Where North and South Meet...

In Autumn, nothing is more majestic then the gorgeous white birch trees surrounded by fiery leaves that I grew up surrounded by in New England. In the summer, the aqua waters of the ocean call to my heart. In those few weeks between Summer and Autumn, I feel torn between the oceans and the forest. Since my stationery company was started during those weeks of the year, I aptly named it after both areas of the country I love so much.

Aqua Birch is a fine stationery and paper goods company many years in the making. I'm excited to share a limited number of releases here in my shop.

Thank you for visiting Aqua Birch by Laura James Studio. All listings are ready to ship unless otherwise noted. Bulk orders and wholesale purchases can be made upon request.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment is due immediately. Items will not ship without payment. There are no order cancellations. Once ordered an item must be paid for.

Due to the nature of custom items, there are no cancellations or refunds. If you need to contact me regarding a custom order please use the Etsy convo feature and reference your order number if applicable.

Coupon Policy:
I will gladly accept coupons in my store. Please be aware that all coupons MUST be placed at the time of purchase and cannot be applied to an order after it has been placed. If you have any issues entering a coupon please contact me PRIOR to making your purchase so I can assist you. If you contact me after making a purchase you will be responsible for the entire cost of your order. Refunds and credits will not be given after an order is placed.
***Shipments to APO/FPO Boxes is FREE! Please contact me in advance with your order if needed. Shipping charges to APO/FPO addresses will be refunded prior to processing the order so please go ahead and place your order as needed!***

As the buyer, you are responsible for making sure your shipping address is up to date in Etsy. I DO NOT SHIP TO THE PAYPAL ADDRESS so please be sure to confirm your Etsy shipping address prior to purchase.

I send everything within the United States USPS First Class with delivery confirmation. Priority shipping and insurance are available upon request. Pricing varies based on order size.

Domestic orders generally arrive within 3-5 business days from the time the item is shipped.

Packages marked as delivered are considered delivered and will not be replaced, refunded or otherwise justified in favor of the buyer.

International orders will be shipped via USPS First Class International.
International shipping times vary by destination. It is sort of anyone's guess when an international package will arrive, usually it is within 2 weeks - HOWEVER all countries do things differently in customs and as such a delivery date is not guaranteed.

If an item has been delayed in arrival, please let me know! No refunds or replacements will be made until six weeks of nondelivery from date of shipment has passed. This is because it can take up to six weeks for international orders to arrive at their destination.

We rely on USPS tracking (available on all US shipments) to determine whether a package is lost/ missing. If an order within the USA has not been delivered within 20 days I can offer you a refund or a replacement depending on availability of the product.

Should an item, either domestic or international, arrive damaged, please contact me! I might ask you to send a photo and describe the condition of the item and the packaging so I can be better prepared in the future.

If an item is a gift please let me know as I can offer wrapping as well as a note with your shipment!

As a seller I am not responsible for any fees your country may charge for you to receive the package. Please be aware that some countries charge customs fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds, returns, or exchanges. All items are shipped with a tracking number. Insurance can be purchased separately from shipping, please contact me for information. Please contact the USPS service for any loss or damage done during the shipping process. Aqua Birch and Laura James Studio are not responsible for any damage done during shipping.

Refunds cannot be made for custom orders at any point. If you are concerned when a custom order will ship you must contact me first for a firm date. If you purchase an item prior to contacting me for a completion date, I cannot refund you after the purchase if you're not happy with the estimated completion date.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please only contact me via Etsy's convo feature. Conversations and messages sent via my website or to my email address can take up to one week for response.

I offer wholesale purchases on all items in the store. Items come packaged and ready for the shelves.
