How Your Custom Spiral Bound Notebook Is Printed & Made
Notebook printing is a speciality of ours. Handmade by skilled bookmakers and craftsmen, your notebook is finished with skill and detail. Your designs are printed onto the thick, hard cover for the front and back. Once cut to size, the glossy covers are joined with 50 pieces of luxurious artist paper and a metal spiral binding. The finished result is beautiful. HD print of your art, where every fine line and detail is reproduced to perfection, on a lustrous cover.
As your customised notebooks have a glossy laminate cover, if you find they get a little dirty or dusty, simply wipe them clean with a cloth.
When creating your design, ensure you keep within the parameters of the design interface template. You can use the resizing tool to make your artwork larger or smaller, depending on its size. Keep in mind that the spiral binding will cut into a few millimetres of your design, so any important details should be kept as centralised as possible. If you click on "Preview" you will be able to see what your design looks like with the spiral binding.

Created some artwork as a gift for a friend for it to be printed onto things, the quality of the images and the notebook itself were amazing. Defo worth the price and quick service/delivery.
I was very pleased with the product as it was made for my A level art and this product has helped me towards my coursework. Hope to order more items in the future.
really good quality products very happy with what i received, however, missing the sample fabric that I had ordered which was disappointing.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
