How Your Journal is Made…

This is a pretty custom product, so the best way to explain the process is with an example from Sue, 

She’s on her third journal so she knows our number #1 goal is for her to get the perfect journal, even if it’s for a friend…

Sue wanted to create a custom journal for her friend

“This is my third journal order from you, and I keep forgetting to use my coupon lol. The girls at the gym really love my Journal and the ones I’ve given to my friends.”

First she needed to design her cover

To design her cover she uses our custom cover designer to pick out colors, backgrounds, text and images. We let her do pretty much everything to your cover and we send a proof before printing if she wants (she did).

I wasn’t sure to how to modify this order to ask for less of certain pages and add more of a certain page, so I’m hoping to be able to do that with an email to you.”

Sue reached out before we even had time to send the first proof

Normally we compile the order and send out a proof but she wanted to make extra sure we could make the journal the way she wanted.

we compiled her cover choices in our software and sent her a preview by email

The proof is optional, but almost everyone wants one. The cover prints pretty true to color.

Hi Evan, The cover looks awesome!

Then she Wanted special Workout Pages

We have a lot of pages available, and we try to make it easy to select only the pages she needs. In this case we didn’t have exactly the right setup so Sue asked for something a little special. 

“My friend is more goal driven and likes to write, so I was wondering if we could replace half of the WOD tracking pages with the Goals pages.”

It took a little back and forth but we finalized it

Once she approved, we started the print and ship. It took a few business days to get her journal out the door but on the really custom jobs that’s expected.

Awesome! Thank you, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sue it is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves custom fitness journal

100% SATISFACTION Guaranteed

We didn’t know what Sue ordered until she purchased it, and even though it was a little out of the ordinary. We want it to be perfect.

Meet Evan

Evan is the main craftsman and production head, and website guy, and well everything, creating journals is his thing. You’ll probably chat with him for order details and revisions. Feel free to mention his addiction to chocolate chip cookies for a special discount.

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.
