How long will it take for my order to ship?
Typically, orders are processed and ship within 2 business days. On occasion, during peak holidays, sales, and new product releases, our processing time may be up to 12 business days. Please note that processing time is the time spent preparing your order prior to shipment. All apparel orders are made on demand and domestic orders can take up to 2 weeks to be delivered while international apparel orders can take up to 4 weeks. Apparel items will ship separately from other items.
Current processing times are always updated in our site header.
Domestic shipments are shipped via USPS and generally take approximately 2-3 business days to receive once shipped. We offer free U.S. domestic shipping via USPS for orders $50 and above. Please be aware that COVID-19 disruptions have impacted USPS processing times.
Upgraded UPS alternatives are also available. Orders selecting UPS shipping options are not subject to receive free shipping for orders $50 and above.
International shipments are shipped via USPS or UPS depending on selections at checkout. International shipping time frames vary based on courier.
We are not responsible for lost packages that are deemed as delivered.
Will a signature confirmation be required for my order to be delivered?
Most orders will not require a signature confirmation for delivery; however, there are two exceptions:
- Any orders containing a Leather Agenda
- Any order with a value above $150
We do this to better ensure the safe arrival of your order. If you will be unable to sign for your package, please email Customer Service at email@example.com to set up an alternative delivery option.
We do not require signature confirmation for international packages.
Currently, we offer International shipping via USPS in order to offer the best rate possible to our International Customers. International customers pay a flat fee for orders under 4 lbs, based on their shipping location. Once the order is shipped, an email with your tracking number will be sent to you.
Please be aware that COVID-19 disruptions have impacted USPS processing times. In rare situations, your package may also take longer to arrive due to customs checks, which are out of our control. Updates to these checks can only be given by the customs office or officials.
We also offer UPS shipping for international customers, which can be selected at checkout. If you would like your order shipped with another service, please email Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org for a rate quotation.
We are not responsible for lost packages that are deemed as delivered.
Customs fees and VAT amounts vary based on location, and are paid to your country of residence, not to Cloth & Paper. You may be subject to these fees based on the total value of your order. We recommend checking the rates for fees and taxes with your local customs or post office. We are not able to alter the value of your order.
COVID-19 Disruptions to International Shipping
International USPS Shipments outside of the United States and Canada are experiencing significant shipment delays in some cases as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. USPS packages are shipped via commercial airline flights, which are being cancelled and rerouted every day, causing mass delays and backups in international shipments. USPS is working actively to find new flights for these packages to ship on, as well as sourcing alternative methods to ship these packages.
Please keep this in mind if you are placing an order internationally. We have never experienced shipping delays to international customers prior to the COVID-19 crisis, and we appreciate your patience as we navigate this together. To see countries where shipments are most disrupted, please check the USPS's statement on International Shipment disruptions. However, disruptions extend beyond these countries as well, and we are seeing these delays affect our customers worldwide. Delays may be mitigated by upgrading to alternative expedited shipment options.
If your package is currently experiencing a delay, please contact our customer service team at email@example.com so that we can add your package to our list to monitor. We cannot cancel orders once they have left our facilities. We will not be able to process refunds for delayed orders until the package is sent back to us by the USPS, or until the package is received by you and returned to us.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we apologize for this disruption to our usual shipping times.

How do I log into my shop account?
Does my leather agenda have a warranty?
Your Cloth & Paper genuine leather agenda cover or folio is handmade using natural materials, which means no two pieces are the same. Due to the nature of leather, there may be some slight irregularities in the leather color, size of the grain, and texture. Each leather agenda will have some natural signage like wrinkles, blemishes and other markings. Enjoy your Cloth & Paper agenda for years to come by keeping it clean with a damp cloth or an alcohol-free wipe.
Cloth & Paper does not currently offer ring repairs. However, we always recommend using the push tabs on the end of your rings to open them. Pulling the rings open using the rings themselves can affect the tension and alignment and can eventually cause gaps.
When will you restock items?
What's my size?
Need help finding your size? Check out our Size Guide on each apparel product page. We recommend comparing the garment measurements to something similar you already own.
When will my apparel items arrive?
All apparel orders are made on demand and domestic orders can take up to 2 weeks to be delivered while international apparel orders can take up to 4 weeks. Please note that international customers will be responsible for customs fees, duty or taxes.
If you have any problems or questions in regard to your order, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I have non-apparel items in the same order as my apparel? Will they ship separately?
Orders containing non-apparel and apparel items will be shipped separately as our apparel will be produced and fulfilled at a separate location. You will receive two shipping notifications: one for your non-apparel item(s) and another one at a later date for your apparel item(s).
Embroidered apparel items can be machine-washed cold, inside out on a gentle cycle. Make sure to use a mild detergent and to wash with like-colors. Embroidered items can be dry-cleaned as well.
After washing, ensure that the item is not left to soak or lie in a pile while wet. It is advised to not ring out embroidered items and to tumble-dry them in a cool air setting.
What is your return policy?
Unopened items may be returned within 14 days of receipt. Refunds will only be provided for unopened items less the cost of return shipping. Shipping charges may be subtracted from the refund if the return reduces the original order below the free shipping threshold of $50 USD.
Items that are non-returnable and non-refundable include:
- Last Call and Archived items
- Personalized items
- Planner Consultations
- Subscription boxes
- Items that have been opened or used
- Items marked delivered more than 14 days ago
- Apparel and custom-print items are final sale. Should you receive an apparel or custom-print item that is defective or damaged, please reach out.
Returns received that fall outside of our return policy will not be refunded. If you have a question about a return, please email our Customer Service Team at email@example.com.
How do I start a return?
Returns must be initiated within 14 days of receipt, and require an authorization from our team prior to shipping your order back. To begin the return process, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I use store credit from a return towards a subscription box?
Cloth & Paper store credit is valid for shop purchases only, and cannot be used towards subscriptions.
What is your price adjustment policy?
We may offer discounted items and special promotions from time to time, which are valid while supply lasts. Discounted and promotional items are not eligible for price adjustments, refunds, or returns. C&P Last Call items, items from the Archive, and promotional products are final sale.
LOYALTY AND REWARDS POINTS
What can I earn reward points on?
All purchases made on the Cloth & Paper website are eligible to earn reward points.
Enrollment in the online shop reward program is not automatic. You will need to sign up separately for the reward program once you have activated your customer account. Points for orders placed before you signed up are not added automatically, but can be added by emailing your order numbers to email@example.com.
Loyalty program points are earned on each subscription box purchase via our separate subscription box loyalty program. You are automatically enrolled in the subscription box loyalty program when you place a subscription.
How are subscription box loyalty program points awarded?
How are online shop reward points awarded?
How can I view my points?
Shop reward point totals can be accessed through the “C&P Rewards” button in the bottom right hand corner of our website. On mobile browsers, it is a black button with a white star. This is also where you can sign up for the shop reward program.
You can view your point total for the subscription box loyalty program under your subscription box account, which you can log into here. You will also find this log in portal under the Monthly Subscriptions tab on our website.

How do I purchase a gift card?
When viewing our website, click the “Planner Shop” dropdown menu at the top of the page. Select “Gift Cards”. The default value is $10. Click the dropdown menu on the right side of the product listing to select another dollar amount for your gift card. Values range from $10-$500.
Looking for another way to shop gift cards? Click the magnifying glass in the top right corner of the page to access the search function. Type “Gift Cards” into the search bar, and the product listing will appear.
If I purchase a gift card, how does the email notification work? Should I enter my email address or the gift recipient's email address?
Great question! It depends on when you want the recipient to receive the gift card - now or later? If you want them to receive it immediately, enter their email address so it will go straight to them. Alternatively, if you’d like to surprise them with it at a later time, enter your email address. That way you can forward the email to them when you’re ready to give them the gift card.
A Cloth & Paper gift card is redeemed in the form of a unique code. The email address that it's sent to will not affect the code being applied - if the email goes to you and you forward it to the gift recipient, they will not have any problem redeeming it without your email address. The recipient will click a link in the email to "view gift card" and will receive their unique gift code.
Can I use a gift card to purchase a subscription?
Cloth & Paper gift cards are valid for shop purchases only, and cannot be used towards subscriptions. To give the gift of monthly Cloth & Paper deliveries, we recommend setting up a gift subscription. Please reach out to our Customer Service team at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding gifting.
