    Ben- n You went above and beyond on these albums for me, and they meant the world to my family to read when they couldn't be with me on my wedding day. All of them cried ;) These albums are of the greatest quality, created with the greatest detail...made to last for years to come. I couldn't praise you enough for all of your hard work. I couldn't have asked for any customizations that were more difficult-thank you for your patience and hard work, your work will be with us for a lifetime!

    Once again... Annotated Press does not disappoint! This is the second journal we've puchased, and we are beyond pleased. The superior craftsmanship and detail of this journal are what sets it apart from all others. From the hand torn pages to the beautifully stained wood covers, there is love put into every aspect of it. We look forward to being return customers for years to come!

    I ordered a custom journal for my wife's birthday. I could not believe the genuine, original quality of the journal! It brought tears to my wife's eyes not only because of the thought behind the journal, but because of the care and thoughtfulness that had obviously been poured into every detail. She actually commented on the great smell of the wood, stain and beeswax finish. From the binding style options, to the hand torn pages, the love, detail and artistry is what sets the Annotated Press apart from all of the competition. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a great gift!

    We love it. Not a huge fan of the title page (Was disappointed in the "printed straight from the computer" look and graphics). Other than that, it is perfect. Beautiful wood and beautiful work. Love how the quotes turned out. Thanks for making us a treasure.
