How Your Custom Notebooks Are Made
Your designs are printed using professional printing techniques onto high gloss paper, resulting in a permanent print that won’t fade or scratch off over time. Crafted by our skilled bookmakers, your handmade custom notebooks are finished with incredible attention to detail. The glossy covers are completed with 150 sides of luxury artists paper, with the final size and weight resembling that of a paperback book.
All of our notebooks have a laminate, gloss cover, so if they get a little dirty you can gently wipe them clean with a cloth.
Use your creativity to create an incredibly unique notebook by designing both sides of the product. Make sure you keep within the template on our online design studio, to prevent any important elements of your design being cut off. Experiment with adding text so everyone knows your notebook belongs to you and can prevent it from going walkabouts – scrawl your name across the front or back of the book so it never gets lost. You can even design the spine of the notebook to add your own images or even some extra text – click the product preview button in the design interface to get the full look.
use your new custom notebooks as a handy way to keep track of general to-do lists, shopping lists, and notes. Keeping it on a side table or somewhere it will always be seen will help you remember the little, but important things, that need to get done. A beautifully designed front cover to match your home decor will help the notebook fit in with the aesthetic of your home, wherever you decide to keep it.
Create branded notebooks for your business, so that your employees always have somewhere to jot down notes or ideas during meetings. The branding will strengthen the company's image as well as provide necessary stationary for your hard-working employees. Whether you work for a restaurant, an advertising agency, or anywhere else you can think of, give your employees the chance to be creative and hold a competition for them to submit notebook cover designs. The winner's design can be printed company-wide and they could even receive a special prize.
Notebooks are an incredibly popular product - everyone needs one at one point, whether they're an artist themselves or work in an office, attend school or other classes, or spend time at home. Widen your audience by providing notebooks featuring your unique designs, allowing people to buy a product that they can actually use in everyday life. Your work will likely be seen every day, not only by the customer but by their colleagues and friends too.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
