At the request of a pen pal, I'm adding a bulk order to my etsy shop. You get 40 sheets of A5 sized Tomoe River paper for $15, which is a smidgen more than 30% off! Happy letter writing everyone. :D Each sheet is approximately 5.25" x 8.25".
You can order up to 4 different designs of 10 sheets each, or you can get fewer designs and more sheets of each. You can also ask for ***blank sheets*** AND I'm even willing to work something out if you want just plain lined paper (see the second photo in the listing), or specific types of lines (style & colour) and **different line spacing***, or even if you want me to try and figure out how to make a grid or dotPad-like pattern in different colours.
Each sheet is approximately 5.25" x 8.25" (A5 sized)
Printed on "white" Tomoe River paper. This paper is incredibly thin but is 100% *fountain pen friendly*. See a review for the cream paper at: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/239977-tomoe-river-paper-cream-a4/ Although you do get shadowing with this paper, you are still able to write on both sides if you wish to do so. I have had no bleed through in testing so far. This thin paper is ideal for long letter writers, as postage will be less expensive! :)
Working with Tomoe River paper is extremely difficult due to its thinness, and each sheet must get hand fed through a printer one at a time. So far, I am the only person that I know of who offers stationery with printed designs on Tomoe River paper.
PLEASE NOTE - I'm not really sure how this will impact shipping with other items, so the shipping cost may go up or down on this set after a few weeks while I narrow down how much it really costs to ship. It won't be a huge difference either way, but should keep to a 50 cent variable.
The environment is very important to me, so I package everything in very eco-friendly items, keeping plastic to a minimum. No cellophane wrapped items here! Your stationery is packed against cardboard for protection, then wrapped in thick paper and sealed with Kind Words Stationery labels. Once you rip open this package, everything used to send it is easily recyclable.

Returns & exchanges

I take great care to make sure my photos are a color-accurate as possible, but variations in monitors may make colors slightly different on your screen than mine.
If there is significant damage to the image (or example, some of the lines smudged into the lines underneath them, or if parts of the image are missing), then I'll ask that you send me a photo for proof, and so that I can fix my process to ensure it doesn't happen again, after which I'll be happy to send you replacement stationery.
•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*´¨) (¸.•´ (¸Lost Packages I am not responsible for lost packages. If your package is lost let me know and I will file an insurance claim on it if you paid for insurance. Keep in mind that First Class International packages are NOT insured and may take up to 3 months to arrive if they are waylaid in Customs. Normally this is not the case, but it can happen. If you choose not to insure a package, please keep in mind that once I send it I have no way to recover your losses if it never arrives or is very delayed. If you are concerned about this, please upgrade to International Priority Mail. I reserve the right to upgrade to this shipping method (which can have insurance) if the value of the package is very high.

In order to be fair to both myself and my customers (as a high volume of DIY orders means that I often have less to purchase off the digital shelf), I have added a small fee for this service. This fee helps to cover the time spent developing a custom request, responding to conversations, sourcing and ordering special materials, and reworking the design to meet my customers’ approval.
