Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19

Expected delays due to COVID-19.

We are experiencing minor delays across all orders due to COVID-19. In this new environment, our team ships out outstanding orders every Monday morning EST. 

For all custom orders, delays may vary from 1-4 weeks as our printers are working reduced hours, with reduced staff, while prioritizing print jobs for essential services. 

If you have questions about your order/ETA please reach out to nick@maurele.com. We thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. 

COVID-19 precautions.

Our founders are packing/shipping every single order during this time as the entire Maurele team works from home. We are taking all the necessary health precautions to ensure goods are handled safely (including masks, gloves, and sanitizer).

Why is my card being declined when I try to place an order?

We are unable to tell why your card was declined on our end, but there are a few things you can do to see why your payment didn’t go through. First, check that your card’s billing details (such as the security code and billing address) match what you’ve entered into our system. Your card issuer also may have declined your payment or put a hold on the card for fraud prevention. We recommend calling your card issuer to resolve the issue.

How do I use a promo code?

After you’ve added an item to your cart, you will be able to enter a promo code upon checkout.

Do you offer gift wrapping?

We don’t offer gift wrapping in any formalized way just yet, but please email us after completing your order, and it will be our pleasure to wrap the gift and include a handwritten note on your behalf.

Paper & Ink

What type of printing do you do?

We print offset, digitally and letterpress.   

What’s the difference between all of the papers?

We curate & source a selection of fine papers from sustainable North American, UK and Japanese mills that use recycled pulp, advanced water conservation techniques and harness wind power for electrical energy.

We offer 3 main paper types:

Smooth:

Smooth with a sturdy heft, this flat paper allows the pen to glide over it with ease - whether one’s grip is light or heavy. 

Speckled:

This smooth-finished paper is flecked with hints of beige and light grey, like a bird’s egg or flour tortilla. 

Textured:

Subtle grooves give this paper a natural texture and a soft finish - like the bark of a tree or footprint in the soil.

Where is your leather sourced?

All of our leathers are sourced from ethical tanneries in Spain and Italy.

How can I find the status of my order?

How long does it take to receive personalized orders?

It takes us anywhere from 3 to 5 business days to print personalized orders.

If I order other products from Maurèle in addition to a personalized item, will everything ship together?

Typically, all personalized and non-personalized orders will ship together.
