A love of books and vintage children's art

My designs come from my personal collection of vintage books from the 1920's, most of which belonged to my grandparents. I cherished many of the books when I was a child, and I am so happy to bring these gorgeous illustrations to life again!

Creating each bookplate design is often a lot of work: since my old books are well-loved, there is quite a bit of repairing to do. Each vintage illustration is carefully scanned, cleaned, and brightened up... then sometimes completely redesigned to fit a bookplate format. The end product is what you see in my shop: beautiful vintage designs, waiting for your books!

*Turnaround

Our turnaround on personalized bookplates is very quick: we ship within 2-4 days of an order. That being said, please let us know if you are in a rush so that we can push your order ahead of the queue. We also offer Priority and Express Shipping at checkout.

*Gift Notes

If you're mailing items directly to someone, let us know in the "notes to seller" section upon checkout. We are happy to include a cute Oiseaux gift card with a note from you.

*Adhesives/Paper

We print our bookplates on thick, bright, high-quality paper with gorgeous, vivid inks for superior color and image reproduction. We like to recommend acid-free glue sticks for placing our bookplates into your books: they are inexpensive, easy-to-use, and safe with all papers. You can find acid-free glue sticks online and in most drug stores or supermarkets; some popular brands are Avery, OfficeWorks, Elmer's and Uhu.

Sometimes we get asked if we print our bookplates on peel-and-stick paper: we don't. We've tried every brand of adhesive back paper and they all pale in comparison to our gorgeous paper. We are *SUPER* picky about print quality, and we want our products to look gorgeous... so we use the very, very good stuff.

Payment
We accept all major credit cards through Etsy or through Paypal.

Customs, duties and/or taxes incurred on orders shipped outside of the US are the responsibility of the customer. I know this seems obvious, but please do not ask us to enter false information on US Customs forms, it is against the law.
Shipping
COVID UPDATE: The USPS is doing an excellent job during these crazy times, but is still experiencing occasional delays. If your order needs to arrive quickly, please choose expedient shipping to ensure that it does. I always ship on time (and often early), but I'm not a shipping company and I have to rely on others to get my products to you. I will always do my best to track down a late package, but sometimes patience is required. Thank you for understanding.

I always ship to the address entered on your Etsy order form, even if you are paying through Paypal. I package bookplates carefully to prevent bending. Prints are packaged in a cellophane sleeve and mailed in a sturdy, stay-flat mailer. I use recycled packing materials and boxes whenever possible when shipping large orders or larger items like panel prints.

Domestic orders ship USPS first class with tracking; Priority Shipping and overnight Express Shipping are also available through a drop-down menu. International orders ship Airmail, first class.
