If you remember, in Part 1 of the post on personalising your journal we spoke about having text on the cover of your carved or plain classic journal or binder. What? You didn’t read it, you say? Well, you can catch up by reading it here:
But what about our range of wraparound journals? We use a different type of leather on these which is beautifully soft and supple; the style needs this so that the covers can wrap around themselves. However, this suppleness means that we cannot tool text or designs onto the leather covers.
But, all is not lost. We can still personalise them by printing text onto the first page inside. And the best thing is, it’s free of charge for any amount of text (as long as we can fit it onto a single page).
Please note, all photographs of inscriptions on this page are examples only, you can rest assured that your own heartfelt messages will not be displayed here.
So, what font will it be in?
We have three fonts that we commonly use, they are clear and easy to read. We have an Informal Font, which we often use for more personal messages. We have a Classic Font, which is our good all-rounder and looks like the title page of a novel (and it has a beautiful italicised version). Finally we have our Capitalised Font, which is great for single names, initials and for a more formal look.
We have no hard and fast rules about which one we use for an inscription, unless you specifically ask we will use our own judgment. We usually print the text in a colour to complement the cover.
Ok, how does the Informal Font look in a journal?
I’m glad you asked! Here it is:
How about the Classic Font?
This is our most versatile font and has the benefit of having a stunning italicised version.
…and the Formal Font?
Your standard fonts are great, but what if I want something a bit different?
That’s no problem at all. Just send us the text you would like and the font style you would like it to be in (even better, send us the name of the font you would like) and we’ll do our best to match it.
Here are a few examples:
And that’s about it. It’s all quite simple, if you buy an A6 or an A5 wraparound journal then send us the text you would like and we will add it to the first page for you. And best of all, it’s completely free.
How’s that for a personalised gift?
