This is the coolest present - for yourself, or someone else.
This approx 4" x 6" journal features:
- 100+ pages of white, lovingly hand torn, 67 lb, unlined acid free paper
- strong waxed linen thread binding the pages directly to the cover
- the long stitch binding method so pages lay flat as you fill them up
- cover and closure made from soft recycled leather making this journal ready for all the adventure you'll throw at it!
I have riveted a custom sterling plaque on the front with thick copper rivets, and soldered initials on one of the photos. Then I have antiqued it for a classic look. Any customization is possible - as shown, stamped phrase, small symbol... If you can imagine it, I can probably do it. On the other, it is solid sterling silver with silver rivets, also antiqued.
Feel free to ask about your idea. I can also have the journal made in other colors, such as tan, red, etc.

♥ This item is hand-stamped, and the letters will not be perfectly straight - it's part of the charm of this artisan item :) Additionally, stamping is a much deeper impression, and also blackened, to be much more visible than engraving. We have other hand-stamped items available in our store, if you would like to see more examples.
♥ All orders are packaged in our custom and professional Birth Designs cocoa-and-turquoise boxes for women, or cream-and-espresso boxes for men. They include an information card about Birth Designs. We are happy to include matching gift cards at no extra charge if requested.
