World Wide Shipping

Shipping Explained:

Most of our customers are not millionaires so we use the Post Office for shipping which we think offers the best value. Sometimes it takes a little longer but in all our experience it always gets there. If your order is over €50 we recommend registering the parcel.

If you can purchase an item online we have it in stock and can normally ship within one working day.

Our rates are calculated based on every item weighing over 450g if it is larger than A4 or over 30mm thick. This means that if you order for example 10 large sheets of paper 630x970mm that weigh 40g each it will calculate it as 4.5kg instead of 400g. In a situation like this, email me (, tell me what you want to order, or send me a screen shot of your order, with your address and I will calculate the best rate for you. I know it sounds like a crazy system but it works !

Liberties Papers is amazing! Paul and Sheila have an incredible selection of decorative paper on offer. I love the sheer range and diversity of their collection and I particularly like their Thai and Japanese Chiyogami paper. The quality of their products is fantastic and their service is second to none. I can’t stay away!

Dear Sheila and Paul,

I would like to thank you for your Japanese papers. This was my first order from Liberties Papers, following advice of my colleague Nina de Angelis (Freelance Book and Paper Conservator) that you meet two years ago at the NLI. She told me a lot about the good quality of your papers for conservation treatment. When I opened my package (just before this email) I was very satisfied and so was she (because we share a workshop) .
I wish you a very good day,
