Announcement   Get Organized. What makes my boards different is their function, size and ability to hold A LOT of mail and paperwork. This is because the pockets are rectangular and deep. I am a professional organizer and THIS is what is necessary to organize a family. Sure, you can pretend that you're going to clear out the pockets and file every few days, but more likely you will not.

Yes-many of the other boards look nice, but they simply will not hold enough mail. If you see something you like in another shop (like crown molding, shelves, special routered edges or color), I can do all that - just ask please.

Yes-my price point is higher. That is because my product tends to be much larger and requires a lot more material. And because of this, it needs to be built in a heavy-duty fashion. Put a system in place that allows ONE main location for important items, mail, reminder notes, and keys.

I personally build each board in my shop.

Order one of the boards from my listings or design a custom board with me for your home. We can model it after another board in my shop, with changes... or do something completely new!

Ask for reduced shipping rates if you are closer to the east coast (I am in PA). My shipping rates are based on the furthest locations from me in the US. They are NOT inflated. My boards are simply larger and cost more to ship. You can go to fedex and see for yourself. Thank you for visiting my etsy shop!

My sister in law loved the piece as her gift for Christmas. A little slow to ship, but otherwise easy to work with.

A recent customer requested this antiqued white frame. What other color frames do you think would look good?

About

I create hand-made products to help you get organized.

Life is big and all the pieces are small. As a professional organizer, the biggest (small)problem and frustration that clients had was paperwork and mail covering their counter tops and dinner table. Additionally, misplaced keys and reminder notes were lost in the shuffle. And many people don't function well using filing cabinets (out of sight; out of mind). The solution: a big board with lots of deep pockets, all painted in chalkboard paint, and outfitted with plenty of key hooks. It would act as a home organization station.

Since that first board (The Large), many custom options are available, such as pocket placement and size, cork, magnetic paint, sheet metal magnetic, frame, shelf, chalk ledge, and mirror. I specialize in creating custom finishes such as antiqued/distressed and color matching an aspect of your home (such as your kitchen cabinets or woodwork).

I want you to see that it's handmade. I don't strive for precision, in the strictest sense, because I have no wish to mimic a machine. I will do less at times, to shun the faked perfection of the world. And perhappenstance, we find something that is better than it would have been otherwise - if we tried to imagine what people want.

Additional policies and FAQs
The add-on listings are for additional magazine and mail pockets that I will attach to your mail organizer before shipping, or that you can attach to a mail organizer you have already purchased and received from my shop. Pocket add-ons do not function on their own because they do not have a back. If you would still like to purchase a mail pocket or magazine pocket, you can contact me for a listing.
