Here are some frequently asked questions…
1 How many times can the crackers be reused?
Customers tell me they have already used theirs for over 5 years now. They are sturdy, but it does depend how kindly they are treated and if they are stored in a dry place.
2 Why are the crackers sold with low noise ecosnaps?
I have learnt over the years that not everyone is a fan of the loud bang crackers make. People with conditions such as; PTSD, Autism, ADHD etc. can find them distressing, and some just don’t like the noise or smell. So I decided to design a snap specially for them. The ecosnaps have no added compounds so can be fully recycled. They are also made in the UK.
3 How are these crackers pet-friendly?
Loud noises such as bangs from crackers can induce a flight or fight response in our pets. This can be distressing for the pets and their owners too. As each cracker comes with a low noise ecosnap, you can still enjoy pulling your crackers as usual, they pull with a gentle pop rather than a loud bang.
4 Are the snaps included with the crackers?
Yes these crackers come with the low-noise ecosnaps. You can also buy replacement snaps to reuse your crackers. These come in packs of 12 in a choice of ecosnaps and standard noisy snaps.
5 How large are they? What size gift can I put inside?
The area for the gift is 5.5cm x 5.5cm x 11cm. ‘Keep This Cracker’ is 28cm long when made-up.
You will find there is ample room to fit all kinds of goodies, like; chocolates, jewellery, small gadgets, socks, soaps, cosmetics, perfumes, gift cards, theatre tickets. And even an engagement ring! Perfect for those looking for a special way to pop the question.
6 Are there any instructions?
‘Keep This Cracker’ comes as a self assembly kit. All orders include full printed instructions in the inside of the packaging. Please read these carefully. If you’d like more information, you may find the videos on the ‘How to guides’ page useful. Please keep the packaging for future reference.
7 What are they made of?
The crackers are made from FSC® certified folding box board (paper from responsible sources). The Kraft crackers and reusable wallets are made with uncoated natural kraft board (PEFC certified compostable). They are printed in the UK using water/vegetable based inks and varnish, so they are fully recyclable. The glue used is water based.
The ribbons are made in the UK using yarn made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, sourced globally.
