|Paper Emergencies after 10:00 AM, please call.
You should be prepared to complete your order online.
(Note: if desired, you CAN do this without credit card online and phone in payment.
This will send us the order through the standard electronic channels that consider inventory and efficient and accurate documenting of your order items. Taking the order manually over the phone creates opportunity for mistakes on both ends, takes up time and the increased delay may result in missing the pickup time by the carrier.
|How do you PACKAGE your papers?|
Order online without using Credit Card
Our site uses state-of-the art 256-bit encrypted SSL technology , if however you are still uncomfortable transmitting your credit card, personal check data, or using PayPal over the internet, go ahead and place your order online without any of the above. NO PAYMENT DATA NEED BE SENT!
If none of the above techniques satisfy your concerns over internet shopping, the only choice left is to type or write out your entire order on a sheet of paper and mail with personal check or money order.
|Are these Papers environmentally friendly?|
|All of our papers use renewable resources (the Lokta and Mulberry bushes for example regenerate fully every 5-6 years) and waste materials (Indian papers are made from a base of cotton rag waste, including blue jeans!). Handmade paper making uses centuries-old methods handed down from one generation to another. Our artisans are proud of their handiwork and would be pleased to know you are concerned about the effect of their vocation on our world and its ecosystems.|
|What about wholesale orders?|

|Do you have a catalog?|
|Short answer, no.
We are looking into it. The best and most current product info will always be the web site. A paradox of cost, timing, and currency of material exists with producing a printed catalog.
|What does GSM stand for?|
