Bespoke Custom Made Notebooks, Journals & Diaries

selecting materials for bespoke notebooks and journals

Complete individuality is at the heart of everything we do.

Here at The Stamford Notebook Company we are often asked to produce custom made notebooks for companies, retailers, visitor attractions and individuals.

Custom Made Notebooks, Journals and Leather Goods

The are many applications for custom made books such as visitor books, record ledgers, day books, log books, diaries or registration books - whatever our customers require!

We frequently make bespoke leather wallets, folders and ring binders amongst other items.


We try to use the best! Our British made, fountain-pen friendly paper is excellent for most projects but we can advise on other choices which might be better suited to an application. An album for instance needs a much heavier weight. A sketchbook would require sketch paper! All of our paper where possible is milled in the beautiful Cumbrian town of Kendal by James Cropper Plc.


We have a large selection of covering materials stocked from papers and cloths to leathers. We can easily supply samples to help with decision making.


We are more than happy to help with small quantities, such as one-offs. Many projects such as albums or visitor books only require a single book.

Your own fabrics

As we make by hand we often make books in our customers' fabric. We normally like to try a sample to ensure that it works happily. It is helpful if fabric doesn't have too much stretch!

Samples and Mockups

When we discuss bespoke notebooks, journals and leather work we ensure that customers are fully aware of options such as bespoke pages, materials for covering, embossing and even the colour of bookmark ribbons. We supply proofs, mockup visuals and samples if required. These ensure that projects are completed successfully - on time!

We would be delighted to discuss your own requirements. We can advise on all aspects of producing bespoke books - paper, page layouts, covering materials, branding and personalisation.

Our in-house production means that we can offer this service for very short runs even one-offs!

Please contact us with your requirements.
