Fill in the Blank
Journals are a welcome respite from typing on keyboards. 5/21/2020 | PromoJournal Staff, Product Feature

A pristine blank page often beckons the mind to unravel threads of thoughts or images that result in prose or doodles.  There’s something so optimistic about a new journal or padfolio and it can serve as the silent keeper of one’s secrets as well as the host of ideas and musings that can turn into something unique, special and influential.

Journals are also a welcome respite to typing on keyboards, providing a good break from constant screen viewing. According to JournalBooks’ website, “Planning, organizing and practicing mindfulness can all be accomplished with a JB journal. Whether it’s through practicing gratitude, mindfulness or tracking feelings, journaling has been proven to put people in a better headspace. Writing helps acknowledge and understand feelings, while also helping create healthy habits.” 

Journalbooks offers the Bohemian Journal in teal (#BJ-880FC), featuring smooth faux leather hard covers with a sewn book binding. It includes a blind deboss imprint, 80 sheets of ruled, quality wood free paper, pocket on inside back cover, matching satin ribbon bookmark, and elastic privacy closure. 

A key trend gaining more momentum is eco-friendly journals and padfolios.

Castelli, a high-end journal brand from The Magnet Group, has lush offerings, and several are perfect for businesses that want to promote their alignment with sustainability and green practices. An example is the ApPeel® Pico Saddlestitched journal, available in four hues of red delicious, granny smith, bella blue, neutral and black beauty (#M35XV). The cover and paper are made from apple pulp and other vegetable fibers that are ground and emulsified into an organic material. It measures 3 11/16" x 5 5/8" and contains 64 pages with green lines and a back pocket flap. 

JournalBooks’ Eco ColorPop Journal with Tip-In (#ECP-58FC) features smooth, recycled paper, hard-bound covers, and includes a blind deboss imprint up to 16" sq. and one full-color one-sided insert, expandable accordion pocket, 80 sheets off-white, ruled paper with colored edges available in red, blue, orange, turquoise and white;  matching elastic band closure, and pen loop. 

According to JournalBooks’ website, the company has selected a group of eco-friendly journals to be part of PCNA’s EcoSmart® initiative. PCNA has partnered with 1% For The Planet, donating one percent of EcoSmart® sales to environmental non-profits. Purchasing these items is a double contribution to a better world.

BIC Graphic offers durable and attractive padfolios suitable for corporate clients. Its

Script Zippered Jr. Padfolio (#15135) is made of vinyl and available in black. It features front horizontal stitching design and two interior pockets to secure notes and cards, includes 5"w x 8"h writing pad, a vinyl pen loop and zip closure.

BIC Graphic’s Vertical Stitch Padfolio (#15914) features an interior organizer and an overall smooth finish, available in burgundy, gray and navy; leatherette cover with stitch design along the edge, interior organizer with slip pocket and elastic business card pockets and an 8-1/2"w x 11"h writing pad.

As businesses adapt to a work-from-home culture, providing journals and padfolios is a great idea to encourage continuity of progress and team culture.
