About

A longtime love of possibility and beauty that I'd like to share with you.

On a bookshelf in my home is a row of journals - short, tall, thick, slender, colorful, and filled with thoughts and stories. From a very young age I've been enamored with blank books, with their incredible potential to protect and curate precious memories, brilliant ideas, and great stories. Holding a brand new notebook fills me with a surge of expectant joy and possibility.

As an avid reader, too, I've always been fascinated by beautiful words. A longtime admirer of calligraphy and lettering, I decided in January 2015 to pick up the pen myself and begin my lettering journey. I've found immense joy and peace in creating beautiful letters by hand. With this shop, I hope to share my love for blank books and beautiful letters with you. May these books become your own treasure trove!

You can follow my regular lettering and calligraphy practice on Instagram @thelivelypen. Thanks for stopping by!

Returns and exchange details
Due to the nature of custom work, I am unable to offer returns or refunds on custom or personalized items. Please note that as all lettering and calligraphy is done by hand, it is common for custom work to include minor variations in spacing, size, and style.

If you receive an incorrect or damaged item, please contact me as soon as possible so I can make it right!

Thank you for your understanding!
Shipping
If you will need your item by a certain date, please contact me before ordering to clarify whether expedited shipping or a rush order would be necessary. I recommend ordering at least two weeks prior to your event/need by date.

Please be aware that USPS delivery timelines are estimates. As shipment & delivery are handled by USPS, I am unable to guarantee delivery dates, and I am not responsible for delayed delivery as a result of USPS delays.

Thank you for your understanding!

Wholesale availability

I do offer bulk discounts for my notebooks, ranging from 10-25% off depending on quantity. I would love to work with you on a large order!

Can I add my wedding date to my vow books?

Absolutely! You can upgrade to include your wedding date, location, a special quote, or other details by adding additional words to your order (see https://www.etsy.com/listing/257456167/additional-word-upgrade). Note: A date in "MM-DD-YYYY" format counts as 2 additional words for a set of vow books (1 per book), while a date in "Month Day, Year" format counts as 4 additional words (2 per book). Please feel free to message me if I can help clarify anything!
