I purchased four notebooks with animals on the covers. These will make great gifts for my young nieces. I'm sure they will love them.

Additional policies and FAQs
:~ Gift Purchases ~:
If your purchase is a gift, please let me know this in the "message to seller" along with the address it is to be sent to and any little note you would like the recipient to receive. I will happily include a gift card with your message in the package (there is no extra charge for this service).

:~ Custom Orders ~:
Yes! I print custom jobs all the time! Please contact me if you are interested in having something personalized or have a special project of your own you'd like to have letterpressed. For a quote, convo me the following info:

1. What you want printed -

2. What are the dimensions -

3. How many -

4. The number of ink colors - for instance "two colors on front, one on back"

5. Paper preferences if any, I'm happy to suggest some -

If you want me to print some that is your own design, it needs to be a high resolution image, preferably saved as a PDF file in Illustrator with the type outlined. If this is going to be difficult for you I do also offer design services - send me a convo, lets talk!

One final note, because of a number of factors, the need to make plates and the hand made process among them, letterpress can't really qualify as a budget printing method. That said I keep my prices very reasonable and I happy to work with you to make this as cost effective as possible!

:~ Wholesale ~:
If you run a store and would like to sell my work there, please contact me! I have my items in a number of stores in the San Francisco Bay area, but am always looking to expand.
