Win a personalised notebook from BookBlock Original

It’s no secret that I love stationery. I especially love notebooks and always treat myself to a new one whenever I get the urge to re-organise my life and our family finances. I have different notebooks for all sorts of reasons; holidays, courses, blog conferences, to do lists etc so when BookBlock Original recently got in touch and asked if I would like a personalised notebook, I was keen to find out how it would be personalised.

BookBlock Original

BookBlock Original enable customers to order a notebook with a cover in their own style. It’s the perfect opportunity for designers, photographers and creative bods to design their own notebook by simply uploading their bespoke design or favourite photograph for it to be digitally printed onto the notebook.

notebook 2

The notebooks can be completely customised down to the paper, elastics and even the ribbon making it a completely unique piece of stationery.

I have been sent a beautiful notebook with one of my favourite photographs on. The quality is really lovely and I like how they’ve matched the ribbon and elastic colours to the photograph (of course, this can be personalised to suit your own preferences)

notebook 1

Since it’s launch, thanks to the successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2015 thte BookBlock Original has since showcased the work of Mattias Adolfsson, Rob Flowers, Annu Kilapeinen and Supermundane on its soft-touch covers, along with many other leading designers, illustrators and popular bloggers.
