Which notebook?

If you’ve looked at our products page, you’ll already know that we offer three main types of customisable notebook. You can purchase luxurious and hard-wearing hardback books, simple-but-functional twin wire-bound books, or even refill pads. But what type of notepad should you choose? This depends on what you intend to use your notebook for.

1. Hardback notebooks

Hardback customised notebooks are ideal for recording important information that you’ll need to keep for a long time. For example, if you need to record the phone numbers and addresses of important contacts, it’s best to do so in a tough, hardy notebook that you’re unlikely to lose or damage. Hardback notebooks are also perfect for individuals who work in creative industries. If you’re writing a novel or constructing the plot of a film, for example, you’ll probably want to keep your research notes and narrative ideas in a notebook that will cope well with the stresses of everyday life. In short, we recommend that you choose a hardback customised notebook if the information you intend to record in it is especially important and is likely to be consulted repeatedly.

2. Refill pads

Refill pads are ideal for brainstorming. You can easily scribble down ideas and tear pages out to share with others if necessary. They are also affordable and easy to replace. If you like to write in order to thrash out ideas (either for work or in your personal life), but don’t need to hold onto the notes themselves for more than a couple of days, refill pads might be the perfect choice for you. These customised notepads are the perfect medium for the dynamic go-getter who needs to scribble down temporary notes and come up with fresh ideas ‘on the fly’.

3. Twin wire notebooks

A twin wire notebook represents the perfect compromise between the hardiness of a hardback book and the convenience of a refill pad. These notebooks are highly affordable, so you won’t have to worry about using up pages to quickly thrash out new ideas. However, they are also relatively resilient, so they’re a good repository for more fully-formed ideas and vital information. If you need a flexible, versatile notebook, we recommend choosing a twin wire book.

Whatever you need one for, our customised notebooks will serve you well!
