    Frequently Asked Questions

    We are currently in the process of manufacturing it and your order is expected to ship in mid-October 2024 (or earlier, if possible). Once manufacturing is complete, we work as quickly as possible to get all orders out. Please note that priority shipments take precedence.

    We have successfully shipped four dated collections for the subsequent year using the pre-order model, with increasing complexity each year. Our team works hard to get them to you as soon as possible, and can't wait for you to dive into your new H&O book!
    We use UPS or Canada Post when we ship parcels, both domestically and internationally.
    We will otherwise ship your pre-order together with in-stock items, so that we can reduce packaging waste and cut down on unncessary carbon emissions. Please order separately if you would like in-stock items to arrive sooner. You may contact us so that we adjust your order.
    Please get in touch with us as soon as possible about an address change. We will do our best to get this information updated before your order is sent out. Email hello@hemlockandoak, and please include: your order number, new address and any other details. You can also respond to your order confirmation email!

    Planner covers are in development, but we do not have a set date for their availability yet. This product has been designed from scratch using a new material, so we want to make sure the quality is superb and are cautious about overcommitting before they are ready.

    2025 Weekly Inserts are in development and will be released at a later date!
    Utilizing sustainable materials that are backed with plenty of research is one of our core values. We are constantly investing in new material options, and push the limits of our budget to bring them to you! The 2025 collection includes books with biodegradable LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers, made from wood taken from responsibly managed forests and with a 50% lower water impact, with an FSC-certified paper backing.

    Our other sustainability practices include:
    • Using zero-waste labels for printing and sticker-making
    • Shipping without plastic and minimizing/vigorously recycling our plastic usage in our own facility
    • Using materials with post-consumer waste and recycled content
    • Partnering with FSC certified, Ancient Forest Friendly mills that practice responsible forest management
    • Ensuring that our materials are renewable and recyclable wherever we can
    • Making our books in Canada to minimize our carbon footprint
    We believe that ethical labour, sourcing, and production consists of the following:

    • Adequate breaks, vacation, and sick leave
    • Safe working conditions
    • Strong employment standards and employee rights
    • Equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, race, disability, sexuality, or religion
    • Fair wages and benefits
    • Manufacturing with lower environmental impact
    • Sourcing safe materials

    For this reason, we choose to partner primarily with Canadian manufacturers due to the Canadian Human Rights Act, Employment Equity Act, and the Canada Labour Code.

    Our personal workplace is small, but provides benefits, flexible hours, and fair pay for all team members. It is woman-owned by Tia Masic, and operates in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

    Perfect for everyday use!

    I bought a dated minimal planner and it’s been perfect for what I wanted to use it for every day. The size isn’t too big or small for me, and all the components have been helpful. I am considering buying an undated one next, just because I like to decorate and design my planner.

    Best purchase off an IG ad

    I love this planner so far. The paper quality and weight is lovely. So much better than the paper used by big brands. The vertical layout is new to me, but I am finding it very helpful to visualize the days of the week this way. The grey color of all the lines is present enough to be useful but not overwhelming. I am getting used to the end/beginning of the month reflection prompts, but I think it's opening a nice space for mindfulness. I hope I can keep it up during the year. The only downside I've noticed so far is that between the reflection pages and the monthly calendar spread, there are two many pages between the last week of the month and the first. This does not deter me from wanting to purchase the same planner next year!

    Historically I am so obnoxious about my planner choices and look forever to find the perfect one. I have been so happy with my H&O purchase. It seriously checks all of the boxes…compact size, thick paper, helpful mindfulness tools without being overwhelming and efficient, and vertical timeline for weekly pages. I also loved all the fun options you could add on to customize your planner! Will definitely be repurchasing! Thanks for making a great product.

    Exactly what I wanted, might try a different one next year though

    I love the quality of the planner it’s exactly what I was looking for in a book-like planner. I think I made the personal mistake of choosing one with pages that have only one line between hours, so it’s a little hard to actually reflect what is happening and when.

    Again, I think this is totally on me. I’ll absolutely be looking into the H&O catalog deeper in the next 6 months to prep for next year now that I know a bit more of what to expect.

    Only a month in, but the paper and binding quality are great so far. The print looks excellent, the cover is very plain just as I hoped, and the color is fantastic. Love your work and I really appreciate that it’s out there as an option for a different format of planner.
