Everyone wants everything customized these days, but custom doesn’t always mean quality. So I was thrilled when Bookblock Original reached out to me offering to craft my very own The Paper Chronicles notebook … and the execution is indeed top-notch!
The process couldn’t be simpler: just upload your image, choose the color of your band and bookmark — and your sturdy design will soon be on its way! I love that the covers are super-thick and that the band can hold everything together, even the occasional receipt. This is a notebook meant to be taken out into the world and used (and hopefully filled with brilliant thoughts and plans).Bookblock Original started out by manufacturing custom notebooks for agencies and brands. After a lot of trial and error, they found a way to make one-off notebooks with full-bleed digitally printed covers, priced comparably to Moleskines no less. Whether you are a designer, illustrator or just a notebook lover, this is a fitting repository for your favorite artwork.These notebooks are printed in the UK, contain recycled paper and are definitely as professional and posh as anything stocked on store shelves. Prices begin at $18 and you can start your order here.
If you are interested in several — and here extra-luxe features like custom elastics, belly bands, printed inserts or foiled or debossed logos come into play — you want to go here. Just think, you could be the first bride on your block to give out custom notebooks to your wedding party!
