What does PALANCA mean?
There are lots of definitions out there. While it literally
translates into "lever" I think of it as : Gifts
of Prayer, Service, and Sacrifice.
It is important to remember that true Palanca is not the
"stuff" but Service and Sacrifice that is given. The "stuff"
is just a physical reflection of those sacrificial gifts.
What is "Agape"?
Agape…… the self-giving love of God in Christ.
Why are your prices so low?
Yes, I suppose I could charge more but I choose
to make these products available and AFFORDABLE for all.
Does Palanca Gifts run a brick and mortar store?
When Palanca Gifts opened online in 2005, one of our primary goals was to offer affordable Palanca and Agape. As a result, we choose to keep our expenses low in order to pass along the best retail prices possible. At this time, we do not operate a retail location. However, our products are
carried in many church and retail bookstores. If you are interested in locating a store near you, please give us a call or send an email with your
location and we'll do our best to point you to the store nearest you.
What are your hours? How can I reach you?
We are available for your questions via phone (800.859.6876) and email (email@example.com) Monday - Saturday from 8 AM - 5 PM EST.
Why can't I order bookmarks,
notecards or stationery separately?
To keep our prices competitive, we do our printing in matching SETS. By the
same token, the majority of our customers prefer MATCHED sets. As we grow, we
will make changes to meet the needs of our customers but at this time, we only
sell the matched sets.
We listened to your requests and special Bookmark Bundles are now available!
I am not comfortable using my credit card on the internet.
Can I still order?
Of Course! Although our credit card processing is done on
a totally secure SSL server, we DO provide an alternative!
