Custom Notebooks

We are familiar with receiving custom notebooks for a long time now. Companies that choose to promote their brands with personalized promotional products usually choose to give branded notebooks.

Going back in history, from 12 Century China, further to 1440 when Gutenberg revolutionised the printing press by inventing mobile letters and going forward to the enlightenment period of the 18th century, we can see the importance of preserving the written word.

While the level of information has considerably grown in the modern era, a need for a memory aid has emerged in the shape of a group of white sheets tied together as an incipient notebook.

In time, the white pieces of paper, usually lined by hand, suffered a modernization process with squares and lines for better writing, calculations or drawings.

Brands soon started to offer clients branded notebooks with the logo of the company. No matter how we call them (notebook, diary, pad) and how we use them, custom notebooks are amongst the traditional promotional products.

FEATURES OF A BRANDED NOTEBOOK

Today, the models of available notebooks vary not only by the ruling but also by other features as well, which you are invited to discover further. Some new information and a small guide will be useful when deciding on what branded notebooks are suitable for your company.

1. STYLE

The style is usually decided based on the recipient of the product, the budget and the message that you want to send. You can choose an elegant style or a simple, yet powerful one.

2. SIZES AND GRIPPING SYSTEMS

The most used sizes for a notebook are A5 and A6. A4 are also handy for employees and students. Kids receive very well the small A7 notebooks. In terms of spine systems: with spirals or classic, with a vertical or horizontal spine, with a rubber band, with a magnetic or simple flap and so on.

3. COVER TYPE

Hardcovers are usually for diarys and soft covers for small notebooks. Multisensory marketing has brought various improvements by introducing soft and flexible covers for A4 notebooks.

The surfaces patterns are different from one material to another. One can often find materials as special cardboards, thick paper, fake leather, and PVC as covers. You can surprise your clients by picking more unconventional materials like recycled cardboard, textiles, cork or felt.

4. PAGES – NUMBERS, PAPER TYPES AND RULING

All notebook descriptions include most of the time the number of pages. Sometimes, you’ll find the number of sheets instead. You need to remember that one sheet means two pages.

All brands wish to improve their image in the face of clients and contractors. The paper quality is important in this matter. You can pick a porous paper (offset), matte coated or glossy coated. The type of paper will also impact the customization process, especially if you want your logo printed on the corners of the pages.

The types of ruling you can choose from are: lines, no lines at all (blank pages) or with squares. A new style of ruling is called dots grid, very appreciated by those who are passionates about journals, planning or technical sketches. You can impress even more if you insert a presentation of your brand or of your most important products.

These can be part of the notebook or be ordered extra by the client. Not all notebook types allow inserts, that’s why it’s better to find out if the manufacturer offers this feature.

5. Design and accessories

A special design, various accessories or including the notebook in an office set can boost the decision of a client. You can choose from notebooks with USB sticks, with pockets or with wireless charger integrated into the cover.

When the winter holidays are getting closer, you can give a diary, a notebook or a planner, usually along with a branded pen or power bank.

PERSONALIZED NOTEBOOKS – PRINTING METHODS

Take into consideration the features of the cover, the material and the accessories in order to choose the suitable personalization method. What you intend to print on the notebook will influence your decision.

You have multiple personalization choices. You can use any of the one below:

  • Serigraphy (screen printing)
  • Digital printing or UV digital printing
  • Full-colour printing
  • Laser engraving on metal accessories
  • Embossing on PVC or faux leather

The latest trend for a custom notebook is the one with light-up logo. With the help of a laser, a cut is made into the cover, marking the details of the logo. On the inside, there is a LED system with battery. An on/off button will make the logo light up on the notebook`s cover.
