7321 Design Vintage Journals

New! Vintage Journals

We are so pleased to introduce a brand-new line of journals that we have added to our sidelines assortment. These vintage-style journals from 7321 Design have only recently become available in the United States and we're thrilled to present them to you. Available in four styles that are inspired by literary classics and the magic of travel, the journals come in 5 sizes, 120 pages each of blank, lined, or grid pages. Wrapped in covers made from a pleasing piqué-textured paper, the softcover journals have beautiful stitched bindings in contrasting thread colors. With suggested list prices of $5-$15, they offer you and your customers an undeniable value.
