Q: What is NAME?
A: NAME is the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts. You can get more info
Q: Do I have to be a NAME member to participate?
A: Yes and No. You do have to be a NAME member to sign up and purchase the kit. But you're welcome to join us for the chats and games and auction whether or not you're a NAME member. You can even participate in the swaps!
Q: Do I have to be a QC member to participate?
A: Yes, you do. Since some of our costs are offset through QC fundraising and since we provide discounts on our kits, this is just for QC members.
Q: Can I buy more than one kit?
A: No. Just one per person, please. Again, because QC offsets some of the costs, we need to limit to just one kit per person. If you do want another desk kit, though, you can buy from one of the NAME day cutters directly.
Q: Can I buy just the roombox?
A: Not through QC, but you can get one directly from Liz West (
) It will not include the QC graphics.
Q: How do I tell you which graphic I want?
There are no special graphics for the desk itself, but if you order the roombox, you will get both sets of the wallpaper graphics shown, so you can decide later which to use, as well as the window scenery.
Q: When will NAME Day Kits ship?
A: Look for them towards the end of September or early October...in plenty of time for the QC NAME Day event on October 21st.
Q: Is shipping covered even for those of us outside of the US?
A: Yes. Again, some of our fundraising goes to pay for postage, so it is included. You are responsible for any customs charges, however, and packages are sent in compliance with the US customs regulations, so will be listed as merchandise, with a value equal to what you paid. The return address will be Janet Smith, though, not Desert Minis, Inc., which may help in some cases.
