Very promptly delivered so made my tight deadline - delighted! Top quality product. Classy and much appreciated by recipient, though she said she felt she had to practise her drawing before being worthy of it. Would definitely buy again and would also be thrilled to receive as a gift myself. Thank you, Square Squirrel Studio!

This was a gift for my husband and he loves it. The paper and cover are very high quality. We both appreciate that the paper is unlined. The shop was very responsive and kind. It also shipped quickly and was nicely packaged. If you’re looking for a quality journal this is it.

Turning paper and fabric into beautiful creations
We established Square Squirrel Studio as a hand book binding and print studio to enable us to focus upon creating unique and personalised works. Combining stylish contemporary designs, influenced by classic works, with traditional craftsmanship to create items that will be treasured.
Passionate about making high quality, hand-crafted books we spend time ensuring that every material used at each stage of the bookbinding process is exactly right. From the gorgeously textured fabrics in a range of vivid colours to the high quality papers - each element has been carefully selected by us. Only when we are entirely happy with the final product do we offer you the opportunity to own one of our notebooks, journals or sketchbooks.
Whether you sketch, write or compose - we are confident that the choices we have made will provide a unique personal edition to complement and showcase your creativity.
Based in leafy Surrey, England every order is handcrafted by us in our tiny (but perfectly formed) smoke free and pet free studio. Please feel free to favourite our store and if you have any questions we love getting messages.
Accepted payment methods
Returns & exchanges
In order to maintain our high quality standards we typically complete each item within the following time periods:
- Hardback books: 3 - 5 working days
Please take the above time in to account when calculating your expected delivery date to avoid disappointment.
Every item is carefully and securely packaged. First we wrap the item in crystal clear protective cellophane then it is secured in a rigid mailing container.
We take pride in our work and would be as disappointed as you if it did not reach you in perfect condition. Consequently our packaging has been designed to be robust.
We ship all items using Royal Mail to the address you provide during the Etsy checkout process.
UK: For buyers in the UK we ship using Royal Mail's Standard 1st Class service. This service aims to deliver the next working day but it may be prudent to allow 2 days.
EU and International: For buyers outside the UK we will ship using Royal Mail's International Standard delivery service. Within Europe a delivery time of 3 to 5 working days is expected, everywhere else this is 5 to 7 working days.
Please be aware that delivery times cannot be guaranteed with postal services often having additional pressure, especially during holiday seasons.
If you have been notified that your item has been shipped and it remains undelivered two weeks after the anticipated delivery date please contact us.
Standard delivery provides a reliable, efficient and economical service.
***** CHRISTMAS 2018 - SHIPPING DATES *****
All of our books are shipped using Royal Mail's delivery service. In order for us to meet the Royal Mail's latest recommended posting dates for Christmas 2018 please ensure your order is placed on or before the following dates:
- USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand & Europe : 3rd December 2018
- UK Inland : 12th December 2018
These are the last dates, pre-christmas, that we currently anticipate taking orders.
Where items are posted before the Royal Mail’s latest recommended posting dates for Christmas 2018 we would anticipate them arriving in time. Postal services can however be affected by seasonal pressures, weather conditions and many other factors which are not within our control. We therefore cannot, and do not, guarantee specific delivery dates and recommend ordering as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of our items are specifically personalised for each individual order therefore wholesale orders are currently not accepted.
We aim to introduce new designs on a regular basis. Where these designs allow for personalisation or customisation this is specified in the listing. Whilst we are happy to consider small variations to our designs we do not yet cater for major variations. If you would like to request a small variation please contact us before ordering for details of the further costs.
We do not currently offer an embossing service. Our designs are applied flat to the cover surface in order to create a more modern look and feel.
Branding is really important to the development of our little business therefore we discretely include our squirrel logo on each item. If you really must have him removed please contact us before ordering and we will have a quiet word to see if he minds.
Buyers outside of the UK are responsible for any import duties, taxes and other costs. Overseas customers should also be aware that delays by customs may occasionally occur.
Have we missed anything? If you have a question we would love to hear from you.
