Delightful New Paper Goods

Oh it's definitely been a Monday!  I'm glad it's almost time to relax for the evening, with a cup of tea and a bit of How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory.  

Here are some new things just released in the shop: 

New items 

Teacups in the Little Forest Sticker Set

Kokeshi Darling Flat Notecards

Limited Edition A Crispness In the Air Flat Notecards (available through December 31st, just like the print)

Teacups in the Little Forest Flat Notecards

You might notice that the new notecard sets are being printed on a pretty heavy stock now.  I just found it recently and the weight is just perfect, it's sturdy but also very smooth and holds color well.  I think you will really like it and plan on eventually switching all of the stationery over to it.  

And a quick note on shipping, this week I will be adjusting my international shipping rates just a bit.  I keep my shipping rates as low as I can, because it personally drives me crazy when I find something that I really like and it ends up having outrageous shipping.  That said, as my business grows and the size of each order also increases, I can no longer maintain a flat shipping rate for international orders.  

From this week on, international orders will be charge a flat rate for the first time and then a small extra charge for each additional item.  For example, if you live in Ireland and you buy a print, you will pay $4 for shipping.  If you also buy a set of notecards in the same order, you will be charged an additional 75 cents for shipping.  And so it will continue for each item on the order.  

I'm certainly hoping this doesn't deter any buyers and I don't want anyone to think that I am trying to make extra money from raising shipping charges.  I'm just trying to cover my own shipping costs while providing the lowest shipping cost I can to my customers :)  

I plan to start updating shipping tomorrow, so consider yourself warned.  And I will still be offering Free Shipping on all orders from time to time.  Domestic shipping won't be changing.  

PS-Don't forget I'm going to be in the Etsy Virtual Labs on Thursday at 4pm EST giving a lecture on customer service.
