Our original illustration features a whimsical whale swimming above the name on this nautical-themed bookplate. It makes for a darling way to label baby's first library.

This bookplate is designed to be used for gifting a book in coordination with our Whale of a Shower baby shower invitations (https://www.etsy.com/listing/106471515/boy-baby-shower-invitation-whale-baby). The wording can be adjusted for more standard usage, if desired.

All of our bookplates are printed on lovely 70 lb adhesive-backed paper that is both acid and lignin free. Simply peel and place!

Simple color changes can be made to this item by purchasing the listing found here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/244704361.
