creative silhouette

Some books are impossible to put down. But for those times when you HAVE to pause, I make unique bookmarks to hold your place. I trace each one from a stencil (which is also handmade) onto black paper, meticulously cut it out by hand with an Olfa exacto knife, and laminate it using self-seal laminate sheets. No machines- just old-fashioned handicraft!

Working with paper has always been one of my favourite things. Also, reading. And travel. And geekiness. So here's where it all comes together and spills out!

Soli deo gloria, sit sine labe decus.

Returns and exchanges
I hope you will love your purchase from GracefulDiligence. If you are not completely satisfied with your item, please contact me within 7 days to arrange a return or exchange. Items must be returned unused and in proper packaging. Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer.
I accept payments via direct checkout and PayPal.
All items will be packed carefully and shipped to you after payment. I try my best to get orders in the mail the day after purchase, and I ship first-class unless otherwise noted. Because I use first-class, I do not track packages. If you need your purchase tracked, please contact me and I'll see what I can do!

Any fees incurred due to international customs or import duties are the responsibility of the customer.

Bookmarks are shipped in first-class envelopes. Allow 1-6 business days for delivery within the US. If you live outside of the US, delivery times vary by destination. Generally, international letters are delivered within 6-14 business days.

For environmental and economic reasons, I do not ordinarily include printed receipts in shipments. You will receive a digital receipt from Etsy at time of purchase, but if you need me to include a printed receipt with your order, please let me know.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are hand-made in a smoke-free, pet-free environment.

Buying a gift? I can ship directly to your recipient and include a special note, if you choose.

Feedback from customers is very important to me. After creating products for you, I love to be informed of their safe arrival and your satisfaction.

I welcome any suggestions and ideas! If there's anything you would like to see in the shop, please contact me!
