Custom Notebooks

Notebooks custom printed with logos, photos and more.

Notebooks are a daily necessity for students, business people, writers, contractors and so many others, it only makes sense to offer custom notebook printing options. Seeing someone write in their own professionally branded notebook evokes a sense of authority and class that a generic solid-color notebook from the office store just can't match.

Our pre-printed notebook sheets come in several ruled options: Wide/Legal Ruled, Medium/College Ruled, Narrow Ruled and 4x4 Quad Ruled.

We'll print, bind and ship your notebooks in 3-5 business days.

Our spiral notebooks are extremely durable and customizable. We provide a range of options for spiral colors, cover materials and finishing options which you can view in the price calculator.

We also offer Wire-O binding for a more professional and sophisticated-looking product, but please be aware these do not lay perfectly flat while flipped around like the spiral books do, which may not be ideal for some uses. Make your custom notebook printing the "Best In Class" by printing with DocuCopies today.

FAQ

What kind of binding is best for custom notebooks?

For most uses, we recommend spiral binding when printing custom notebooks for every day use. While the metal Wire-o binding is very attractive and professional looking, spiral notebooks have several advantages:

WHY SPIRAL?
  • Least expensive custom notebooks binding
  • Most durable and long-lasting
  • Lays flat with pages turned 180°

Whichever binding method you choose for your custom notebooks, you'll be pleased to find an assortment of binding colors and cover materials to match your theme.

Can I get a custom size notebook?

Absolutely! You'll find a wide range of sizes in the dropdown list. If none of these dimensions work for your custom notebook project, rest assured that we can generally custom trim your notebook to any size (up to 8.5x11 portrait). Please contact us for larger sizes.

Can you make graph paper notebooks?

Yes we can. Students, architects and contractors rely on precision-ruled 4x4 quad paper for measuring and calculations every day.

Choose the 4x4 Quad ruled paper option on the dropdown (4 squares per square inch) for custom graphing notebooks.

What kind of paper do custom notebooks use?

To absolutely avoid show-through in your printed booklet, we recommend either of the 32/80# Text options or heavier. In our experience this is a safe choice for booklets printed with photos, graphics and text alike.

For booklets where most of the content is text, most people are happy with the 28/70# Text Smooth. This is a mid-weight paper and has minimal show-through, which is much less noticeable with text-oriented pages where the text is more or less aligned back-to-back.

Will I receive a digital proof before you print my booklets?

In most cases, we do not automatically send a digital proof. If you do want a digital proof first, no problem! Just request this in the Job Notes. The reason for this is that the vast majority of files are setup correctly and require no reformatting or proofing. Most customers also want their job as fast as possible. Unfortunately with email, there is always the risk that the digital proof could end up in the Spam, Junk or Promotions folder, which is more likely to cause a delay in production than it is to stop a misprint from occurring.

But there are some cases in which we must receive proof approval before we can print. This includes:

  • Files which are not uploaded as JPG, PNG or PDF
  • Any time we make file edits at your request
  • If we happen to notice something that looks "wrong" but aren't sure

Is there a limit for saddle stitch binding page count?

Because of the way saddle stitch booklets are created, there are page-count limitations due to the thickness of the paper and length of the staples. The page limit for your booklets will depend on the paper you select.

Our thinnest paper for cheap booklets is the 20/50# Bond, which will allow up to 180 pages printed in your saddle stitch booklets.

Higher quality paper like the 32/80# Gloss is capped at 48 pages, while middle-weight papers fall in between.

Can you mail my printed booklets?

Yes we can. Select a Bulk Mailing option on the order form and upload your mailing list (Excel or CSV) with your files. If you need them folded in half and tabbed closed, this requires a custom quote: please fill in your job details to the best of your ability (including Bulk Mailing) and click "Save as Quote." Then you can email us and let us know you need pricing for folding and tabbing.
