About LittleScribblesPaper

Sales 2,493
On Etsy since 2017


Welcome to our little nook of ink & paper nestled in the laid-back coastal community of Arroyo Grande, California. A lot of our designs are hand painted and illustrated by me, which means you won't find them anywhere else. :) We lovingly design, print and cut every order by hand in our studio. Our paper is recycled & FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified coverstock and cardstock of premium quality, delivering crisp lines & deeply saturated color while keeping mother nature in mind print by print. We hope you enjoy your look around and find something unique that speaks to you at Little Scribbles.

Copyright© M. J. Goulart 2017-2020

• Now for some legal jargon...
All rights reserved. No images may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any way or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise, without prior written permission of M. J. Goulart. Personal use only.

Our ink & Paper

• We only use professional ink, no knock-offs, ever. Because even drinking knock-off soda is a bummer, and we never want your colors to look like a sad clown's makeup.
• By using professional ink, this means that our ink quality holds true print after print, while delivering long-lasting quality in deeply saturated color.

• We only source paper made by enchanted forest elves... Just kidding, but our paper is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified and (mostly) recycled. We also focus on supporting companies that promote sustainable practices and are headquartered right here in the good ol' USA. I know, the elf thing sounds way better...

The Back of our Cards

•Just like every major stationery/card maker around the globe...there will be a small logo on the back of your stationery. For our invitations and flat stationery, there is a small line of text, which is located at the very bottom. Folded stationery has a logo somewhere in the middle. The only exception are our recipe cards, which are fully lined.

•Why do we do this?
In short, an artist always signs their work. And if they don't, then we probably haven't heard of them. We design, print, cut and package your order. That means that your order is under copyright; we own that design.
So, just like you wouldn't ask any artist to paint over their own name, don't ask us.
We are proud of our work and we aren't afraid to show it.

Sending your information to the shop

• KINDLY, send all of your information for your order during checkout or send us an Etsy not speak to us as if we just ran over your cat, stole your favorite sweater and might send all of your personal info to Russian spies. It's not nice.
• Also, please review all of your information, including your shipping address to make sure it is correct. It's true, you are responsible for reading your own message. So please do so, making sure all of your information is correct upon checkout.
• Please do not provide your phone number for contact information. We only converse with our customers via Etsy Messaging.

Changes & Customization

• We aim to please (if you're nice), however every invitation and item is different. Therefore, we ask that you KINDLY (there's that word again) contact the shop prior to purchase to make sure your requests can be accommodated. Customizations will not be completed unless approved by the shop prior to ordering. Otherwise, your order is subject to cancelation.
• While we are happy to accommodate simple custom requests free of charge, more complex requests may require a minimal fee (simple math: more work = more money).
• Custom quantities are always welcome, contact the shop for an accurate quote.
• Changes are not available for digital printables


• Digital invitation files are only available for select invitations and are not available for bundles or coordinating items. Digital invitation files are available in JPEG format only and are available in 1 exact size: 5x7”. We do not customize the size of our files. The size you purchase is the size you will receive. All files are sent in 310 dpi.
• For all digital information, please see the listing description for our full digital policy. No, seriously, read it. Our digital policy is pretty specific on how our files should and shouldn't be used.
• All of our products, digital included, are only for private use.

Invitation Proofs

• Proofs are usually sent within 1-2 business days (M-F) after purchase unless there is a holiday and/or shop closure. We are a small family business...(translation: we are busy people, with two toddlers, running multiple businesses. Which means our shop hours and days are strict, like that super strict teacher you had in the 3rd grade. So, if you're not cool with us bursting into your cubicle at work and demanding our order/proof/answer right away, chances are we aren't either.)
• Relax, unwind and take that chill pill with a nice merlot. We will answer your questions/get you your proof/ship your order as soon as possible.
• And if you would like to ask us a question (nicely) or have a concern about your order, shoot us an Etsy message.

Shipping speed USPS

• USPS PRIORITY MAILl: 1-3 business days
• USPS FIRST CLASS: 2-5 business days
• USPS STANDARD SHIPPING: 2-8 business days
• Print orders of 20 prints or less ship first class, print orders of 25 prints or more ship standard shipping. Plan those purchases so you're not a Procrastinating Patty!

Entering the wrong information at checkout

• It enter the wrong shipping address and frustration ensues. Contact us ASAP and we will cancel your order and issue you a refund so you can re-purchase with the correct shipping address. This is the most secure way of getting your order to you in a timely manner.
• If you need to change your personalization, contact us with your order number and the corrected information ASAP via Etsy Messaging and we'll make a note of it on your order.
• However, keep in mind that we aren't magicians...even though that would be sweet! Unfortunately, if your order has already shipped with the wrong information, we won't be responsible for wrong information and/or for you not receiving your item due to a wrong shipping address.

Help, my order is misspelled

• We double and triple check every order. However, on a rare occasion, an error may occur. If you have purchased an order without a proof and the shop has made a spelling error, we will gladly fix it free of charge. However, the shop will not be held responsible for buyer mistakes or if an order has been approved for printing by the buyer.
• Please double-check all information carefully before submitting your order. This is the best way of ensuring your information is correct.
