Personalized journals are gifts that inspire! A beautiful journal embellished with a name and other thoughtful details makes a cherished gift for any occasion. Blank journals can be used for literally anything, from a place to pen favorite Bible verses and prayers, to random notes, or inspirational thoughts. We chose to offer Paperblanks journals for personalization because Paperblanks is one of the most popular brands for fine quality blank journals. We love Paperblanks because for them bookmaking is a craft, and each journal is sewn to lay flat and made with high quality paper for a comfortable and smooth writing finish. The careful craftsmanship and beautiful design combine to make each journal a piece of art. The inspiration for each journal is chosen with care by scanning world history for interesting art and culture that will translate into good design. This particular design is inspired by antique maroon-colored leather and Renaissance-style book binding. During this period, manuscripts had beautifully crafted covers made of fine Moroccan leather that traveled along the trade routes from the East, and decorated with elaborate gold foliage patterns. We personalize along the flap in a lovely monogram font.
