How To Make Your Own Custom Notepads

Padding Presses and Notepad MakersWould you like to be able to create your own custom notepads, but don’t know where to start? I have created several notepads using a machine called a padding press. The process is affordable, quick and easy. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

To begin with, a padding press is a simple piece of equipment designed to clamp and hold paper in place while a special glue is applied. This glue, currently available in white and red colors, dries in a matter of minutes. Typical drying time takes about 10-15 minutes. Once dry, the clamp can be released and the pad of paper is ready to be used.

You can see a step-by-step guide (with pictures) as to how this is done by checking out our “how to use a padding press guide.”

So why create your own pads?

  1. Allows you to recycle paper.
  2. Allows for custom notepads.
  3. Affordable and can be done for years with the same machine.
  4. Great for taking notes.
  5. Fun to do.
  6. Creating prank job applications. J/K on that one, but you can read more here.

These are just a few quick reasons why you may want to create your own notepad.

So what are the biggest differences between padding presses? The biggest differences are padding capacity, paper sizes allowed and swivel bases.

Some padding presses are capable of padding reams upon reams of paper, upwards of 1,000 plus at a time. These large stacks are then quickly cut down into smaller stacks. Some padding presses can only handle notepad size paper (around 4-6 inches) where others can pad large 11 x 17 sheets.

The swivel base is more of a convenience than anything. This makes it easier to use a padding press on a countertop or surface that doesn’t have easy access. The swivel allows the operator to spin the platform around, apply glue and then spin it back 160 degrees for easy front access.

You can find our entire selection of padding presses and notepad makers here. Still have questions about creating notepads? Speak for free with one of our specialists at 1-800-658-8788. Happy padding!
