We're Evan and Erica, co-founders of Journal Menu.
We aren't professional athletes, we're just people like you looking for something super simple, a way to record our training that isn't dependent on a power button and that looks special, to us.
After years of generic journals tailored to nothing at all, especially not our own athletic journeys, we decided to make the journals we'd always been looking for.
Our approach is simple, you get to choose. You can choose one of our covers, or design one of your own. You can choose from one of the journals we've designed for your sport, or pick each and every page you want in your journal.
We want your journal to be uniquely yours.
Journal Menu was built to give you the journal of your dreams. We do everything ourselves, crafting the journal from industrial sheets and printing them on-demand to fit your goals and your journey. By selling direct to you we bypass costs like wholesaling, design storefronts and licensing that have no bearing on your athletic journey.
3 core values define our everyday practice
1. An Amazing Product
Your journal should work perfectly for you and make your life easier by helping you record your workouts and find your previous results. Not only that, we feel it should provide relevant nutritional and motivational info to help take your athleticism to the next level.
2. A Better Experience
We believe you should have the options to create the perfect journal for you. Whether that means you chose one of our carefully crafted journals or design your own from scratch, we've tried to make it simple and easy to create the perfect journal.
3. A Personal Touch
We want to connect with you, hear your story and learn how we can improve our game. You are how we learn what we're doing right and what we're doing wrong and improving our service is what we aim for everyday. We want your journal to be perfect for you, and if its not in any way, please let us know!
How It Works
Designing a Cover
We will send you a preview of your cover when we receive your order. We compile your choices in Photoshop and tweak everything to look good but you can request as many changes as you want before we print.
We've provided predesigned covers as jumping off points, from there we can change colors, textures, add logos, clip art and much more so the journals that arrive at your doorstep are a perfect reflection of your branding and philosophy.
Choosing a Tracking Page
The right workout page is critical to recording the metrics most important to you. We have a variety of choices and you should be able to find what you want easily. If not, we're happy to design one for you from scratch.
If you'd like to add extra pages, vinyl pockets for loose papers or a PR divider, they are available at a small extra charge. They are just another tool to extend the usefulness of your journal.
After You Order - Reviewing and Revising
It's our goal to get you the perfect journal.. With that in mind we always send digital proofs for review and approval. If you want to make changes to the journal or cover, we will continue revising until you are happy with what you will receive.
Delivery & Quality Guarantee
Once we've gotten approval to print, we try to move fast! Its our goal to have the journal in your hands in under two weeks, but because every print is unique, that may vary. We review every journal that goes out the door, but sometimes mistakes happen. If one does, we will pay for the return, replace the order and make sure you are satisfied as quickly as possible.
We want you to have an amazing, unique tool and we stand behind each and every one of our journals. If for some reason we can't fix the problem to your satisfaction, we will refund your purchase immediately.
