Yes, you will! These designs look complex and stunning, but no worries, as your templates come with our step-by-step instructions to guide you along in your creative journey. Simply purchase and download one of our templates to get started!
Firstly, please check your junk/spam emails in case our confirmation email did not reach your main inbox. If you've paid via Paypal, the order confirmation email will be sent to the email linked to your Paypal account.
If you still did not receive any email, please contact us at email@example.com and we will assist you as soon as possible (usually within 12~24 hours).
This issue is known to happen when the download link sent via email is bounced - often due to a typographical error or misspelling of email on the customers' end. Occasionally, it is due to an email service that is no longer working (e.g. expired school emails..). When this happens, the gopapercraft support team will attempt to find the customer's correct email, usually by trying reasonable combinations of the misspelled email address. If all attempts fail, we will wait for the customer's outreach to resolve the issue. If we do not receive a support request within 48 hours, we will provide a full refund to the customer.
Your purchase consists of digital PDF templates of the 3D models for printing on paper and clear step-by-step instructions for assembling the model (there are no physical items sent by post).
You will gain instant access to these files (Compressed, ZIP files), which will be delivered to you online via an email containing the download link, usually within a few minutes after payment is confirmed. If you paid via Paypal, the download link will be sent to the email linked to your Paypal account.
If for any reason you do not receive your files (i.e. bounced email, wrong email etc.), please contact support@gopapercraft immediately.
No, re-selling/re-creating of GoPaperCraft templates and designs is strictly prohibited. GoPaperCraft designs and template guides are copyrighted. You are not allowed to use GoPaperCraft assets commercially/for profit or give them to 3rd parties for free. Legal action will be taken against fraudulent re-selling.
Visit your local stationery/supply/print shop with the templates in a thumb drive or cloud drive. Let them know about the required material/printing options stated in the PDF guide and they will get it done for you. It is an inexpensive and hassle-free process!
We recommend any non-water based glue so that there will not be deformation of the paper due to moisture, but if your glue can stick well without wrinkling the paper, it works too. Many others suggest "Uhu" brand of art & crafts glue and that works great too.
We recommend using colored cardstock/paper of at least 176gsm (65 - 80lbs & above) for the best results. This is to ensure that the paper is not too flimsy and stays firm during the crafting process. Additionally, make sure that your printer is able to handle these heavier/thicker paper or print cardstock. You should be able to find the limits of your printer in the printer manual.
Alternatively, customers that are unable to print on cardstock / thicker paper can use this alternative crafting method. This means essentially printing it on white office paper and pasting it onto your cardstock/thicker paper as a guide to cut out the templates.
GoPaperCraft templates are not intentionally developed for cutting machines, this means customers that want to use them for cutting machines may have to bear the responsibility of cutting and scoring the files themselves.
In response to several customer inquiries, we decided to develop new SVG & DXF files (except for the cat template) and will send them to customers if they reach out to us with their order # via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). However, note that they may not be fully compatible with all cutting machines (customers may have to make certain adjustments to adapt).
Also, note that softwares like the Cricut Design Space has no way of knowing if our uploaded SVG file’s lines are actually score lines. Therefore, users will have to manually change the SVG's "fold lines" to score lines.
Customers may experience problems such as the SVG being divided into 5 separate mats when attempting to use the Cricut. This is because there are some pre-requisites users have to perform before the Cricut understands what to cut & score. Again, the software has no way of knowing if an uploaded SVG cut file’s lines are actually score lines - so users will have to ungroup the different layers (all lines and shapes), change the fold lines to "score", then attach all of them together before proceeding. Here is an excellent resource that may help you.
Occasionally, customers may encounter ID numbers being barely visible when printing onto black paper, or simply find it hard to see ID numbers and lines due to the color similarities. Customers that face this issue can use this alternative method of crafting. This means essentially printing it on white office paper and pasting it onto your black/darker paper as a guide to cut out the templates.
Being mainly a digital goods business, we are unable to advise you as to the exact suppliers, as for our own personal use we source our crafting materials offline in local supply shops (we are not based in the US/UK). Different customers have their own ways of procuring these items, and many are able to find those in local office supply / print / stationery stores as well. An alternative will be to look for suppliers in major online marketplaces such as Amazon/Staples/Walmart, or search on Google "papercraft supplies (Country)" and you should be able to find some online suppliers of at least 65lb/176gsm A4 colored cardstock. Point to note, it may be difficult to find A4 sized cardstock in US sites, so you may have to look for international sites like "papercraft supplies UK" where A4 is more common.
Yes, you can but page scaling has to be applied in the print settings for PDF viewers - just make sure to reduce all templates to 94% of the original size so that they will not be cut off. This is to ensure that all pages are of the same scale so the model can be assembled correctly (Note that size of the model will also be 94% of stated size).
For customers that are unable to tweak their print settings, please contact us at email@example.com and we will send you US letter size versions (*with exception of the cat template).
This is a measure we put in place to prevent fraudulent orders that spread the link to our files. For customers, we can reset the download count if you reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or send the files to your email directly (if you face issues downloading via the link).
