...Little help?

Hey everyone, I need your help with something! So, Dennis got laid off a couple weeks ago. Don't worry, we're fine. In fact, we're doing great. Having him home more is a pleasure and he's using this time to do some soul searching, plus he's been helping me with my business stuff more often. Anywho, we are designing a new little notebook to sell in the shop and we need your opinions on a couple things... It'll have this graphic he designed on the front:


Inside it'll have a grid printed on the 20 or so pages with columns for "When", "What", "Where", "How Much", and "Notes", and it will be a stitched binding like the mini notebooks already up in the shop, with this design hand-stamped on the cover. I'm envisioning light-colored recycled kraft paper for the cover, and maybe white ink, or a deep red or blue, for the graphic. What do you think? Our main question is about size. I was thinking of making it 6.5 x 8.5 inches (so we don't have to do any paper cutting and it will therefore be less expensive), but Dennis thinks smaller is better so you can stick it in a smaller bag, or maybe even a pocket, something more like 4.25 x 6.5. What would you guys prefer? Everyone to leave us a comment or e-mail about this will not only be helping us out, but I'll give you a 10% off coupon to the shop! Thanks in advance!

  1. Hiyo! Even though it sucks cutting paper, I think a smaller size would be better. Like when you are keeping track of gas mileage, you have a little notebook just to stick in your glove box. I envision the same kind of thing, just something smaller to put into the bike bag. I really like the design too!

  2. I just asked the hubby what size he would prefer and he said the smaller one! He's had 2 flat tires in the last week! I think he needs to start keeping track LOL!!!

  4. I am going to say smaller is better. I think folks would want to tuck it into their tool pouch.

  5. Thank you all so much! The general vote is for it to be smaller, so that's what we'll do! I've already ordered the supplies and the custom stamps so production will get under way very soon.
