Hi there! Welcome to Wintertime Crafts.

I hope you're finding lots of goodies for your crafty projects. Don't miss the new shop section 'Precious Finds' where you can browse some of my best finds from Japanese and Chinese brands. I have limited quantities of these and most will not be restocked, so grab them while you can!

Look for the *shop exclusive* stamps, washi tapes, stickers, and papers if you want unique items. These are all designed (and some handmade) by me. I value high quality, so I offer only the best materials and packaging for my exclusive products. Want to view these products only? Simply enter the word "exclusive" into the shop search function!

Most products sold here at Wintertime Crafts are created using scans of late 1800s to early 1900s books, postcards, tickets and other ephemera. They're vintage inspired reproductions, made to look old, made for paper crafters to be able to achieve that beautiful vintage look in their journals, scrapbooks, notebooks etc.

I consider myself an ephemerist, or as my husband would say, the crazy paper collector. I'm always looking for that next special gem to add to my growing collection of ephemera. Once in a while I offer some of these vintage originals in the shop, but to be honest, I can rarely part with them. I scan everything and create artwork for the exclusive Wintertime Crafts products and for my own projects - but the originals, well, they go back into their drawers, binders and sometimes in a frame on the wall.

Be sure to read the entire description on each product. It will clearly state if it's a Wintertime Crafts exclusive product, where it's made, if it's a true vintage item and other helpful details. If you're in doubt or have questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Orders eligible for free shipping will always be shipped using the cheapest available rate from USPS. For example: Etsy calculates your order to weigh 13.5 oz (Priority Mail 1-3 days) but it ends up weighing 12.2 oz when packed. The order will then be shipped using First Class Mail (2-5 days). Please be aware of this as it can make the delivery time slightly longer than the estimate shown on Etsy.

♥ To international buyers ♥

I ship to the following countries: Canada and Australia.

✦ Due to new regulations in 2021 I no longer ship to EU countries ✦

Before placing your order please be aware that all countries have different procedures for customs. When the package arrives in your country it's perfectly normal for it to take 1-2 weeks to go through customs (up to 6 weeks for some countries), especially if any import charges are to be paid. These duties, taxes and clearance fees apply depending on the value of your order and it's your responsibly to know the current import amount limit for your country before placing your order. The fees will usually be charged by your local postal service or customs office before releasing the package.

Please be aware of this before you place your order: Using Priority Mail International with USPS as the shipping method will usually NOT make this entire process any faster. I recommend using First Class Mail for all international shipments and if expedited shipping is needed you can always contact me for FedEx, UPS or DHL options.

When a package has departed USA the USPS tracking system isn't always reliable depending on the country of arrival. Oftentimes, packages aren't scanned before going into customs but only once released to the local postal system.
Even if no updates are showing on the tracking please know your package is on it's way.

USPS does not offer missing package claims for First Class International packages. Once the package enters your country the local postal service takes over and some might assign the package a new local tracking number.

The "Shop policies" section of my shop have estimated shipping times listed as a general guideline (these will also be included in your order e-mail). If your package has not arrived within the timeframe shown for your country, please contact me and I'll do my best to help.

Sincerely,
Heidi Meamber

Frequently asked questions
Do you ship to East Asia?

Yes! But please use only rōmaji/roman letters in your name and an English format of your address. This way it's possible for me to print the label through Etsy and ensure that your package arrives successfully.

Will you declare the package as gift or with a lower value for customs?

Unfortunately, no. I insure many of my packages to minimize losses when they get lost once in a while. When filing an insurance claim I'll only get back the value declared on the customs form.

Do you offer wholesale pricing for larger orders?

Yes, for my shop exclusive products and other select items I do. Please contact me with the product(s) and quantity you'd like to purchase and I'll get back to you.

The shipping cost for my order seems unreasonably high?

Sometimes, for larger orders, Esty's system will split the items into multiple boxes/shipments and calculate the shipping based on this. Very rarely will more than 1 box actually be needed, so once your order is packed and weighed I'll refund you any shipping overages. If you're in doubt about the calculated shipping cost of an order please don't hesitate to contact me.

How long before my order ships?

Most orders are packed and shipped within 2-4 business days (weekends + public holidays not included). A few 'made to order' items in the shop have a processing time of up to 6 days. Please expect longer processing times during sales and holidays, especially from end October until January.

How does the free shipping guarantee work for orders $35+?

Any order totaling $35+ after discounts/sales will automatically have free shipping applied during checkout. Orders eligible for free shipping will always be shipped using the cheapest available rate from USPS. For example: Etsy calculates your order to weigh 16.5 oz (Priority Mail 1-3 days) but it ends up weighing 15.2 oz when packed. The order will then be shipped using First Class Mail (2-5 days). In a few cases the shipment will be split into 2 packages, in that case you'll receive 2 tracking numbers. Please be aware of this as it can make the delivery time slightly longer than the estimate shown on Etsy.

My package is missing?

Packages going missing is quite rare. Occasionally a package will be marked as delivered by USPS prematurely. In this case simply wait a few days and see if it arrives. Make sure to check around your property/building in case it was placed at a side door or similar. Check with other members of the household - maybe they accepted a package but forgot to let you know? Ask your neighbors if they’ve received a package - maybe it was delivered to the wrong house number?

Bring the tracking number to your local post office (avoid the hotline). They can provide helpful information and in some cases the package might even be sitting at the post office!

If you suspect package theft you should file a report with USPS and the police.

Tracking says "delivered" but my package is not here?

Wintertime Crafts LLC cannot refund or replace orders showing “delivered” on the tracking history. When placing an order please follow these guidelines to help ensure that your package arrives safe and sound:

• Double check that your address is correct.

• Take note of the expected delivery date shown on your tracking details after your order ships. It might change, so check daily! Make sure you or a family member is at home to receive the package.

• If you’re unable to receive the package in person give USPS specific instructions for the delivery. If none are given they'll simply place it outside your house/building. As soon as it's dropped off by USPS the responsibility is on you, as the receiver, to ensure the package is safe.

One of the paper products have an odor?

Some of my paper products, mostly the ones with printed vellum, can have a slight odor/smell when removing their packaging. Please don’t be alarmed! This is simply caused by the different printing process used: UV printing. Non-toxic special ink is distributed on the paper and cured under UV light (like gel nail polish). The products are often packed right away which can trap some odors. Simply remove the product from its packaging and let it air out a bit.

Do you ship to PO Boxes and APO/FPO addresses?

Yes! All orders are shipped with USPS and the shipping cost will be calculated during checkout.
