About

I couldn't let all those cool covers get thrown away!

I was driving by a Blockbuster a number of years ago, and found the store was going out of business! So, naturally, I went in to get some cool movies for next to nothing. What I found instead was a unique little business idea! There were literally thousands of placards for DVDs in a bin for sale. People were going through them and buying one or two of their favorite movie or tv show. I thought to myself, wow, those are just the perfect size for notebooks! So, I bought all that remained, about 5000. I went home and began researching online book binding tools and bought crimping wire and a binding machine and, eventually, a really nice corner cutter. Thus, my little notebook business opened shop!

I hadn't ever seen anyone using these gorgeous DVD covers back when I started and since then, there are a number of shops who offer them. I love my books and so do my customers, many of who are repeat customers.

What makes me different?
1) I make sure to use recycled paper from responsible foresters. It costs more, but it makes your purchase a bit more special because you buying an eco-friendly and recyclable product!
2) I round all of my corners, making them nice and smooth so no paper cuts! (yay)
3) I only use recycled packaging and shipping materials!
4) I ship twice a week, Tuesday and Friday, so every order ships within 3 business days.

I hope you will enjoy my handmade product and I hope I see you again!

I'm super grateful for Etsy and all of my customers. Thank you for looking at my shop and thanks for your support!

-Rebecca

Shop policies

Last updated on October 16, 2012
I will do everything I can to ensure that you love what you get! I do my best to represent each item exactly as it would come to you. Please bear in mind, though, that handmade means one of kind! I don't disappoint.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We appreciate prompt payment, so please don't purchase items until you are ready to pay for them, it really helps the process go better, you know? So, please checkout with PayPal! If you're afraid something will be sold out, just convo me, and I will make sure there is one available for you when you are ready to pay. If you need to cancel after ordering but before shipping, I will refund your purchase price minus whatever fees I've incurred, like the listing fee and final value fee, which is usually nominal. So, I will refund the balance. I hope you understand. :)
Shipping
Paying for shipping sucks and it's so expensive, isn't it? Going to the post office sucks too, but I will never charge you for that trip. I do charge exactly the cost to ship or less, sometimes, I help out a little. I even pay for the packaging.

When you buy two books, you automatically receive priority shipping. At three, you may receive a partial refund due to the combined shipping options here on Etsy.

Unless otherwise specified in a listing or due to vacation mode, all orders will leave these premises within 3 days of purchase!
Refunds and Exchanges
It would break my heart if you didn't love your purchase, but if you need to return an item after it's been shipped, please return unused, and I will happily issue you a store credit for use in any of my shops (minus selling fees.)
:)
For custom items, I will offer a 50% refund, or store credit in exchange for the return of your UNUSED item. I will resell the item.

If you purchase a notebook and see that it went on sale within 30 days of your purchase, I will refund you the difference.
Additional policies and FAQs
NOTE: Due to low availability across the webs, until further notice, we will no have black binding rings. All notebooks will have steel unless specified in the listing to be white because it looks nice with the cover, or if you just request white. The silver (steel) looks great with everything though and I know you'll love it!

I really appreciate the kind of people who shop here and I value the ethics and standards that Etsy maintains. If you have any questions about my company or just anything in general, please convo me and I'll tell you straight.

Thanks, and please support artists so we wont be a dying breed.
