Everything you need to know, so you can build a notebook from scratch.

Any shape and any size.

Here at Bookblock we have our own hand bindery workshop and full automatic bindery factory, allowing us to make any style and size of Book.

With years of experience our team can manufacture any style of custom notebook, journal or leather folio. Our custom manufacture service allows you to customize every aspect of the notebook, so there is no shape or size we arent able to offer our customers.

Any paper, any weight.

We work with the the largest paper mills and suppliers in Europe and the world, which allows us to stock some of the finest papers available.

Not only do we work directly with paper mills, we also can buy from all the main paper distributors to ensure we can always find the right paper to suit your project, our experienced in house notebook designers can always advise you on the best paper for your project, just let us know if you need samples.

We can also mix paper stocks within the books to offer gloss photo pages, textured dividers, or transparent lining pages.

Cover materials & colours

We have thousands of different materials, in a huge range of colours, textures and grains.

We work with leather, Faux leather, Cloth, Suede, and vegan leather which allows you to make any style of notebook possible or if you want it to look like a Moleskine notebook we can do that too.

Our manufacturing team know everything there is to know about materials & would be happy to advise you through the maze of different options. Our huge range of cover materials, allows us to pantone match materials off the shelf, or on large orders we can manufacture the material exactly to your pantone if it doesnt already exist.

Cover customisations

We offer a selection of different branding techniques from a simple and subtle debossed logo, to a fully printed cover.

We have all the machinery and know how to transfer any design or logo on to our notebooks. We can offer pantone matched foils and inks, to add exact brand colour to any of our notebooks, we can also UV print full colour designs on to vegan, faux and real leather with incredible detail.
