JournalBooks: Eco Beauty by Design

7 Oct

Custom JournalThis is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of ProformaGreen, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy. John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

JournalBooks is doing stunning custom work with nearly 100% total recycled materials in their notebook and spiral journal products.

Really some of their stuff is just flat amazing and a great way to take green printing and marketing to a whole new level.

For printing JournalBooks uses plant based inks which they claim are better than soy based inks for reproduction quality and are harmless to the environment.

JournalBooks compares the impact of their plant based inks to that of vegetable oil.

The JournalBook Classic journals have 100% recycled covers. Even the poly covers – recycled milk cartons – in the classic line are completely recycled.

All of their filler has a minimum of 15% recycled content and all custom journals can be upgraded to 100% recycled post consumer filler.  As a final detail their wire binding is 97% recycled steel. Only 3% is virgin steel.

They even offer optional matching eco pens made out of recycled fiber board and plastic.

For those Ecopreneurists working on high value projects or promotions I cannot express enough how impressed I am with these items.

For more samples take a look at the project samples at our JournalBooks page at or visit their website directly at

If you are interested in upmarket eco printing I encourage you to take a look at what JournalBooks is doing. Stunning, just stunning.
