A custom request for a bridal shower. I love the words the customer chose for the label.
The lengths I go to for the happiness of the studio mascot. He hates when I punch covers on the table. It's too loud! So I am punching in the floor.

About

Quality, excellence, and elegance in handmade books.

Bookbinding has been my passion since around 2003 when I was searching for a method to bind my mixed media collage art into a single book. I enjoyed the process so much I couldn't stop making books and my shelves were overflowing! By sharing my work with others through Etsy I have found an excuse to continue making books.

I got started on Etsy thanks to my husband, who saw a magazine article about Etsy and encouraged me to open a shop. I thought that was crazy and no one would want to buy my books, but with his encouragement I did it anyway.

In 2007, I opened my first shop, UberArt, specializing in art journals. My first listing sold within 24 hours and I've been at it ever since!

Through the years I've refined my style and began making wedding guest books. I opened Emerson Bindery in 2009 and have been privileged to provide over 5500 guest books to make my customers' events even more special.

Not only do I work to provide an excellent product, but for me it's also about the customer's experience. I take special care in the details, right down to the packaging.

My work has been published by Lark Books in "Making Mini Books: Big Ideas for 30+ Little Projects".

I also had the pleasure of working with Grammy award winning rock band, The Fray, to create a backstage guest book for their 2009 summer tour. You can view my portfolio at http://emersonbindery.com

    I love making books! I am an artist, art journaler, gardener, and mom. I enjoy warm, sunny days on the water when I'm not busy in my studio. Much of my time these days is taken up training Clyde not to "help" with everything!

    My job is to approve all incoming shipments of supplies. The UPS driver must first pet me before making deliveries. In my downtime, I enjoy lying in patches of warm sunshine in the floor of the studio while my mom makes books.

    I like to help. With everything. I am still a puppy but I am learning fast. Maybe not fast enough for Mom, though.

If you need a faster method of shipping upgrades are available for most items at checkout.

Contact me if you need an order rushed (for an additional fee) and I will do my best to fit it into my schedule if possible.
