The Original Book-Paper Door Sign by The Little Bookish Gift Co.

Quiet Please I'm Reading ~ Handmade Wooden Door Sign ~ Hand decorated using recycled pages from classic literature and strung with biodegradable jute twine.

The perfect gift for readers, writers, students, librarians...in fact anyone who wants peace and quiet while they settle down with a cup of tea (or coffee, or hot chocolate) and a good book.

Size: 6in x 3in (15.2cm x 7.4cm)

These signs have been sealed but are not intended for outdoor use.

Note: We never put a good book down. We only use books that have been mistreated by their previous owners. Books come to us in all states of disrepair: some are torn as though a dog's been at it, some are creased so much they curl right over, some have been written in or over, some have even been attacked with candle wax (your guess as to why is as good as mine).

So we give these knackered old books a new lease of life by reusing the best bits from the text and end papers to make these unique signs. No two signs are ever the same.

Frequently asked questions about LittleBookishLtd

We love making personalised signs but please note the following:
Door signs:

+++ Additional charges apply

+++ We can only personalise/customise the foreground text. We are unable to paint door signs a different color, incorporate your own images, or change the font style. In certain circumstance we may be able to change the backing paper but please ask first!

+++ Please ensure the text/quote/name you require is 100% accurate as we cannot be held responsible for any spelling mistakes post-production.

+++ Once you've placed your order we will contact you with the mock-up design. This is the time to make any tweaks/changes. Once you have approved the final mock-up and are happy to proceed only then will we begin to make your item.
All items are carefully packaged to ensure safe arrival of your orders.

We don't currently offer a gift-wrapping service but if you'd like a handwritten note to the recipient on a small gift tag to be included please do ask or add a 'Note to Seller' when you place your order. Where we are not able to do this we will get in touch to let you know.
Door Signs: approx. 6 inch x 3 inch (15.3cms x 7.4cms)
Marble Coasters: approx. 3.9 inch x 3.9 inch (10cms x 10cms)
Greetings Cards: approx 6 inch x 6 inch (15.3cms x 15.3cms)
Door signs: These are sealed with varnish but are not suitable for outside use. They are quite robust but shouldn't be thrown in a temper.

Marble Coasters: Our natural marble coasters are waterproof, heatproof, and have been coated with a stain resistant solution. We do advise the following: Wipe clean only with a damp cloth. Do not put in the dishwasher. Do not use abrasive cleaning materials or scrub the tile as this may compromise the surface coating. Try not to drop it - they are heavy natural marble tiles and may bruise toes.

Greetings Cards: Take care when writing your message on the inside of the card because any mistakes will look messy if you have to cross them out (particularly if you've used a fountain pen! :)
