Welcome to my blank book website!
To order one of my books, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in a custom book, please contact me to discuss the details of a possible order. Every detail affects the price. If you see something in my gallery on this site, but feel the price for "something like that" is too high for you, please contact me because sometimes there are ways to decrease the cost of an order by using different cover materials, or simplifying a cover design and I can't give you a price on YOUR possible order until we discuss the specifics by e-mail.
Please look around for as long as you like and thanks for visiting my blank book website!

My name is Tedra Ashley-Wannemuehler and I am a professional bookbinder. By that I mean that I do bookbinding as a full time job, 5 days a week (sometimes more!). It is my profession, NOT a hobby. You can learn more about the small bindery where I work at the website www.lincolnbindery.com
The fineblankbooks.com logo is now available on a variety of items from Cafe Press including t-shirts, sweatshirts, and stainless steel travel mugs. I am selling these items at cost in hopes that you might find something you like, purchase it, and wear it or use it to be free advertising for me!
