I mentioned last month that the Gingerbread Man hardback journal I ordered from Redbubble seemed to be taking ages to arrive and sadly it had gone astray, but they popped another one in the post and it was waiting for me when I got back from holiday! I was impressed with the packaging as too often exciting things just arrive in a boring old padded envelope but the printed box is pretty cool. The notebook was also wrapped in tissue paper and arrived in perfect condition with no dents or crushed corners.
Apart from the actual measurements (which me and everyone else in the world never reads), there’s no size guide on the website so it’s a little smaller than I expected, somewhere between A6 and A5. That makes it even cuter though, and I’m more like to use it since it’s light enough to carry around.
I designed this journal with the same design repeated front and back, which means you get to add a coloured spine. I love this detail as adding a contrasting spine really gives it an extra pop. The above is the image from Redbubble so you can see from my photos that the colours are quite accurate and the printing is really sharp.
Here’s a close up of the spine. It’s a proper hardback bound notebook with thick sturdy covers that look like they’ll hold up to a lot of use.
You also get to decide what kind of paper goes inside, from a choice of blank, lined and graph. I went with blank as it will most likely end up being a sketchbook. There’s 128 pages so it will last a good while.
Overall, I’m super happy with this journal and can’t wait to use it. I would definitely recommend them and have tons of cute designs available in my Redbubble store. At £12.40 each, they’re reasonably priced for on-demand and shipping is fast and a lot cheaper than I expected. Redbubble only do very short discount offers so you need to sign up for their newsletter or follow them on social media if you want to save some cash.
