Scout Books

Do you love those little pocket notebooks but wish you could customize them, stick your logo on them or otherwise create your own book? If so, Scout Books is what you need. You can customize the front of the kraft paper covers with your 1- or 2-color logo and then select between dot grid, blank, grid or lined paper (sturdy 70# white text, 100% recycled). Minimum order is 50 notebooks.

Scout Book vs. Field Notes

The books are a tiny bit smaller (3.5″wide x 5″ tall) than the ubiquitous Field Notes (3.5″x5.5″) but the paper is excellent. The lines and grids are light and fine so as to not be distracting but enough to keep your lines straight when needed.

In writing tests, the 70# text was fabulous. None of the pens I used had any show through at all. I did not bring out the pen heavy artillery but I suspect a Sharpie marker would get some show through but not bleed through.

I like you’all so much I have a set of three kraft notebooks to giveaway (one lined, one grid and one dot gird) to one lucky winner. (One notebook has a tiny grease stain on the cover. I blame myself for getting the mail and the pizza at the same time — a well-placed sticker will disguise this blemish).

UPDATE!!!: Scout Books has kindly offered a set of their Rainbow Composition Books for the giveaway as well so I’ll draw two winners. The first will get to choose between the 3-pack of blank books or the Rainbow Set. Second winner will get the other.

Leave a note in the comments telling me what you’d get custom printed on your own stash of Scout Books to be entered to win.

FINE PRINT: Giveaway ends at 10pm on Monday, March 11, 2013 (US Central Time). All comment must be submitted at, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winner will be announced on Friday. Winner will be selected by random number generator from entries that played by the rules (see above). Please include your email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone — pinky swear.

  1. If I had an entire stash, I would have them all just say “Notes” – after all, I do go through quite a few little notebooks in a very short period of time.

  2. I would get the quote “I write for the same reason I breathe; if I didn’t, I would die.” on mine.

  3. As a longtime University of Georgia Bulldog fan, I would have the oval G printed on the front.

  4. I would probably want to decorate the covers myself using a mix of collage, paint, and tape … maybe even some sewing. Design would be different depending on what I plan to do with them. I’d love to try these out! Thanks for giveaway.

  5. I’d love to get some motivational quotes, such as: “Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.” printed on the cover. Or simply a cat’s paw print would do.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I would get one or a few of my husband’s sketches of Rome printed on the cover. Inspirational. Thanks!

  7. Oh holy cow!!! The rainbow ones are amazing!

    I’d have either my personal logotype/monogram done on them or maybe an illustration of an octopus or squid. Or a cat. Or some Sakura. Oh the possibilities are overwhelming!

    New follower here, just loving the blog. Thanks!
