HOW TO CUSTOMIZE A SPIRAL NOTEBOOK WITH MINTED
Customizing your Minted notebook is easy! Here are the steps to choosing and personalizing your printed notebook to make it uniquely yours:
Step 1: Use our filters to help narrow down cover designs based on styles and themes you like. Or, choose to only display designs that feature photos on the cover, in case you were looking for a very personalized look. Photo notebooks make for especially thoughtful gifts for parents and grandparents.
Step 2: Next, select an interior format based on what you’d like to use your notebook for. As a reminder, the formats we offer are journal, address book, monthly planner, and weekly planner. If you select the journal format you can choose between blank, lined, and graph paper pages. Blank pages are perfect for drawing and doodling. Lined pages make for a wonderful writing journal or diary, and graph paper is helpful for solving mathematical formulas.
Step 3: Each design in our assortment has numerous colorways available. Toggle between these color options while you are customizing our journals and select a color that you like best.
Step 4: Now it’s time to customize your spiral notebook with text and photos so that you know it’s yours.
