proteapress' Shop Policies


Welcome to Protea Press!

We are a Toronto-based husband and wife team working together to produce unique and superior quality stationery. All of our designs are carefully made and can often be customized to suit your needs. If there is something particular you want, or a variation on one of our products, please feel free to contact us and discuss what you are looking for.


Protea Press accepts payment through Etsy via direct checkout, PayPal and Etsy gift card only. We require full payment for your order before any customization or design work begins.


We ship using Canada Post parcel mail services. All orders over $100.00 will require signature confirmation upon delivery.

Any duties incurred with international shipping are the responsibility of the buyer. Please contact us for shipping quotes. UPS courier shipping is available for an added expense - please indicate upon purchase if you wish to use this option.

Occasionally, international parcel shipments can be delayed at customs or at international locations. Protea Press cannot foresee or hold any responsibility for delays on international shipments. Please ensure you leave plenty of time to receive your handmade stationery items.

Stationery samples are shipped via Canada Post standard or international letter mail, with an estimated delivery time of 7-14 business days.

We are proud to ship our products worldwide!

Refunds and Exchanges

Due to the custom nature of our stationery products, we do not offer refunds or exchanges for any of our products unless there was an error on during production.

Regretfully, we cannot accept responsibility for errors with your stationery order that were missed on the approved proofs. The client takes full responsibility for ensuring the correctness of all information, spelling, colour choices and design of their purchase.

Should you wish to cancel your order before approving your stationery items for printing, Protea Press will retain a 50% deposit of your sales total, up to $100.00. Once you have approved your final proof and the printing process has begun, refunds or cancellations are no longer available.

Your customized files will be deleted from our storage servers 120 days from the date of initial purchase. We will not have the ability to change, revise or resend your order after this time period has expired.
