Mitercraft Wood Bookmarks Hand Made in America - Functional Art for Your Favorite Books - Photograph of Black Oak Trees in Yosemite by Mike DeCesare
Each of our wooden bookmarks is handcrafted from carefully selected, environmentally responsible wood that only comes from well managed forests. This scary looking old black oak tree photo taken in Yosemite National Park with added digital painting treatment is a collaboration between photographer Mike DeCesare and Mitercraft. The final image is printed using durable non fading UV ink directly on one side of our new larger beech and walnut wood bookmark while the back is left blank showing the beautiful wood grain. A hand cut brown suede tassel adds the finishing touch to the tone and design, plus it helps keep your book's pages well marked. The exceptional wood grain we select adds a great deal to the natural beauty of each bookmark and will truly make yours a one-of-a-kind. Take a moment to explore our wide variety of collectible bookmarks.
We are so fortunate to collaborate with talented artists who share their work to further enhance our products. Pacific Northwest based photographer Mike DeCesare captures what is so special and unique about the landscapes he visits – rugged terrain, wind-swept beaches, strong contrasts in color. His philosophy is to bring the viewer inside the image to feel an emotional connection.
Craftsmanship and Stewardship Make the Difference
Nestled in a hundred-acre forest of lush, green ferns and towering fir and cedar trees, Mitercraft is a company truly inspired by its surroundings. Using only hand-selected, sustainably harvested wood, we celebrate its natural beauty by hand-making products that allow the glory to be showcased. Our passion leads us to design unique bookmarks with pride that only comes from a handcrafted process.
We’re excited to be a part of the resurgence of makers and old-world craftsmanship. We’ve been handcrafting our bookmarks with the same multi-step work process since 1991. Technology may come and go, and it certainly helps enhance our products, but there is no substitute for good, old-fashioned woodworking that produces heirloom quality products. Our complex production steps include precision cutting, laminating, shaping, sanding, polishing, finishing, laser engraving, drilling, and tasseling.
Our love and respect for the environment and the extraordinary surroundings in which we live guides our workplace practices. We take care to recycle leftover pieces into other products, making each a unique work of art. When a piece is ready to be shipped we hand prepare it, sealing it in a clear, protective sleeve with artist information. What arrives at your doorstep is a creative, handmade, thoughtfully crafted product from start to finish.
