I currently don't sell any Midori leather or fabric covers, but there are many Etsy shops that provide all types of covers in many sizes! Please search on Etsy for covers for the notebooks.
Unfortunately, at this time, I am no longer accepting complex custom orders. It will be on a case by case basis if I'm able to do any custom orders so I can focus on current orders for the shop. Please contact me if you have any questions about existing notebooks or if you have any suggestions for the shop!
At this time, I do not offer a rush service, and orders are made in the order they are received. If you need your order by a certain date, please contact me prior to ordering to determine if I can meet your shipping date. Rush requests after ordering cannot be guaranteed. For expedited USPS shipping, please choose either USPS Priority Mail or USPS Priority Mail Express. For international expedited shipping (excluding USPS) such as FedEx or DHL, please contact me prior to ordering.

----- Travelers Notebook -----

If you are interested in the A5 Slim size, I would recommend the Wide size option from the shop. The A5 Slim size is listed as 8.3" x 4.9" and the traditional Wide size is 8.25" x 5". Since the sizes are very close (0.05" x 0.1" difference), it would be a great option. When placing an order for the A5 Slim size, if you need it cut exactly at 8.3" x 4.9", please leave a note at checkout.
If you are purchasing a notebook with Tomoe River, Strathmore, Shiraoi, Onion Skin or any other custom papers and would like an alternative cover added to the notebook instead of the kraft brown or black options, please order the specialty paper notebook and leave a note at checkout which cover you would like me to use from the shop. Please note not all covers are available in the largest size (Extra Wide / A5) when placing your cover request.
If you are looking for square corners (no corner rounding), I can exclude the corner rounding after cutting the notebooks. Please leave a note at checkout that you want square corners on your notebooks.
Here are all the options I offer by request:
- Dots: 3.7mm, 4mm, 5mm (default)
- Grid: 3.7mm, 4mm, 5mm (default), 6.5mm
- Lined: 5mm, 6mm, 6.5mm (default), 8.7mm college ruled
Please leave a note at checkout that you want a custom size for the grid, dots or lined if preferred. It must be one of the options listed above.

I had to reorder the same samples twice because I lost the samples from the first time I ordered them. That's on me. But it takes a lot longer than one would think for some tiny little squares of paper to reach my house.
