LZPENCILS

Announcement    LZPENCILS has been featured in Seventeen magazine, BuzzFeed, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brit + Co., and the instagrams of Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), Ryan Seacrest (American Idol; Live with Kelly and Ryan); Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend); Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia); Retta (Parks and Recreation); and Anna Faris (Unqualified podcast) to name a few.

I set all vintage type by hand and lovingly hand-press each and every pencil. Your purchase helps me pay my student loans and donate pencils to at-risk youth and under-served women. With your help, I've donated thousands of pencils to the LA Youth Network, the Downtown Women's Center, and the Dream Builder's Project LA. I still owe thousands in student loans thanks to my doctorate in social psychology.

When I'm not making writing utensils, I write TV pilots and adapted the award-winning coming-of-age memoir "Stealing Buddha's Dinner" into a screenplay (available upon request).

My TV pilot "Call Girls" is based on my brief telemarketing career. You can read the first 9 pages in the listing at my Etsy shop. Let me know what you think and if you can help me get representation!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
If you need to return your pencils, please message me. Refunds are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Unfortunately I'm unable to refund shipping for pencil set returns. Pencils are shipped with insurance for your protection. Insurance claims for lost U.S. domestic orders cannot be filed until 20 days after shipment; 40 days for international orders. Please wait 20 days (40 days for international) before messaging about a lost pencil set order so I can help get you a refund or replacement. Thanks for your cooperation.
Payment
I accept PayPal, credit cards and Etsy gift cards as forms of payment. Please make sure your shipping address associated with your Etsy account is correct when placing your order, or provide your updated address in the "Notes to Seller" area during checkout. Changes in shipping addresses cannot be made after an order is placed, unless you convo me immediately. By purchasing my pencils, you accept and agree to my pencil shop's policies.

Shipping
SHIPPING ADDRESSES: please be sure your shipping address is correct at the time you place your order. Whether you're purchasing an item for yourself or as a gift, please be sure the recipient's shipping address is correct when placing your order. If you realize you've entered your shipping address or a gift recipient's shipping address incorrectly after checkout, please notify me IMMEDIATELY. If your item has not yet shipped, I will likely be able to edit the shipping address for you on my end. Unfortunately, I'm unable to re-ship (at my cost) items that have been returned to my pencil shop due to invalid shipping addresses. When an item is returned to me for customer errors in shipping addresses, the customer can either a) receive a refund for their item (minus the shipping fees), or b) choose to re-ship the item to a valid shipping address at the customer's cost. Unfortunately, shipping fees are non-refundable.

ORDER PROCESSING TIME:
On average, orders are processed within 5-7 business days unless otherwise stated in the listing. Orders are processed in the order they are received. Processing times may vary depending on the type of pencil set you order and how busy my pencil shop is. Business days include Monday-Friday, excluding holidays.

DOMESTIC (U.S.) SHIPPING TIME:
Shipping is through standard USPS First Class Mail and may take 4-7 business days to be delivered once shipped. LZPENCILS is not responsible for USPS post office delays once I hand over your package to USPS. If you need your pencils sooner than estimated, please convo me before placing your order. After an order is placed, I cannot guarantee it will arrive by your anticipated date. Shipping upgrades are available at checkout if you'd like to expedite your pencils on your end (for an additional charge).

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
Please allow 2 to 8 weeks for delivery using standard shipping, sometimes even longer. I'm unable to estimate delays in customs processing and cannot issue a refund for pencils whose delivery has been delayed due to your country's postal carrier and/or customs. Tracking numbers on international orders may not be updated once they leave the U.S., and unfortunately tracking numbers sometimes track a package's transit within the U.S. only. Please be patient if you're ordering pencils from outside the U.S. and be willing to wait 2-8 weeks (or more) for their arrival. **International buyers are responsible for all VAT, import fees, and/or taxes that are requested of you by your country.** For more info, please see: www.dutycalculator.com/ I value your business and am delighted that people all over the world love my pencils!
