Pocket Sized Solutions for On-The-Go Ideas

 

For years you’ve been lugging around a composition notebook, maybe that’s what you used in college to keep all your ideas and designs in. It’s an old favorite but maybe not completely practical for ideas that come to you while you’re on the go. What you need is something smaller, pocket sized. There are small notebook options out there but many make you skimp on quality or customization, which isn’t what you need when you’re looking for a creative outlet.

Our Custom Notebooks have 48 pages of unabashed creative space with a completely unbranded cover! Printed with pristine quality and full color, these tiny notebooks will turn heads at trade shows or provide your employees some unity around the office.

Completely Unbranded Cover?

Yes! Other brands offering pocket sized notebooks put their name all over them. These notebooks are completely blank so you can put whatever you want on them without needing to work around someone else’s logo.

Choose from one of the 5 cover stocks to completely customize your Pocket Note. Maybe an edgy black with a bold design or kraft stock for a more rustic look:

  • 100# Gloss – light-weight medium gloss
  • 12 pt Gloss – standard-weight gloss
  • 100# Kraft – natural colored paper
  • 100# Black – medium-weight stock paper
  • 110# Pearlescent – medium-weight card stock with a pearly sheen

Covers can be printed single or double sided for our colored stocks, 5th color white comes standard so don’t worry about muddy or faded images. For the best results, we suggest you use our templates to make sure your art prints just the way you want it to.

Glossary of Sticker Terminology

Sticker terminology can get pretty confusing with all of the different types of stickers, stocks and print methods.  Use the following glossary to better understand stickers, labels and decals.

BASIC TERMINOLOGY 

The most basic sticker terms are often thought of as interchangeable. The following are examples of how one might differentiate these terms based on their use.

Sticker-Terminology_FC-Sticker

Full Color Sticker

Pressure Sensitive Stock: This is the most technical way to refer to stickers or labels. It’s a general description of any paper or synthetic stocks that adhere to surface when pressed against it.

Stickers: When a pressure sensitive stock is used for decorative or branding purposes it is usually referred to as a sticker. They generally come individually cut.

Labels: When pressure sensitive stock is used to identify a product or contents of a package, indicate a destination on an item being shipped, or differentiate items for organizational purposes they are usually referred to as labels (i.e., mailing labels, size labels, beer labels, etc…). Labels come in individual sheets or on a roll.

Decals: When a pressure sensitive stock is used to decorate or brand an item for a extended periods of time they are usually referred to as decals. Decals usually come with an implication of permanence, so you’ll often find them being used for signage purposes. Decals are most often thought of as being unprinted cut vinyl, or screen printed.

Roll Labels/Stickers: Stickers and labels can be printed in a continuous line and then rolled onto core cylinders. The purpose of this is most often for machine labeling.
