Top Questions and Answers

What size Book Buckle does the small fit?

The small Book Buckle fits a book up to 9 inches in length (from the top of the book spine to the bottom).  This generally works well for your typical reading book in hard or paper back.

What size Book Buckle fits a large book?

The large Book Buckle fits a 9″ to 12″ book from the top to the bottom (top of spine to the bottom of the spine/book). These are perfect for large books like your typical text book.

What if my book is longer than 12 - inches?

At this time we are not taking customer orders. We have found that a small or large Book Buckle bookmark will be sufficient for the majority of books.

Should I buy a small and a large Book Buckle?

We recommend buying the size you feel will fit the typical size book you read. If you typically read smaller books and paper backs, the small would be best, as the large will give you a very long book-marker (the journal-like attachment) and may bother you. But, if you tend to read more hardback books that are 9″ and up, go with the large.

Are all Book Buckles the same width; do they fit any width spine?

Book Buckles is now only making bookmarks with a 5/8″ width. We have found the, besides beginner books, most books have a spine width larger than a 5/8″ width.

• 5/8″ wide, will fit a 5/8″ spine and up.

In the past we made 3-sizes, so if you need more information in regards to a Book Buckle you already own, please read on.
• 3/8″ wide, will fit a 3/8″ spine and up, which are typically seen in smaller children books.
• 7/8″ wide, will fit a 7/8″ spine and up.

Typically your 5/8″ and 7/8″ are going to fit most standard reading books. Simply measure the spine of your book to be sure.

Who are Book Buckles made for?

Book Buckles were created for anyone who reads physical books. After continually losing her typical insert-style bookmark, Joanne started brainstorming the perfect way to mark her place. After nearly two years of prototypes and conceptualizing the perfect bookmark, the Book Buckle was born! Joanne and her two daughters, Amanda & Jennifer, made over 400 Book Buckles, build this website and attended shows. We are now using digital media to share our wonderful innovation with young and old readers alike.
As parents, we believe reading physical books is a must to education and the love of learning. Book Buckles was another way to get young minds excited about Books! Let them dress up their book and have fun marking their place!
