Q. What makes an Heirloom Letterbook better than a regular journal?
A. Size, quality, and style. Our Letterbooks are larger than most journals, measuring 8 x 10 inches with over 300 pages. We used acid-free paper at 80# text weight to ensure that even fountain pens won't bleed through the pages. Our cover fabric is water-resistent and each book is Smyth-sewn - the most durable style of binding. And we hope you'll agree they're beautiful!
Q. Why are the Letterbooks so expensive?
A. When we first designed the Letterbooks, we got production estimates from various sources, including several companies in China. Although it would have been significantly less costly to manufacture our products overseas, we decided that doing so would be inconsistent with our company ethos. We believe in responsible capitalism: to us, this means designing a product in a way that's environmentally responsible and utilizes fair labor practices. It also means partnering with American companies. Our Heirloom Letterbooks were designed, manufactured, and sourced in the USA.
Q. Who are your suppliers?
A. Our paper supplier is Neenah Paper, based in Wisconsin. Our cover fabric was produced by Holliston Mills in Tennessee. Our printer is O'Neil Printing and our binder is Roswell Bookbinding, both based in Arizona.
Q. What happens after I place my order?
A. Your Letterbook will be beautifully hand-wrapped in tissue paper and protected with bubblewrap before it's placed in the shipping box. You'll receive a confirmation email when we've shipped it.
