Half Empty Press is me, Gillian Beck! I letterpress in the living room and Print Gocco at the breakfast table in Portland, Oregon, city of dreams. Bitter greetings and breakup cards are my specialty.

I have multiples of most cards--please ask if you want a different quantity than what's listed, or something that has been sold and not relisted. It's likely that I have more or can print more for you. Custom orders are also possible. If you would like to carry Half Empty cards in your store, please contact me about wholesale prices and ordering.


We're not picky about how you pay--we accept Paypal, checks, money orders, or cash in U.S. funds. However, you must either pay or LET US KNOW how you plan to pay within 72 hours (3 days).

If you're using Paypal, please pay within 72 hours. For checks, cash, and money orders, please note in the order how you will be paying; we must receive your payment within two weeks.

If we don't receive payment or hear from you within three days, we will contact you; if we haven't heard back from you or received payment within seven days, the transaction will be canceled and the item will be relisted.

Your items will be sent after we receive your payment; if you pay by check, items will be sent after checks clear, so please figure in this delay when calculating how long it will take for your item to arrive--it usually takes a week for checks to clear.


All orders are sent by USPS--we don't usually go for insurance, delivery confirmation, or priority mail. (If you want these things, we can certainly do them, but we'll have to adjust the shipping costs.) Items ship within one week of receiving payment.

If your item does not arrive within two weeks, contact us. We will send a replacement if possible; for one-of-a-kind items, we will offer you a comparable item or store credit.

For international orders, we use USPS air mail. If you live outside of the USA, your country may add customs charges to your package, and you are responsible for these fees.

Refunds and Exchanges

Once items are shipped, we trust the Post Office to deliver them to you safely; we are not responsible for damage that occurs during shipping. However, if an item arrives in bad condition, please let us know and we will do our best to replace it (we may ask you to send the damaged item back); otherwise, no returns.
