If you aren’t familiar, bookplates are printed book labels, usually pasted on the inside front of a book to indicate ownership. Bibliophiles of every kind will certainly appreciate the importance of a well-placed bookplate.
Bookplates encourage readers of all ages. They’re perfect for gifts, classrooms, and book-swapping parties. At Bookplates.com, you can choose and buy a pre-made classic design and print them from the website.
Stamps are another popular option for personal and professional libraries. There are a myriad of bookplate stamp sellers on Etsy. These particular bookplates were created by Etsy artists Trafalgar Square and Plurabelle.
And, (in case you were interested) Martha Stewart has her own bookplate-making guide. You can use them as custom labels, personalized favor tags and place cards. There’s even electronic bookplates for your iPad.
If you appreciate free as much as we do, here is a free printable by Lavender Blue Designs, featured just below. This entire set of sweet animal bookplates can be downloaded straight from the site and easily personalized!
