Custom Order vs. Ready to Ship

Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product must be ordered before it’s created.  Both are handmade but the pre-made item is shipment ready while the made-to-order products can take three to four weeks to be created for you.

My Booklandia handcrafts custom orders within two weeks of receiving the required books.  Oftentimes, custom orders process faster than that but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time.  If we need to order the books, or you ship the books to us, the shipping time for the books needs to be factored into the time it takes to craft your item.

Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:


Due to the handmade process and the unique condition, age and wear of the books and materials used, product(s) you receive may vary from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) .

Care for your new product(s) by:

  • Caring for upcycled book item including book lamps, book planters and book clocks: 
    In general, dusting with a dry cloth is all that’s needed. Using any liquid cleaner, including water, may discolor or damage the book’s surface.
  • If your upcycled book item gets dirty for some reason, the best remedy is your common Pink Pearl eraser. Lightly erase, using your Pink Pearl, any dirt or spots and brush off any eraser crumbs.
  • If your item gets wet, blot with a dry cloth. The covers may become a little discolored, but drying promptly and allowing any moisture to air dry will minimize any damage.
  • Book Clocks:
    If your clock begins running erratically: Quartz time movements are very reliable. If your clock should begin running erratically or the second hand stops, In most cases the culprit is a bad battery. Replace the battery with a fresh new battery and your clock should run like new.
    Loose clock hands:  If the hands aren’t moving properly, and you’ve replaced the battery with a known good battery, the problem may be that one of the hands has come loose.  Tightening the hands is pretty simple and doesn’t require special tools. Check the battery first, then contact me for detailed instructions.
    Bent clock hands:  If you should accidentally bend the clock hands, they can be carefully bent straight again.
  • Mini-Book Items:
  • Mini books are constructed of paper so be sure they are kept dry. 
  • They are meant for decorative purposes only, not for rough wear.  Flexing the mini-book spine will damage the book and may damage or loosen the jewelry findings or mini-book pages.

Selecting expedited shipping during checkout does not ensure a faster processing time. Your product may still need up to three weeks to be handmade.  If we need to wait for delivery of the books to use in your custom order, that will take additional time  I will provide you with a time estimate when the book selections are made and/or the books have been received.
