If writing stuff down is your thing, how about a slip cover with beautiful Horween leather, designed to precisely fit the replaceable/swappable Moleskin Cahier notebook. The notebook is held in place by sliding the rear cover through a handstitched leather strap in the back, leaving the cover free of stitching to be engraved with a city/town/neighborhood of your choice. Delivered with one notebook installed, easily replaceable with offerings from Amazon or your local paper goods store. Your SlipCover will last for years and years, and just get all the cooler as it gets the little dings and scuffs of use.

Map is laser engraved on the entire front cover, wraps spine, and fades out on the rear cover. North is always up because we're not anarchists.

We have several major cities available, and can add a custom map of anywhere for an artwork fee.

Engraving & Monogramming

In general, we are subtle with our personalized engravings & monograms. Smaller products receive smaller monograms, and any personalized messages are hidden where the owner can see them but they are not 'out in the open' whenever possible. If you have specific preferences for any customized engravings, make a note in the special instructions section after selecting your options and we'll contact you to verify after your order.

What Kind of Leather Does FFF Use? What's this Chromexcel/Veg Tan/HF stuff instead of just leather color? Where are your products made?

We make everything by hand in Orlando.

As to the leathers we use: The super short answer is Horween Leathers in Chicago, and because we're leather geeks we want you to know exactly what you're getting--it's so much more than just the color of the leather.

You can find more info HERE about how we do things.

High Quality, Memorable Gifts

My partner and I have made four purchases from Form Function Form and we've loved each experience and each item. Not only are the folks at the store super friendly, they're also very helpful in guiding buyers to the perfect gift. Our most recent purchase was birthday gift for a friend turning 60. We gave her a journal with her hometown stamped in the leather. She LOVES it! And she told us it was her most memorable/favorite gift.

Great gift!

I bought this as a gift for husband, and it was perfect! I'm very happy with the quality, as always.

Beautiful Custom Gifts!

I recently got custom leather journal covers to give as gifts, and FFF did an amazing job. Shawn was always prompt to reply, patiently answered my many questions, and delivered a stellar custom product! I would absolutely recommend Form Function Form - they use high quality leather and engraving, and make great gifts (including self-gifts!). Love the journal cover idea so that the notebook inside can be swapped out whenever needed and the cover can be used forever!

Perfect Graduation Gift

I purchased the Slip Notebook Cover - City Series as a law school graduation present for a friend and former colleague and it was the perfect gift. The notebook cover was beautifully done, and felt upscale and professional while still having a ton of personality (rare in the world of office goods). The recipient was blown away by how personalized it was, including a map of his hometown of Pensacola, his initials on the cover and a custom message on the inside. I ordered the cover under somewhat of a time crunch and was delighted with the ease of ordering online and the quick turnaround. I will definitely order again for future gifts as the options for customization make these truly special.

Fast, Custom Work That Doesn't Disappoint

I ordered a Slip Notebook Cover - City Series for my wife for our 3rd anniversary. My wife opened her gift and said "Wow. This is incredible." The city detail on the outer cover is quite intricate. The custom engraving on the inside cover was exactly where and what I requested. Shawn does super quality work, and I truly wouldn't go to anyone else for any other leather products. 5/5 would recommend to everyone I know.
