This is perfect for my wedding pictures. It’s so beautiful and displays the pictures with an heirloom quality format. It’s also unique for a photo album. I’m so happy with how this turned out, it is the best option for displaying high quality photos.

Strength, Beauty, Function

I met Molly in 2005 when we both worked at the best stationery store in the world.

There she taught me how to make paper and books, and I learned a lot about running a business. Molly left that store to pursue HSS full time in 2007, and I joined her in 2010.

Now we work together to produce books and boxes that are strong, beautiful, and functional. We spend a lot of time working in the studio together: me typing and clicking, her cutting and gluing, both of us eating muffins and making bad puns.

We hope to see our Etsy shop grow in the coming years, and we are happy you are visiting.

Returns and exchanges
Due to the amount of labor and love that goes into our products, we do not accept returns or offer refunds on made-to-order items. However, we will go to great lengths to answer any questions you have before ordering to ensure that your order arrives perfect.

We do, of course, guarantee the quality, accuracy, and craftsmanship of our products. If we have made a mistake on your order, we will happily offer you a refund or replacement.

Please keep in mind that there are natural variations in our materials -- different color threads in the cloth, scuffs on the leather, etc.

We are not responsible for any damages/losses that occur once items have shipped. That said, we'll gladly help you get to the bottom of any unresolved issues.
Payment Types:
We accept major credit cards, Paypal, and Etsy gift cards.

Turnaround Time and Rush Orders:
See "Shipping Policy" below for details.

If you need to cancel your order, you may do so up to 24 hours after your order has been placed, no worries. Cancellations after that cannot be fully refunded.

See "Refund Policy" below for details.
Made-to-order items ship 3-4 weeks from the date your order is placed, OR from the date you approve your plaque or debossing proof.

RUSH Policy:
If you need a made-to-order item sooner, contact us about the availability of RUSH orders. If we are able to accommodate your rush order, we will charge a 50% rush fee for jobs requiring a turnaround of fewer than 2 weeks (fewer than 3 weeks for jobs with blind debossing or silkscreening.) Keep in mind that we may also need to expedite shipping to get these items to you quickly.

*We strongly believe in re-use and in being kind to the earth, so we often ship our items with clean, re-used packing materials. Our shipping boxes are sturdy and brand-new, but you may find some wacky scraps of bubble wrap and paper inside your box. Not to worry, your books are beautiful and safe inside.*
