Features Of Personalized Leather Notebooks

Understanding the different features that you can look for in custom leather notebooks can help you find the perfect match within our extensive collection. These include the quality of the leather, size of the notebook, binding type, and paper quality. 

Leather Quality 

Leather notebooks can come in a variety of shapes, styles, and qualities. Choosing the right leather quality for your needs is important. Some of the options include: 

  • Full-Grain Leather: The highest quality, durable, and develops a rich patina over time.
  • Top-Grain Leather: Slightly lower quality than full-grain, more affordable, and still durable.
  • Genuine Leather: Lower quality, more affordable, and still offers a genuine leather feel.
  • Bonded Leather: Made from leftover scraps bonded together, it is generally the cheapest option.

At RushOrderTees, we offer a wide selection of leather-look notebooks, which use materials such as PU and Polypropylene, which can give the look, feel, elegance and durability of leather without the price tag that traditional leather brings. 

Notebook Size 

The size of your leather notebooks will also vary depending on your needs. Some options include: 

  • Pocket Size: Usually 3.5” x 5.5” or similar, this option is easy to carry around but holds fewer pages and is best for quick, short note-taking. 
  • A5 Size: This is a popular size, usually around 5.8” x 8.3”. It is suitable for everyday use and even on the go. 
  • A4 Size: This larger size notebook is good for extensive note-taking. It is usually around 8.3” x 11.7” and is popular with students and office workers. 

Binding Type 

The binding type of your custom leather notebooks can also influence the durability of your notebook and its flexibility for different needs. 

  • Stitched Binding: This is a durable option and allows the notebook to lie flat. 
  • Spiral Binding: This binding type allows pages to be turned easily, but may not look as elegant as stitched binding. 
  • Glue Binding: This option is common in more affordable notebooks, but this done come with less durability. 

Paper Quality


The quality of the paper may be a requirement that you should consider, particularly if your custom leather notebooks are being used for a specific purpose. Some of the features that you should consider include: 

  • Weight: The thickness of the paper can determine how much ink can bleed through. This is measured in GSM, and 80-100 GSM is normally ideal for most uses. 
  • Texture: The texture of the paper can also determine what type of custom pens you use on the paper. Smooth paper is typically recommended for fountain pens while slightly textured paper is more ideal for pencils. 
  • Color: The color of the paper is typically based on personal preference, although it can also have an impact on readability. The most common options include white, cream or off-white. 

There are also an assortment of smaller features that may influence your decision on which notebook you choose for your purpose. Page layout for example can be chosen based on whether your recipient is going to be writing, drawing or sketching, while additional features like refillables or bookmark ribbons can help with efficiency. 

Page Layout

  • Ruled: This is one of the most common options and is useful for general writing. 
  • Grid/Dotted: These are particularly useful for sketches, bullet journaling, and precision. 
  • Plain: Plain notebooks are ideal for drawing and free-form note-taking. 

Additional Features

  • Pen Loop: This is a handy feature to keep a pen attached to the notebook. 
  • Pockets: Some notebooks feature internal pockets for storing loose papers or cards. 
  • Bookmark Ribbon: This helps in quickly locating the current page, ideal for note-taking in important meetings or events. 
  • Refillables: Some custom leather notebooks are designed to hold replaceable paper inserts.
