About Us

Howdy, y'all! I'm so glad you're here. 

You're probably wondering a few things about the personalities behind Red Pen Travelers.

 Toni Gatlin of Red Pen Travelers Handcrafted Leather Notebooks

I'm Toni Gatlin, a native Texan gleefully ensconced in Austin with my husband and our little rescue mutt named Buddy. Hubs provides design expertise and I do all the leathercraft and run the business while Buddy contributes to general office cheer.

Toni Gatlin and Buddy

I earned the nickname Miss Red Pen because I can be slightly picky about words. (Ahem.)

Since childhood, I've been an avid collector of books, journals, calendars, stationery, and pens. This shop is the happy overflow of those obsessions. 

I'd love to hear from you! I'm delighted to consider custom orders, so do let me know your creative ideas. 

Y'all come hang out with me on Facebook and Instagram. It's fun over there!
I share nifty stuff and exclusive discounts in my email updates, so make sure you're in the loop.
