About this project
The Neat team is a group of Graphic Design students from London Metropolitan University.
We are a very diverse group, with different styles and dreams. But we have at least two things in common.
First, we love stationery.
Second, we never actually found the perfect Notebook. So we decided to create it. And we called it the NeatBook.
What is a NeatBook?
It's a A5 notebook 100% assembled by us, for you. You can choose from our enormous selection of page designs, the order you want them to be bounded in, and the cover colour.
- If you want a gym log aligned with a meal plan calendar ... you got it!
- Want a zillion drawing plain pages + a few colouring pages? ... you got it!
- Do you want to have all coloured pages? ... You got it, the sky is the limit here.
The NeatBook is so amazing because each one is unique.
All the pages are printed using a Risograph printer which is sustainable, uses soy-based inks and it's very cost effective. This is what allows us to offer this cool product at a fair price.
Then, we staple all the pages together. And its basically done.
We bind it using the stapling method, a simple but effective solution.
So far all our NeatBooks are being enjoyed in one piece, given a lot of joy to all the users.
But we know, if you're so into stationery as we are, you gonna want a hard cover, beautifully bounded, "grownup" notebook. And this is what it could look like!
That is a key goal of our Kickstarter campaign. We want to fund our new Neat adventure, and your purchases and feedback are a valuable source of information to guide us in this new journey.
We hope you enjoy your NeatBook!
Risks and challenges
This Neat project started as university assignment where we had to plan a day in a market, selling our created product. There was a competition amongst our colleagues, and we won the opportunity to be at the Christmas Market at the Old Truman Brewery.
We prepared the stall decoration and all the materials needed to assemble the NeatBooks in the moment of the purchase. Since it's so personal, we had to make it this way.
Therefore, we have the knowledge and experience to hand make the books, and deliver them to you, as soon as the mail service allow us.
We will start working on your NeatBook a.s.a.p, but it is a manual work, so you might have to wait a bit longer if we have too many orders at the same time.
But we will let you know when we received the order, when we start working on your order, and then the estimate arrival date.
