Frequently Asked Questions

What is Relic?

Relic is a company formed on the belief that digital natives crave offline experiences. We're natural makers with creative ideas to spare, so let's use this creativity to learn some timeless skills. Our team at Relic imagines and then curates each kit to ensure we're setting you up for success, from quality, made in the USA contents, to easy-to-follow video instructions and an active support community. Relic isn't just what's in the box, it's the learnings you'll now be able to apply tomorrow.


What's in the box?

We're a subscription service, so each month, you'll receive a different skill kit. Each box or kit will include the essentials you'll need to learn a new hobby. We do our best to include everything you might need, but some everyday items (like screwdrivers, sugar, hammers, etc) may not be included. 

   Hard Cider Fermenting Kit includes (month 1):

  • 3x Yeast sachets
  • 3x Airlocks w/ rubber stoppers
  • Glass fermenting carboy jug
  • 4x Cider bottles & corks
  • Easy-to-follow instructions

   Wooden Handle Folding Knife Kit includes (month 2):

   7.25" open, 4.25" closed

  • High-carbon stainless blade
  • Brass bolsters
  • Pivot pin
  • Thumb bob
  • Ebony wood handles
  • All necessary screws
  • Torque wrenches
  • Genuine leather sheath with brass snaps
  • Easy-to-follow instructions

   Home Roasting Coffee Kit includes (month 3):

  • 4lbs of fresh green coffee beans
  • Artisan coffee mug
  • 2x unique flavor oils
  • Manual stovetop roaster
  • Easy-to-follow instructions 


How long does each kit take to complete?

Our kits are meant to introduce you to a new, life-long skill. While one could spend all day researching and learning more, they're intended to be completed in under an hour. Keep in mind, our fermenting kit can take up to a week to be ready for consumption and freshly roasted coffee will taste better 24 hours later


Are your products made in the USA?

Using top-notch tools and materials is very important to us. That said, we're doing our best to source every item in our kits from the US–ideally from family-owned businesses, but occasionally we need to source products from overseas. We do our best to limit those instances.


Is Relic only for men?

No way. While many of the skills may historically be considered masculine, male genitalia are not required to complete any of our kits. In fact, having junk may pose an additional risk–but hey, you know what you're getting into.


Are Relic kits appropriate for kids?

Since we're selling cider fermenting, we require everyone to be 21+ to purchase our kits. However, many of our kits are appropriate for the whole family. 


Is shipping included?

Yes! All of our kits include FREE shipping and handling within the USA.


Do you ship internationally?

Not currently, but we hope to very soon. At the moment, we're only shipping within the USA.


Will I get a tracking number with my purchase?

Yes, once your order is fulfilled (1 to 2 business days), then we'll send you a tracking number via email.


How long does a subscription last?

Subscriptions last for three months and do not auto-renew. We're working hard on our next round of boxes, so please sign up for our newsletter in the footer of any page to be notified when our next kits are available. 


What if I need help or have a question?

Each kit ships with a QR code that when scanned, will give you access to a step-by-step video tutorial as well as a link to ask our team any questions along the way. You're also welcome to use our contact form if you have any questions in the meantime.


What if I don't like it?

Bummer. If you don't like your kit, contact us and we'll do our best to make it right. Your satisfaction is our top priority.
