My current turnaround time will be 3 to 10 business days before shipping (excludes weekends). Thanks for your patience as we process notebook orders! If I can ship out orders faster, I will do my best to make that happen.
----------
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
While I've been open to shipping to most countries internationally for many years, there has been an increase in shipping delays and additional regulations that have been making it more difficult to ship outside the U.S. All countries outside of North America have been disabled from the shop. Please message me if you have a specific need to ship to your country with potential shipping risks. I cannot guarantee delivery dates due to those potential shipping delays internationally.
----------
Welcome to Paper Penguin Co! Here you will find handmade notebook inserts and refills for Midori Traveler's Notebooks with colorful covers in sizes: Regular / Standard, Composition, Wide, B6, Hobonichi Weeks, B6 Slim, Passport, A5 / Extra Wide, A6, Pocket / Field Notes, Mini / Micro and Personal.

Unfortunately, at this time, I am no longer accepting requests for custom layouts/spreads that do not already exist in the shop. It will be on a case by case basis if I'm able to do any custom layouts/spreads so I can focus on current orders, but I can do custom requests combining existing notebooks that are already available in my shop. Please message me first before placing your order.

Reach out if you have any questions about existing notebooks or if you have any suggestions for the shop! For more information about me & my shop, see my profile and my shop policies before ordering.

"Are you curious about some of the newer Japanese papers we have in the shop? I've now added a small sample pack of 8 different papers you can try. Test your favorite pens or highlighters to find the paper you like the most! heart_eyes"
"I always love trying out new paper and I'm excited to finally post about Cosmo Air Snow, the bright white version of Cosmo Air Light paper. While this is thicker than other Japanese paper options, it does show ink shading beautifully."
"This year has flown by and we couldn't end the year without a Paper Penguin sale for Black Friday! Save up to 40% off select notebooks or 15% off your entire order using code BLACKFRIDAY all weekend (Nov. 26-28). Thanks for your support!"

Frequently asked questions
Midori Covers

I currently don't sell any Midori leather or fabric covers, but there are many Etsy shops that provide all types of covers in many sizes! Please search on Etsy for covers for the notebooks.

Custom and personalized orders

Unfortunately, at this time, I am no longer accepting complex custom orders. It will be on a case by case basis if I'm able to do any custom orders so I can focus on current orders for the shop. Please contact me if you have any questions about existing notebooks or if you have any suggestions for the shop!

Rush Shipping

At this time, I do not offer a rush service, and orders are made in the order they are received. If you need your order by a certain date, please contact me prior to ordering to determine if I can meet your shipping date. Rush requests after ordering cannot be guaranteed. For expedited USPS shipping, please choose either USPS Priority Mail or USPS Priority Mail Express. For international expedited shipping (excluding USPS) such as FedEx or DHL, please contact me prior to ordering.

- Pocket / Small (4.72 inches tall x 3.19 inches wide)

All the following sizes are available in the shop (some size limitations are based on insert designs - see the description for each listing for more information):

----- Travelers Notebook -----

A5 Slim Size

If you are interested in the A5 Slim size, I would recommend the Wide size option from the shop. The A5 Slim size is listed as 8.3" x 4.9" and the traditional Wide size is 8.25" x 5". Since the sizes are very close (0.05" x 0.1" difference), it would be a great option. When placing an order for the A5 Slim size, if you need it cut exactly at 8.3" x 4.9", please leave a note at checkout.

Alternative Cover Options

If you are purchasing a notebook with Tomoe River, Strathmore, Shiraoi, Onion Skin or any other custom papers and would like an alternative cover added to the notebook instead of the kraft brown or black options, please order the specialty paper notebook and leave a note at checkout which cover you would like me to use from the shop. Please note not all covers are available in the largest size (Extra Wide / A5) when placing your cover request.

Square Corners (No Corner Rounding) on Notebooks

If you are looking for square corners (no corner rounding), I can exclude the corner rounding after cutting the notebooks. Please leave a note at checkout that you want square corners on your notebooks.

Custom Grid, Dots or Lined

Here are all the options I offer by request:
- Dots: 3.7mm, 4mm, 5mm (default)
- Grid: 3.7mm, 4mm, 5mm (default), 6.5mm
- Lined: 5mm, 6mm, 6.5mm (default), 8.7mm college ruled

Please leave a note at checkout that you want a custom size for the grid, dots or lined if preferred. It must be one of the options listed above.
