Funny, Irreverent, Often Thoughtful, Cards & Prints
I am a storyteller, whether in words or images. For years I have been writing down little stories that make me laugh, but which seemed to serve no other purpose. And then it occurred to me - those stories would make great "just because" cards, you know, those cards you send to friends just to make them smile? To keep the connection fresh? And Madaket Lane Print & Paper was born.
While you'll find some cringe-worthy stories here - especially in my "Let's Pretend" line, you'll also find one that make you think (my "Taken Literally" line), that warm your heart (see the "Complications" line), or that honor a noun (person, place or thing) simply by recognizing it.
My cards are printed on 100% post-consumer card stock using archival inks (which stay fresh with proper care for over 100 years), and my envelopes are made from either 100% (white) or 30% (colored) recycled paper. My prints are printed on heavy archival paper (240 gsm) with a luster finish using archival inks.
Cards and prints are individually packaged in clear protective sleeves and mailed in heavy cardboard envelopes.

I cannot imagine a day not creating...something. Some of my first memories are of coloring, of being annoyed that my big sister insisted that I had to keep the colors within the lines. Even then I did not want to be confined.
MY OTHER SHOPS:
I have several other shops on Etsy. The reason for this is that each shop features items that do not necessarily play nicely with the items of the other shops. I have tried to convince them that they can all get along but, when I put them together, the parts become less than the whole. Basically, they do not tell the same story.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept payments by Paypal, credit cards, money orders and personal checks. If you pay via a check or money order, your items will ship when payment clears.
HOW DO I PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD?
Etsy process credit card payment through Paypal. You DO NOT need a Paypal account to pay by credit card. When you check out, click "Pay," then click on the "Don't Have a Paypal Account?" link to go to the credit card processing page. Paypal offers industry-leading security measures and buyer protection.
HOW DO I APPLY A COUPON CODE?
If you have a promo or coupon code, enter it on the cart page, right before you check out. Simply click on the blue text located right above the item total (and below the credit card images), and enter the code. If you have any questions, please contact me.
I currently use the USPS. Express Mail service available on request.
HOW ARE MY ITEMS SHIPPED?
All of my prints, photographs and postcards are placed against a thick piece of backing board, packaged in a clear, protective sleeve and placed in sturdy photo mailer. Some larger prints are rolled safely and placed in a tube.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?
I print and process all orders upon receipt and allow for an extra 24 hours drying time before packaging orders. In most cases, orders are shipped within 48 business hours (no weekends or US holidays). Domestic (US) orders usually arrive within 5-7 business days. International orders can take up to 2-3 weeks depending on customs. Custom orders are made on demand and will take longer.
CAN I GET MY ITEM FASTER?
Absolutely. If you'd like to upgrade to a faster service (usually Express Mail), just let me know via email or convo and I will send you an invoice for the difference.
CAN I TRACK MY PACKAGE?
Yes. You will receive a shipping notification and tracking number as soon as your order ships. The notification is sent to your paypal address.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PRINTS ARE LOST OR DAMAGED?
If you think your order is lost in the mail, first check the tracking details. If the package is in transit, the tracking information should indicate an expected delivery date. If the tracking information indicates the package has delivered but you have not received it, contact me so that I can assess the situation further.
If your print arrives damaged, snap a photograph, email it to me and I will be happy to replace it.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to provide a full refund or exchange for goods in their original condition provided you contact me within 15 days or purchasing.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to work with brick and mortar retailers, and in some cases with online retailers. Please contact me at MadaketLanePublishers [at] comcast.net.
