Option to Personalize

This journal is from our "READY TO SHIP" line of journals. This means that this journal IS able to be PERSONALIZED with a name, etc, on the front cover of up to 15 characters; but IS NOT further customizable. Ready To Ship journals are made with the same high-quality materials, and the same hand-crafted attention to detail as all of our journals. Whereas our Customizable line of journals are designed by you and Made-To-Order; Ready To Ship journals are designed by me and handcrafted prior to your purchase. This also means that they come with a built-in discount and will ship faster than customized varieties. This journal CANNOT be purchased with Add-ons from the "More Customizations" section; or be customized in any way beyond cover embossing of 15 characters. If you would like a fully customized journal, please shop in our "CUSTOMIZABLE JOURNALS" section.

Each journal is hand-picked, hand-cut, and every page is hand-folded and sewn together.

-Quality leather: durable, full-grain, USA tanned leather.
-Acid-Free Paper: Thick, high quality, and acid-free paper, so your memories and artwork stand the test of time.
-Waxed linen thread: High-quality, thick, waxed linen thread that will keep your journal securely bound for a lifetime.

✔️100% USA-MADE
All of our leather is USA tanned leather. And all of our journals are made in Idaho, USA.

This handcrafted leather journal features a diagonal fold-over flap with a beautiful vintage-style clasp, and a bronze lock and key. The outcome is functionality with a beautiful, vintage feel. All of my books and journals are made to last a lifetime (at least!) And the leather only gets better with time.

SEWN BOUND - This journal is hand-bound using a historical bookbinding technique of sewing the pages into the spine, which gives a lovely old-world look and feel. This binding method is durable and permanent.
Refillable bound journals are also available in both the Ready To Ship and Customizable sections.

•We use an old-fashioned style of personalizing your leather, called Embossing. Heat is pressed into your journal cover, leaving a gorgeous and rustic looking imprint that is permanent.

•See examples of embossing throughout the listing photos on any listing.

•If you select the option of personalized embossing from the drop-down menu, that will include up to 15 characters of embossing. Please enter your personalization in the Personalization Box.

•Alpha-numeric font is all caps, Times Roman.
Special characters available include: . ' , # @ ? ! " $ % & * : > < ; / \ •Names, initials, etc, typically go in the lower right corner by default on most journal designs; unless your specific journal design, size, and personalization length warrant a different location. If you have a specific location you would like your embossing to go, you must message me or indicate the desired location in the order notes. If specific instructions are not left by you, formatting and location discretion will be left up to myself, and determined by what is most appropriate given your specific journal design and personalization. ===== SIZE: ===== 6" x 9" ======= PAGES: ======= BLANK MIXED MEDIA: Thick, 80lb, high-quality, acid-free, medium tooth, blank mixed media paper: suitable for ink writing, drawing, pastels, charcoal, paints, and even very light watercolor. Holds ink well and is bleed-proof to the other side. (120 pages front and back) ========== LEATHER: ========== This journal comes in RUSSET. See leather descriptions below if you would like more information. Our leathers are USA tanned, premium hides chosen for their rustic yet beautiful character. After working with hundreds of various hides and types of leathers, these are the leathers that we couldn't eliminate due to their natural beauty. Due to the nature of the authentic leather hides, there will always be variation and uniqueness from one journal to the next. Each hide will have some degree of "pull-up," which refers to color variation where the leather is creased or bent; which gives a very rustic or distressed look. Pull-up creases go away with time or with rubbing the leather by hand. Following are descriptions of our leather varieties: RUSSET - A golden medium brown leather with some color variation between lighter browns, golden, and sometimes reddish tones. Beautiful light golden tan pull-up when leather is creased. BISON - A medium-dark brown with gorgeous lighter tan pull-up marks where the leather is creased. MAHOGANY - A semi-glossy solid burgundy-brown leather, without very much color variation or pull-up. Some might consider this our least rustic or distressed looking leather, yet it does still have some color variation and a slight rustic look. DRIFTWOOD - This leather has a ton of color variation between lighter tan to medium brown to darker brown areas, all along the spectrum of sandy and woodsy brown color tones. Some hides will be more covered in the darker brown, but color range and variation is similar. These hides have a very pronounced pull-up effect: you will notice very pronounced color variation in areas that are creased. ========================================================= FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders $35 and up! ========================================================= ================================================================== To see all of my books, journals, and refills, browse my shop here: --------------->
