Bookplates

 To receive FREE bookplates signed by Dannika Dark, carefully read the following.

WHAT ARE BOOKPLATES?
Bookplates are a self-adhesive sticker the author signs. Once the backing is peeled away, these can be placed inside the book. Some readers like them on the title page, but since they are yours, you can stick them where you like. Once adhered to the book, they cannot be removed without damage.


BOOKPLATE OPTIONS Height x length

  • Paperback size - 3" x 4"
  • Hardcover size - 3" x 5"


LIMIT

5 total per request (this means you can have any combination of the above sizes but are limited to five total, not 5 per size). Can you request more than five? Absolutely! But you'll need to send more than one SASE since the limit per envelope is 5 to ensure the machines at the post office do not damage them.


TO ORDER

Read the following so your request is processed correctly. The hardcover bookplates will not fit in a paperback, so indicate which size you want.

  • Include a note with how many bookplates you would like (limit to 5 total) and which size (paperback or hardcover). If no amount is specified, only one will be sent. If size is not specified, paperback will be sent.
  • Each bookplate will contain the author's signature. (If you want them personalized, print your name legibly to be included on the inscription.)
  • Send your request in a SASE (Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope) with a stamp for first-class mail up to 1oz.  
  • Forever stamps (or adding an additional stamp) are recommended because of frequent price changes. 
  • DO NOT SEND BOOKS OR OTHER ITEMS TO BE SIGNED.

Dannika Dark Bookplates

PO Box 261674

Plano, TX 75026

United States 


Note: Your envelope must accommodate the dimensions of the bookplates (#10 standard letter envelope 4.125 x 9.5 inches is preferred). Do not send money in lieu of correct postage. Do not send books or other items to be signed.


INTERNATIONAL REQUESTS

Live outside the US? If you are able to acquire first-class GLOBAL postage up to 1oz, great! Otherwise, we will accept your request without postage knowing that it's difficult for those outside to obtain it. Our post office will not process foreign postage, so do not place those on the Self-addressed envelope.

Important: Write your full mailing address, which should include your postal code and country of origin. Without this, we may not be able to complete your request.

 

HOW TO SEND A SASE (FYI)

  1. Address an envelope as if you are mailing it to yourself. Put your name and full address in the middle and leave the top left blank. (We will take care of that part.)  Do not seal.
  2. Add your stamp with the correct postage. 
  3. Place that envelope inside another envelope (you can fold in half). Include your note. 
  4. Seal up the outer envelope. Put your return address on the top left and mail it to the address provided above.

 

WHEN WILL YOU RECEIVE THEM?

Receipt can be up to six weeks. Variables that affect turnaround time include shipping times (both ways), the frequency in which we collect mail, processing time, inventory, weather, meteors, and a crack in the space-time continuum. 

Please do not contact the author to ask about the status. If it has been longer than the time indicated above, reach out, and we'll let you know if there's a delay. Please see more on the disclaimer below.

 

HOW DO I WRITE MY NOTE?

Well, legibly, for one. But here are two examples of how to supply your info. We are not accepting requests for character signatures or personalized notes from characters.

DISCLAIMER:

We are not responsible for lost or damaged mail. A new order request with a SASE will need to be sent. If you did not include the size and just wrote something like "2 bookplates", you will receive paperback size by default. Insufficient or missing postage cannot be mailed.
