For Adventurers of Land and Page

Welcome to Type Shy, a line of modern, keepsake paper goods.

My process — paper cutting — means every item in the shop is carefully and individually constructed. I use high-quality materials in all of my work and create keepsakes that are beloved long after they are opened. (In fact, many people tell me they have framed Type Shy cards.) Because many of my items contain vintage paper, they are truly one-of-a-kind gifts that will make your loved one feel super special.

Frequently asked questions
Shipping

>> Most orders ship in 1-3 business days. You will receive a notice via Etsy when your items ship. All orders ship via USPS and include complimentary tracking and delivery confirmation.

>> I know what it’s like to wait for online orders and I do my best to ship items quickly. Thank you for understanding that I cannot be held responsible for USPS delays, errors, or damages.

>> No international shipping at this time.

>> Per Etsy rules, orders with an incorrect address will need to be canceled and repurchased.

Can I pick the map location? Can you make my quote?

Custom map orders are currently closed but should reopen by Christmas 2020. Please join my mailing list to get a notification when they reopen: www.bit.ly/hellotypeshy

I am currently not able to accommodate custom wording or quotes.

Refund and Return Policy

Due to Covid-19, I've temporarily closed returns and exchanges. However, if you have any issues or problems with your order, please contact me so I can help.

Because of an increase of scams here on Etsy, I reserve the right to refuse a sale and/or cancel any order I believe to be suspicious.

Can I send a card/gift directly to a recipient?

Yes! Please indicate that your item is a gift at checkout and make sure the shipping address is correct. Gift packages do not include a receipt.

ARTWORK AND GIFTS: All artwork, notebooks, and gifts arrive wrapped in pretty tissue paper and/or bags without any additional cost.

GREETING CARDS: You can include a printed message inside our cards at no additional cost. Messages are printed out and folded inside, (not physically written in the card). Be sure to include your message in the "Note to seller" field at checkout and we will take care of the rest.

Delayed or Lost Packages

USPS tracking times are estimates and can be inaccurate. In my experience, orders that have stopped tracking DO eventually show up, although it's sometimes much later than expected. In many cases, waiting a few more days results in delivery.

In the rare instance that your order goes missing or is significantly delayed (over 3+ weeks), please send me a message with details. Thank you for understanding that I cannot be held not responsible for errors, delays, or damages made by USPS.

You must contact me within 30 days of order to report a lost or delayed package. Packages marked delivered cannot be refunded unless the item is returned in new condition.

Wholesale availability

I offer wholesale to qualified brick and mortar stores in the US. Please send me a message or email hello@typeshy.com to learn more.

Covid-19 Precautions and Temporary Policies

As a small business owner and parent, I am very concerned with the spread of Covid-19. For my part, I have been running a very clean studio, sanitizing my work areas, and washing my hands frequently. In addition, my family has been self-isolated since March 16.

All orders have been processing as normal, most within 1-3 days. Orders ship via USPS which is currently reporting a one day delay to shipments. Shipping upgrades are available on all listings should you need things faster. Custom items are unavailable at this time.

I am currently unable to accept any returns, refunds, or exchanges. Thank you for understanding. Wishing you peace and the best of health — Stephanie
