Hello! I can't wait until my bag is ready! I was wondering, how exactly is engraving on leather accomplished? Is it burned into the leather? I am curious as to how durable the engraving will be over the long term. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I’m a 5’4” woman. Would the regular size mailbag be mor appropriate for me? I’m concerned that the large mailbag would be to big for my size. I’m medium built.
