"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one,” George R.R. Martin aptly said. Every reader knows the power of literature to transport one to other worlds, see things through different eyes and live experiences he never would have in his own life. This shiny little patch celebrates the life-changing power of books!

Patch is my original design with iron on backing and measures 2" x 3" with metallic gold thread.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)

Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.


International orders generally take 7 -30 business days (so up to five weeks) to arrive. If you are worried about your order and it has been 5 weeks since it was mailed, please contact me!

All international orders are shipped via USPS First Class international Package. This comes with tracking, but it is pretty unreliable and not a good indicator of where your package is.

I am partnering with a third party shipping company that consolidates international package prior to the parcels entering the United States Postal System. This allows me to keep shipping costs affordable for international customers. It will at times add a slight delay to transit times.
