**Because of upcoming (and pretty awesome!) travel plans, MY CURRENT PROCESSING TIME IS 4-5 WEEKS.**
Every travel story deserves to be preserved in a place as unique as the trip and the traveler. This 100% handmade, custom notebook is thoughtfully created to include space for photos and writing, plus pockets and envelopes for extra mementos, to fully document your amazing journey.

It makes a brilliant personal gift that stands out from the crowd for any lover of travel -- for Christmas, wedding, graduation or any occasion.

Make it your own with a choice of any map and personalization of the front cover with names, date and/or a short phrase.

For the holiday season, your purchase includes a gift box and 10-archival photo sleeves at no additional charge, if desired. (Sorry. box cannot be included with international orders.)

Choose your gift options (second & fourth photos) from the drop down menu before you add to cart.

After you add the book to your cart, type your choice of map and the wording for your personalization in the block that says "Add optional note to seller." If you leave no note, I will use a world map with no personalization.

Frequently asked questions about FreeRangeBookbinding

All domestic orders are currently shipping priority mail. Because I know you. You don't like to wait. ;)
The default for orders outside the US is for first class international shipping. First class takes 2 to 3 weeks to arrive in most locations, but may take longer if a shipment gets hung up in customs. If you would like to upgrade to priority mail, let me know, and I will figure out a cost for you.

I've done the best I can to estimate and charge the actual cost for shipping. Books are heavy and international shipping costs have more than doubled over the last several years. I apologize for the high prices, but I don't make money on shipping. These are the actual costs.
Well, no. I can only personally guarantee a ship date, not a delivery date, since once I mail it, I'm not in charge of when it's delivered. Unless I bring it to your house. Which I'm happy to do if you live in my home town. Otherwise we both have to trust to USPS to do its job in a timely manner. I offer upgraded shipping on every item, so please go with your own personal trust level in the postal service to get it to you in the available time.
