for christmas I designed a custom note pad for each member of my family and people at work. like I designed them cute desgnes and put their name on them and had my local Copy Cop print out 50 sheets with it set up so there was a different persons design in 1/4 of the paper so I could make four note pads per sheet. and I  would print 50 sheets per person and they bound them for me and I made like 40 plus note pads for less than 20 dollars.  after I had them all done I read up on how to pad my self and I think I'll just pad them myself next time. But Black and white copies are a cheap way to make a custom note pad.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I've tried the elmer's glue to do this project, and it works really well. 

The first try, the edges got all wobbly from the moisture in the glue, but then I moved the notepad right to the edge of the table and put the clamp board I was using right to the edge on top.  With all the edges flush, that held the paper and kept it from ruffling. 

It's so cool knowing that you can do that with just normal white glue.  My husband was amazed.  I'll bet you could put acrylic paint in the glue and end up with colored edges.  I might have to try that next. 

Anyway, if you're like me and you read this thread at midnight, and you're suddenly burning to make a notepad, go ahead and use the elmer's!

since this notepads are made to rip out I think good ol' PVA will work good. I am gonna try this on my father's not-binded-square-and-oh-so-blue-note papers and let you know the result..

Yep!  I experimented with good old Elmers glue and it seems to work just as well as the "padding compound."  I bet they are very similar in their chemical makeup.

He he.. I knew it! I asked it to my sister (she once work for a printing agency and now knows all stuff about pro-printed things and papers) and she told me that they use PVA which is the same thing the carpenters use. Yay.. gonna try..

Making your own notepads totally is fun!  For all four years of college, I had work-study in the printing/mailing office, which was AWESOME because I had access to all of that stuff.  We made notebooks out of recycled paper all the time, and we had this massive clamp setup called "The Paddy Wagon" (haha) so that you could make a stack of notebooks like, three feet tall at once.  Those were the days!

I found another site online that sells handy clamps for making notepads, in case any of you are interested...

But in case you want to try making one, they have instructions too!  Cool!
