Things you might be wondering

Are your products eco-friendly?

We'd like it if our little ones can grow up on a greener planet so we do our best to help it get that way. We print using vegetable-based inks onto FSC Certified papers, our wooden products are created with environmentally-friendly FSC Certified birch plywood and all of our packaging is either recycled, recyclable, biodegradable or compostable. We've written some more here about our sustainability values.

There are tiny flecks on my prints - are they supposed to be there?

As we print onto recycled papers, the finish has flecks of fibres in it - this gives the product an organic, natural feel which is just the way we like it.

Are your products made in the UK?

We are a small online store based in the UK. All of our designs are created by us and we use UK-based suppliers for all our printing and packaging needs.

Do you ship outside of the UK?

We currently only ship to the United Kingdom but do message us if you are looking to place an order and live outside of the UK and we can look into delivery costs for you.

How long will my order take to arrive?

How much does delivery cost?

How can I track my order?

I'm not happy with my order. Can I return it?

Your name and address will need to be included within your return to enable it to be processed. Return postage will need to be a recorded or tracked service - Paper & Bean can't be held responsible for any lost return items.

Where did the name Paper & Bean come from?

Our favourite way to relax at the end of a busy day is sitting with a book or magazine - Paper - and a coffee in hand - Bean. It's as simple as that!
