WILL MY ORDER ARRIVE FOR CHRISTMAS/HANUKKAH/THIS SPECIFIC DATE?
I can not promise on time delivery. Due to covid-19 plus the holidays, the postal system is seriously over worked. Delays should be expected, they are working their hardest! Orders placed on or before Nov 26th, should make it by the 25th December, but this is not guaranteed.

FREE FAST & TRACKED SHIPPING TO THE US & CANADA.
*except bookmarks - bookmarks do not include free tracking.

I can not make changes to your order once placed.

Although it would be very inexpensive & easy - we do not offer gold/silver foil embossing as it does not meet our high quality standards. It does not last. We do not care for temporary. We offer "blind embossing" (no foil) using high pressure & heat only.

Forest Nine specializes in quality hand bound personalized leather journals, wood covered wedding guest books & recipe books. Wholesale pricing is available.

Handbound Journals

My name is Alyssia and I am the owner and creator here at Forest Nine.

I have been creating hand sewn custom journals since 2012. Bookmaking is my life. Still completely journal obsessed after 10 years of creating them daily. All of my journals are created using thick, durable full grain leather, tough waxed thread, archival quality papers & love. Handmade in house - I do not outsource. Made to survive all your adventures <3

What paper option is best for me/ what is the waterproof paper option?

Blank: Thick 80lb smooth text paper, perfect for writing & drawing, can handle watercolor paints.

Lined: Thick 80lb smooth text paper, with light grey narrow ruled lines, can handle watercolor paint.

Recipe: Thick 80lb smooth text paper, printed with a recipe template for you to fill in your own recipes by hand.

Waterproof paper: 20lb text with waterproof wool based coating, can get wet without damaging your work. Can use any non liquid pens- cheap ball point ones are great, sharpie markers, pencil & crayon. NOT for use with watercolor paints or fountain pens. This feels very similar to regular paper with a slight grip/grit. Available in blank only.

Can I have gold/silver foil embossing?

Although it would be extremely inexpensive, quick & easy - we do not offer gold/silver foil embossing as it does not meet our high quality standards. It does not last. We do not care for temporary. We offer "blind embossing" (no foil) using high pressure & heat only since this is the highest quality option.
