- We currently have 16 different cover colors. You can choose one cover color, or mix and match.
Can I submit a design to create my own journal?
- Yes, you may submit one Print Ready Image for your custom cover. For your cover, this means it is a black image with a white background saved as a PDF file.
I have a design in mind but need help making it. Can you help me with custom artwork?
- If design services are required, our hourly rate for design is $65. You can see some great examples of our custom work on our instagram feed or #mmncustomnotebooks.
What type of file do I need to submit?
- We require a PDF file.
Can I get a sample of my book?
- We provide a digital proof of your notebook cover for your approval before we begin printing. We do not provide a finished, physical sample of your notebook. An example notebook may be ordered through our website; this cost will be credited to your order if you decide to place an order.
How long will it take to get my notebooks?
- Once your proof has been approved, it takes approximately 2-6 weeks to print and assemble the books.
Do you offer free shipping?
