On-Demand News: Hardback Journals + Laptop Sleeves

These cool new products keep on coming! Redbubble just added these really nice hardcover notebooks that you can choose to fill with blank, lined or graph paper for a journal, sketchbook or anything else. The design covers the front and back so it’s great for my repeat patterns.

It’s also super fun for designs like this with something different on each side. I couldn’t resist ordering one for myself as I was emailed a well timed 20% off voucher – I will be sure to show you the notebook when it arrives. They cost £12.40 each and have 128 pages. Check out all my designs.

Over at Society6, you can now get my designs on laptop sleeves. They’re lightweight padded and zipped cases so great for carrying around in your bag or car.

The design is printed on both sides and they look really great quality, especially the print which can sometimes be a bit fuzzy on this sort of material. They’re available for 13″ and 15″ laptops starting at $36.

If you fancy something, don’t forget to check for offers and discounts.
