About

Hello fellow book nerds!

I am, I am, I am.

Well, as you can see, I’m a Sylvia Plath fan. I also like a lot of other books. No, seriously, like a lot of other books. If you’re looking at this shop, I’m guessing you do to.

Cool. Let’s be friends.

Now that we’re friends, I should probably tell you a little more about myself and how Pretty Bookish came to be. My name is Kristina and I’ve been bookish for as long as I can remember. The bigger the pile of books, the better. Libraries and bookstores are my happy places. If I could go back in time (where’s the TARDIS when you need it?) and tell the younger version of myself about e-readers, it would have blown my mind. I would also probably be mad at my future self for “destroying” books.

Let me explain.

Pretty Bookish only repurposes books that are old, damaged, unreadable, and unwanted. If books that are still in good condition come into my possession, I donate them so that they can continue to be enjoyed.

In 2015 I formed Pretty Bookish. It all started with a box of old books. The idea of throwing out these books that couldn’t even be donated made me sad, so a new idea was born. I decided to give these discarded books a new life by turning them into pretty handmade products so that these pages can continue to be adored by readers. Sounds like a win-win to me!

When I’m not being bookish, you can find me hanging out with my husband and two adorable and hilarious sons. I’m learning to embrace being a hockey mom and trying not to become a cat lady. I work as a virtual assistant, dabble in photography, drink too much chai tea, and make lots of bad puns, always with a cat (or 2) by my side.

I love to make stuff and am forever grateful whenever someone likes my work enough to compliment or purchase it. I love the opportunity to nerd out with other book lovers, so let's chat!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Once you purchase a listing for a custom order I will contact you for the details of what you would like. I will also offer suggestions as to how to best fit the desired text on the piece (certain shapes better fit certain words or phrases from the book pages).
Once I have everything I need, I will send a photo of the product before everything is sealed and finalized. Once I get your approval I will finish the order and ship it.
How long does it take?
Generally, 1-2 weeks. This all depends on how quickly I can find the book you request. I will give you an estimated ship time when we communicate the details of the order. If you need the order within a certain time frame, please let me know.

Custom orders are non-returnable.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Is this a gift? I would be happy to include a personal message card from you for no extra charge. If you would like this service please let me know what you would like me to write (to fit on a postcard) in the "Note to PrettyBookish" during checkout.

All orders do come packaged 'gift ready' in gift boxes or muslin bags.

Returns and Exchanges

Any refunds will be issued only after the returned item has been received. Returns are accepted within 14 days of delivery confirmation. Refunds will not include the shipping cost and the buyer is responsible for the cost of return shipping.

If for any reason a product arrives damaged, send me a photo within 24 hours of the product being delivered to you. I will gladly send a replacement. No refunds will be given for damaged items.

Shipping

All items that are ready made will ship out within 1-3 days after payment is made. All orders are shipped through the USPS and include tracking.

Please be sure your shipping information is correct before purchasing. Pretty Bookish is not responsible for incorrect address information.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
IMPORTANT: Many countries assess duties and taxes on imported packages. Pretty Bookish is not responsible for any international fees. If you are uncertain of the amount that you could be assessed, you might want to check on it and cancel the order if you think this could be a problem. I SHIP QUICKLY, so you will need to check soon (after I print the shipping label, the cancellation option is no longer available).
