How Our Notebooks Are Made
Handmade by a team of experts using techniques developed over generations, our notebooks are made by a small independent manufacturer in England. Once a design is finalised a print is made using a state-of-the-art digital printer to produce the cover. The cover is then measured, cut, folded, and hand-fixed around a 1500 mic caseboard, forming the hardcover
Whilst the cover is being produced the paper sections are folded and machine sewn into several sections before a binding glue is added to secure the cover into place whilst it is lowered into binding rollers.
The final stage of the process is the press. The notebooks are manually compressed using a Nipping Press to ensure the binding is fixed in place and to flatten the folded sections of the book.
Our paper is milled by James Cropper PLC in Cumbria, England; a world-class paper products manufacturer who have been honing their expertise since 1845.
Sustainable Sources and Practices
James Cropper PLC ensures that the paper they mill is sourced from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits and has been awarded both FSC and PEFC certifications.
Our notebook manufacturer contributes to the Woodland Trust Carbon Capture Programme and, alongside this, we use fully recyclable packaging and make donations to charities fighting climate change.
