Life is a book, so why not have one made especially for you?

HI. I'm Suzy. I love books! Almost two decades ago, I made my first guest book. It was my own. I took a discounted guest book from a retail shop with a damaged cover and created something inexpensive and beautiful. Soon after, as other family members got married, I knew they were special and deserved to have special books to capture the memories and advice for this once in a life-time kind of day.

Then one day, I ventured into a craft shop and discovered designer papers, binding tools, and the local college in our area was offering classes on book binding. I fell in love and I've been making custom books ever since.

To me the most valuable thing one should spend on a guest book is the memories that it holds. I make affordable and unique books for any occasion and I love what I do.

I also specialize in creating custom designer journals, notebooks, and specialty books. I work with my customers to create a book that meets their needs, is unique especially to them, and will last a lifetime.

All my books are handmade, I press the hardbound covers, hand stitch bindings, and design the inside pages.

I find joy each day in raising my family, my love of creating books, and being inspired by the world around me. I look forward to working with you to create that special book just for you.

Frequently asked questions
How Long Does It Take To Produce?

Please check the official production lead time by pressing the "Shipping & Policies" tab of the item you like. Usually I do my best to produce and ship:
- paperback books within 3-5 business days
- hardbound books within 7 business days
- custom orders 7-14 business days.
Please make sure you confirm your proof asap in order to start production on time if I am creating a custom item for you.
Please make sure to add the delivery (postage) lead time to the production lead time to estimate correctly when you may expect to receive your order.

How Do I Count My Book's Pages?

Pages are counted as follows.
Printed pages: counted per printed side. Example most guest books are 30 pages (counted one-sided).
Blank pages are counted on both sides, so 30 sheets of paper is 60 pages.
Card stock photo pages are counted double-sided, so 10 sheets of card stock is 20 pages.
**Each book's listing will specify page count based on blank or lined pages.

How many pages does a wedding guest book have? Can I get more pages?

Most wedding guest books comes with 60 blank pages (30 sheets) of sturdy 20 lb weight paper.

If you need more pages, you can choose to add on pages or convo me to set up custom listing.

What if I don't see a cover or page design I'm looking for?

I'm happy to design and create a book cover and inside page designs to meet your event's specific need. Please convo me with your design need, including color, purpose of the book, and feel free to send inspirational photo. Also be sure to include a specific budget you have for the book. I look forward to working with you.

Will My Book Arrive on Time?

The delivery times are simply estimates based on the previous statistics and the post office recommendations. Therefore, I cannot guarantee any firm arrival date. It is a customer's responsibility to assess possible risks of delay and estimate an arrival date. If, based on the provided lead time and delivery time information, a customer decides to place an order, while at the same time keeping in mind a particular arrival date (e.g. a marriage date), he/she assumes full responsibility for a potential postage delay. 5 Signatures Bindery cannot be held liable for any orders that are delivered past that expected by a customer arrival date unless there was an explicit promise given in advance through a personal communication (ETSY convo)
