    Lightbulb custom sketchbooks!

    I've decided to start selling custom bound sketchbooks. I usually bind my own...I thought it would be nice to bind them for everybody else.

    Everybody check them out:
    http://www.hatchdoor.com

    (there's a link at the bottom of the page)

    the usual paper i use is Fabriano Artistico hotpress...handsewn with waxed thread.

    custom sketchbooks!

    I can custom make them with whatever materials desired, at every size and shape...so prices vary.

    books

    Perhaps I'll make a kit version too...with instructions and everything.

    I'm also thinking about getting paypal?...it might make the process a bit easier....

    everyone should jump at this offer. tiktok's sketchbooks are incredible and mad strong. if you want to take your artwork serious you gotta work on serious stuff and this is it.

    Pretty nice. I make my own sketchbooks at my dad's printshop. They might be getting rid of it, so I have to stock up!

    what style?

    What style of book and what kind of paper? if it's a 'salvage book' like the ones shown above, then I would have to scrounge about to find a weathered binding of equivalent size...(finding an old book is what gives it that 'antiqued' look)
