Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of paper do you use?
At Small Town Studio, I am committed to using paper with at least 30% post-consumer waste content. There are some items that are created from upcycled papers that were either gifted to me or came from previous collections. I strive to use entire sheets as often as possible. For example, what to do with all the triangles leftover from lining envelopes? Make circle pennants!
How should I store my items?
Please store your paper products out of the direct sun and ideally in an archival box. Overtime, paper can fade, especially when it has been manufactured with natural dyes.
What is Lokta?
Nepalese handmade lokta paper is made from the fibrous inner bark of high elevation evergreen shrubs primarily from two species of Daphne (plant) (Greek: meaning "Laurel"): Daphne bholua and Daphne papyracea, known collectively and vernacularly as lokta bushes. (Wikipedia.com)
How do I request a Custom Order?
Simply submit the contact form with as many details as possible and I will reply within 24-48 hours with initial ideas. From there, you will be sent a sketch with color swatches of planned design for approval. Once design has been approved, please allow 7-10 business days for production.
Do you sell in stores?
Currently, Small Town Studio only sells online and at pop-up markets / craft fairs around New England. If you are a retailer and would like to discuss wholesale or consignment opportunities, please be in touch!
