Since I am no longer a premium member, I can't do polls!! - which is how I preferred to ask. Would you be interested in a handmade journal? Linked are some photos (1-5) I took of some trial-and-error journals I made. The ones that will actually be sold will be 9"x6" (these are about 10"x5") and will have 60 pages (full outer cover) or 64 pages (covered spine only), costing approximately $15-$17 (ideally, I'll confirm when I start to make them). I added a comparison pic too, just to give you an idea as to the size and the color of the paper (6). If you or someone you know wants a journal with white paper, I'll do that as soon as I get the chance to buy the paper. There won't be any line paper as of right now, but possibly in the future. This is all for my senior economics project, which officially starts in October and ends in November, though I plan to start selling my product before then because I thoroughly enjoy making these in just the four I've made. The plan is to set up an Etsy and/or a storenvy store with some ready-to-ship journals and a customize journal (where the buyer selects the fabric(s) they would like to be on their journal). I'm also thinking of finding someone to make an intractable flash - with the two templates I plan to use - and allow customers to view what their journal would look like with their desired fabric(s). The fabric is a first-come-first-serve basis, as the fabric I will be using will only be able to provide for about two or three journals depending on its usage. I just about have everything I need to begin production right away, but I will not begin until mid August because of college applications, an AP project, and the beginning of school ( + our high school retreat ).
If you or someone you know is interested, please let me know in the comments. Feel free to ask questions and give advice, I'm completely open to it since I would like to make my own money throughout the school year with this.

More information regarding all of this will be available over the next month. I hope that this sparks an interest in you or someone you know!!
