The E-gift Voucher (online purchases only): Our eco-friendly card is a quick and great way to tell someone you care. Valid for online use only. E-gift cards are sent via email and contain a discount code to enter a the time of checkout. This code is case sensitive, so it must be entered exactly as it appears on the voucher.

We kindly ask that e-gift cards be used within one year of the issue date. E-gift vouchers will be emailed to the recipient within 24 hours of purchase confirmation.

Included in the price is a letterpress gift tag with a message of your choosing. Traditional Gift Cards may be used at our beehive retail location. May not be used online. Traditional gift cards do not expire and will hold any unused balance until fully spent by the recipient. Traditional gift cards may not be redeemed for cash.

Hey, we hear you. Handmade things all look a little different. They are made to order, so will I get what you're showing me online? Is it going to take forever for me to get my handmade item? At the beehive, we're designers, family members, friends and customers in the handmade marketplace, just like you. It is our mission to work our hardest to make the handmade buying experience one that rocks (see the top of the page on how we feel about you), and one that makes you want to come back and purchase creative goods from us again and again.
If an item is made to order and will add production time before shipping, we'll tell you. If the material is a "found" material and may vary slightly from what is shown online, we'll tell you. If what you see is exactly the item you'll get (and will love), we'll tell you. We strive to provide as much information as you'll need to make an informed shopping decision about your potential handmade product, and if there's information we may have left out in the process, we'll be as communicative as possible to make sure you know of any changes every step of the way.
We believe we're the best handmade store in Atlanta, and look forward to proving that you with every purchase. We look forward to having you as a part of the beehive family, and don't hesitate to keep in touch.
It's easy to reach us. Email us 24 hours a day at firstname.lastname@example.org. Call our store and speak to one of our in-store designer at 404-581-9261. Find us online and learn more about us on this site. We're a small, dedicated shop, but respond to all emails (in the order received) within 24-72 hours of receipt, excluding holidays.
