Announcement   ❥❥Complimentary Shipping for all orders shipping in the United States ❥❥

Thank you for visiting our Etsy shop and considering one of our beautiful hand bound Photo Albums, Guest Books, Journals and Sketchbooks. Our book blocks are hand sewn so that when a book is open it will lie flat. The paper we use for our book pages is a delicate warm white text that has a sensuous felt finish with a deckle edge. This gives the unique look and feel of hand made paper. The pages of our Photo Albums are a heavy card stock with the same elegant qualities as our text paper. And of course both papers are archival and chlorine free. We have fun sourcing materials from around the world to make our books beautiful as well as functional. As a personal touch I sign and date each journal by hand. We strive to make beautiful books you will enjoy and use.

You can tap into your imagination and use our books as journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, scrapbooks, photo albums, guest books and much more! Journaling can be very rewarding for everyday use or to capture special and important events and occasions.

Watermark Bindery books make special and long lasting gifts. You can dedicate a book to a friend, write a special quote or saying on the first page or fill a photo album with pictures and mementos. Start a tradition!

Standard Shipping is provided at no charge for all orders shipped in the United States. Our Standard Shipping takes approximately 2-8 days depending on where you are located. Standard Shipping can be upgraded to Priority Mail Shipping when checking out.

We appreciate you visiting our Etsy shop and always welcome questions and feedback!

Honestly, this album is even more beautiful in person! The photos don't pick up the delicate shimmering silver accents in the paper and the strip between the aqua fabric and printed paper. It even came wrapped in a beautiful art paper and cushioned with crinkle filler paper. It's extremely well made and I will be ordering more of these! It's so pretty, I'm nervous about putting pictures in it. LOL!

About

Hello and Welcome to our Bindery!

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a paper collector, lover, buyer, enthusiast and plain paper nut. My passion for paper has evolved into a creative and challenging business making hand bound Journals, Books and Photo Albums. We are a husband and wife team and we bind each of our books and albums by hand in our studio located in the woods on Marrowstone Island near Port Townsend, Washington. We are supervised by our rescue dog Jake who is an enthusiastic and dedicated helper!

The paper we use for the pages in our books has an elegant felt finish and the beautiful look and feel of handmade paper. We hand sew our book blocks so that our books will lie open flat. They are perfect to use for drawing, writing, sketching and even doodling. And of course the pages are archival and acid-free to last for decades. For the book covers, we choose handmade papers from around the world, each unique and different from the next.

My favorite covers are the printed covers which include traditional Chiyogami papers from Japan. These papers are truly amazing pieces of art – incorporating traditional designs and manufacturing techniques, they reflect the art of Japan and Asia and are truly a treasure. For our textured paper covers we hand tear the paper to create a truly unique and interesting book cover.

Viktor and I are proud of the quality of the Watermark Bindery books. We try to be our harshest critics, and hope to delight our customers with every book we make.

If you'd like to share your thoughts or comments, we’d love to hear from you!
