About

Welcome!

My name is Mylene and I’m the owner and founder of Vivlyo. Unless you landed on this page by mere accident, I have a strong idea as to why you are here; but you may be wondering the same about me, so please allow me to indulge you.

I cannot remember, hard as I may try, a period in my life when I didn’t love books. Throughout the critical stages of my intellectual formation I ate with them, thought about the world through them, dreamt of the realms I found in them, and slowly came to the irrevocable conclusion that there are few pleasures more edifying and fulfilling than the act of reading. In fact, if I were pressed to choose an equal, only one candidate comes to mind. Art. I could spend my entire life wandering through the galleries of the Louvre surrounded by the fruits of the Rinascimento, or drinking a delicious cappuccino while gazing at The Birth of Venus. My passions were and have been in place for times immemorial, all that was needed was a burst of inspiration.

So on a fateful morning in 2013, while wandering through verdurous Kew Gardens and gazing at a playful conglomeration of daffodils, a tantalizing thought arose; if Wordsworth, drifting through the Lake District, could combine flowers and thoughts to create poetry, why couldn’t I combine literature and my own set of contemplations and cortical connections to generate art. That very day, a dream and a goal came to fruition, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So why am I here? Simple. I am here to help you make your walls come alive with stories. I am here to crystallize your passion for books and learning into tangible explosions of joy, color and scents. But primarily, I am here because for there to be a conclusion there must also be a beginning, and this is my beginning...

Thank you so very much for stopping by and, for goodness’ sake, keep on reading.

Cheers!

Mylene

All orders will be shipped via USPS. If you need a different courier, please let me know before placing your order.

♦♦♦ INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
For orders shipped outside USA, please be aware that custom charges may apply when the item enters your country. The buyer is responsible for this charge.
We cannot mark the item as a gift as this is a federal crime in the United States. If this changes your decision, please cancel your order within 1 hour and we will happily refund in full.

♦♦♦PACKAGING
Our top priority is that your item(s) arrive safe and sound. To ensure this we do as follows:

For 8" x 10" prints we use a strong photo mailer with an extra board piece inside to avoid possible damage during shipment. Your print is safely sealed inside an acid-free cello bag to protect it from humidity and other environmental factors.

For larger prints we carefully roll it and package it inside a very sturdy 3" diameter tube. The sturdiness of the mailing tube provides a high degree of protection from any bending or scratching.

T-Shirts are carefully wrapped on acid free tissue wrapping paper and inserted inside a water, tear and puncture resistant mailer.

♦♦♦TRACKING INFORMATION AND ORDER STATUS
Upon shipping of your order you will receive a notification email with your tracking information. Please note that once your order is shipped we have no control over it; if you order is delayed in transit please contact your local postal office and provide them with your tracking information, they will be able to help you.
International orders: USPS updates the status of your order up to when it leaves the USA. Once your order enters your country, order status will be not updated for most countries. You should contact your postal service for any information at that time.

If unfortunately you decide to cancel your order, please do so within 1 hr. after the order being placed and we will happily refund in full. For Prints, Canvas and T-shirts, after the 1 hr. period has passed, only 50% of the total will be refunded due to the fact that each item is printed to order and on-demand.

Additional policies and FAQs
♦♦♦ T-SHIRT CARE INSTRUCTIONS
It is preferable to wash in cold water, with like colors, in a delicate cycle to preserve the integrity of the design. Wash inside out. Avoid harsh, corrosive cleaning detergents. Do not iron, bleach, or dry clean.
Drying must take place in a low heat cycle or, better yet, hang outside to dry. This will also help in the preservation of your design.

♦♦♦ PRINTS AND CANVAS COLOR ACCURACY
As with any piece of artwork sold online, please keep in mind that the accuracy of the color is highly dependent on the calibration of your monitor, the type of monitor you have, and the viewing angle (along with other factors). Regardless of these variables, we are certain that you will love our color combinations, whether it is 100% or 98% in-line with the appearance on your monitor.

♦♦♦ CANDLE SAFETY TIPS
• Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep.
•Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn.
• Put candle holders on a sturdy, uncluttered surface.
• Light candles carefully. Keep your hair and any loose clothing away from the flame.
• Don’t burn a candle all the way down — put it out before it gets too close to the holder or container.
• Never use a candle if oxygen is used in the home.
• Wicks should be trimmed after every 3-4 hours of burning. Keeping wicks trimmed to 6 mm (1/4 inch) and keeping the candle out of droughts will prevent smoking and excessive mushrooming. Avoid trimming your wicks too short; this will cause ineffective burning conditions.
• We only use wicks that are 100% cotton. You will sometimes notice a ‘mushrooming’ of the wick; this is a natural characteristic of cotton wicks. To provide the strongest burn possible, we recommend you remove the black ‘mushroom’ before burning and periodically during the burning.
• Candles should be left to burn until a complete melt pool has formed across the top of the container (approx 2-3 hours). Allow your candle to liquefy to the edge before extinguishing; this will help to prevent ‘tunneling’ of the candle.

Frequently asked questions

What kind of paper are the literary posters printed on?

Our posters are printed on Kodak Professional Paper with a gorgeous luster finish for long lasting quality and beauty, and has an archival value of 100 years.

Do your literary prints come framed?

Because the shipping cost and probability of damage are high, literary prints are sold unframed. We can, however, recommend a few retailers where you can buy inexpensive frames to fit your literary posters.

Which fabric are literary t-shirts made of?

All t-shirts are manufactured by Next Level Apparel and made of 100% combed cotton jersey. Although t-shirts are put together in different parts of the world, the company is WRAP certified, always ensuring a sweat free and child abuse free process.

Why are all candles white?

We love color; but rather than choosing one, we decided from the beginning to choose them all. White is, after all, the combination of all colors in the spectrum. Symbolically, white is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity; it has an infinitely positive connotation that pervades art and literature. Colors abound and each one is beautiful in its own right, but we’ve chosen to focus in what matters most—the fragrance and the poetry of the literary moment we are attempting to capture for you.

What kind of wax do you use on your candles?

♦♦♦ Soy Wax ♦♦♦
One of the greatest advantages of our soy candles is that they do not contain toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. No petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles and no CO2 released to the atmosphere. Furthermore, soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle. Since our candles are made out of soybeans, they are naturally biodegradable which makes accidental spills easier to clean (water soluble).

Tell me more about the wicks used in your candles.

Our candle wicks consist of flat cotton braided with paper strands, giving it a rigid structure without the need of a supporting core. The wicks are coated with vegetable wax, making them “all natural wicks”.
The paper material in our wicks provide a controlled curling which produces much less soot and smoke compared to paper cored wicks.
