Frequently asked questions about WeAreBoundTogether

I gladly accept custom work similar to the styles you see in my shop. Such customizations may include colour of leather or thread, size of the book or number of pages.

Feel free to contact me if you require something more specific. Keep in mind that custom orders take longer to prepare. Please leave at least 2 weeks for production, depending on the size and quantity of the project. Large quantities may take longer.

Please refer to shop listings for items that are already customizable.
At this time I do not make refillable journals/sketchbooks as my binding technique does not lend itself to that. The decorative stitching on the spine of the book is also functional, it is what holds the book together. Each stitch would need to be cut and the new pages sewn back in.
Yes! I can add a title page to most custom books. You have your choice of printed (https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/253600967) or hand painted (https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/253594705) title pages. Please keep in mind that this will add extra time to your book production and I need to be in contact with you for finalization on proofs. Please see listings for more details.
Adding initials to leather takes certain tools and techniques. At this time I cannot offer this service.

A title page is a great way to add a personal touch to any custom journal, and is not as limiting as engraving/burning. Please see previous questions for more details.
Most of my listings include options for upgraded shipping. These include tracked and XpressPost options. XpressPost, although expensive, is the only one with guaranteed delivery times. I do not do next day delivery. The charges are based on Canada Post's rates and are for the shipping costs only.
All my books are wrapped in brown kraft paper and tied up with ribbon because it's fun getting gifts, even if it's for yourself. On a number of occasions I have included notes to the recipient from the purchaser. This is no problem to send a few lines and is at no extra cost. If you would like to include such a note please include what you want to say in the "note to seller" when purchasing from my Etsy shop.
My blank journals come in two different paper weights, 70lb and 98lb. The 70lb weight is great for sketching, drawing, and writing. The 98lb paper is quite thick and in addition to sketching, is also great for light water media work (watercolour, ink, acrylic, etc). The 98lb paper is also much more sturdy and is an excellent weight for adding pictures, ticket stubs and other memorability to it. Both are acid free and archival.

70lb weight can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/WeAreBoundTogether?ref=1549470§ion_id=11549470

98lb weight can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/WeAreBoundTogether?ref=1549470§ion_id=19017612
I am very sorry to have to request such personal information as a phone number. This is a requirement of Canada Post and will only be used for the XpressPost shipping upgrade.

The phone number of the recipient is required by Canada Post. It will help with any customs delay issues.

If a phone number is not provided, the on time guarantee will be void.
The sizes of journals which I make are located in the "sections" tabs in my shop.

They include:
4"x6" available in 70lb sketch paper
5.5" x 7" available in 70lb sketch, 98lb mix media or lined pages
6"x9" 140lb watercolour paper
8"x10" 70lb sketch paper

It may be possible to make a journal slightly smaller than the ones listed above, however the 8" x 10" is the largest I can do at this time.
