You are free to use just about anything! There are a few exceptions though. Loose or dangling materials, materials that smudge or could be transfered to hands and other sketchbooks, glitter, ties, and strong scents may prevent your sketchbook from being included in the Library. Abrasive, sharp, or hazardous materials are prohibited. If you use glue, ensure that it is completely dry before you send it in, and do your best to make sure no glue is exposed. With changes in humidity glue can become sticky again, and make your pages stick together! Decoupage at your own risk. Over time, pages can adhere together, even if they seem to be dry and non-sticky when you send it in. It's good keep in mind that your sketchbook could be handle quite a bit, and to avoid delicate materials. Our Librarians will thank you!
We do not offer refunds of any kind.
