now accepting made-to-orders through 2pm US Central on Fri 9/29 to ship retail by 9/29-10/6 and wholesale by 10/13-10/20

our process

O R D E R I N G   P R O C E S S

We are proud to offer 19 color and 17 size options (and growing!) of our beautiful handmade papers. Because stocking large quantities of so many colors and sizes would be unmanageable for our small operation, we process orders on a weekly basis. Our cut-off for orders is 2pm US Central time on Friday afternoons, and handmade paper orders from our online retail shop will be made and shipped by the following Friday. (In the case that we have received more orders than we are able to process in one week, a banner on our website will announce that the ship date will be the Friday after.) Wholesale orders, because they involve larger quantities and/or letterpress services, will ship within two to three Fridays of the order cut-off.
