I found Jeaneen to be very helpful - she accommodated my request to personalise the gift, and sent it out promptly. My friend received the gift today, and is delighted with it.

I just love the book planter, my maid of honor is going to love it! Thanks for being so quick to respond to my questions and getting the item shipped so quickly for my deadline!!

About

Where some see trash, I see beauty

It may be hard to believe, but every book in my store was once severely damaged or what I call “overly-loved”. I find books with cracked bindings, missing pages, damaged covers and I bring out the beauty inside. By upcycling them into something useful, I further extend a book's life-cycle, giving it a few more years to be loved and cherished. In signature Upbound style, I bookmark the last pages read with a decorative tassel. I truly hope that I have given a forgotten book a new lease on life; creating a keepsake that brings joy for the years to come.

Welcome to Upbound Books and thank you for your interest!

Determining a book's usefulness is important to me before I seal it's pages forever. I choose only the most battered, unreadable, abused or those destined for a landfill to make my products from. I don't purchase wholesale, instead I purchase from various charity organizations, libraries, small businesses and personal yard sales. I strongly believe that what goes around, comes around and when you purchase an Upbound Book, please know that a portion of that money goes right back to these organizations or into the hands of the people who need help the most, when I restock my shelves.

Thank you again for your interest in Upbound Books.

Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Upbound Books:
I live for making custom items. I can add photos, a custom book cover, objects and little touches that make it your own. I can even make you an Upbound Book from a beloved book that you already own. The possibilities are endless.

The Process:
When you order a custom Upbound Book, you'll receive a questionnaire that will help me craft your piece. As an artist, I like to take some creative liberties with the design. It's part of why I love what I do. If you're not comfortable with this, please do not order custom. But note, if you're ordering custom it's probably because you already like my style so please keep this in mind. Don't worry though, I won't keep you in the dark. You'll receive a design plan and a photo of the book(s) and materials prior to me crafting your book. Once approved, please allow 7-14 days for your Upbound Book to be made.

Deposit & Payment:
A non-refundable 50% deposit is due at the time of ordering. Once the design plan is approved, the remaining balance is due.

Returns on Custom Upbound Books
As an Upbound Book will be made especially for you with your tastes in mind, they're not returnable, refundable or exchangeable.
