So, what makes a handmade guest book better than a store-bought book? In a word: everything. Sure, a store-bought guest book is easy to pick up and cheap, but how long will it last? Is the paper made for signing? Is the book durable enough to withstand your endless years of marriage? Handmade is.

Can your guest book be customized with your favorite colors, sumptuous fabrics, and choice of coordinating ribbon? Store-bought can’t. Handmade can.

Can a store-bought guest book be pre-personalized with your names? No. Handmade? You bet.

Handmade is made with love, care, and two hands. A handmade guest book supports local business. Store-bought? Eh, not so much.
