Paper for Calligraphers, Crafters Scrapbookers, Journallers & Artists...

Years ago there was a national calligraphy event being held locally. A paper seller pulled out, so I decided to buy some stock to fill the gap. That first paper order was quite conservative... 2 or 3 different whites, some ingres & a gorgeous japanese tanabata paper with sparkly gold squares. Then a calligraphy group placed a bulk order with Khadi... I hadn't heard of them back then, but bought a selection anyway. Oh boy! I was hooked. The texture... the colours.... *swoon*

Khadi is a UK supplier who works with communities in India to produce papers made by traditional methods in sustainable ways. This both preserves techniques & generates an income to many families. The papers are specifically designed for artists and are suitable for most media.

I used to sell at calligraphy meetings & at the classes I taught, eventually teaching workshops enabling calligraphers to try as many different papers as possible, but now I work from home & indulge my paper passion alone *sigh*. My under-bed space is full, and on top of the wardrobe is over-flowing. I hold on to the last sheets of discontinued lines unable to part with them, & frankly it's quite ridiculous and so I now offer a selection of my 'stash' to others who appreciate gorgeous papers from around the world.

    Hi, my name's Suzi & I'm addicted to paper. There, I've said it. I have such a collection that I can't possibly use all of it & I certainly won't "get rid" of any unless it goes to someone who will also appreciate it & lovingly create with it ;-)

I don't sit at the computer all day though & when I'm in "creative" mode I may only check once or twice a day, but please feel free to get in touch with any queries or concerns... or just to say hello!

**Please note: I do combine postage for more than 1 item & will always refund the overcharge. You are welcome to enquire first for an accurate price and personal listing if you wish.

All items will be posted within 3 days of receiving payment.
Postage within the UK is by First Class Mail for smaller packages and either Parcel post or courier for larger orders. A signature will usually be required for orders over £20 within the UK. Special delivery (next day) can be arranged... just get in touch & I'll advise you of the price.

Postage Overseas is by standard Airmail. Tracking adds significantly to the cost, so I generally only add it to larger orders. If you require the package to be tracked & signed for on delivery the cost is £6 (sterling), but please contact me first & I will adjust the listing for you.
Delivery to USA from UK can be anywhere between 1-3 weeks, occasionally longer. Most arrives in around 2 weeks. Sorry I can't be more precise, but it depends on the time to clear customs.

Please note that you are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

Book pages will be packed flat, with cardboard to protect.
Smaller sheets of paper will be packed flat with cardboard to protect.
Large sheets of paper will be rolled in a sturdy tube.

**The weight of various papers varies so much & postage goes up in 100g or 250g (.25-1 oz) increments depending on the weight, so it's very easy for me to make errors in estimating the shipping costs for combined orders. If you are ordering several items I will always refund any over-charges, or if you prefer, you can enquire first & I'll prepare a custom listing.
Refunds and Exchanges
If something is wrong, I'd rather know & have the chance to put it right... please email me straight away so we can discuss the options.

If you are not happy with your item for whatever reason, just contact me within 14 days of receipt.... I will exchange or refund the purchase price, providing you return it to me in it's original condition. You pay the cost of return postage.
If you prefer to use an 'official' returns form, EU customers may use one available here>

If something is lost or damaged in transit I will refund or replace it... please let me know straight away & keep the packaging as 'evidence' for any post office investigation.
Contact me first though, before you send anything back in the post, so that we can discuss the best way forward.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries about any of my listings or for custom orders.
I want you to be happy with your purchase... and if you are pleased, then do tell everyone, if you aren't, please tell me so that I can have chance to sort things out!
