Q: Why don't you have kids party collections based on popular characters or television shows?
A: Based on our years of teaching and education in child development, we develop our kids party boxes to enhance childrens' imaginations and encourage creative play. Commercially-based party goods dictate a prescribed atmosphere and type of play, and their manufacturers and distributors pay a large licensing fee which can be a significant portion of your cost. In addition, these manufacturers rely on their products' disposable nature and spend less money on the quality of materials they use and the suppliers they work with. We strive to provide you and your children with the highest quality materials, design, workmanship, and experience possible.
Q: How often do you add new party themes?
A: We are developing new parties all the time. For sneak peeks of upcoming collections, join our mailing list, follow us on Twitter, or become a fan on Facebook and you'll be in the know!
Q: What if I'm hosting a large party? Should I just keep adding additional guest packs?
A: For parties with 24 or more guests, we can offer volume pricing options to help make your event even more affordable. We are happy to consult with you on space planning and additional decorating needs as well as custom options.
Q: What do I do if I don't see a theme or color palette that's perfect for my party?
A: We'd love to help you with a custom party. Contact us directly for our custom party and event services.
Q: Are your products available in stores?
A: Yes, our products are available at select retailers near you!
Q: What if a product I need is on backorder?
A: Because of the handmade nature and availability of our decorations and linens, from time to time some of our party collections may not be available for immediate shipment. Contact us and we will let you know exact ship dates.
Q: Is it really that bad to have a disposable party instead of an eco-responsible Acme Party Box party?
A: It all adds up. Were you to purchase goods for your celebration from most party retailers you'd receive:
- Plastic Table Cover
- Paper Napkins
- Paper Plates
- Plastic Cups
- Plastic Cutlery
- Mylar or Synthetic Latex Balloons
- Paper Streamers
- Tissue Paper Centerpiece
- Plastic Party Banner
- Plastic goodie bags filled with plastic goodies
Sadly, the likelihood is that all of this merchandise was manufactured utilizing no post consumer waste and in factories where workers suffer from low pay and difficult working conditions. Even more sadly, those items were probably manufactured overseas from virgin materials, shipped across the ocean, and delivered to your door. Not one of these items is intended to be used again. They are enjoyed for a few hours and discarded.
All of the items manufactured and sourced by ACME Party Box Company are either made to enjoy for years to come, utilize recycled resources, or are thoroughly biodegradable. We work with companies who foster a growing green conscience, or who are already well established as green manufacturers. We accept nothing less and hope you won't either.
Q: Can I get advice on party set-up and activities once my party supplies arrive?
A: Are party goods are designed for quick and easy set-up to help you create a festive party atmosphere. Check out our party planning worksheet and schedule to help you organize for the big day. If you need additional help, you can send us a note for theme-based activities, recommendations for the best local bakeries and caterers in your city, and whatever else you need to make your party perfect!
