Everything you see in the example images is an included option for any book or sign, but if you would like something engraved that you don't see, you can go to the add-ons section and add a custom graphic to your order. Be sure to include a high resolution image of what you would like engraved or a description of what you would like. Once your order is processed you'll receive a few mockups to confirm your engraving design - this is where it can bee tweaked to perfection.

Shop Story

Rustic Engravings is a handcrafted wood and leather shop focused on producing quality Canadian made restaurant and wedding guest books, family and wedding photo albums, baby books, artist sketchbooks and portfolios, personalized paddles, travel journals, poetry books and more. Each piece has its own unique character and is completely customizable. Everything at Rustic Engravings can be personalized and altered to suit your specific need.

My passion has always been creating artwork of all kinds. Since I was a child I have loved to create personal things for people with sentimental value. In the early 2000s I began selling original artwork and prints online and in 2014 I began experimenting with laser engraving. I found engraving to be a fun and exciting new extension of my artwork and I decided to start this shop so I can share my engravings with more than just the people in my community.

Everything I create is handcrafted in my home. For my wooden books I carefully select each piece of wood, choosing only the pieces with the most interesting grain and texture. I hand cut and sand each piece of wood adding grooves around the edges to give each piece character.Then, I design the engraving (with your help) and laser engrave the wood. The engraving can be the most challenging part of each project but it is always the most fun! Once the wood has been engraved, it is re-sanded and several layers of stain and finish are applied for a darker more rustic look. I carefully and artfully stain my wood using a layering technique that I came up with to give each piece of wood its own unique rustic character. Staining can take 3 to 7 days to complete. Paint is added to some areas to enhance the rustic appearance. Metal embellishments are screwed, glued, and hammered on. Genuine cowhide leather pieces are molded, rubbed with mink oil to bring out a nice leathery smell, and then made into the spine of the book. Finally, everything is assembled. This process can take anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks to complete but the final result is a completely unique piece of artwork.

Returns and exchange details
Since the items sold in my store are custom made to order art pieces, no returns will be accepted under any circumstances. These pieces are custom made usable artwork and I check everything before I send it out and I will only ship products that meet my high standards of quality.

Since all items are made to order, wood grain will differ from the example image but I always try to select wood with an interesting grain pattern so each book will have character. Note that creative liberties are taken in the creation of each piece. The coloring and texture of your piece will vary from the original listing as well as from the mockup design. When you are purchasing one of my pieces, you are ordering a unique, customized, made-to-order art piece. If your book contains screws, please note that screw color may also vary. Screws may be black or brass depending on what I have in stock. Screw color is not guaranteed but if you prefer a specific color please send me a message and I will try to accommodate your request.

I can only refund items that are damaged during shipping if you, the recipient, open the package with the mail carrier present and initiate a damage claim through the mail carrier. I can issue a refund once that claim has been resolved.

Please be aware of your country's import laws. Rustic Engravings will not issue a refund for any package that is held at the boarder due to import restrictions. Note that as of 2019 USA import laws have become more strict. All products sold by Rustic Engravings comply with USA import regulations however, you may be required to fill out an additional customs form for importing wooden products to the USA which can delay your package. If you are concerned about a delay, please contact me as soon as possible.
Payment
Paypal and Etsy direct are the preferred methods of payment. Currently I do not accept money orders.

Everything in my shop is made in, and ship from, Canada. If you are having your item shipped outside of Canada, please be aware of the import duties that may be charged to you by your country. I will not cover these charges under any circumstances.

Please complete your payment as soon as possible. I will not start the creation process on your project until payment has been processed and we have communicated details about your project. If I do not receive payment and communication within one week of the order being placed, I will cancel the order.
Shipping
All orders will be shipped to your Etsy Address. If you would like to arrange for delivery to another address, please contact me to make arrangements.

Please provide a contact phone number with your order. This number will only be used by the courier delivering your package in case of difficulty delivering your package. The courier will only guarantee delivery times if a contact number has been provided.

Since everything I create is made to order and each project can take several weeks to complete, creation + shipping time should be taken into consideration if you need your order by a certain date. If you require rush delivery on an item, please contact me to make arrangements (an additional fee may apply).

Contact me to upgrade your shipping to Priority or Express and tracking.

International shipments outside of Canada and the US are shipped with International Parcel - Surface service and can take up to 3 months to be delivered depending on the country you are in. Larger items may also incur additional shipping fees which will be noted before your project is started. If you need to receive your order quickly you can upgrade the shipping on your package by requesting a shipping upgrade in addition to priority processing.

Shipments to Canada and the US using standard ground shipping typically take 1-10 business days to arrive at their destination. Upgrades to express and overnight shipping services are available (additional fees apply). A different courier and service from the one you selected may be used depending on couriers' history of delivering packages safely and on time to your area - Rustic Engravings will make this call and may contact you if a different shipping method from the one you chose is recommended.

All customs fees will be paid by buyer. If your item is not picked up from the post office or it has an incorrect address, and it is sent back to me as a result, a second shipping fee will be charged to send your package a second time.

Although Rustic Engravings does ship to the US, there may be an additional charge for shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico. Also, if you live in an extremely rural area, there is a very small chance that I will not be able to ship to you or there will be an additional fee to cover the extra postage. If you live in the absolute middle of nowhere and you think shipping to your address may incur additional fees, send me a message and I will double check for you. I will not add on any fees without your permission.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to work with you to create a custom order. I can also take bulk orders.

Include a description of the text/engraving you would like. Everything you see in the example images is an included option for any book or sign, but if you would like something engraved that you don't see, you can go to the add-ons section and add a custom graphic to your order. Be sure to include a high resolution image of what you would like engraved or a description of what you would like. Once your order is processed you'll receive a few mockups to confirm your engraving design - this is where it can bee tweaked to perfection.

What is the difference between the pages?

Detailed descriptions and photos are given in each listing as well as recommendations for certain projects. Please see listings for details.

Can I add pages to my book later on?

No. Book spines are made to a precise size to fit the exact number of pages giving these pieces a tight custom-made feel – This does, however, mean that pages cannot be added or removed later on.

Can I speed up processing and get this quickly?

Yes. There are a few premade pieces available each month for quick creation. These are listed in the add-ons section of the shop under "priority order". They are limited and they are only available until they sell out.

Do you add my photos to my book?

No. All books created here are blank. You can fill your piece however you like when you receive it.
