ABOUT PLAID FROG PRESS

We’re Peg Cheng and Marcus Donner, the team behind Plaid Frog Press, a Taiwanese-Mexican-German-American-owned publishing company based in Seattle, Washington.

Our company is named after our pal Froggy (who's also our CFO: Chief Frog Officer) and our mottos are READ GOOD STUFF and WRITE GOOD STUFF.

We create our books, zines, cards, and stickers in our cozy home studio in Seattle. We love all the various parts of the publishing process from creating the product, designing it, printing it, and shipping it with the help of great companies like Mixam in Illinois, Sticker Mule in New York, and EcoEnclose in Colorado. All of our stuff is printed in the USA and shipped to you in eco-friendly, recyclable materials.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we're trying to stay positive by writing, drawing, and photographing beautiful things. Makers gotta make and making stuff helps us feel better. We're so looking forward to the day when we can safely meet you in-person at a zine festival. If you want to know when we'll be tabling at zine fests, follow us on social media (see links below) or subscribe to Peg's newsletter at https//www.pegcheng.com/contact.

If you like our stuff, please FAVORITE our shop and WRITE A REVIEW. Every review is like GOLD to us and every kind word keeps us going. Thank you for your support!

If you have any questions or comments, email us at: books {at} plaidfrogpress {dot} com. We'd love to hear from you!

Love,
Peg + Marcus + Froggy

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

We don't offer gift wrapping but if you're ordering a gift for someone, we're happy to decorate the shipping envelope or box with cute stickers and can also enclose a personalized note for your recipient. Just let us know what you'd like us to write in the NOTES box at checkout.

Do you offer USPS tracking of my order?

Yes, we do. But please be aware that some items are too small or light to qualify for USPS tracking, so on some orders we'll only be able to tell you the date it shipped.

Why does it cost so much to ship to countries outside of the U.S.?

We're bummed about this too, especially in regards to our books. Please know that we charge what the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) charges, and sadly, these prices are shockingly high. We've checked with FedEx, UPS, and DHL and they charge even more so we're sticking with USPS.

Because our zines and stickers are light and flexible, they can be sent at international "letter" rates which makes shipping them more affordable.

We're creating ebook versions of all our printed books so that customers residing outside of the U.S. can read our books at an affordable price.

If you know of ways to ship internationally at cheaper rates, contact us at books {at} plaidfrogpress.com. Thank you!

I have more questions after reading your policies.

We're open to answering any and all questions. Email us at: books {at} plaidfrogpress.com.
