Really cute. I didn't realize it wasn't a sticker and required glue, but that was my bad for not reading the description closely. Both sets I ordered are so pretty!

I love the designs available from this vendor and will use them again. put a package of these with a couple of fun cookbooks as a gift for a new bride, with some seeds and a pair of gloves for a gardener, or with some children's classics as a way of encouraging a young friend to read, and you have a charming, personal gift.

About

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 remember many of the books from when I was a child, and I am always delighted to get an email from someone who sees a particular picture and is brought back to his or her own childhood. 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!

*Hello!

My designs come from my personal collection of vintage books from the 1920's, most of which belonged to my grandparents, some of which I've found along the way in thrift shops or antique stores. Creating each design can be a lot of work: the original illustration (which is often torn, scratched, or discolored) is scanned, cleaned up, and 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 I can push them 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 are *SUPER* picky about print quality, and even the nicest sticky-back paper is mediocre. 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. Please note that all California state residents will be charged 9% sales tax.

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

Our friends at the USPS do an excellent job, but sometimes a package gets delayed or lost; please understand that we are not a shipping company and we have to rely on others to get my products to you. We will always do my best to track down a late package, but sometimes patience is required, thank you for understanding.

*Domestic orders: we ship USPS first class with tracking; Priority Shipping and overnight Express Shipping are also available through a drop-down menu. If you'd like different method of shipping, please contact us before placing your order.

*International orders: We ship Airmail, first class. If you'd like a different method of shipping, please contact me before placing your order.
Refunds and Exchanges
There are no refunds or exchanges on personalized items, thank you for understanding. If your order arrives damaged, please contact me with a description of the damage (I may ask for a photo for the USPS) and I will replace the order immediately.

The sale of digital items are final, please make sure you are purchasing the correct item before checking out.

Returns of non-personalized items are accepted within 7 days of receiving your order. Items must be returned free from damage and in original, new condition. Shipping costs are nonrefundable.

Please make sure your personalization request is spelled correctly and that your shipping address is correct; I cannot be held responsible for lost packages due to incorrect addresses.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about your order at any time.

Additional policies and FAQs
I often get emails about selling wholesale, and I'm honored by the interest! But at this time I don't sell wholesale: if I can figure out how to design, print, cut, package, and mail in half the time, that could change.
