moonmothpress' Shop Announcement

Welcome to Moon Moth Press -- handmade books, cards, prints, bookplates, and bookmarks -- offering renewed life to discarded beauty.

This is what happens when we combine our love of old books and the layering of ephemera and decorative papers: one-of-a-kind cards for all occasions. They're not just cards ... they're all little works of art suitable for framing! If you are wondering what happens to the covers after we've gutted the books, check out our "resurrected" journals, albums, and ledgers made from the vintage decorative book covers.

Feel free to contact us for any reason: questions about items, special or custom orders, gift certificates ... or just looking to make a new acquaintance. Please visit our profile and shop policies page for more information.

moonmothpress' Shop Policies



We use high-quality, deckle-edged Strathmore cards and envelopes for our products. You can find cheaper stock, but you can't find better stock. Large cards measure 5 inches by 6 7/8 inches (with matching envelopes 5 ¼ inches by 7 ¼ inches). Small cards measure 3 ½ inches by 5 1/8 inches (with matching envelopes 3 5/8 inches by 5 ¼ inches).


We accept paypal payment only. Please complete the payment process within 24 hours of checkout.

Buy multiple cards and save on both shipping and the price of each card: four of our larger $6 cards for only $20 or three of our smaller $4 cards for $10 (plus shipping & handling). You may wait for our adjusted invoice when purchasing multiple cards ... or we will refund you the discount if you have already paid.


Domestic and international shipping policies for our cards and bookplates appear within the listings.

We ship our books priority mail for domestic orders. We'll happily ship our books anywhere, but we generally only list shipping prices within the United States. Because prices can vary substantially depending upon where you are, we don't what to second guess and charge too much for shipping. If you are interested in one of our books, please ask for shipping options and prices.

Refunds and Exchanges

In general, our one-of-a-kind items are not eligible for refunds or exchanges. But do please contact us if you are unhappy about your purchases and we'll try to make it right!

Additional Policies and FAQs

If one of our cards isn't quite right for you -- it needs a scrap of this, a bit of that -- let us know and we can make additions. [One recent customer wanted a winged gold heart on a card -- no problem!]

Or if you'd like multiple cards with the same image, we can scan a collage and make cards with the prints.

A few of our art papers do include flower petals or other organic materials. Some countries have restrictions about importing such items.
