Olde worlde book binding still comes into play when preparing your customized work books. This is necessary to continue giving your prized tools of thought creation and productivity its aesthetic appeal. And yes, you are quite right; the design stage of your custom notebooks and journals is being carried out online and through the designer’s desktop terminal or laptop. It is over to you to provide him with your own design intentions or sketch ideas by sending him clips through your Corel Draw program, Photoshop or Adobe illustrator, whichever program you are comfortable with using.
But do not send your desktop designer GIF or JPEG images. This is because the produced images are never sharp and will appear jagged when transplanted to the hard cover of your notebook or journal. Do not let the olde worlde bookbinder see you doing this. Anyway, there is no end to the aesthetic and esthetic design possibilities for you today. Apart from functional notebooks and personal journals, you can also have wired journals, poly covered journals and soft cover journals prepared and produced.
And you can even have prayer books or hymn books prepared from desktop to olde worlde printing shop made up for your congregation. Books can be case bound and prepared in hard cover, if that is your preference. And while many of you will have personal thoughts on how you can utilize your personal journals in the future, consider this to be your business too. Have note books and journals prepared for your small to medium sized business cost effectively through the desktop to the printing press.
All the resources that would have been poured into this exercise are creatively inspired anyhow and cumbersome material resources are discarded.
