Shop Updates

December Order Processing Times Will be Increasing

We’re approaching the busiest time of the year for Cantrips Media. I wanted to give as many people as I could a quick update. I am due to deliver a baby in early December, which means this holiday season offers a new set of challenges. Here’s what that means for your order this holiday season.
  • PLEASE place holiday gift orders as soon as possible. While I will still be working, I cannot guarantee order processing or shipping times in December. If you are planning on ordering for the holiday season, it is even MORE important this year that you order as soon as you can. Not only can we run out of stock, but I may not be available to restock and ship on time this holiday season.
  • Restocking will occur weekly until December. As per usual, I will still be maintaining stock as much as I can until December. I have always tried to restock weekly and will continue to do that until the baby arrives. But, once the baby arrives, things may fall behind. I will focus on notebooks over all other items. It may mean page packs and accessories may not be available at times. I WILL be restocking them eventually, but there may be delays during the busy season.
  • Order Processing and Shipping Times Will INCREASE in December. We will still be taking orders in December. But order processing times will increase to 7 days. Shipping times will remain the same: 3-5 days (depending on your chosen shipping method). So order sooner rather than later!
  • Regular Order Processing and Shipping Times will Return in Early 2023. No set dates on this one. It will depend on many factors (like how we deal with my husband going back to work, how the baby is faring, etc). However, the plan is to return to our typical 3-5 day processing and 3-5 day shipping times as soon as I am able.
There’s no such thing as maternity leave when you own a small business of one. So he needs of my family will come first. But don’t fret, I have some volunteers amongst family and friends who will be assisting.
 
Thank you for your patience during this time. Apologies for 2 emails in one week! (I promise emails only come when there are updates. I try hard not to spam inboxes.) If you have any questions, please use the button below. It will take you to my contact form so that you can email me directly.

Happy Adventuring,

Kylie

New Paper Changes

(Updated From Oct 2022)

Over the course fo the next few months, we will be tranisitioning to a new type of paper. Currently this mainly effects DM sized journals and page packs, but will slowly affect Player's notebooks too. 

Essentially, we've hired a local printing company to print and cut our pages for us. Don't worry we'll still be doing everything else (covers, punching and assembly), but this allows us more time to design new things for the shop! It's very hard to match commercial paper and consumer paper types, but in the end we found a paper type that we actually like more. (Also this saves us printer and paper cutting headaches.)

What this means for you:

  • If you purchased a notebook prior to 2022, your paper type will be slightly glossier and whtier than the new paper. 
  • The new paper should fit your notebook BETTER than before (no more slightly off cuts from our hand paper trimmer).
  • We've found that unless you are comparing them side by side, the differeneces are not major, but we know that this can bother some. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We predict all paper to be fully transitioned by early 2023. 

If you have questions, or concerns, please email us directly at contact@cantripsmedia.com!
