You may recall a few months ago I started to offer handcrafted pen boxes. That was part of a bigger vision that I have for Greco Woodcrafting. As a pen collector myself, I understand shoppers typically aren’t looking for “just” a pen. This is especially true for people buying handcrafted pens.

When you buy something handmade, there is a connection that goes beyond the buyer and the item bought. It’s a connection to the artist, knowing that somebody took the time to make sure that very item you bought was done right, not just spot checking a random sample from a 10,000 piece run in a factory. And when it comes to handcrafted pens, people aren’t looking for just the pen itself…they are often times interested in getting additional accessories for it. So why shouldn’t those items be handcrafted, as well?

That is why I am proud to announce the newest items being offered on my site: Handcrafted leather journals.

I’ve been looking to do this for some time now and was happy to find the right person to partner with. Handcrafted in Nebraska, these journals combine the key elements I felt were necessary for journals that I would offer: They are handcrafted in the US, feature leather covers, contain acid free parchment paper, and are professionally bound.

Additionally, I am able to list these beautiful works of functional art at a reasonable price. Though they will regularly retail on my site for $30 each, they are being offered at an introductory price of just $25 for 1 week. They were listed yesterday, so as of Wednesday the 26th of June, 2013 they will be listed at their regular price of $30 each.

Currently we have two styles available: A slightly rustic looking short strap closure version, and a richer, higher sheen version with a winding strap closure. Additional styles will be added in the future.

Do you have a suggestion for a handcrafted pen-related item? Let me know either in the comments below or feel free to contact me directly.
