・Why use paper to build effect parts?
Basically PAPER-EFFECT products serve the same purpose as PVC effect parts, which is to bring you more fun and dynamic atmosphere while you are displaying your figure collections. At the same time PAPER-EFFECT products do have some advantages over normal PVC effect parts. First is that they are much cheaper because they are paper crafts. Second is that they are reusable. As long as it’s not for commercial uses, customers can make copies of the templates, we don’t forbid them to do so for their personal uses. So customers can make new ones when the old ones are broken or worn out. Also they can build multiple sets to enable more dynamic display. The third advantage is that because the material is paper, more details can be made into the texture so the appearances of these paper craft effect parts can be even more dynamic and impressive than normal PVC effect parts. What’s more, the process of building a PAPER-EFFECT product can also be fun. It can be a training for your hands and brain, and can also be a way to help you to distress your mind.
