Each gift wrapped product is carefully wrapped with eco-friendly FSC Certified paper in a sturdy kraft box filled with crinkle paper and tied with 100% jute twine. You can add gift wrapping to each product where it is available in your cart. You can also upgrade it to include a laser-engraved message on a wooden tag.
- Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.
- Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!
- Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleaner for additional leather cleaning and conditioning.
I have been purchasing Rustico Journals for a few years. Some female members of my family fell in love with my Rustico journal. I gifted them with Rustico journals. Ever since then, on Christmas they get a new one. My favorite is the "Messenger Journal." However, I have also fallen in love with the "Courier Journal". There is something about the smell and feel of the leather that transports me to another era. Having to sit with such a wonderful, old style, rugged, medium just makes me pause, collect my thoughts and center myself. That is essential in today's crazy world. That is why I personally love these journals. I thank Rustico for making these awesome Journals for my sanity and enjoyment.
These were a hit for my family. A five star would be if the orders allowed selection of the different types of papers like bullet journal paper or lined or blank. Also the stitching was slightly difficult so including a thimble Would help as well as a little more clarity in the instructions.
The journal kit is really cool and it’s fun being able to customize the details that you want. I would recommend this to everyone.
The only thing that I would like to see as an option is the pages themselves. They are cut to give the rustic feel of an old book, but I think it would be nice to have the edges cut straight. That would just be my personal preference.
Overall, great job Rustico, it’s a really cool product.
