Vintage Inspired ~ Modern Designed ~ Dictionary Art - Melamine Plates & Platters

Welcome to The Rekindled Page!

Let me share a little about me and my Etsy story and give you the low down on how my shop operates.

I started my shop, The Rekindled Page, 8 years ago in a means to offer affordable, trendy art prints to everyone. Using Vintage Dictionary Book Pages that were bound for the trash and turning them into gorgeous prints I was able to do this. My prints are a gift that keeps on giving! I was constantly making prints for friends and family and thought why not offer them in a shop. Etsy is a great place to offer my prints! Now I am extending my offerings to include Melamine Plates/Platters, Shower Curtains, and Pillows! You will find many of my plates/platters, shower curtains, and pillows are based off of my already popular Dictionary Print designs! That means you can have BOTH! :)

I had been saving vintage illustrations for years. I am always on the hunt for new images that I can turn into beautiful designs. How do I do that you ask? It is not easy. I spend hours upon hours finding or purchasing images. The Vintage illustrations I find are usually in black and white and many are 'fuzzy' due to their age. Kinda like Me! :)

I spend a great deal of my time using Photoshop, and scanning in vintage images, picking designs I want to use and then reworking them by cleaning them up. With old images you have to give them a MASSIVE tune up before they are print or plate ready. One tiny black dot in the wrong will drive you crazy, so I clean them up. I also spend weekends searching for new OLD books to print my designs on. For printing my Vintage Dictionary Prints I use a high end Lexmark printer that makes sure your prints have VIVID, BRIGHT colors! No washed out looking Prints here. I do all of my creating and printing in my rolling home studio. You heard right, I said rolling home studio! My husbands position requires a lot of travel so we left our forever home in upper Alabama behind for now and we are traveling the United States in our RV! Talk about an adventure! And we love it. So, I work from the road and it works great. Moving to new locations every 8-12 months allows me stay energized and creative.

Now let me tell you about how my new plates/platters, shower curtains, and pillows are created. They are first a design in my head or an image I purchased the rights to. From there, if it is a vintage illustration, I start the clean up process. After that is is all about hours of design. I must find the perfect background, the perfect colors, the perfect font, the perfect placement... I think you get my point. :) It is actually very labor intensive but it is a true labor of LOVE and I enjoy it. After I have completed ALL of the above steps, I usually re-do it. LOL... No really. I design and redesign and move flowers and change my mind about colors I bet 2000 times a day! Once the design is birthed in my studio on wheels I then make it perfect for its final destination which is my 3rd party manufacturer. They are located in the good old USA. Getting it to them requires me to put it in a format my manufacture can work off of. From there I submit the design template to the manufacture for approval. They have to make sure my creative plating is going work in their machines. :) After I get approval I order a sample of that design to check colors and design placement. Sometimes it is winner, winner, chicken dinner and other times I have to start from scratch...

When you place a plates/platters, shower curtains, or pillow order with me I contact my manufacturer with all the necessary order information, and the design, so they can manufacture your custom order. Turn around time can take up to 2 weeks but it really should be much sooner. I realize that is a wait and in order to shorten shipping times and save shipping fees, my manufacturer kindly ships my plates/platters, shower curtains, and pillows directly to my customers. Otherwise I would have to wait to receive them and then re-ship them on to you. This way you get your goodies quicker and cheaper!

Thanks for taking a look at my "about" page! I hope you peek inside my shop, grab a cup of tea and stay a while...

Also, if you do not add a FREE PRINT URL you will only receive what you ordered and paid for. In order to offer this great deal I have to work it this way in order to keep orders straight during this busy holiday season.

Lastly check your receipt after you place your order and make sure you see the url to your free print.

Additional policies and FAQs
Faqs -

1 - On my print sale listings, you MUST include the URL's at the time you order. Please place them in the "note to seller" box you will see at checkout. Do NOT send a description. It MUST be the URL. I have too many similar prints to take a description.

** Important**
For buy 2 get 1 free sales please review your receipt. If you CANNOT see your Free print URL (not a description) posted under "note to seller", then neither can I. I get convos saying that I did not receive my FREE print and when we look, a free URL was never listed. Please note that if no url is listed I will ONLY be sending what I see on your order receipt. I cannot send one after the fact via a convo. If you forgot to list it I will have to cancel and have you reorder including it. I need you to review your order and make sure it posted. I want you to have your bogo print but unfortunately I do not have the time to write everyone who does not include one. Thanks!

2 - Please note that I CANNOT take your URL's or map customization info via convo, after you have placed your order. It must be supplied with your actual order. If not I will have to cancel your order and have you reorder and include the info I need.

3 - During the Holiday period I am not taking any custom orders or color changes. I am just too busy to do so but would love to help you in January.

4 - Please double check your address BEFORE ordering. It cannot be changed after the fact via a convo. If you put the wrong address I can cancel your order and allow you to reorder.

5 - You cannot use a coupon with a bogo buy.

Computer Monitors

Every monitor will show different colors. Yours will be different than mine. I do keep mine calibrated. What you see online via mobile device, or computer will vary from one device or monitor to another. Since it is not a dress and you can't try it on in person :) I just want you to realize that some colors in REAL LIFE may be a little different that what you see online. Unfortunately there is no remedy for this problem. This certainly applies to shower curtains, towels, plates.

Also, re: my vintage dictionary prints... The vintage books I print on is over 100 years old. Some pages have a more yellow tint than others. That is due to the pages being so old. The vintage pages is what makes the prints so gorgeous! :)
