Ink Stamping on a Leather Journal Cover

by Kymona Tracey

Hello, everyone! Kymona here to show you ink stamping on a leather journal cover.

2020 has taught us a lot about not taking things and people for granted. Now that the world is slowly opening up and people are leaving home more and more, we must stay safe and document everything we do. Keeping a journal is a great way to do that. Making it a photo journal is even better.

That is why I created a journal out of leather and stamped simple sentiments on the cover.

Let's take a look at my leather journal cover:

Look at the close-up of this journal cover. The stamping is crisp with the correct ink: no smudge, no running, and no stray ink marks.

What thickness of leather did you use? I’m looking for a stamping platform that I can use with leather up to about 3mm thick.
