd like your gift design to be split into 2 ore more "tiers" (i.e. gifting levels with different budgets), all tiers may count towards the same minimum order if they're all based on the same general design (i.e. there are overlapping gift products across tiers). A "Tiered Design Surcharge" will be applied to your order as follows:
    • $40 total surcharge for 2 tiers
    • $15 per additional tier
  • If you prefer completely separate gift designs for each of your tiers with no product overlapping, please note minimum quantity (see above) will apply for each separate design.

Branded Gift Packaging:

  • Your corporate or event branding can be reflected in your artisanal gift packaging in a wide variety of ways, from color palettes to imprinted logos to custom gift tags. As part of your gift design process, we'll work with you to craft a custom look that best meets your marketing goals and budget.
  • White Label Packaging: For most custom designs, a discreet card that says "Hand Selected For You By MEMENTO & MUSE" will be enclosed within each gift. However, if you prefer "white label" packaging with no reference to Memento & Muse, you may request this for an additional fee.

Shipping/Delivery Options:

  • Direct-to-Recipient: You may choose to have your gifts shipped to your company, or directly to your clients/recipients. Shipping rates are dependent on gift design and destination.
  • Local Clients: Pickup or delivery may be requested for the Triangle region of North Carolina; please inquire for details.
  • Deferred Delivery Add-On: For smaller-volume orders, gifts may be stored in the Memento & Muse studio and shipped out as-needed for a small fee. (Due to the additional labor and storage costs associated with shipping gifts individually over time, this service is separate from regular shipping charges.)
  • Domestic vs. International: We ship gifts throughout the USA. Please note we do not currently offer international shipping.

Turnaround:

General order processing times are below; HOWEVER, please visit www.mementoandmuse.com/turnaround for the most current turnaround information.

  • Non-Holiday Orders: Turnaround time will vary depending on the gift design and quantity needed. In general, please allow 5-6 weeks for design, production and delivery.
  • End-of-Year Holiday Orders: Due to high demand for our services during the holiday gifting season, we strongly advise that you place your order by October each year (and *early* October for orders of 50+ gifts!).
  • Reorders: For reorders of the same gift design as your initial order, turnaround times are generally closer to 3-4 weeks.

Inserts & Extra Items:

For most gift designs, your promotional material/company greeting card/etc. can be included within your gift at no extra charge. You may also inquire about including your own already-purchased gift item within your custom gifts.

  • Please note you will be responsible for providing Memento & Muse with your inserts/gift items by the date we determine necessary to meet your desired timeline.
  • Item dimension limits may apply.
