manHandz's Shop Announcement

Due to popularity of my items both on and off line, I am UNABLE TO TAKE ANYMORE CUSTOM ORDERS. All items that appear in my shop are sold AS IS and are NOT CUSTOMIZABLE.

Normally I enjoy making custom orders for my customers, unfortunately it is just becoming an impossible task when mixed with two jobs and fatherhood. Thank you for your understanding.


Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my shop. Let me just get it out of the way now, I thought the shop name was a clever Seinfeld reference, so that should let you know what generation I am.

I am a professional investigator who works in law enforcement. I took up sewing a couple years ago when I and my colleagues constantly struggled to maintain our field notebooks while juggling pens and other equipment. Clearly there was a need there. So I went to work and came up with some notebook cover ideas. After crafting notebook covers, I gave them away to my colleagues. After years of repeated abuse, in the worst elements we discovered the notebook covers were rugged, very reliable, and best of all easily outlasted typical cheapo nylon notebook covers.

Please checkout some of my items. Everyone of them was handmade by me and every version has been used in the field on a nightly basis. My colleagues and others who have purchased my products have told me it is some of the best stuff they've ever had to do their work.

I'm always improving. Since I started I have drastically upgraded materials and now I'm improving my equipment. Be sure to check back for new products. I don't plan to stop at notebook covers.

Please feel free to send me a message via etsy or send me an email if you have any questions about my products.

Again thanks for stopping in!
