An Individual membership for a US resident is $30. Check here to see the various levels of membership and the exciting benefits.
Basic membership benefits include our quarterly magazine, The Paper, our online magazine The Fold, a 10% discount at our store, The Origami Source, and many other benefits – to see the full list check here.
To keep costs down we send our quarterly magazine The Paper by bulk mail. While bulk mail is economical, it is a slow trip to your mailbox. So for those that can’t wait to read the latest origami news you may want to include the additional cost for first class postage. First class postage is automatically included in the higher membership levels.
If you send your form in by mail, it takes our home office about two weeks to process and ship your membership welcome package to you. If you join online, it will still take several days to send out the welcome package but you can start enjoying online members-only content immediately.
Inside the packet you will find a membership card, the latest issue of The Paper, a list and order form from The Origami Source and a letter from the membership chairman, welcoming you to our organization.
Yes. In the comment field on your order form, enter “new member verify with home office” and we’ll be sure that your discount is applied to your order. If you joined online, then your discount on purchases made online is effective immediately.
We have our own store that operates by mail order and online orders, called The Origami Source. It is an excellent source for origami books and supplies recommended by our members. If you would like a free copy of the supplies list please send a self address business envelope with two(2) first class stamps to the address below or call or e-mail us.
For privacy reasons we are unable to give out any member’s contact info, however, if you have correspondence for a particular member we are happy to forward it on to them so they may respond to you directly.
