Going Green Spiral Notebook

Spiral notebooks made from recycled materials are nothing new, so you may be wondering why I’m featuring this one on the blog. There’s one small (but important) detail that makes this one unique… Graph Paper!

Each of the 50 pages of recycled paper in this notebook is two-sided. Side A is lined, but Side B is graph paper. This makes it a GREAT notebook for certain types of businesses, such as architects, designers, builders and engineers. Since so many of these types of firms are embracing sustainability, this is a very useful green item that lends itself extremely well to their businesses.

The 6×9 size is large enough to really be useful but still compact enough to travel well. The outer hardboard cover is kraft brown & is bound with black twin-loop wire. All components are made of recycled materials. Each page bears a small ‘recycle’ symbol and Goingreen(TM) at the bottom. Minimum order is 100 books with a price point between $4-$6 depending on quantity.

These would be a fantastic item for training classes at large companies, or for industry conferences. They’re also a perfect item for colleges of engineering, architecture or design – either for sale at the campus bookstore or to be used as ‘giveaway swag’ at recruitment events. They’d also be a useful, thoughtful and inexpensive client gift for real estate agents, home inspectors or appraisers.

Recycled Swag – GreenNotes Journals on Sale!

I’ll start by saying I’ve always been a big fan of Custom Journals as a swag idea. They have all the elements of great swag – they’re affordably priced, extremely useful, tend to be kept for months or even years & can be completely customized to reflect your look and brand. Add those features to the fact that they are used by people of all ages and walks of life and they’re one of the best investments a company can make in promotional swag.

So what could possibly be BETTER? These GreenNotes RECYCLED Journals. The covers are made of 100% recycled material, printed with vegetable based inks and bound with recycled steel wire. Inside are 100 pages of lined eucalyptus paper (15% recycled content) and you can upgrade to 100% recycled filler paper for a small extra charge.

These come with a FREE ECO PEN and elastic privacy closure that doubles as a bookmark & come in both 5×7 and 7×10 sizes.

Customization Options include:
-Unlined or gridlined filler paper
-Logo printed on each page of filler paper
-Customized insert pages

One of the companies we work with has us insert a company directory into the back of their Journals, which lists the contact information for their offices around the world. They’re a great item for large companies to use internally for employees, as well as for promotional swag.

They’re great not only for businesses, but also for schools, nonprofits, government agencies or even events like class or family reunions. With a low minimum order of 100 books, this is one item that’s a great fit for budgets both large and small.

These are ON SPECIAL through May 1st:

$6.21/each for 5×7 size
$7.65/each for 7×10 size
