We use paper and envelops that are 30-100% post consumer recycled and that use renewable energy sources – such as electricity generated by windmills. What we look for in our paper: Chlorine free, alternative energy sources, wind powered, hydro-power, and 30-100%PCW.

***Shipping***

I will ship to your Etsy email.

I ship USPS with 2-3 business days of your order. All paper goods are shipped in cellophane sleeves in a heavy-duty mailer. I am not responsible for orders that are lost or damaged though USPS. Please contact me if you would like insurance on an item and we can discuss the extra fee.

I do not ship overseas due to issues in the past. For some reasons, orders take longer from the US to Canada than the UK! If you would like to order and you are not in the US, please convo me first.

Currently, I am not accepting returns or offering refunds. I will give you an exchange for the same/similar item if there is a problem with your item.
