Plain old notebooks are so last year. Why can't you just customize a notebook to look the way you want and have it formatted the way you want to write in it?
Make My Notebook, a green, locally based company, lets you do exactly that. They allow you to make your own quality, handmade notebooks and tailor them to your exact needs and wants.
They are hand silk-screened and assembled spiral-bound notebooks. The photograph covers are inspired by the artist's own Denver, Colorado, surroundings. Each notebook is hand printed using stateside machinery. All notebooks are made to order, which in turn cuts down on waste, and allows for quality control and use of recycled materials. Choose from a variety of funky original photos, different colored bindings and filler paper.
You can find them at paper boutiques all around the country or simply go online and create your own.
So put away that boring old notebook from last year and place your order. It's the "write" thing to do.

Use your new notebook to write about the amazing cooking class at Stir Cooking School that you and a friend could take if you get five of your friends to sign up for The Nugget!
