For Branding to Take Note of, Look No Further Than Promotional Notebooks
Branded notebooks can make highly desirable resale merchandise, corporate gifts or promotional giveaways. A small batch of custom-printed notebooks with beautifully embossed covers could make a practical hand-out for an executive meeting, whilst full-colour printed notebooks are certain to make a meaningful brand impact at conferences, trade shows or events. Whatever the purpose or occasion, promotional notebooks fit the bill perfectly.
With the UK stationery market predicted to be worth an impressive £2.1billion by 2021, it's safe to say we're a nation of notebook lovers. And why wouldn't we be? After all, a beautiful notebook can encourage doodling, sketching, mind-mapping, brainstorming... And more! It's where we write to-do lists, jot down ideas and work out ideas.
On that note, research has actually shown physically writing out ideas rather than typing them can unlock a different part of the brain, which is only accessed when a deeper level of thinking is taking place. The meaning? Gifting a branded notebook to your customers or audience has the potential to help them unlock whole new levels of ability - and with your business at the heart of their activity!
Allow us to be bold here but it's a truth universally acknowledged that almost every single person in business will own at least one notebook. So why not make it a branded notebook that's printed with your company logo?
A promotional notebook has many uses and potential recipients; for example, you can hand them out to employees so they radiate professionalism in meetings; you can gift them to attendees of a corporate conference your brand has held; you can hand them out to stand visitors at trade shows.
However you choose to use them, branded notebooks are ideal for ensuring your business is in the hands (and minds!) of your colleagues, customers and clients. The result? Consistent brand awareness for your business and a practical promotional giveaway that can be used over and over again.
Think Luxe With Our Corporate-Friendly Branded Notebooks
Continuing on the path of corporate merchandise, associating your business name with renowned brands such as Castelli, or top pen brand Cross could give your marketing campaign a distinct edge of class. In fact, it could even give you a boost above the competition, or even just advertise your already-established business in a high-quality light.
Our Cross Medium Journal and Stratford Ballpen Gift Sets each includes a classic chrome Cross pen as well as an A5 promotional leatherette cover notebook, complete with ribbon page marker and elastic closure, and all supplied in a gift box for a sleek finishing touch. These sets make fantastic retirement gifts or rewards for recognising business milestones as well as executive Christmas gifts and are certain to keep your company name at the forefront of your customers' minds.
If you like the idea of a promotional notebook and pen set but want something on a slightly smaller budget, our Noir branded notebooks combine functionality and design all at great low prices. The classy black soft-touch covers combined with splashes of colour from the elastic closure, ribbon page markers and included pen give an understated look but broad appeal. The pen supplied with our A5 and A6 versions is our customer favourite Curvy Ballpen, which can also be printed with your marketing message for maximum advertising potential. In short? It's a cost-effective choice for any business and a fantastic way to ensure your branding stays present.
Screen Addicts, Maybe - But Don't Underestimate Promotional Notebooks
We may all be addicted to scrolling through our phones but research has shown using pen and paper is actually a far preferred means for the majority of people to jot down ideas or take notes. Why? Fundamentally, there's a real ease-of-access with using notebooks in place of a digital counterpart; for one thing, there's no need to try and work out where the mouse is, or wait for a tab to load...
Writing 'stuff' down by hand can also encourage better brainstorming, with research demonstrating physically writing out your ideas instead of typing them can allow you to access another part of your brain where there is a deeper level of thinking.
For ease-of-use and functionality, our A5 Spectrum Soft Touch Notebooks offer all the essentials you could possibly need, neatly ensconced within a soft-feel notebook - and at the lowest prices in the UK! If you're looking for the best value on a tried and tested customer favourite, these could be the perfect choice for your marketing campaign. They can be used anywhere and everywhere, whether your customers are scribbling down notes during their morning commute or use them during classes at school or university.
For A Soft Touch, Look No Further
It could be said the ‘soft feel’ or ‘soft touch’ finish is inspired by the popular Moleskine range. The Large Moleskine Hardback Ruled Notebook, in particular, is one of our customers’ favourites, with the top-quality product easily recognisable from the shelves of most retailers. Available to order in quantities as small as ten units, they have soft synthetic moleskin covers that are wonderfully tactile and can be debossed, printed or foil-blocked with your company logo in order to create the just-right impression for your business. Perfect for an exclusive run for customers or staff.
For form as well as function, wirobound covers mean the notebook can lay flat on a surface for writing. Our medium-sized wirobound journal notebooks are available in a variety of sizes ranging from A4 to A5, and we even have a version that includes a week-to-view diary layout on one leaf and lined paper on the other for a multi-purpose spiral-bound notebook that's ideal for use in offices, schools and colleges.
If you're after a high-impact promotional product but require a small quantity order, look no further than our A5 full-colour wrap journal. Available to order in just 25 units and with lined, dotted or plain paper, there's a version to suit your requirements. With its full-colour exterior, these branded notebooks are perfect for businesses that wish to repurpose their own campaign imagery or photography, serving as an extra means to reinforce advertising or marketing campaigns. We're talking wedding venues, photographers, fashion brands, hotel chains... The possibilities are countless. And vibrant!
