👉 Nature of the Products
▪ Are your journals totally handmade?
Yes, they are. I love to make every single detail of each book with my hands.
▪ Do you accept custom orders?
It depends. Please contact me with your idea and I will tell you if I can do it. Your project needs to inspire me. I 'm taking pride that since now, I have not a single disappointed customer, and I intend to keep this as a fact! I can make the book that will fulfil your needs, but as I am the creator, the finishing touches will be mine. I am an artist, so you can leave the creative part to me!
▪ Are your journals photo safe?
Yes, they are! I always use the finest materials, researched and bought from all over the world. I have a care for detail, and I make everything by hand. My books are made to withstand time and preserve your work for you and for the generations to come.
👉 Shipping Questions:
▪ Are your journals ready to ship?
Sometimes they are, sometimes they are not. If a journal is not ready to ship, it is marked as “made to order”. You need to check its processing time to know how much time I need to make it for you.
▪ Do you ship everywhere?
Yes, I do. I ship everywhere in the world.
▪ When can I expect my order?
I will pack your journal very carefully and post it by registered mail. It is more expensive than the simple "airmail" service, but it will let us both breathe freely and not worry about the fate of your journal. I will email you the tracking number, so that you can track your journal during its journey to you.

I have estimated the delivery time to the best of my knowledge, but there might be delays that I cannot predict.
