AwesomeBox is an entirely new way to give a truly memorable surprise gift. With great ease, a group of friends and family can produce a unique boxset of custom printed cards. Each 5.25x 5.25” card features a photo on the front and personal message on the back. Great for holidays, birthdays, milestone events or just because. Cards can be displayed, shared, and saved as special keepsakes.
If you want to upload a photo from your Facebook account, we need permissions to access them.
We don't post anything you contribute from our app to Facebook. We only request information that enables our app to be more useful for participants.
Yes. On your mobile device you can create a two-sided card and view cards created by others (including tapping them to see the other side).
Not yet. We plan to add support for this soon. Please feel free to contact us and we will do all we can to offer a workaround solution.
AwesomeBox can be used to celebrate many occasions including holidays, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, memorials, graduations, teacher appreciations, work transitions, retirements, congratulations, thank yous, host/hostess gifts or "just because”.
Yes. You can change your box size or delivery date anytime prior to the deadline by clicking the settings gear in the AwesomeBox header and selecting the “Settings" button. Changing the delivery date will automatically change the deadline for creating cards to account for production and shipping time.
Yes. Friends may be hesitant to add the first card. Making three or more cards before inviting friends helps set the tone for the type of messages and photos you’d like others to contribute. (e.g. inside joke, heartfelt memory, fun story.... Whatever you do will likely be followed by others.)
Once all cards have been created, printing and shipping requires 5-6 business days. When you tell us the delivery date for your AwesomeBox, we automatically calculate the deadline for submitting cards by subtracting out days for printing and shipping.
Our users like to have 10-14 days to allow invited participants to create their cards for the AwesomeBox. Example: If you want your AwesomeBox to be delivered on June 20th, our site will calculate the deadline as June 13th (5 business days before). So, starting your AwesomeBox June 1st will give you and your friends 13 days to complete your cards before the deadline.
Absolutely! Absolutely! To access your AwesomeBox(es), just login and click the menu icon in the upper right of the page.
Let us know how we can help. For questions and feedback contact us.
Yes. Only the host and invited participants have access to the private online group. After the deadline (which is determined by the host), AwesomeBox recipients will receive a link to access the group after they get their AwesomeBox in person.
Yes, you can make a box individually! AwesomeBox is still one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give and receive, even if only created by one person. We have seen individuals create 100 card AwesomeBoxes in one day!
Hosts can edit photos and messages on any card, as well as delete any card in the AwesomeBox. Hosts can also edit the signature on cards that they created.
Participants can edit photos, messages, and signatures on cards that they created. They can also delete any card that they created. Participants cannot edit or delete cards created by others.
To make changes, you must be logged in to your AwesomeBox account. Click the white pencil icon on the top-right corner of the card (If you dont see the pencil, you don't have permission to edit the card). Then select the item you would like to change from the menu options. Edits can be made anytime before the box deadline date.
Currently, participants cannot select designs for the message side of AwesomeBox cards. The site chooses card designs based on the amount of text on the card. Some designs accommodate more words, while others are better for just a few words.
Each time a card’s message is edited, a new design and color may be chosen.
When Creating a Card:
After selecting the photo you want to include on your card, an Image Preview window will appear. In that window, drag the corners of the green box or click and drag inside the box to adjust the crop. Click the “Next” button when you are done.
When Editing a Card:
(Participants can only edit cards that they created) Click the white pencil icon on the top-right corner of your card. Select "Edit Photo”. Then select “Adjust Photo”. An Image Preview window will appear. In that window, drag the corners of the green box or click and drag inside the box to adjust the crop. Click the “Next” button when you are done.
Both approaches work great!
We've found that casting the widest net possible has led to the most active boxes, and sometimes unexpected contributions. Ask participants to help you invite more people, and send out reminders to friends you've already invited.
If you keep it small and intimate, remember to ask each friend to contribute five or more cards. When you're counting on fewer people, they need to be reminded to add cards more often.
Currently, only hosts can change the invitation text by going to the SETTINGS button on the group project page, changing the invitation message, and clicking UPDATE SETTINGS.
Hosts and participants can preview invitation text by going to the INVITE FRIENDS button on the group project page and selecting “Preview Invite."
If you have sent your invitations via the AwesomeBox site, we'll send reminders to your invitees via email. Reminders are sent two days after the first invitation is sent, and again two days prior to the deadline for participating.
An AwesomeBox host can send a reminder at any time. Click on the settings icon in the section at the top of the AwesomeBox page. Click the Send Message button, and you can enter a customer message to be sent to anyone who hasn't participated yet.
Currently, there is not a way for hosts to message the group from within our site.
Workaround: Start an email thread or Facebook group with everyone you invited on our site. This will help you send follow up messages, encourage involvement, and inspire friends to see each others cards.
Shipping and payment information must be added before the deadline to ensure on time printing and delivery. They can be entered by clicking on the settings icon near the top of the AwesomeBox page and selecting the Shipping info or Payment info button.
Yes. You can change your box size or deadline anytime prior to the deadline by using the "settings" button on the group page.
If you want to finish and print your AwesomeBox early, you can do so by changing its delivery date. Click on the settings icon near the top of the AwesomeBox page. Click the Box settings button. In the Box settings window, change the delivery date to the soonest available date and save the settings.
At this time, all boxes are shipped for a flat-rate $12 fee for all box sets.
Cards are printed in the order they are created: a 25 card box will contain the first 25 cards created. If the number of cards created exceeds the box limit, the host will receive an email letting them know that not all cards will be printed. In that case, for 10, 25, 50, or 75 card boxes, the host can choose to upgrade to the next size up to make sure all cards are printed. Cards that are not printed will always remain in the digital version of the AwesomeBox and be visible on the AwesomeBox page.
Cards are printed in the order in which they are added to the AwesomeBox. The first card added will appear at the top, and the last card added will be at the bottom.
We currently only ship to the Continental US, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
Yes, we can ship to an APO (for people in the armed service), but it will not be listed as an option in the shipping & payment process. Please contact us for details.
Boxsets can be returned within 30 days for any reason except the following:
Please review our return policy for details. If your return is in compliance with our policy, we will gladly replace the AwesomeBox at no cost to you. Returns are sent to: Muse Factory, 1242 Market St. 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94102.
If you would like to delete your box in order to start a new one, please contact us and we will delete it for you. Remember, boxes remain open for participants to enjoy after the deadline.
Each card is a 5.25x5.25” square with rounded corners. They fit snuggly in an elegant white box that’s 6x6x1.75". Finished cards are a wonderful alternative to the standard coffee table book, and also look great framed or displayed upright on the bookshelf.
All of them within the box size limit! If the number of cards created exceeds the number of cards ordered, (i.e, 10, 25, 50, 75, 100 card box sets) only the top-most cards of your order amount will be printed. You can either upgrade your box set, or in the case of having over 100 cards, create a second box.
*Contact us for an additional set of blank cards.
It’s also great to document the experience - receiving an AwesomeBox is a very special and often surreal experience, something the recipient may want to relive in photos and videos (and we encourage you to share your experiences with us and perhaps we can use your material in our marketing campaigns!)
