Update On Your Travelbook Order.
about 1 year ago – Thu, Mar 02, 2023 at 10:26:58 AM

Hello all!

Please read this! 

I want you to know, I am working on solutions to our shipping dilemma and will ensure you get your reward! 

The summary of the issue is as follows. 

  • Back in January, we dropped off a huge bunch of orders with USPS and we  discovered that they did not get scanned and no info was provided about there whereabouts. 

  • We did not know how many orders were affected by this status, and so we had you email us to get a gauge. From those emails we were able to pinpoint the specific batch and we determined it was around 200. So with 200+ units that disappeared, we discovered that we are short on the ballpoint pens. Our theory is that our supplier mixed up the fountain pens and ballpoint pens. That means, if you dont mind receiving a fountain pen instead, we will gift that to you so that you do not have to wait further. 

  • If not, more pens are in production and we will get the shipping expedited to us. It will likely take another month until those arrive here in Portland..

We will be responding to your emails today and tomorrow, please respond back indicating if you do not mind a fountain pen or are willing to wait for the ballpoint pen. 

Now, as for the batch of 50+ orders that were dropped off on my porch, we are duplicating those today and will ship them out Monday. You will know if you are a part of this bunch because your tracking will show that it was delivered to Portland...

More to come, check the comments for smaller updates, 

Thank you! 


Resolving Shipping Issues, or Orders With Errors!
about 1 year ago – Tue, Feb 14, 2023 at 03:31:45 PM

Hello all!
This update pertains to those still attempting to receive there reward, or those who received it incorrectly.

1. Shipments from one of our international shipping batches still shows a status of "To Be Dropped Off", OR "Waiting to be Scanned". It is a batch from January 17th. There may be some domestic orders in that batch as well. From our history with USPS, this indicates that this particular batch was not scanned and is unnacounted for. We have printed and shipped all of the orders so they were indeed dropped off and sent by us. 

If this is your situation, what we need from you is the following: please email us with the subject line "Travelbook Shipping Issue". We will do what it takes to get your status to be delivered. Typically we try to cancel the original order, and then duplicate and ship it again. ( [email protected] )

2. Now if you are having seperate issues, please email us with the subject line "Travelbook Issue". ( [email protected]

Strangely, our spam filter caught dozens and dozend of email inquiries that came through our website. We are sorry for the delay in responding that this caused. 

Emailing us directly with said subject lines will help us prioritize your situation and bring it to a happy resolution! 
Thank you!

1779... AND International Shipping Update!
over 1 year ago – Wed, Dec 21, 2022 at 11:49:12 AM


THE climax of the United States Revolutionary War, 


the number of orders we have shipped thus far...

Hey bookish friends
As I am writing this, we have shipped precicely 1779 shipments. We are thrilled by their reception. See the social media tags below.  

International Shipping Update

In order to avoid the mishandling of orders amidst the chaos of Christmas shipping logistics, we are going to begin shipping to international backers starting in January. Shipping internationally can feel like murphys law... and so we want to make the process as swift and straightforward as possible for everyone. 

A few important details for our international backers.

Receiving your package will mostly likely require action on your part. Most United States shipping providers hand-off packages to your local postal service. Your courier may try to contact you via phone call or email to pay customs fees/verify information. OR there may be a point in the tracking updates when the updates have stopped. The majority of the time, this means that your local post office has your package, and is waiting for you to come retrieve it.

 Your local courier cannot update the tracking becasue they are totally disconnected from our systems. So be prepared! You may have to present yourself to your local courier with a valid ID in order to retrieve your package. Let us know if you have any questions. 

We will do our best to make sure all of you wonderful people receive your items! We are so thankful for you. 

We will check in again soon! 
Much love
-Westley & team

Commencing Fulfillment.... 🚀
over 1 year ago – Mon, Dec 05, 2022 at 10:38:29 AM

Hey all! We hope you are well.

Due to delays with our packing/box supplier, we have not been able to begin packing orders. But the good news is that we will begin tomorrow when they deliver the boxes to us!

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee Christmas time deliveries for some of our distant international friends. But our domestic friends should receive packages by Christmas time. 

Thank you for your patience and goodness. I will update you again this week with some photos of the wild operations/fulfillment.
Travelbooks, stationery, pens, notebooks, stickers... they are looking FABULOUS. We are thrilled to get them into your hands.  

Much love, talk soon
