Personalised leather diaries make great gifts for stationery lovers - or a wonderful treat for yourself. This 2014 leather diary features a personalised letterpress print.
Our bespoke personalised leather diaries are popular with customers year after year. Stylish and practical, they look good, feel good - and the aroma of paper and leather means they smell wonderful too.
Printed on ivory paper and bound with a softback leather cover with trimmed edges, designed to be strong and flexible. The natural materials and our print methods, make each one unique.
As a boutique stationery brand, we only have a limited print run of each size and format - so we'd advise ordering early, to avoid disappointment. Some sizes and formats sold out well before Christmas last year.
Available as a Daily or Weekly diary, in two sizes: Medium and Large (A5).
To help with choosing, we've included images of the inside pages. Scroll through the images - and click to view the photos at full size.
This design features your choice of wording, printed over a maximum of 3 lines in archival black ink. The letterpress print gives these diaries a characterful vintage appearance. The print method we use gives a gentle 'kiss' with ink, rather than a deep impression in the leather.
Text is printed right justified on the front cover of the diary, as illustrated.
If you only want us to print one or two lines of text, that's fine. Decide how you'd like the text positioned (a little higher or a little lower) and enter the personalisation in the corresponding field(s) - leaving the other fields blank.
As an example: to order the personalisation TOM'S DIARY 2014, enter TOM'S in the Line 1 field, DIARY in the Line 2 field - and 2014 in the Line 3 field.
Please enter the year 2014 if required.
(Example illustrated is the Medium sized diary bound in Caramel leather).

An Important Note on Choosing Letterpress Printed Stationery:
We print our leather stationery by hand, using vintage letterpress type and archival black ink. The method we use to print our books produces a fabulous aged-effect print. Letterpress printed designs have great character and appeal - and the method produces natural variation between prints. Printed text is more characterful than text produced using some other methods, such as a transfers.
The letterpress print gives our books a unique and deliberately different look to that achieved using traditional blind or foiled embossing. By its nature, letterpress printed text will not be completely uniform. Each time the inked vintage print blocks are stamped onto our leather bound books, a slightly different printed image will be produced. This is intentional - and makes each personalisation - and each handmade book unique. Any variation should be regarded as part of the vintage inspired design of our stationery - and valued as part of its character.
