~ Bookmarks Designed Not To Fall Out Of Books ~
Magnetic Bookmarks are for good old fashioned paper books.
Our magnetic bookmarks are long and thin, folded in the middle, with paired magnets on the inside, hence 'Magnetic Bookmark'.
The idea is that, you open one up and slot it over your page, the magnets attract each other and stick together, tightly gripping the page.
Even if you drop or shake the book, the bookmark won't fall out.
Once you use a magnetic bookmark, you won't want to go back to any other sort.
Clip it sideways over the page and it will mark the line you are on as well as the page.
Useful for marking that place in a manual you know you are going to have to keep refering back too.
.... works on knitting and cross stitch patterns too.
This bookmark is 10cm (4") long and 4cm (1.5") wide.
As for quality - think glossy greetings card.
The picture is of a wizard casting a spell, stood near a stone circle.
The back has the artist's ie our contact details on it.
The image's background is from an encaustic (wax) painting by Chris Carrick ie it was painted with wax using an iron and it's her you are buying from.
If you would like to know about how the original painting was done, do an internet search for Chris How to paint with an iron or Chris encaustic, either will bring up the site.
It tells you all about encaustic painting. What it is, how it works and how to get started yourself.
......plus it shows off more of her work.
We have more magnetic bookmarks available in our eBay Shop.
You'll find them in their own department or you can do a shop search for 'magnetic bookmark' using the search box near the Almost Abstract logo, above.
We do give postage discount on joint purchases where we can, so it's worth a few seconds checking if we have anything else you fancy.
We aim to send ALL parcels out the day we receive your payment ie in the next available post, but if you thinking about buying something else from one of our other listings, let us know so we can combine postage - if we can - cos we're good like that AND we promise to pack everything well for posting (shipping).
Posting / Shipping Discounts
If you are buying more than one thing from us (especially if they are from different listings within our eBay Shop) and you'd like us to combine the postage for you, just ask.
Add everything you want to your 'Shopping Basket'.
Once it's full click the 'Request Total' button within the shopping basket. We'll send you a revised invoice as soon as we can, only please bear in mind that there are only two of us and we're not sat in front of the computer 24/7 (even if it does feel like it sometimes).
Buyers from outside the UK don't get a shopping basket, but if you click though to the payment page, you should find a link to ask us to combine shipping, before you get as far as actually paying.
We use 1st or 2nd class postage (your choice) where possible but we will send things by Royal Mail Special Delivery, if you pay their extra charges. However, in our experience, first class will get things to most UK mainland addresses next day, anyway.
We don't have a bricks and mortar shop, but you are welcome to call and collect items, if you live or work close enough. Only please get in touch first, don't just turn up on the doorstep, give us chance to make sure one of us is in when you call.
None UK Shipping
For those of you wanting delivery outside the EU, our postage and packaging charges are just that - Postage charges and the cost of suitable packing.
If there are any taxes or import duty due your end, then they are your responsibility.
If we can help by sending two parcels instead of one, let us know.
The prices shown are for normal airmail shipping. If you would prefer surface mail (bearing in mind that that can take up to 12 weeks to get to you) let us know before you buy and we'll work out the cost.
We accept payment by cheque, postal order, bank transfer or Paypal, but in UK pounds only. We also take credit/debit cards via a third party merchant service, but online, not over the phone.
Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask. We'll help if we can.
You'll find a direct email address under 'Business Seller Information' or you can use ebay's messaging system. You'll find a link at the bottom of this page under 'Questions and answers about this item'.
After saying all that, you must like the idea, or you wouldn't still be here. If you fancy this for yourself, have a use for it or would like it as a pressy for someone special, click the button above, promise to pay and let eBay take it from there.
