Do you accept wholesale orders for customised notebooks or corporate stationery?

Yes, we do and we would love to work with you to design something just for your company! Please contact us directly for more information and to discuss your needs. You may also email us at support@lineae.co. As a guide, a project for a customised product usually takes a minimum of 8-10 weeks from conception to delivery. 

 

Can you explain the cost of the products sold at Līneae?

Līneae sources products from all over the world, focusing on smaller artisanal studios and family owned businesses where items are manufactured locally in their country, and often finished by hand, if not completely hand made. Artworks are designed by the creator of these brands themselves, and they produce in small batches, making only a limited number of these notebooks and pens.

We are a huge supporter of ethical brands so you will also find sustainable products in our collections where everything from the materials used, to the method of productions are done in the most sustainable possible way. These products are of higher quality, designed to be sustainable, and have less impact on our planet.

Līneae's products are priced according to the Recommended Retail Price (RRP) as advised by our producers and artisans. Please note that this dollar figure may vary slightly depending on the foreign exchange rates on any day. 

If you have further questions about this, please feel free to contact us for more information.

 

Are products sold at Līneae eco-friendly? Are they made of recycled or environmentally friendly materials?

All paper goods sold at Līneae are made with FSC paper at the minimum - this means paper that is certified to come from a sustainable renewable source. Some are also made from recycled products such as plant waste (for paper) and recycled leather - these details are available in the product specifications for each item. We also stock products that are printed using vegetable inks or other eco-friendly alternatives.

We try as much as we can to bring in products that are made not only from eco-friendly materials, but also using environmentally friendly processes that leave a smaller footprint on the environment. This is one of the main reasons we choose to work with smaller studios that produce products in small batches and often by hand. These studios and small producers try to work locally within their communities as much as possible to reduce their impact on the environment and also to contribute back to their livelihoods. 

For examples, you can read more about some of the brands we represent here and here.

We are continuously working to further refine our product selection to ensure that the materials and processes used are as sustainable as possible. As a business, we try to use recycled, or compostable packaging and minimise packaging where possible.

 

Why do some of your products such as greeting cards, and notebooks not come with an external sleeve or packaging?

We, alongside with most of our lovely producers and brands have chosen to opt out of having external sleeves or plastic packaging for our products where possible. This is to reduce wastage from unnecessary packaging. However, rest assured that your order as a whole will still be packaged to ensure that your items arrive to you safely and in good condition. 

 

What sort of packaging do you use to send out orders? 

In an effort to care for our planet by reducing unnecessary waste and packaging, we are up-cycling and reusing packaging materials to pack your orders where possible. This includes carton boxes, tissue wrap, and packaging fillers. Hence, you may receive packaging materials that may not bear our brand name but that is ok as we take upcycling seriously and believe strongly in reducing wastage.

In turn, we encourage you to up-cycle, re-use, compost and recycle your packaging where possible as well. You may notice that some of our cards and notebooks do not come with protective sleeves or packaging to reduce on unnecessary packaging. We also endeavour to use compostable or recyclable mailers where suitable to have a smaller impact on the environment. We believe that every effort, no matter how small, plays a part in caring for our planet.
