How to Make Custom Notebooks

Six Easy Steps to Creating Your Own Custom Notebooks with Scout Books

Creating Custom Notebooks with Scout Books is easy! Your ideas are transformed into beautiful notebooks and books with the Care and Craft you’ve come to expect from Scout Books. Let’s get started!



First things first – it begins with your idea. Whether it’s a short story you’d like to self-publish, a training manual for your next conference, or your own line of custom notebooks, you can make it happen with a Scout Book!



We make it easy to build the perfect Scout Book for your project. On our website, you’ll be able to customize your design by choosing your size, quantity, ink color, page style, staple color and turnaround time. Check out our blog for examples, or request a sample kit to see it in person.



Next, you can download our design templates, which you can use to create your artwork. The templates contain instructions, guides and color swatches for designing your Scout Books.



Place your order right here on our website in quantities as low as 50 and as large as 5000. For more complicated or larger orders, we can work with you directly to create a custom invoice. After you place your order, you can upload your design using our template and we’ll get started on production.



Before we ink up the presses, we’ll send you a preview of your order so that you can confirm the size, ink colors, artwork and other important details like shipping address. We’ll wait for your approval before sending your order into production! Once approved, our standard turnaround time is ten business days. We offer rush options available if you need it sooner.



We know it’s hard to wait when you know your order is on its way. You’ll receive tracking information so you can follow along as your order gets closer. When your order arrives, don’t forget to share. We love to see how your Scout Books look in the world.
