Promotional Custom Notebooks

Design Promotional Notebooks For Your Customers

Custom Notebooks are a great way to promote your brand. Even in our hyper-connected, always-on, digital lifestyles, there’s something to be said about the cathartic nature of personalized notebooks. Crossing off tasks from your to-do list just doesn’t feel the same when you click a checkbox as it does when you cross it off on paper.

It’s hard to stay focused and give respected attention during meetings when taking notes on a laptop with emails and messages. Having a notebook to write down notes keeps you actively listening throughout the meeting. A written notepad is a trusted place to jot down reminders, ideas, task lists, meeting notes, and doodles. There’s bonafide evidence proving that the act of writing something down helps us remember things better, even if we don’t always go back to the note that we took.

Custom notebooks have a range of premium details with carefully crafted design elements that tactfully show off your brand. Build out your company stationery or use it for custom printed journals for seminars, trade show swag, conferences, company events, business reviews, corporate gifts, or as an alternative to a sales sheet or brochure after a prospective client meeting. A custom notebook is a practical marketing item and is less likely to end up in the trash.

Simply put, personalized notebooks, notepads and journals are great quality customizable gifts that fit nearly any occasion or event.

Don’t just build a run-of-the-mill notebook with off-the-shelf default options, craft a notebook from scratch that brings not just form and function together, but that accentuates your brand in a way that whoever cracks it open cannot forget about your brand from the first page to the very last — leaving them eager to get their hands on another.

Types of Promotional Notebooks

Are you ready to use promotional notebooks to promote your business but not sure which ones to choose?

Here at Anthem Branding, we offer a wide range of types of custom notebooks, each with their own bespoke features and benefits. Some of our most popular bespoke printed notebooks are:

  • Spiral bound
  • Book bound
  • Stitched
  • Refillable
  • Hardcover
  • Softcover
  • Full color
  • Cloth hardcover
  • Memo pads
  • Reporter

Depending on the industry you operate within and your intended use for your notebooks, we can advise you on the best types for your business.
For example, if you plan to give branded notebooks as corporate gifts, then you will probably want to choose a more durable and high-end option, such as a book bound notebook or a stitched notepad.

Alternatively, if you want to give out custom printed notebooks at an upcoming tradeshow or as promotional items for giveaways, then you may prefer a more budget-friendly option, such as memo pads.

Not sure that custom notepads are the right choice for your business? We offer many more amazing custom promotional products, including Custom Sunglasses, Custom Branded Facemasks, and Custom Hats.


Paper Choices for Custom Notebooks

Did you know that you can even choose what type of paper to have in your branded notebook?

In fact, you can select the fibers used in the paper, the format of the paper, and its size, enabling you to create the ultimate promotional notebook that perfectly aligns with your brand messaging.

While this may not seem that important in the grand scheme of things, you may be surprised at just how much difference it can make to the overall customer experience.

Because who wants to receive a branded notebook where the ink keeps smudging or the paper keeps ripping?


Types of Paper

There are so many different types of paper that you can choose from, with options to suit all budgets and bespoke requirements.

From eco-friendly, biodegradable paper such as Kraft for brands that want to show off their sustainability efforts to waterproof paper that is suited to businesses that operate in the elements, we have paper types for everyone.

When it comes to choosing the right paper for your custom printed notebooks, make sure you think carefully about who will be using the notebooks and where.
