It was recorded between Mexico City and Los Angeles and produced by Juan Carlos Noguel[4] and Armándo Ávila, who has also worked with RBD and La Quinta Estación.[5]

It is the first time Baute had collaborated with the artist, who had a very successful career on the mid-1990s and is also known as the author of hits like Ricky Martin's "Vuelve" and Chayanne's "Contra Vientos y Mareas".[5] On the deluxe edition, Spanish singer Marta Sanchez is featured on a new version "Colgando En Tus Manos".

Three singles were released from the album. The first single, "Colgando En Tus Manos" became a worldwide hit, mainly its re-release featuring Marta Sanchez. Second single "Tu No Sabes Que Tanto" became a moderate hit in most Latin markets. Third single, "Nada Se Compara A Ti" became a hit in Latin airplay charts, but failed to chart in the United States.

De Mi Puño y Letra became a commercial success for Baute. It reached No.11 on the Billboard Latin Pop Albums chart, his highest entry to date.[6] On Spain, the album reached No.2 and received a Platinum certification for 60,000 copies sold. It also reached No.22 on Mexico and received a Gold certification for 40,000 copies sold.
