Wish we had more time to visit. Would love to explore if they offer book rebinding. Their paperwork would look beautiful in some find leather bound editions. We definitely will explore their offerings online.

Take some time to have a good look around these stores. Their note pads, cards and paper make a great gift. They are timeless and beautiful. I always find something and have a wonderful collection of their paper.

One of the stores shows small demos. Don't think there are "factory tours" the way you are thinking.
