What is Ink and Scribbles all about?
Ink and Scribbles supports children's well-being by providing support for parents to emotionally coach their children and tools to nurture their emotional health. We believe that collectively, we can use the power that comes from our role as parents for the positive benefit of our children's generation. Our focus is on the use of word, whether it be spoken or written, to connect parents with their children, to guide them to increased self awareness and emotional intelligence for wellbeing. Motherhood can feel imperfect and messy, but we can leave a positive and enduring mark on our children's emotional health.
Can I use your child wellbeing and emotional intelligence resources if I'm concerned about my child's mental health?
Our resources are a great help to children who are struggling with big emotions in a modern world and give support to their parents, who may not feel confident in knowing where to begin helping their child. They do not replace the advice of a medical professional and therefore in the event of serious mental health concerns, seek a professional opinion.
Books are A5 in size (handmade and professionally printed books). Printable files are usually formatted to A sizes. This means they can be printed in any A size, such as A5, A4, A3 etc. Our printable bundles are recommended to print in A4. Prints can be printed in an A size of your choice.
Where can I print digital purchases?
You can print your files at home. If you do so, we recommend you set your printer to high quality print settings. Alternatively, you could use a local or online printer service.
Can I share digital purchases?
Digital purchases from our shop give you unlimited personal use of that product. You may save the files to your computer. They are for personal use only, which means they are not for sharing or reselling. Please contact us if you would like to talk about using our products in a school or clinic settings and we can send you details of our Extended Use License for use with multiple children.
How long does it take for you to ship a physical item?
We aim to ship products within 3-5 days of purchase at most. 1 -3 days during non busy times is our usual processing time. Some of our physical products are lovingly handmade by us and therefore we need some flexibility due to the nature of the production process. At particularly busy times it might take a little longer to process your order. We will let you know if there are significant delays. Digital products can be instantly downloaded after purchase from the link in your confirmation email.
We ship products via Royal Mail 1st Class. Because most items are handmade and we want them to arrive in the same condition we sent them, we package them accordingly. For some items that may mean they cannot be posted through the letter box, due to packaging box size.
Tell me more about the materials you use.
We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible and so we aim to use recycled and recyclable materials if we can. The feel and texture of our products is important to us, so we use high quality card stock and Kraft recycled card and boxes. We believe your sense of touch contributes to your wellbeing, which is why we have chosen quality, natural materials. Some people have asked us why we don't laminate some of our products, but again, we prefer a natural feel when focusing on wellbeing.
Tell me more about the production process.
We hand make and print some items ourselves. We source some of the items, such as recycled boxes and card stock but we create the content and print here in our home office in South Wales, UK. Card sets, such as our Affirmation Boxes, are cut to size by us too! Lots of hours and love go in to our products. Products that are not handmade are still designed by us, but printing and production is outsourced by our brilliant printing partners here in the UK.
Can you ship overseas?
We are in the U.K and currently ship within the UK and to USA, Canada, Australia and NZ from our website. If you are not in these countries, please do visit our Etsy shop, as the shipping costs for other countries can be worked out through their checkout system.

How can I pay for an order?
When you checkout you will be given the option of paying by card via Square or Paypal, which accepts all major payment debit and credit cards.
