Introduction: Personal (Note)Book

Hey everyone!

My boyfriend is a writer and a booknerd. I wanted to get him something special since he always writes down his ideas on pieces of paper (And it bothers me!). First I wanted to get him a big leather notebook, but it didn't feel personal enough, so here is an example of what I made.

I made this in Photoshop, and ordered it on Redbubble. It was 16 euros, but Redbubble often has sales, so sometimes you can get it even cheaper! Redbubble will also let you choose between lined, blocked or blank paper. So it can also be a math or sketchbook!

What you need:
- Photoshop experience
- A Redbubble account
- Bit of money
That's it!

Now let's begin :-)

If you have no Photoshop experience and still want a personal design, please contact me:

I will make you the design you want, without extra costs. I don't make much money doing this, but I enjoy it very much!

Step 1: Template

Redbubble is a site where artists can sell their artwork.
You can print art on different kinds of products, for example, here is my shop

As you can see; There are stickers, mugs, shirts, everything!
But today we are focusing on the Hardcover Journals.

First, you need the template: Click here (Explaination) & Here for the image

Save the image.

Step 2: Photoshop!

Open a new file on Photoshop, make sure it's 3326 × 2209 pixels

Now place the template.

Now watch the video here

Make your design just the way you want it

Step 3: Redbubble

Save your image, make it the way you want it, and go to Redbubble.

Click on your name, and click add work.
Upload your design,
Disable all the products except the Hardcover Journal.
Give it a title, and make sure your work is private.

Now you can order it, done! :-)
