About

Moving to the Big Red Barn Changed Everything

In 2009, I decided it was a good time to take on my passion for paper full time! While in the process of posting a listing for a customer who had ordered business cards, I had posted a photo of the cards in a simple, clear bag. That same posting was purchased by two others who assumed they were purchasing the bags only. It was that day in May that I realized other customers may like to share my crazy supply of packaging supplies (collected over many years and ever-expanding at the time)!

I am STILL adding special products that are stashed away - treasures to me. I have collections of vintage crystal montees, but I can't possibly part with one of the tens of thousands that I have - they just don't make them like that anymore! Or a prized collection of vintage post cards that are flowing from the craft room closet. Who can sell those sweet, hand-written messages so lovingly printed over 100 years ago? Or the millinery flower collection from a hat shop that closed in 1945? I just can't! Some of the ones I can part with (barely) you will find in the shop. Good thing we built the Big Red Barn!

Our inventory had steadily grown and cars no longer fit in the garage... first two bays, then three... when I started to take over the fifth bay, things got out of hand! We broke ground on the barn in June 2012 and moved in December of 2012. We have been expanding and organizing every day since and moved to the new Blanco building in June of 2013. It's a work in progress, but we are slowly getting our arms around it. I love my wonderful staff. They know that I am frequently "distracted by shiny" and they keep me focused. We always have a special project in progress - a special card design, photo session, wedding... it's a fun place to be!

Wonderful employees make it all happen - they are all local Blanco residents and do so much for our community... and then work to make great things happen at InkScissorsPaper. We could not have made the transition to the new building without them. Kay manages the shop and takes our great photos and Paige manages social media and make sure everything runs smoothly. They both work hard to answer your emails quickly and make sure that you receive your packages in record time! Kellye joined us last summer and she loves to make the packages look like gifts. Sarah is with us in the summer months and we use her handwriting skills to label everything in our shop and make special displays. They are wonderful and such an important part of the business!

They all understand my passion for texture and packaging. I am happy to share my collections with you and look forward to growing and changing with you.

Welcome to my shop - your source for a variety of packaging goods for your small business or event. My goal is to offer a good selection of items in small to large quantities to fit your needs. We strive to provide quality products and fast shipment of your products.

This is my full time job, along with offering rubber stamps and business graphics. I try to answer convos as quickly as possible. There are some days that are more challenging that others, such as high volume shipping days. I appreciate your convos and product suggestions and will work to get back to you as soon as possible.

My passion is packaging - paper, plastic, graphics... I love it all! If I can help you with any additional packaging needs, please let me know.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
PayPal is accepted for all orders. If you are paying by e-check, please note that PayPal places a hold on your funds (usually 3-8 days) and items will ship only after PayPal has released funds.

I charge taxes on product + shipping for items with a Texas delivery address.

International shipments may be subject to taxes; customs and other taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser. We will claim the value of your package on the customs declaration form as "merchandise".
Shipping
In general, we ship very quickly.

**** Cancellation requests or change order requests must be made via etsy email (conversations). Please do not email us outside of Etsy as we do not check emails as frequently and need to maintain our Etsy sales and records separately. ****

Shipping is completed every day now (Monday-Friday)! Thanks for helping my shop grow!

In order to keep our shipping prices low, most items are shipped via USPS First Class mail in the United States and USPS International First Class to other destinations. US Priority Mail will be used when required (by weight).

We try to keep shipping prices as low as possible while shipping as quickly as possible. Shipping calculations do not just include the actual cost of postage, but also packaging, labor, and handling and the cost of packaging materials. If you feel there is an issue with shipping charges, please ask us in advance of purchase so that you have all information needed to make your purchasing decision. If you require an alternate form of shipment (UPS, FedEx, etc.) please let me know in advance and we will obtain a quote. We retain proof of shipment for every package, but we do not add signature confirmation or insurance for every package. If you would like to add signature confirmation with package tracking or insurance to your order, please let us know in advance. Shipping charges will be adjusted to include these optional items or shipment via an alternate carrier at your request.

International orders are gladly accepted. I mark all items with product values; customs charges (if applied) are the responsibility of the buyer. Please provide a telephone number to be used with international shipping labels. International First Class shipping times can vary greatly - 6 days to 30 days is typical. Priority International shipping times are posted by USPS as 6-10 days typically. I am happy to adjust your order for International Priority - just let me know in advance and I will make posting adjustments for you and bill the balance due.

*** INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS ***
International shipments may be subject to taxes; customs and other taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser. We will claim the value of your package on the customs declaration form as "merchandise". Our prices do NOT include any import duty and GST/VAT assessed. Please contact your local customs office to determine in advance whether your items are subject to import duty or GST/VAT.

PACKAGES ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY INSURED FOR LOSS OR NON-DELIVERY. We gladly ship to all international destinations. Our posted shipping charges are the International First Class shipping rates and most packages shipped via international first class to international addresses arrive safely and within 5 weeks of shipment from our Texas, USA location. LOST PACKAGES ARE RARE, but on occasion, the postal delivery system will misplace a package. We always retain proof of shipment, but once the package leaves our shop, we are not in control of the transit times or delivery. You may choose insurance to protect against loss if desired. We do not purchase insurance on all packages, but it is an option available to you. If you would like to protect against loss of your package by the postal service, please select insurance in advance (PLEASE ADD THE NOTES AT CHECKOUT; OUR PACKAGES GO OUT QUICKLY AND WE LOOK AT CHECKOUT NOTES WHEN SHIPPING). We require full value insurance (the cost is usually $2.50-4.50). We will claim the full replacement value of your package on the customs declaration form. If you choose to purchase insurance, it is typical that we must wait 45-60 days after shipping prior to placing a claim, to allow for delayed delivery times. If you are purchasing from our shop, you are agreeing to the above conditions. We cannot self-insure shipments to international destinations. We retain proof of shipment to prove our packages were delivered to the United States Postal Service for processing and we can provide this information to you as needed. If case of non-delivery by your country's postal service, you MUST purchase insurance if you would like coverage for this type of loss. PLEASE INQUIRE in advance of payment and shipment. We do not provide for loss or damage of packages unless you have purchased insurance.

*** ALL REQUESTS FOR REFUND DUE TO NON DELIVERY MUST BE REQUESTED THROUGH PAYPAL if this is your payment method. *** We will provide information to PayPal regarding the shipment and PayPal will decide whether a refund is due; we will abide by the decision made by PayPal. We are sorry we must adopt this policy, however we are a small business and incur the shipping charges + product costs every time we ship. If you are concerned with loss of your package or product due to a postal service error or non-delivery by your postal service, it is best to pay for insurance (average cost $2.50-$4.50 per package). Thank you for your understanding.

You will typically receive a shipping notification via email when your order ships. This email is automatically generated by the Etsy system to reflect the address that was given to our shop within the Etsy transaction. If you have asked for an alternate address for shipment, the alternate address will not be reflected in the notification messages. As part of the notification, a "tracking number" will be listed. Please note that this is not a live tracking number, but a number assigned to confirm shipment delivery. It will notify me of delivery only when the package arrives at its destination. If you will require live tracking for your package, please let me know in advance; this service can be added at an additional charge. International order location updates will only be reflected until the packages leaves the United States (typically at the post office point of origin and the international hub departure). At this point, we only receive delivery status once the package has been delivered. We are unable to live track packages unless you have chosen an expedited method of delivery, such as FedEx or UPS shipping. If you require shipping via these methods, please notify us in advance so that we may obtain a shipping quote.
Refunds and Exchanges
**** Cancellation requests or change order requests must be made via etsy email (conversations). Please do not email us outside of Etsy as we do not check emails as frequently and need to maintain our Etsy sales and records separately. ****

Returns are gladly accepted for items that are not food-related, (food-related items include food safe bags, utensils, ice cream cups and drinking straws not a complete list). If you change your mind, just return the item to us in unused condition. When the unused item is received, you will be refunded the item total returned product amount (gross product purchase amount less shipping charges) less a 15% restocking fee or we will credit the returned product item total amount to another order (the restocking fee is waived in this case).

The buyer will bear the cost of return shipping of the product. The original shipping amount will not be refunded for items returned, as the expense was incurred when the item was originally shipped to the buyer.

If you are purchasing items that are customized, we are not able to accept a return. For items stamped, tied or otherwise semi-customized, a restocking fee of up to 50% may be applied to your order. Many of our items require our time to produce just for you. If you change your mind, we understand that this occurs, however, we may not be able to return the full purchase price as we may not be able to re-sell your items. (This also applies to packages that have been returned due to incorrect addresses, refusal, unclaimed or due to expired forwarding orders). Thank you for understanding these terms. If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to ask in advance! We want you to be happy with your items and we do provide samples at no or low cost so that you may assess whether the items will work for you in advance of purchase.

If I have made an error in my listing or shipped the wrong item, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can make arrangements for the return of the product.

If we receive a return package, we will contact you immediately. If we have made an error in the printing of your shipping label address, we will re-ship to the correct address at no cost to you. If you have indicated an incorrect shipping address in the checkout window, please notify us immediately via Etsy conversations. Please do not send emails to our published email address; we do not check emails as frequently as we check Etsy conversations and it is possible we will not see you notes in advance of shipment. We ship our packages quickly, so it is important to notify us immediately in case of an incorrect address. If you do not notify us of an address change via Etsy conversation and your items is shipped to the address posted in the transaction, we are happy to re-ship the items to you. Actual shipping charges will apply and we will add a listing to the shop for the charges for reshipment. Thank you for your understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please use only the Etsy conversation system for communication. We check Etsy convos regularly throughout the day. Thank you.

*** Cancellation requests or change order requests must be made via etsy email (conversations). Please do not email us outside of Etsy as we do not check emails as frequently and need to maintain our Etsy sales and records separately. ****

Invoices are not included (we like to cut down on paper prints for customers who do not require receipts)....please go to the "purchase" section of your account, where you can print a copy of the receipt if needed.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions. I am always looking for creative packaging ideas and if I think I can sell it, I will stock it!

Thanks for taking the time to read about my shop. I hope you enjoy the selection, quality and service.
