Princess Diaries FAQs

Q. Can I buy one?
No, I am NOT currently making handmade books. I am expecting to start up again but do not have a date yet - I need to source a new paper supplier and make the whole process more time efficient. For now, I am focussed on retail:


Q. Can you change the name and initials?
Yes. The leather is carved by hand and the locket is engraved by hand. No extra charge.


Q. How long would it take?
Too long for most customers - 6 weeks to 6 months (or longer - I'm not making handmade books for now).


Q. Can I get it delivered for Christmas, birthday etc?
No, sorry - no deadlines.


Q. How much?
Way too much. Unless you have money to burn and you really, really want this diary - don't even ask.


Q. How much would it cost if filled with less pages?
No short cuts, sorry. The money is in the cover materials and the hours taken.


Q. Does the diary come with the locket and necklace?
Yes. The locket is also made by hand.


Q. Can you change the colour?
Yes, the leather is dyed by hand but some colours work better than others.


Q. Are the pages blank or ruled.


Q. Is the diary made out of real leather?
Yes - cow leather.


Q. Can it be changed to fake leather?
No - I can't carve fake leather.


Q. But I really want one - I'll pay anything and wait forever - please?
