Purchasing Guide

Interested in placing a custom order but not quite sure of the process? Start here!

I offer completely customized notebooks - and am just a message away. I am always happy to help design your dream planner.

1. Start with size - the size of your notebook is determined by the size of inserts you wish to use. I have included dimensions in each custom listing.

Not sure which size you want? I highly suggest cutting out several different sizes from scrap paper to see how each feels in use.

2. Each available leather is listed with "custom" in the title. Browse around, read the description for weight, temper, and grain information.

3. Width - I offer several width options, starting with slim (1/2", 2 strands) up to jumbo (2.5", 10 strands). Each width increases in 1/2" and 2 strand increments. A slim width easily holds 3-4 inserts.

Reinforced:  a reinforced spine refers to an additional strip of leather that is sewn onto the spine of your notebook. In addition to aesthetics, a reinforced spine can add more structure a stability to your notebook, especially when you are opting for  a larger width.

4. POCKETS - Each maker uses different wording and designs for their pockets.

Secretarial:  Proportionately sized pockets that are affixed to the bottom and side edges of your notebook. "Doubled" means there are two layers of leather.

Vertical Full Height:  Proportionately sized pockets that are the same height of your notebook and affixed to top, bottom, and side edges of your notebook. "Doubled" means there are two layers of leather. The top layer is usually stitched in the middle to form additional pockets.

Horizontal Wallet:  Sized to fit business and credit cards, like a traditional wallet layout. It is the same height as your notebook, and the number of slots is dependent on the size of your notebook.

ACCENT:  I try to coordinate and confirm your accent options via email. Each listing displays just a fraction of my secondary color choices. Matte, metallic, neutral, rainbow - I carry it all!


5.  Pen Loop - My pen loops are made of black or white elastic approximately 1" wide that extend 1/2" from the back side of your notebook.

6. Closure - I offer traditional elastic or snap closure, and a "wrap" option with either. The wrap turns your notebook into a trifold style, with extra width that folds over the front. This is handy if you like to carry a lot of loose papers or prefer to "over" stuff.
