Do you accept international orders?

Absolutely, and I say that with a couple of caveats:
— All our goods are shipped from the U.S. and accordingly may be subject to customs and VAT. Please check with your local customs office about rules and regulations that may apply to you.
— Things will take a little longer to get to you. Expect to receive something 14-21 days from the time you place your order.
To minimize these inconveniences, we do our best to prioritize international orders and get them out as soon as possible, and offer the most reasonable shipping+handling rates possible.

Is my transaction secure?

Privacy is a definite concern. The information we collect is solely used to contact you about your order, if necessary. Transactions on our site are secured using state-of-the-art encryption technology to ensure that your personal information (your name, address and credit card number) stays secure as it travels to our payment processing system.

How long does it take for my order to ship?

Standard orders are typically processed between 1-3 business days. Please email us if you have any questions about your order. 

Do you charge sales tax?

We are not required to collect sales tax on any orders outside the state of New York. For all New York orders a sales tax does apply.

What is your return and refund policy?

Unused and unopened orders may be returned within 15 days of receipt for a refund. Once we receive the returned item(s) the charges will be credited to you (shipping costs are non-refundable). Used, opened, and/or any final sale items cannot be returned. Any personalized orders are non-refundable once your order is confirmed.


Make sure your order qualifies. Orders may be returned for an exchange so long as the order:
– is damaged or if the production quality was not as promised.
– is returned within 15 days of receipt
– was not purchased on final sale

Please keep the tracking number and any other relevant shipping information in the unlikely event we do not receive your return shipment.

Await Credit

Once a qualified refund is received we will process your refund as soon as possible. The charges placed on your card will be credited to you, though shipping costs are non-refundable. Please note that refunds may take up to ten (10) business days to show on your account due to varying processing times between payment providers.

What kind of paper do you print on?

The standard stock for greeting cards is a heavy weight 110lb. Cover stock in natural white that has a textured finish. Much of our stationery is paired with matching natural white envelopes with a european style (pointed) flap. For the fine art prints, it is a Hahnemühle archival paper stock.

Are you environmentally friendly?

Absolutely. Our stationery is printed on FSC-certified paper stock. We prefer and use local vendors as much as possible. We also strive to do our part by using resources responsibly (reusing scraps etc.) to reduce waste.
