PET PICKS: Vintage-Inspired Bookplate Labels

After months of urging from one of my neighbors, I've finally created a collection of dog and cat bookplate labels for Best Friends Studios. You might ask, what exactly is a bookplate label? Dating back to 15th century Germany, bookplates are decorative labels typically pasted into the front inside cover of a book to identify its owner. Often, these small labels bore beautiful illustrations, motifs or crests that related to the owner of the book.

Our new Bookplate Collection features dogs and cats from restored vintage postcards, printed on high-quality adhesive labels. Each can be personalized with the name of your choice and your favorite typeface. I can't think of a better gift for teachers who love dogs or cats...I know my kids' teachers are constantly lending out books! Check out the entire's a much classier alternative than scrawling your name in the cover of a book with a Sharpie! Ellen
