    User Guides: 

    Writing: We recommend archival, pigment-based inks such as Copic or Micron. These inks reduce show through and will not yellow or fade over time.

    Cover Care: Printed covers show wear and fingerprints over time, simply wash with wet rag periodically, if not effective Windex has also shown to be effective on printed cases. DuraCover and ProCover should require minimal care, a wet rag should suffice in cleaning off dust, fingerprints, etc.

    Lay-Flat: Sewn book blocks lay more flat with use. To expedite this process open and close and apply pressure to the spine every few pages or so. Smaller books and softcovers intrinsically lay less flat than larger, hardcovers. We, therefore, recommend purchasing large hardcovers when trying to maximize how lay-flat your book will be on the bench.

    Adhesives: We recommend an archival, permanent adhesive for applying all printed matter. The industry standard for this application is Neschen Archival Tape.

    Storage: Avoid contact with any aggressive solutions, store out of direct sunlight in stable, low humidity conditions. It is generally recommended to store laboratory notebooks in a secure, monitored location.

    Guides: Please reference our user guides page for a library of printable guides as well as powerpoints and other teaching aides on lab notebook protocols.

     

     

    For orders of 24 units or more we offer a range of cover, endsheet, and layout customization options. 

     

    Cover Options

    We offer over 40 foil and deboss options to brand your books, with the capability to stamp any book with up to six colors and die variations. We can create simple text debossing from our basic lettering, produce custom dies for branding, and also offer sequential stamping for any series of books (limited to 8 digits). 

    For larger orders, we also offer custom cloth and synthetic leather and ribbon marker options to meet the demands or match the branding of your lab. Please contact us for more details on what our bindery can do for you. 


    Endsheet Options

    Endsheets are the first and last page in hardcovers. These are printed separately from the remainder of the bookblock, and can be easily customized for your needs, be that custom branding, sequential numbering, or variable data (1 color to 4 colors). Endsheets can be customized in any of our hardcovers. Please contact us for more details about endsheet customizations. 

     

    Layout Options

    For complete customization of your notebook, we can create special layouts for the bookblock. Branded pages, listed projects, book numbers, and other variable data to name some options. We can even create special layouts with different grid dimensions, page sizes, or types of paper. Due to the nature of bookbinding, most full custom jobs start around 250 units as a minimum order size and grows with the complexity of the journal. But we are always excited to create something new, that maximizes your labs time and performance! Just contact us for more details.

    Writing: Archival, pigment-based pens such as copic or micron are recommended for use in all notebooks. These inks reduce ink show-through and will not yellow or fade over time.

    Cover Care: Printed covers may show wear (fingerprints, discoloration, etc.) over time. Simply wash cover with lightly damp rag or wash with other gentle cleaning solutions periodically. DuraCover and ProCover generally require minimal care.

    Binding: Sewn binding lays more flat with use. To expedite this process, open and close new notebooks every few pages and apply pressure along its spine. Smaller books and softcovers intrinsically lay less flat than larger, hardcovers.Therefore, large format hardcovers are recommended for true "lay-flat" sewn binding.

    Adhesives: We recommend an archival, permanent adhesive for applying all printed matter. The industry standard for this application is neschen archival tape.

    Storage: Avoid contact with aggressive solutions, store out of direct sunlight in stable, low humidity conditions. Store in secure, monitored location.
