About

Special memories deserve a beautiful storage place!

My name is Paula Derksen and I am a bookbinder & box maker based in The Netherlands and active on Etsy since November 3rd 2015. I have my own bindery and live near the sea.
Originally, I worked as a teacher, but during my teacher training, I already developed a passion for visual arts and in particular for working with beautiful paper.

In 2005, I came in contact with bookbinding for the first time, and took my first lessons in the subject.
In 2010, I successfully completed my training in hand bookbinding at the VNH (Dutch association for hand bookbinders).

In addition to traditional binding, I have specialized in making wedding albums, ring boxes, storage wedding boxes and concertinas.

If you want to keep up-to-date with everything I make, you can follow me on my website or social media via the links in this "about this shop" section.

Thanks and have a nice day!
Paula

iDeal payments / Betalingen via iDeal

You may experience difficulties when trying to pay with iDEAL.
It is a long known bug on Etsy.

If you want to use the iDeal payments method (in the Netherlands) you need to define at least one shipping address to the Netherlands in your account settings. This address does not need to be your default shipping address.
Furthermore, you need to set your currency to Euro.

If you still have problems paying via iDeal, please order via my webiste www.1000and1weddings.com

How do you calculate your shipping costs?

My shipping costs are based on what PostNL (in the Netherlands) charges me (including costs for track and trace). On top of that 21% VAT is added. Next comes commission fees Etsy charges me for shipping and finally package and handling costs.

Where possible I make use of strong cardboard envelopes to keep shipping costs as low as possible. If you order more items at the same time, shipping costs for a package are automatically calculated.

Everything is send with track and trace and I will send you that code as soon as I have shipped your order.

Possible fonts / lettercorpses

Names, a (wedding or birth)date, a location or titles on books are foilpressed by me the artisan way, using lead letters at high temperatures. I use foil on linen or blindpress on leatherlook products.
I only have a limited amount of lettercorpses at my disposal, see www.1000en1boeken.nl/ondemand.php.

NOTE: not all lettercorpses are suited for each product.

For guest books: Aigrette, Mistral and Smalle Mercator.
For ringen boxes: Aigrette, Mistral and Smalle Mercator.

Nobel is especially suited for blindpressing leatherlook products.

If you would like the Rockwell or Atlas to be used, please consult with me beforehand.

Your own logo on products

I regularly get the question whether a home-made logo can be printed on my products.

I still print in a traditional way with my own lead letter corps.
A (wedding) logo can be made and ordered, which can be used in my foil press, although there is a price tag for a cliché (at least € 150), plus that you are also limited to the maximum size that my foil press can handle.

That is why I always refer to my letter corps. Perhaps there is something that appeals to you.
