Story of Us - personalised wedding gift - a unique luxurious gift that will be enjoyed for years to come.

About Hope House Press

Hope House Press - unique, hand made gifts for people with high standards. We're famous for our personalised, leather notebooks, diaries and journals.

Hope House Press is the home of luxury, hand made, personalised stationery. From our Cambridge based Studio, every notebook, diary and journal is carefully hand made, to order, with love, care and an attention to detail that shines through in the finished product.

We source the finest softback, real Italian leather. We work with the smoothest of papers and bring them together with cutting edge inking techniques to produce a piece of luxury stationery that is a worthy receptacle for thoughts, notations and appointments.

With more than twenty years experience, there’s nothing quite like the thrill of receiving an order from Hope House Press. It’s a heady combination – from the noise of the tissue paper when unwrapping, to the unmistakeable smell of the softback leather as it flexes, the sight of the grain within the leather and the recognition of your bespoke personalisation choices – everything comes together to make it a beautiful experience.

When given as a gift, our signature range of luxury leather notebooks, journals and diaries are treasured because we provide a truly lovely buying experience - we always include beautiful gift wrap and packaging, free UK signed for delivery and personalised notecards at no extra cost. If you're short of time and would like to send a gift directly from our Studio, we can make that happen.

We've been featured in a number of magazines and newspapers including Harpers Bazaar, Glamour, Period Homes & Interiors, and The Independent Newspaper. Our diaries were chosen by The Independent as their pick of the crop for 2017 and 'The Story of Us' is always a winner as a wedding gift.

If you have something specific in mind, we're always happy to help. Please don't hesitate to get in touch, if you have any questions or ideas on how we can bring your idea to life.

Terms and Conditions

Product Care Guidelines:

Our leather bound stationery is designed to age gracefully with love and use. Many of the aniline leathers we use will naturally develop a lovely patina over time,which will add to their vintage-inspired look.

In common with all leather goods and stationery, our journals benefit from care to ensure they remain in good condition.

We recommend that journals are not placed in contact with light coloured fabrics or surfaces, to ensure there is no risk of colour transference between surfaces.

We also particularly recommend that books are kept away from direct sources of light and heat, from dampness, humidity and rain - and away from contact with items that may stain mark, or otherwise damage the leather.
