25% of the profits from this envelope set will be donated to Doctors Without Borders,/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) -- an international medical humanitarian organization working in nearly 70 countries to assist people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.
You'll receive a set of ten, one-of-a-kind recycled map envelopes, made to order.
2 sheets of handcut, recycled/ upcycled coordinating writing paper are included in each envelope.
Please specify if you want coordinating address labels or not. (the sample photos show envelopes with address labels attached)
Measurements: fits 9.5" x 5" enclosure.
These will be all hand traced, handcut, glued and gummed with handmade vanilla envelope glue*, and made from a custom designed template. Envelopes are each carefully made from pages out of vintage world atlas books and paper from vintage paper sample books and other upcycled paper sources. (*glue contains gelatin, if you would rather I not use the gelatin glue, let me know and I will leave it out.)
OPTIONAL UPGRADE: Comes with affixed upcycled blank labels (3.5" x 2") for you to write any info/ address upon.
ANOTHER OPTIONAL UPGRADE: I can write the destination addresses out in calligraphy for you at 2$ each. If you are interested in this option, contact me for examples.
I will ship using USPS, the least expensive method for a reasonable amount of time-- Usually First Class Mail. I am willing to use another method if you request it. (like Priority Mail.) Insurance is optional, but strongly recommended, especially for multiple purchases. International Buyers: You are responsible for any taxes or fees your country may impose.
I prefer Paypal for payment, but will also accept credit, Etsy gift cards, cashier's check, money order or personal check. If you intend to pay with any sort of check or MO please let me know.
I always ship quickly - usually within 1-2 business days of cleared payment.
Returns & exchanges
I always package my items securely and carefully, and therefore am not responsible for damages/loss incurred after my package is handed over at the post office. But If you item arrives damaged or you are reasonably unsatisfied, send it back to me for a refund of item price (sorry, no shipping refunds).
In the case of a shipping overage , I will refund the excess in amounts over one dollar.
I am happy to consider custom work and trades. Please contact me. I don't do wholesale or consignment, because my operation is too small. I make unique items from unique materials. Nothing will be reproducible "exactly" or in very large quantity with the quantity exception of map and music envelopes-- I do have TONS of them... ;)
