1. Consider Size
Standard blotters are great for blotting a personal check in one sweep; or the width of a journal page. The approximate blotting size is 2 ½ inches by 7 inches. $74, free shipping.
Baby blotters are perfect for blotting a signature. Blotting size is 1 ½ inches by 5 inches. $59 with free shipping.
2. Consider Color
Currently I am offering 4 colors. From left to right.
- Behr’s Scandinavian Red Mahogany; subtly reddish
- Minwax Walnut Gel Stain; a true “brownish” color
- Wood Kote J’eld Heritage Oak; warmer, slightly more orange than walnut; very nice.
- Natural Oak (no coloring), the polyurethane varnish adds a warm yellowing of the natural oak. My favorite.
3. Consider Knobs / Handles
The knobs you will see on the blotters on the inventory page can be switched with any of the knobs I have in stock.
Knobs that look great on rocker blotters are large oval or football/rugby ball shapes.
My favorite for standard sized is the large round polished brass with wide base pictured on the “natural” color blotter in the middle.
On the baby blotters I like the football/rugby ball shaped knobs like the one pictured on the far right.
5. Email me.
Choose your rocker blotter from the
page and email me to make sure it is available. Note the blotter number.
If there is a color/size/knob combination you would like but you don’t find it in the inventory, email me with your choices and if possible I will make one up for you.
6. I Will Reply.
I will give you the availability and probable ship date, upon payment.
Notes on Shipping:
Shipping is included in the price. I ship standard sized blotters by USPS Priority Mail in a flat rate medium size box, 11″ x 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Baby blotters are shipped in a smaller 4 x 6 x 6 box also by Priority Mail.
International shipping is outrageously expensive and completely undependable. I’ve lost too much money and I will not ship to international destinations.
7. Make Payment.
I will email you instructions to make payment via PayPal.
I will acknowledge receipt of payment.
If I am not travelling I will ship within 24 hours of receiving payment. If I am out of town I will email with the soonest possible ship date.
I will also email you the tracking information.
