Custom Logos & Personalizations

Can I do Monograms, Initials and Personal Inscriptions on my journal?

For most leather cover books and albums we offer a variety of custom embossing features, including: Monograms/Initials and Inscriptions available in 3 fonts and a wide variety of colors. For our exclusive wood cover books and albums we offer laser engraving which precisely cuts into the wood cover for a very rustic and handsome effect, also available in 3 fonts.


Can I add a photo or logo to personalize it?

Upload your own art file as a ready-to-go monochrome logo, select one of our stock images or get design assistance. Select this option if you've already got something you feel is ready to upload and be engraved.

Do you offer gift wrapping?

Several exquisite gift wrapping choices are available, although our custom Epica boxes and velvet/satin pouches make for an elegant presentation. You will find Gift wrapping options available and appropriate to your purchase as you shop.

I want something more than just monograms on first page. What else can I do?

If you've got more to say than what fits on the front cover with embossing, let us design a custom title page for you. Select from different fonts and border colors to match the style of your Epica product. Names, date, name of a special occasion, scripture passage, poem, quotes, you name it! We can all do it in professionally typeset and printed, then mounted to the first page of the book with a color coordinated border.

Can I emboss the idea of my own design on the products?

Create your own perfect logo with our help. Whether you've got the perfect artwork or not, we can turn almost any image into something that can attractively be engraved onto one of our journals, albums or guest books.

I want to emboss something that’s different, do you do customization?

Want to create something truly spectacular? Select from a wide variety of images and we will create a custom logo to engrave your album or journal.

Customer Testimonials


"Lovely books made in a way that’s been around for centuries. Pictures from our latest trip are beautify, on the heavy fiber paper. A falling-apart album from the kids’ early childhoods is now decanted into one of these. Excellent leather binding. The box is almost too gorgeous, and ships well. That you for a product that will last a lifetime or so!"

— Susan R.


"Once again I am delighted with the journal I purchased here at Epica! If you haven’t ordered one yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. I have given four as gifts and have one for myself. The packaging will make the receiver feel so special, and the journal is beautiful. "

— Julianne K.


"Bought my girlfriend this custom Italian leather bound recipe book as she loves to cook and has a collection of loose recipes in a diary. She loved it. I was a bit worried that the enscryption would not come out well because you just type what you want it to say with a description, but it came out great. I’m very happy with the service, speed, and quality of the product."
