Greetings from the LumiBox team!
We thought it might be a good idea explain the subscription box world. You might not be familiar with what you get when you sign up for a subscription box.
1. Pick a Plan
First things first. We would LOVE to welcome you into the LumiBox community.
We have three different plans to choose from. Select which option you would like (1 month, 3 month or 1 year) depending on what makes sense for you. The one year plan is the best value per month, but you prepay the entire year upfront. The three year plan is the most popular one currently.
Once you pay for your subscription, it will automatically renew after your term is up. So if you sign up for a year, you get charged when you check out, then next year your subscription will automatically renew in the same month you signed up. We find this really helps with the flow of it all, so you won’t miss out on a box! If you sign up for three months, you pay for three months up front, and your plan will renew after three months, for another three months.
3. We Pack Your Box
Once we get your order on the world wide web, a choir of angels launches into a rendition of "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen, but they're angels.
Usually all of our children run screaming into the backyard.
Then your unfolded box is expertly folded, nay, caressed into a box-like shape by a mother of four and slayer of diapers. Your box awaits its contents like a valiant knight awaiting his sword and shield. Your box cannot handle the anticipation and wants so desperately to be shipped to you. Will you accept him lovingly into your home? Your box imagines what your house will smell like. Do you have dogs? Do your dogs hate boxes? Only time will tell. Your box is brave.
The angels are really getting into it now. My wife then fires a literal cannon of packing fluff from our kitchen into the living room, where your box catches it expertly. Your box now awaits atop a velvet pillow perfectly designed just for boxes awaiting.
A parade of literal Swiss Guards enters our modest home with much fan fare, each carrying a different item for your box. They march around our dining room table and our kids trip one by kicking him in the shins. There's no hope for him. Leave him. There are more important matters at hand!
Each Swiss Guard places all of their/your items into the box with the love and delicacy of a mother koala bear. The angels are really going now. When finally the last item is placed into your box (your month's edition of Daylights, filled with daily devotions) confetti is thrown into the air. A bottle of champagne pops off. The Swiss Guards and our entire family and the angels are all cheering and celebrating. Tears are shed. Hugs are given. Stephen Colbert stands on a chair and gives a speech.
Silence falls over the company of merriment. My wife very carefully applies a layer of tape, guarding the box from enemies. A whispered prayer is said. And finally, your box is ushered into a room where the Fellowship of Boxes is holding council.
Now the Fellowship is complete. Your box is ready.
4. Wait for Your Box
After we ship your box, you get to wait in suspense for your box to come in the mail. They should arrive at the beginning of each month.
And just maybe you will be lucky enough to hear your kids yell, “MAIL DELIVERY!!!” when UPS drops it off at your front door. (Makes my day. Every. Time.)
5. Open Your Box
The moment has come! You get to open your box to find the curated Catholic art, music, and goodies we have sent with you in mind. Most of the items we will keep a surprise until everyone has received their box. We hope it puts a smile on your face and hope in your heart. Take a picture with your box and share it online! Your box has been through a lot...
6. Enjoy and Share Your Box
We want to build a community of people growing in their faith together. We want to build a box that isn't just a bunch of stuff sent to you, but helps you engage in your faith, remind you of God throughout your day, and build a community of people who are growing together. We'll have plenty of ways to share your experiences and prayers with other LumiBox subscribers. We hope to have ways that we can pray through the meditations together, and encourage one another. (Facebook group maybe?)
One really cool thing you can do with the contents of your box is to gift the things you don't want or feel like someone else could really use!
It's that Easy!
Remember your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the plan that you signed up for. You can cancel at anytime or return the box if you don't like it.
Just in case you really don’t like what is in your box, (but come on...you definitely will) you can ship it back within 5 business days. Shoot us an email so we know it’s coming our way and how we can do better in the future, and we will give you a full refund. We want you to be totally satisfied with what you are receiving, we put a lot of thought and prayer into what we are putting into our boxes!
We hope you enjoy your LumiBox!
Pax Et Bonum
