Announcement   Colors and art are the vitamins of your home." Joannes Van Laer

Vintage and antique paper ephemera: maps, prints, chromolithographs and other quirky finds that catch my eye.

ABOUT POSTAGE: Postage fees include the cost of supplies. I recycle as much as I can to keep costs down. I always ship flat items between multiple pieces of cardboard for the BEST chance of arriving safely. Stay-flat mailers don't always stay flat. The cardboard bumps up the price, but it's a necessary evil.

SHIPPING INFO: I work full time. Etsy is a fun sideline for me. I ship on my day off each week, which is often on Saturday. I also ship during the week if my schedule permits. I all depends on my hectic work schedule. Please convo me if your purchase is time sensitive. We can work it out.

SHIPPING METHOD & TIME FRAME: I ship First class mail via the USPS. The vast majority of the time packages arrive within a week of shipping. However, sometimes packages are delayed, especially during the Christmas holiday period. Please contact me if your package has not arrived in 14 days. I will begin a trace on the package at that time. The USPS does not consider a package lost for 30 days past the ship date and that is also my time frame. I will not refund for a lost package before the 30th day because I can't claim it's lost with the post office prior to the 30th day.

In my experience, most of the time a package is delayed rather than lost and it is eventually delivered. After the USPS time frame (30 days) passes and you have not received your package I will refund.

Please read my shop policies. Thank you.

Welcome to SaturatedColor. Thank you for taking the time to stop by! Please read our shop policies before making any purchases. Please contact us with any questions or comments. We’re always open to thoughts and suggestions, and aside from that, we truly love to get to know our customers…so please write even if all you want to say is hello.

We hope you enjoy looking around in our fun eclectic shop. It gives us great pleasure to find and offer these vintage items to you. Vintage items have been around a while and of course, that’s precisely why we love them. They are loaded with history, charm and workmanship that is foreign to today’s market. But, they are rarely mint or perfect and that is understood by both buyer and seller. We do our very best to describe each item fully and support our description with lots of photos, but our items are vintage items. If you should you have any questions about any item, please don’t hesitate to convo me. I will tell you what I know.

In order to see the best version of our shop, be sure to view it in “gallery mode.” You can then double-click items for a super-sized view.

Be first so view our latest listings by subscribing to our shop feeds now.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
PAYPAL PREFERRED: Paypal is the preferred method of payment because it’s so quick and allows you to receive your item sooner. Did you know you can pay through Paypal simply using your credit card? If you absolutely can't work with Paypal, I 'm happy to take a money order or cashier's check.
Shipping
** We will automatically send your order to the address listed on your Etsy account. If you are paying with Paypal, please make sure your address on your paypal account is correct. If you need a change to be made to the mailing address, please let us know when you purchase your items.**

All vintage items are sold only "as is" but will be carefully packaged so they arrive to you in the same condition in which they leave me. If you have any concerns about the condition of any vintage items, please feel free to convo me and I'll be happy to answer your questions.

Books and heavy paper are shipped as media mail.

Items that are too heavy to be shipped via first-class mail are either sent priority or parcel post. Parcel post take a day or two longer, but it is often (not always) more cost effective. So if priority is just a few pennies more than parcel post, we'll always choose priority.

We utitlize flat-rate priority shipping as often as it is cost-effective for you.All items are carefully wrapped and secured with the proper packing supplies (heavy boards for paper, peanuts and bubble wrap). I always recycle packing supplies, but I refuse to re-use food containers. I just have to draw the line at that. So, your antique print will not be placed between the sides of my old box of Raisin Bran or frozen pizza.

Lastly, if you prefer an upgrade on shipping (priority mail or express mail), it’s definitely available. You just have to let us know so we can adjust the amount you owe for shipping.

PLEASE NOTE: Shipping prices include delivery confirmation, but do not include insurance. I believe it’s important to have insurance but I don't like it to be forced on me when I buy. Therefore, I won't force it on anyone either. It is up to you to let me know if you’d like insurance so I can adjust the amount owed for your purchase.

Shipping is normally done on Monday or Tuesday and Friday. That said, my schedule outside of etsy frequently changes so this is not always a certainty. Please let me know if your purchase is time sensitive and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.get it out as soon as possible.

We will do our very best to help you track down and locate lost or late mail or file an insurance claim for damaged mail if applicable. But, of course, once a package leaves our hands (with proper delivery confirmation and insurance if purchased), we are then at the mercy of the USA / Canadian / International postal services, the unknown factors relating to where you live and that well-known epigram: Murphy’s Law. Lost mail is not common, but it does happen. That is why we included delivery confirmation on all packages & highly recomment you purchase insurance.
Refunds and Exchanges
RETURNS / REFUNDS: As of 2/3/2012 all sales are final. I no longer accept returns, including returns for exchange. I"ve had three returns for exchange in the past month and none of the three were delivered in the same condition in which they were sent. This was due to the buyer failing to package the items safely and they were damaged on their way back to me. We do everything in our power to get your order to you safely.

Should there be an error on our part that results in you not receiving the package you paid for, we will cheerfully refund you full cost, including shipping and insurance (assuming you purchased it).
