Storeyshop - Behind The Scenes

Hello, I'm Helen and I live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK. I love making Storeyshop goodies as well freelancing as a designer and paper engineer. Spending my days surrounded by piles of card and paper, with scalpel in hand and a big list of orders to carefully hand cut, is my perfect job!

After gaining my degree in Graphic Design from Bath School of Art in 2003, I worked for a couple of different design companies. I always dreamed of working for myself though, moving away from the computer and of being more 'hands-on' with my creating.

My last 'proper' full-time job as Senior Designer on 'Company' magazine (a national UK womens magazine) was based in central London. I loved it but, when I moved to rural Northumberland to settle down with my husband (and elderly chinchilla), I decided to go for it and open Storeyshop to see if I could paper cut for a living. I haven't looked back!

Storeyshop was always destined to come about one day as there is only so much room in one house for handmade goodies and only so many hand cut cards you can scalpel for your friends and relatives!

***** I've just started working again after some maternity leave to meet and get to know my first baby. Please bear with me as I get back in to the swing of things as life is amazing but very different now! *******

As you can probably see from my shop, apart from being handmade, all Storeyshop items can be personalised too. Cards can have the message you really want and show the recipient that it was intended especially and only for them.

To see what I'm up to day to day, be the first to sneak peek new designs and projects, meet my baby boy, Ted, and Seb (my pet chinchilla I have had since I was 10 years old!) and to keep up with my top shopping finds, head over to my blog:

Buyers in the UK can pay by cheque or postal order in GBP if you would prefer but please contact me first. Thank you
Please note that Storeyshop is based in the United Kingdom.

I currently post orders once a week, sometimes more often. You can keep up to date with your order by logging in to your Etsy account. I will do my best to keep you up to date with your order(s) but please also keep an eye on your invoice for confirmation of shipping too.

LASERCUT ORDERS - Please bear in mind that orders need to be made even if the outer card or poster is lasercut and in stock.

MADE TO ORDER - Personalised and other orders which are hand cut to order will be made as quickly as possible but I often have a waiting list of around a week, sometimes longer at busy times. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU NEED YOUR ORDER BY, ESPECIALLY IF IT IS URGENT! That way I can do my best to plan it around other orders and refund if necessary rather than fail to meet your deadline. I don't want to disappoint anyone :)

I am in the UK. Please bear this in mind when ordering. Shipping time estimations are listed below (all shipping times are estimated to the best of my knowledge) and these times are from when the item has been made and posted:

--- Items within the UK will be posted first class and should take 1-3 days to arrive. Please bear in mind that they may take longer in some cases though.

--- Items posted within Europe should take around a week. They may only take a couple of days though or up to 2 weeks.

--- Other international shipping destinations will take 1-2 weeks. Maybe longer due to location or due to postal delays (please see note below).

Feel free to send me a message if you need an item by a certain date.

Please note that I do my absolute best to get items to you as quickly as I can. Once the items are packed up and posted, though, I can't control how long they take to reach you. There's very rarely a problem and I'll always do my best to help if there is.

--- CANADA: Due to the postal strikes recently being lifted I am able to ship items to Canada again. Please allow for delays due to backlogs though and please check back for updates. More info here:
--- USA: The situation with mail being delayed upon entering the United States, due to heightened security checks, has improved now but please bear in mind that some parcels may still be delayed. Please see this link for more details (scroll down to section 8 for US):

Purchases will be packaged lovingly in new paper or bags but the outer packaging may be recycled where possible. Trying to do my bit! Let me know if you'd prefer all new packaging.

All purchases are nicely wrapped/packaged to keep them in perfect condition. A gift card with your own message can be added to your order and the gift sent straight to the recipient at no extra cost if you would like -please request this when you order. This is especially handy if you are overseas and would like your purchase shipped to someone in the UK.

For international shipping, customs forms, where required, will be marked as being 'merchandise' so no one gets into any trouble with taxes or customs. There will also be a basic description of the contents of the package on the outside for the same reason. Please provide an alternative address to ship to if you don't want a certain someone to find out what you have ordered!
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds will be made if items are returned in their original condition but will not include buyers postage costs. If an item or order has been made especially for you but is not personalised, I may refund less a small charge for doing the commission. If I have made a personalised order for you that cannot be resold, a refund will not be possible.

Please try to be as clear as possible as to what you would like for your card, especially if you have something quite specific in mind. I make all cards to the absolute best of my ability and aim to make each to be just as requested and to look as good as possible. If you want to leave the design and/or colours choices to me to decide, as I make your card, that is absolutely fine - just let me know.
Additional policies and FAQs
All Storeyshop items are lovingly made in a smoke- and pet-free home.
