when will something be back in stock?

As a small store, restocking depends on the popularity and ready availability of a particular product.  Here at The Scriptorium, stock quantity is limited and we prioritise constantly bringing in new items.  Unless noted on the product page, once an item sells out it will be removed from the website and not return to the store.  If you're interested in a particular item please do reach out and we can let you know the future of the product. 

will there be any more themed stationery boxes?

As of October 2021, the themed stationery boxes have been officially discontinued.  However, new stationery kits are in the works! 

No, as a small online store we don't offer bulk or wholesale. 

do you offer bulk/wholesale?

can i arrange for my order to be a gift for someone else?

Yes, of course!  We include a personalised tag and thank you message on each parcel of stationery goodies we send out, but we are more than happy to change that message to one of a birthday/holiday wish and make the name tag out to whoever you're gifting! Just send us a message when you're placing the order and we'll make sure to customise the parcel tag!
