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

Welcome to my shop!

All ring boxes, photo albums and accordion books are handmade in my own bookbindery. Each product is special, unique in design, lining, texture, color, or lining. I only work with high quality (acidfree) materials.

On my website www.1000en1boeken.nl you can see behind the scenes by following the menu item "the bindery".

I care deeply about quality, therefore all my product are made with attention to detail.
I hope you appreciate my handcrafted items and you have a great time looking around in my shop.
Do mind though, because it is all made by hand, the given dimensions for an item may vary very slightly.

Please note that your monitor or screen can show the colors slightly different from what they actually are. This depends on the technology used in your device and its exact settings.

iDeal payments / Betalingen via iDeal

iDeal may crash often on Etsy. It is a long known bug on Etsy. You have to put the language in Dutch and the currency in euros.
If you still encounter problems with iDEAL or cannot find iDEAL in your shopping cart, please contact me so I can help you.

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 & insurance (except domestic) ). 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 https://www.1000en1boeken-shop.nl/c-4637479/personaliseren/ and https://www.1000en1boeken-shop.nl/c-4913649/voorbeelden-personalisatie/

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 corpses, nothing is done by computer, it is all done by hand. If I have to print a logo, I first have to order a cliché made of your logo by another company. A cliché comes with a price tag (minimum €150), plus that you are also limited to the maximum size that my foil press can handle. That is why I have decided not to print logos on my products anymore. That's why I refer to my lead fonts. Perhaps there is something there that appeals to you.

A follow up question that I often get, Can I also buy an unpersonalized product from you. I am sorry, I only sell personalized products.

Shipping during COVID-19

NOTE 1: I cannot guarantee anything, once I ship it, it is in the hands of the postal services and out of my control. I cannot help you during this time.

NOTE 2: Message from my postal service PostNL:
At all destinations we see delays due to COVID-19. Countries take various measures and they also change continuously. PostNL has no influence on this. Therefore, we are currently unable to comment on the expected delivery time.

See my shipping policies for further information + typical delivery times.

How quickly can you ship out / deliver?

In a listing you can see the different delivery times for each product.

If something is out of stock or a color is unchecked, the delivery time for that product is longer. Please contact me then for information.

Keep in mind that the delivery times may increase during the busy wedding season. If you have wishes that can not be found in the shop, which would lead to a custom order, I have to schedule such an order in my agenda. And you have to account then for the making / drying time in the book press.

Can you make a test print before actual printing?

I am not able to make a letterpress proof.
I foil press everything by hand with lead letters (no computer), every letter is picked by hand and it would be to expensive.
The prize of printing in my shop is low, therefore I cannot make proof prints.
