Clique Kits Mission Statement
OUR MISSION is to inspire and nurture a passion for memory keeping, one layout, one kit, and one friendship at a time. We work every day to honor the accomplishments of those who design the products we use (“designers in the spotlight”) and to provide the human elements of belonging, connection, and acceptance to our peers. Here are the principles we strive to live every day!
OUR KITS We design our kits with the highest quality premium products focusing on one carefully selected coordinating designer collection each month making it faster and easier to achieve fabulous results, from the box to layouts. Our kits may change with the trends and the latest products, but will always follow a formula ensuring that they will usable no matter what skill level, format, or style of scrapbooking or paper crafting they are used for. Our all-in-one-monthly-box philosophy allows for you to decide how to use products and maximizes creativity without limits. Everything we do as a company stems from the desire that we have to meet our own expectations of excellence. The kits we sell to the Clique are the same kits we use for our own scrapbooking, and we would not have it any other way.
OUR TEAM The founders of Clique Kits are all wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends putting our relationships and the health and well being of ourselves and our loved ones above all else. As a team, we lead from the front, never asking of anyone anything we are not already doing or willing to do. Each individual is valued and respected for her contribution, and we collaborate using a horizontal, strengths based organizational model. No one can do everything, but together there isn’t anything we cannot do.
OUR CLIQUE Clique Kits would not exist without the Clique. The Clique consists of our subscribers, fans, and followers and is a dynamic online and live community. There is nothing phony here…we are a genuine circle of friends. We do not believe in obligating our members contractually, but in earning their loyalty each and every day! Our embellishments may be exclusive, but our philosophy is inclusive. At Clique Kits, paper crafters are the IN crowd and our customer service will reflect the golden rule of treating others as we would want to be treated.
CLIQUE KITS ONLINE Our website, blog, forum and store are our face to the world and we strive to maintain them in a manner that suits our aesthetic, brand, and company. Our website and its affiliated social media accounts are places to inspire and be inspired, to support and encourage each other, and where our friends freely choose to linger and leave feeling energized in their creative journey. We value diversity and tolerance. There are only three rules. The first rule is to be kind. The second rule is to be kind. The third rule is to be kind.
OUR VENDORS Designers, manufacturers, and distributors of paper crafting products rely on each other to maintain a vital economy where everyone prospers. In this regard, Clique Kits strives to be easy to work with and to have mutually rewarding win:win transactions with our vendors. We respect the intellectual property of others, and support small businesses, especially those born in the USA, artists, makers, and creatives everywhere in the world who practice eco-friendly and cruelty-free fair trade.
About Clique Kits
Currently, Clique Kits spans from Europe to Australia and across the U.S.A. and has grown into this business from "our basements". The name Clique Kits is a play on the word "Click" for the sound our cameras make recording memories, and is also a tongue in cheek metaphor for our ever-widening circle of friends who are anything BUT clique-y. This outlet lets us share our passion for memory keeping through our kits, blog, and social media community and is always friendly and supportive. Together with our design team, we strive to inspire our members and friends with tutorials, creative inspiration, articles, videos, inspirational blog shares, and much more! In our first year we quadrupled our membership and sold hundreds of limited edition kits in addition to our often unique school store products sourced from the indie, handmade, and fair trade markets. We now have over 15k Instagram followers and 7000 Facebook fans and our interactive community online continues growing. Read more about our mission and philosophy here.
