A Few Helpful Shop Updates


I've been busy making books for Christmas and also busy behind the scenes updating this website. The eagle-eyed amongst you might have noticed a slightly more contemporary feel. But more importantly, there are some changes that should improve your experience using the site.


Customers in the USA and Canada can now view prices in their own currency - use the little drop down menu at the top of any page.

Customer Service

There's a new Information section with a run-down of what you might be wondering when you're considering a book, such as 'how soon will it get to me', how do I care for this book' and 'what are the customer reviews like?' Find this at the bottom of any page.

Advanced Search

Only use blue notebooks? Need a specific size? It's now easier to get relevant search results. Use the Search box at the top of any page.

Back In Stock 

If something shows as out of stock, you can enter your email to automatically be updated once it's available again. 

Social Feed

Come and join me on Instagram and Twitter, I'd love to keep up with your news. 

Optimised For Mobile 

An ever-increasing number of people browse and shop on mobile and this site now optimises for your device making it easier than ever to use.


That's all for now - if you need any help using the site or ordering the perfect book and you want to talk to a human being, call me on +44 (0)7748 759 371 or email info@boundbyhand.co.uk
