 What are the choices for filler paper?

  • Filler paper choices are 65 pages of LINED, DOT GRID, or COMBO paper (lined on front and grid on the back)- both are 100% Post Consumer Recycled, OR 50 pages of SKETCH paper which is 30% Recycled, Acid Free & Archival.
  • CUSTOM PAGES can be included at the beginning or end of your notebook. PLEASE NOTE: We can print a repeating custom page for orders over 500 notebooks.
  • The cost per custom page is about $.50/book in addition to the regular pricing if you submit a Print Ready file. A Print Ready file is a file that we can print without further manipulation. If the file requires any design work, our hourly rate is $85 for design work.

 What are the choices for cover colors:

  • 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 file 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 $85. 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?

    • We do not offer free shipping on custom orders.  We will find the most economical option for shipping your notebooks.
