Our heavyweight leather journal is a sight to behold - it cherishes tradition, longevity and doing things the right way. The hand cut vegetable tanned leather is much thicker than our usual soft back leather. It is textured, heavyweight and structured. It wraps around your choice of plain, lined or squared paper and is secured with a hand cut leather band with brass stud for closure.
This journal gives new meaning to the phrase "built to last". When you give this as a gift, you're letting someone know that you want the relationship, the person, the event - whatever it is marking - to go well, to be successful, strong and enduring.
We can see this being a perfect gift for someone as they graduate from University, take their first communion and even as a christening gift. We want to give the best start to the people we love, whatever it is that they are embarking upon and this gift articulates all those hopes perfectly.
Personalisation We use a Times New Roman font for the personalisation on this style. You can choose up to five letters for the gold foil personalisation. As we are using a vintage font, we can only accept letters and full stops for embossing and foiling into the leather. Your choice of personalisation will make an imprint into the leather and have a gold foil applied. Personalisation will be made in the bottom right hand corner of the journal.
Size The paper is of a standard A5 stationery size, measuring 148 x 210 mm. The surrounding leather is hand cut, as is the leather band which secures it together. As such the size of this varies slightly each time it is made. Edges are left untouched, to accurately reflect the texture and composition of this heavyweight material.
Paper Choose from plain, lined or squared paper.
Gift wrapping The thicker leather results in this journal being too big for the bespoke hand made gift boxes which we are known for. Whilst we have the boxes made, we are wrapping in a double layer of tissue paper, so that it is ready for gifting. If you'd prefer to wrap in the tissue paper yourself, please let us know and we'll fold the paper and add it in at point of dispatch.
