I love my new scriptures. I love the personalization and the craftsmanship here is outstanding. Being able to add ribbons is nice because it helps in scripture study and I'm going on a mission. The leather is real and it is very supple. Some people have complained about the embossing, I can testify that it is real embossing and not printed. On my scriptures I can see the indents made as my name was pressed down.
The reason I left only four stars is because of a few small things that didn't bother me too much, but that I thought should be mentioned.
First, there are a few slight nicks in my leather.
Second, the ribbons aren't the same length. It's not bad, but it is noticable. I think for $230 scriptures that ought to be better.
Third, I believe they take scriptures from dessert book, and because their scriptures have quality control issues, LDS bookstore does too. So although my scriptures are nice, there are a few cosmetic flaws that came from the original supplier. Again, with such a hefty price tag I would hope for better quality control. However, I would still purchase again. The scriptures are stunning and make an amazing gift if you can afford it. I love them and wouldn't return. I was already expecting a few cosmetic flaws anyways. It helped that I read reviews.
