Our Heirloom Ledgers are designed and bound for the purpose of becoming a family heirloom. Each Heirloom Ledger is Smyth Sewn- signatures of paper are sewn together and bound to the hard cover boards. This binding technique allows your Ledger to lay flat and endure years of use. The Ledger is 12 in by 7.25 in, a unique size inspired by our own family ledger. The front and spine display a gold foiled design on grey or dark green linen cloth.
There are 200 numbered and unlined pages. These pages are unlined to encourage a less structured form of filling your Ledger with memories.
We encourage you to place your ledger in a common space to promote its use. Pen, pencil or marker - do not worry about making this perfect or consistent! Let your children doodle on the pages and your guests flip through the pages and write their own message. Write down historical moments and the little moments that don't make it to Instagram or Facebook. Brainstorm the Thanksgiving menu on its pages or jot the funny thing your toddler said at bedtime. Ask your grandmother to write a letter to your children. (Check our Instagram for examples from our own family ledger.)
No matter your age or where you are in life, there is no better time to record the simple moments of life that create all the meaning in the end. Your words and the words written by all that grace your home will be treasured in the time to come. Our greatest hope is that all who contribute will find joy in this heirloom in the making.
Add a meaningful quote to the front cover page for an additional charge. Here are several examples, feel free to choose your own.
