This listing is to add the engraving option to your journal order. You can have up to 3 initials engraved on the cover of your journal.

► When checking-out, let me know what initials you would like in "NOTES TO SELLER". Thanks!


The initials are burned into the leather, using a leather burning tool. I do it freehand, as I find it offers more 'character' than just plain stamping would. The look of the initials, when burned, vary according to the leather being burned...some turn out light, and others dark. Generally, the initials are placed on the bottom right or left hand corner depending on where the wrap-around flap of the journal is located.

IMPORTANT: Please do not expect "perfectly aligned" neat-edged engravings. These are completely hand-aligned and hand-burned engravings, and will be slightly irregular or "imperfect," if you will, as there's a human element to doing this. It is obvious they were engraved 'by-hand' and not by a machine or stamp. If you are unsure that you would like the 'handmade' look of this form of engraving, please do not purchase this option for your journal.

I DO NOT accept returns of any journal that has been personalized with engraving. If you have a question about an item, please ask me *prior* to purchasing it, and having it engraved. Once it's engraved, it's yours, and cannot be returned.

If you would like more than 3 letters, or other wording engraved on the journal's cover, please contact me for a quote. Normally it looks better, if engraving on the journal is kept to a minimum, so as not to 'clutter' or distract from the natural look of the book.
