If it is stored below freezing it will loose its adhesion. The texture of the glue should resemble Elmer's glue. If it has thickened to a paste like consistency or become clumpy or sandy it may have been exposed to low temperatures for too long. If you have concerns about freezing temperatures please contact me via convo.************************Visually impaired?

This kit was perfect for me as someone with no experience in book binding. The instructions were easy to follow and I love the notebook I made.
I love this little kit. The resulting book is gorgeous and the instructions are clear enough for me, a beginner. I loved the choice of end papers and bookcloths. Also, would recommend this shop because everything was carefully packed and shipped fast.
Amazing little kit! It took me a while to do it but it was so much fun. The instructions were clear and very helpful! Would definitely buy these as gifts for friends, and want to buy some refill kits for myself!
Adorable kit! This was my first case bound book project. The instructions were simple, and all the pieces came together without a hitch.
