Refill Service

by Susan Green November 29, 2012

I value sustainability and good value and I reckon you do, too. So when you decide on one of my leather Journals, Sketchbooks or Memory Books, you've made a sustainable investment in something that will give you years of pleasure, because I'll refill it for you at cost price. 

This means you can keep on using the book that's become your beloved friend, not to mention save money and minimise your use of resources. How's that for sustainability?

How does this Refill Service work? Just email me at We'll discuss your options and work out a schedule, and I'll supply you with a returns address. 

I'll refill your book with 192 pages of 130 gsm cartridge paper, typically what your original book would have contained. If you'd like some kind of speciality paper, please do ask. We can use the same colour thread as your original book, or you can choose an alternative - check your options here.

Carefully cut the threads from your book (use small scissors and cutting from within the pages of the book) and remove the pages from your book, putting them into a box for safe keeping.

Roll up the leather, carefully package it in something waterproof and padded, then pop it in the post.

I'll return your refilled book to you within a couple of weeks, ready to fill up again with your words, drawings and plans. 

Happy days!
