Answering your questions about selling custom notebooks and custom journals

This is an age-old question, in truth the only way to really differentiate is what you decide to write in your book. This will determine if its a custom journal, or a custom notebook. In terms of the physical differences, our journal is made with a spiral binder and is slightly larger than the custom notebooks. 

The custom notebook is also hardcover compared to the journal, which is a little more flexible due to the cover and spiral binding.

Our providers take great care to make sure that every custom journal and custom notebook leaves the print shop in the best condition. Using industry-leading digital printers, your designs will be vivid, crisp and full of color. The front cover of the custom notebook is scratch-resistant, while the custom journals feature a semi-gloss cover that protects the ink from everyday wear.

Shipping varies from each provider, you can always check the average time for production, however, the shipping time will depend on where your customer is located in relation to the provider.

Shipping costs are always clearly stated by each provider. They can vary from region to region, for example, delivery within the US could be cheaper than international delivery. This is always calculated for you, however, you should always be aware, especially if you plan to ship worldwide.

One of the major benefits for merchants is the fact that we do not have a minimum order quantity. That means you only place an order when you make a sale…Sounds great right. No more cluttering up your bedroom with boxes of stock, you don’t even need to worry about investing in stock, allowing you to remain risk-free to create amazing designs. 

We would suggest ordering samples of your designs, this is good practice and will also help you understand what your customers can expect to receive when they place their orders with you.

It’s hard to say exactly as each application can vary the strength of the sticker bond. However, for an internal application, for example on a laptop or window, the sticker will stay in place for a long time…As people look to customize their belongings, the number of sticker-covered laptops is increasing.

No special care is required, to keep the surfaces clean you can simply wipe with a dry, soft, clean cloth to gently brush any dust or dirt off from the center of the book outwards.

The base color of the printing surfaces is white, so if you use a .png file with transparent layers, the white color will show through. Make sure that you take this into account when designing your custom journals and custom notebooks.

Spiral vs. hardcover journals: what's best?

custom notebooks spiral vs hardcover

Depending on people’s needs, custom notebooks must be functional and durable, which means a sturdy cover that will hold up to months or years of use, spiral binding so they can lay flat and be written on. If there’s a document pocket, you’ve hit the jackpot – it’s these little things that matter. And with our beautiful blank, you definitely have.

Spiral notebooks seem to have a few advantages over their hardcover cousins. They lay flat, generally have a sturdy backboard, they can be used with both pages open or one side folded under. If you ever need to rip a page from a notebook, you can make a real mess with a hardcover one, so spiral notebook wins again. Spiral notebooks are also great for drawing and sketching, though they snag easily, so they’re not the best to carry around.

Hardcover notebook does look sleeker, however, if one were to use it as a journal, which may have to survive trips, and a year of daily entries under what may sometimes be less than ideal conditions, it will wear out quicker. But because our custom hardcover journals come in a stunning all-over print, your customers could be tempted to treating it with care for their great-grandchildren to see. 

Make your own journals

Custom notebooks and journals are one of the most common gifts to give for birthdays and celebrations. Not only that, as we move into a more digital age, people are actually more likely to pick up a pen and write down notes than they are to type them into a device. In fact, since 2011, sales of paper-based journals and notebooks have increased.

According to Moleskine, a luxury notebook maker, sales are up by more than 50% when compared to five years ago, with revenue increasing to $128 million per year. 

This is contrary to the common belief that as we type more we write less, the truth is that we actually still like to write, doodle and log our actions as much as we ever have. For some, the idea of typing away on a laptop in a meeting is rude, whereas jotting down ideas and notes in a notebook is totally acceptable. 

With all these things in mind, creating your own custom journal store could be a great little money maker, especially if you can build a following for niche, fun or quirky designs that customers will be only too happy to show off in their meetings.

custom ruled notebooks

Choosing your custom notebook style

You can argue that they all do the same job, and there is a good reason for believing so. However, don’t underestimate the value that having ruled lines, or blank pages can have on your customer’s buying preferences. 

Rule lovers – For those who love the ruled line, there is a simple need for structure. Most likely your market for a ruled line custom journal is writing notes, lists, and longer form texts that require lines to keep everything neat and tidy. 

Rule breakers – The creatives who don’t need structure, in fact, they thrive without it. If you want to create print on demand journals that encourage ideas, scribbles, and insights into the creative mind, then go for a custom journal with blank pages.
