Description

"It All Began In China"

Our journals are versatile and can be used for many things: writing journals, travel journals, autograph books, notebooks, diaries, scrapbooks, sketchbooks, memory books, photos, wedding ideas, proposals, engagements, love notes, family and kids, pet journals, graduation gifts, guest books, shower gifts, pregnancy and adoption diaries, fitness, school, teacher appreciation… just about anything!

--Journals are handmade in 3-5 business days and measure 5" x 7".
--Front cardstock covers are 80 lb. weight cardstock and are available in brown Kraft and white.
--All front covers and inside paper and cardstock page choices are acid-free. Acid-free paper and cardstock will last much longer than non-acid-free materials, so your memories will last for a very long time.
--Back covers are made of chipboard which provide a firm writing surface.
--Each journal is bound with black twin loop wire binding which allows the journal to lay flat when it is open and also have full page rotation.
--We print with high quality settings in black ink and/or color ink, depending on the journal you choose.
--Every journal is individually wrapped in a re-sealable clear cello bag and carefully packed for shipping.

FOUR PAPER CHOICES:
--40 sheets (80 sides) of 24 lb. blank white acid-free paper
--40 sheets (80 sides) of 24 lb. lined white acid-free paper
--20 sheets (40 sides) of 65 lb. blank white acid-free cardstock which is recommended for scrapbooks, photos, sketchbooks, etc. This 65 lb. cardstock is scrapbook quality and is sturdy enough for photos, autographs, stickers, ticket stubs, etc.
--20 sheets (40 sides) of 65 lb. blank brown Kraft acid-free cardstock which is also recommended for scrapbooks, photos, sketchbooks, etc. The weight is also scrapbook quality.

NEED MORE PAPER? Add more lined paper, blank white paper, white cardstock pages, or brown Kraft cardstock pages. Here's the link:

--Paper materials are partially or 100% recycled, therefore please allow for variations and slight imperfections in paper, cardstock, and covers.
--Colors on computer monitor colors can vary. Also, journals printed in color on brown Kraft covers will naturally have more muted colors than those printed on white covers.

♥ The journal in this listing comes as is. To create your own, please order under our "Your Custom Text, Quote, or Message Here" listing link:
www.etsy.com/listing/180361163/your-custom-quote-or-message-here-choose

Shipping policies

PLEASE READ:
--Entering an incorrect or incomplete address could delay your shipment or make it undeliverable so please check your address carefully. We are NOT responsible for incorrect addresses given to us. Sometimes when a package with an incorrect address is returned by the USPS, it can take several weeks for it to come back to us and sometimes it does not come back at all.

--Please contact us before you purchase if you would like to add INSURANCE to your package for shipping. Please notify us to see what the additional cost will be for your location before you purchase your item(s). Purchasing insurance is your responsibility and we will need your zip code to determine the amount. Also, please note, we cannot file claims for loss, damage, or non-delivery for uninsured packages.

--If you would like to UPGRADE YOUR POSTAGE (DOMESTIC ORDERS ONLY) for faster shipping, you can upgrade your shipping at our "Priority Upgrade Shipping" item listing. Here is the link:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/226031288/priority-shipping-upgrade-united-states
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE USPS DOES NOT GUARANTEE EXPECTED DELIVERY DATES FOR FIRST CLASS OR PRIORITY SO NEITHER CAN WE. We do not ship packages overnight.

--We cannot ship to MULTIPLE ADDRESSES on one order. Items going to more than one address must be ordered separately (as totally separate orders). If we receive an order with multiple addresses, all items will be shipped to the primary shipping address.

--For DOMESTIC ORDERS, we ship within 3-5 BUSINESS days after receiving your order via the United States Postal Service. Often we ship quicker. The USPS gives us the best service for the lowest price so we can pass those savings on to you. Once your package is mailed, shipping times are usually an AVERAGE of 3-5 BUSINESS days for DOMESTIC ORDERS. We will notify you when we ship. Entering an incorrect or incomplete address could delay your shipment or make it undeliverable so please check your address carefully. We are NOT responsible for incorrect addresses given to us.

--When shipping DOMESTIC Priority Mail items of $50.00 or more, $50.00 of insurance is provided free. Any additional insurance required to cover the full amount of the order is purchased by us and included in the buyer's shipping cost. It is our policy not to ship orders over $50.00 without this additional insurance.

--For INTERNATIONAL ORDERS, shipping times vary and could take as long as 28 BUSINESS days, depending on the destination. Sometimes customs delays can extend this time further. For a few destinations, it can sometimes take 5-7 business days after it is mailed before it even leaves the United States. We will notify you when we ship. We cannot file claims for international orders and we do not offer Priority Mail on international orders.

--After an INTERNATIONAL ORDER leaves the United States, WE HAVE NO WAY OF TRACKING it any longer, so we cannot give you an Expected Delivery Date. Also, please know that WE CANNOT VERIFY INTERNATIONAL ADDRESSES. Entering an incorrect or incomplete address could delay your shipment or make it undeliverable so PLEASE CHECK YOUR ADDRESS CAREFULLY. We ship in good faith to the exact address you give us and we cannot refund any postage charges.

--Customs fees, tariffs, or duties applied are the responsibility of the buyer; we do not include these fees in our shipping cost.

--All shipping charges incurred are non-refundable.

Additional policies

DISCOUNTS: It is our policy not to discount our journals. Instead, we try to keep the price per journal as low and reasonable as possible for all of our customers everyday, and we have determined that the $6.00 price ($6.95 for personalized or customized journals) is as low as we can go. We have found that because each journal is made by hand and the materials remain constant, our cost is the same whether we are making one or 100. Therefore, we have chosen to present them at the lowest price we can possibly afford, rather than mark them up and then offer discounts or have sales. We do, of course, refund shipping/handling/insurance overages (if any) when the order is shipped and we know what the actual charges are.

CUSTOM JOURNALS: If you would like to order a custom/personalized journal, please order under the item listing "Your Custom Quote or Message Here." The link is:

--Please leave your instructions to us in the "Note to Seller" section of the order. We reserve the right to turn down any request for customization if the scope is too extensive based on the price we charge for our products.
--We will convo you with any questions we might have about your order and work with you to achieve what you have in mind. If we do not receive a reply from you, we will use our best judgment to fulfill your request.
--Custom and/or personalized items are not returnable.
