  • 100% Hand Crafted

    • Display your special message in this hollowed out book by slipping your work into the built in pocket. We take great pride crafting our OnePage Press keepsake books. All the materials are of the highest quality from the hardwood frames, the "SoftTouch" lamination that feels like real leather and the metallic paper used for the inside jacket material. We pay attention to details like the authentic book headband, real paper trim around the book block that is scored by hand to resemble the pages of a real book.

    • The wood and heavy binder board gives the book stength and the weight of a quality leather bound book. This hand crafted process enables us to customize your own personalized book in virtually any color, finish and size.

    Feature 2 Sturdy Construction

    The book is made with very heavy materials to compensate for the hollowed-out middle. We use sturdy basswood for the frame and the heaviest davey board (.098) for construction of the book's jacket and block.

    Feature 3 Matt/Leather Finish

    We use speacial "Soft Touch Matte" lamintating film on the jackets of the book that offers an icredibly smooth velvet feel, similar to leaather. The lamination also protects the book from scratching and dirt. The book can be easily cleaned.

    Feature 4 Headband

    Similar to a real book we use actual headband material that gives the book a look of quality. Also, each book is bound with a proprietary technique that provides a deep gutter that give a book a distintive look unlike any other book.

    Featrure 5 Paper covered block

    The wooden block (frame) is wrapped in thick paper that is hand scored with a razor blade to give an appearance of paper pages.



The idea started out as a hobby when I started making one page books in college. Over many years I would write and present poems to friends and family as gifts. Friends started to ask if I could make these books for them and there was a basis for a business. over many years we've been refining and improving the books in terms of both the overall look and contruction quality.

Because the business is new and the volume is relatively low, the operation is actully performed in our studio garage in back, with our binding equiment and tools. Because the business is more of a hobby we able to enjoy the ability to go out back and pour our creative energy into someting we truly love.

The best part is that is not our livelihood and all the proceeds and profit goes to our WriteToFeed.org charity where each book helps the lives of both pets and poeple. Basically, our passion and love for creativity will directly benefit animals and people in need.

Also, since the volume is so small we can create very custom and affordable books. For instance for and extra few dollars, we can customize your book with your name. Or we can creat a a completely custom book with your own jacket design and size and thickness to meet your special requirements - see our ideas for example of our custom books.
