Amy was so great to work with! She responded quickly to my request to create add custom text to my postcard and had them printed and in the mail in a couple of days. But most importantly there're beautiful! Printed on thick quality card stock, in not worried about them getting damaged in the mail.
Thank you so much Amy!

I love making custom hand-bound books! They make wonderful gifts, and most books are perfect to use as guest books, scrapbooks, sketchbooks, and journals. Customize the cover art, cover paper, page paper, or even provide your own vintage cover.

Turn around time for custom work is between 1 and 3 weeks, plus shipping time.
Most items are mailed wrapped in kraft paper, tied with raffia, ribbon, or hemp, with a gift tag. If you require something more, please let me know and I'll work with you to make it happen.
All items are one of a kind and made in a smoke-free / pet-free home with my own two hands, right here in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

The one exception are greeting cards and postcards which are reproductions of my original work, and are printed by me in my studio.
What kind of pen should I use for my book?

The weight and light tooth of the page paper makes it suitable for pencil and ink. Sharpies are discouraged - their acidic chemicals shorten the life of your book, and they often seep through paper.

A regular ballpoint pen is okay in a pinch, however I recommend an archival / ph neutral pen (Micron or Faber-Castell are two great and readily available brands). The inks in these pens are meant to last. They write softly and do not create indents in the pages like ballpoint. You can find many color choices at your local crafts or art supply store, or online.

For black pages, I recommend gel pens or white charcoal.
