About

We weren't happy with the way big box stores printed and bound our music, so we decided to take things into our own hands.

I am a contemporary music composer who needs to have my music printed and bound so I can give it to conductors and performers to play. This has always meant going to one of the big box printing stores who never understand how music should be printed. I've seen music bound upside-down, the coil binding on the wrong edge, uneven or too-short coils, and even missing pages. Perhaps even worse, the music comes out looking the same, cold way as everyone else's, in a community that prizes aesthetics and individuality.

In 2014 I decided to find a better way. I researched and developed other binding methods that are both functional and beautiful. I developed my own line of music staff paper journals with the layout and design elements that work for musicians, and began adding other journal types like blank, lined, graph paper, and guitar tablature. I also designed and created musical gifts like magnets and cards featuring printed music that is well-loved and well-known in the classical music community, but virtually unknown and misunderstood outside of it.

My success in selling journals (especially the unique music journals) has allowed me to expand and get the tools needed to print and bind larger journals, musical scores, and documents. Browse our selection of journals and gifts or send us a note so we can help you build your perfect custom book or score.
