Pep City Custom Journals

Build From Scratch / Case Studies / Foiled / Printed Pages

Omnicom London got in touch with us to manufacture and print a set of 3000 custom journals for the start of the 2016 Euro’s. There was no brief from the client on what the custom journals should look like apart from they needed it in three weeks, so Bookblock made a series of physical mock ups for the design team to pick and choose from.

The chosen design to go forward to manufacture was a modern style notebook in our white faux leather, soft bound with custom printed interior pages and teamed with a soft touch custom printed slip case.

We printed a single color print throughout on 90 GSM uncoated ivory paper.

Instead of the normal vertical flat elastic strap, we created a horizontal white elastic cord with a easy to use tab.


At Bookblock we are primarily bookbinders and manufactures, we hold some ranges in stock but what becomes exciting is our ability to design and manufacture any style of custom journals, notebooks and leather goods.

Omnicom were uncertain of what style they wanted, they had a few ideas and had seen a few models but our design team work alongside their marketing team to ensure the end product was spot on.

We hold a huge range of raw materials in stock to ensure we can match pantones in our leather and non-leather covers, and our design service can always add features to notebooks quickly and easily.


Book Block can print any sized notebook or journal to your exact requirements we have a range of printing presses and finishing machinery to ensure we create the perfect custom journal for you or your client. This also means we can print your customised notebooks very quickly.

Our custom printing service has a minimum order quantity of 250 notebooks although printing does get significantly cheaper as quantities increase, we delivery notebooks and custom journals worldwide. Pepcity had all 3000 notebooks manufactured and delivered to Italy in three weeks.
