COLLAGE DETAILS
The postage stamps used in your cover collage date from a wide range of periods, from early 20th century up to the 1960s (or thereabouts) and bear fragments of postmarks and other cancellation marks as a testament to their former active service for worldwide postal services, providing a real sense of history. This collage includes stamps from: Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Israel, Morocco, the Netherlands, Northern Rhodesia, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, the United States, and Zambia.

The reverse of the collage (inner front of your notebook) will be individually signed using an archival quality (iron gall) ink, and date-stamped with the date of collage.

RE: COLLECT COLLAGES
Every collage in my notebook series evolves from a very organic process: each postage stamp used is very carefully selected for colour and size to fit the random spaces and subtle colour progressions of your collage, creating an unrepeatable artwork, just for you. The stamps are glued into place with an acid-free, xylene-free adhesive then coated with a matt sealant, preserving some genuine fragments of postal history alongside your own recollections and notes. (You can read more about my process here: https://tanglecrafts.wordpress.com/process/ )

OPTIONAL ADD-ON
You may opt to select an extra accessory for your notebook from the drop-down list. The DIY pocket is printed with a full colour reproduction of one of my postage stamp collages. The DIY Index Tabs are printed on high quality 170gsm sticker paper. Choose from the following:

* DIY pocket - Rainbow
* DIY pocket - The Blues
* DIY Pocket - Natural
* DIY A-Z Index Tabs
* DIY Calendar Index Tabs

Additional inserts and add-ons are available separately: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TangleCrafts?section_id=6386953

What are your despatch times?

Please see individual listings for stated despatch times, or contact me for a quote if requesting a larger custom order. You will always be contacted in the case of any unforeseen delay in despatch of your order. 

As a general guide to processing times:
- ready-to-ship items will be despatched within 3 days
- smaller custom orders within 5-7 working days
- larger custom orders will be proportionally longer 

I aim to despatch all orders promptly, but please order in plenty of time if you require something for a specific date. If you are outside of the UK, please err on the side of caution and allow at least a month in addition to processing times listed per item.

How long will my order take to arrive?

Unless an upgrade is purchased at checkout, your order will be delivered by:

- 1st class post within the UK (usually 1-2 working days)
- Standard Airmail to any overseas destination (usually 7-14 working days)

Please note, delivery times can be longer at certain times of year (eg Christmas) when general volumes of post are higher.

Unfortunately there can occasionally be unforeseen delays within the various postal services, at any time of year. This is the exception rather than the rule, but please do allow up to a month for overseas delivery, before assuming lost.

Please contact me if you are worried about your delivery.

Can I track my order?

Please note, tracking is NOT included as standard with any order, due to the services offered by the Royal Mail. Proof of Posting is obtained for all items shipped.

For extra peace of mind, a shipping upgrade is available at checkout on most items, for an additional fee.
