About presentsforpirates

Sales 275
On Etsy since 2007

Heartfelt inappropriate intellect in the form of handmade paper treasures.

A maker of things, a painter, a paper snob, a letter writing, foul mouthed mama. Mainly self-taught, but ever obsessed with paper since I was far too young to have been obsessed with paper. One of my greatest joys is that of receiving and particularly sending mail. I believe in the art of not being a "mail spoiler", and have a very real fear that once our grandmothers are all gone, the United States Postal Service will cease to exist.

Her late grandfather's words will forever resonate with her: "Why buy it when you can make it for more?"

Send love // send letters.

holla! thanks for stopping by! i always welcome and encourage any requests for custom items!

all items are made in my home, which is a smoke free environment. we have two dogs, but as a rule, i generally don't allow them to participate in the crafting process.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
if you receive anything that you are not completely satisfied with or that you feel was misrepresented, please contact me within 3 days of receipt and i will arrange to replace the item or make it right. i will pay all shipping charges and i do require that the original item be shipped back to me.
*in the event that an item does not arrive and the delivery confirmation number cannot place the item, i am prepared to offer a full refund.
i accept payment through Etsy, by way of paypal. if payment isn't made within 48 hours, sales will be canceled. sorry lovers; no layaway here.
i ship via USPS first class, within 3 days of receipt of payment.. if this does not meet your needs, please contact me and i will be happy to arrange for signature confirmation or will ship priority for an additional fee. i ship to the address specified in paypal. if you would like me to ship to a different address, please be sure to tell me in the notes.

for international shipping, I mail with USPS First Class Package service. that means that tracking isn't available for most countries once the package leaves the US. and since delivery time varies by country, it can take 10-20 business days or longer, so keep that in mind before you order!
Additional policies and FAQs
any coupons, codes, or gift certificates are good for one time use only. they are NOT good with any other offer, but i will honor the highest and best coupon you have!

generally speaking, items are made to order. if you need something custom, something faster, message me before ordering so we can chat about the specifics!
