We started Beechmore Books in a design studio in London with a simple mission: to make notebooks that are impossible to leave empty. Whether it’s planning out your next big idea, exploring creative material, meticulously recording important details, or confessing the most private of feelings, it all begins with a crisp blank page in a carefully selected notebook. We want to encourage inspiration, ease the note-taking process, and provide the best possible space into which the Beechmore Books community can pour and store their ideas and creativity.
We care about every detail of the production of our premium, vegan-leather-bound, thick-papered Beechmore Books, because a truly refined, ergonomic journal can change the way you write, how you take notes, or even the scope of your imagination. We specially source the vegan leather we use for our covers, carry out extensive colour testing to for the most stylish, elegant look, and use paper of the highest quality, at an impressive thickness of 120gsm. We use a rigorous in-house book binding process to ensure a 180° lay-flat binding, because we know that being able to take notes one-handed, or photograph the entirety of pages, or work right to the margins, is important to our notebook users. We ensure Beechmore Books are the most functional, durable, superbly crafted notebooks, so that you don’t have to think about anything but how best to fill the pages.

I've kept a journal since I was 19, and every Christmas I love getting a fresh notebook for the new year. It's amazing to look back on previous years to relive what happened and see how much has changed! I love an understated journal with high-quality paper and are one of my most important possessions. To me, notebooks represent opportunity. An empty notebook is waiting to be filled with something special.

A notebook for me is an extension of my subconscious. It is a physical representation of what is going on in my mind. This makes my notebooks precious to me an a way that no one else can see. I use a bullet journal because its great for sketches but also i am then not defined by lines within the space of the page. I use 2 pages per idea or project to maximise the space in the book which is why the lay flat binding technique we use on our books is so important to me. I also only ever use pencil in my books. Mistakes happen but they can always be improved.
Head of operations
I'm forever scribbling stuff down in my notebook. If I don't, whatever I'm thinking about tends to drop out of my head entirely and get lost in the ether. I also find great satisfaction in the physical action of ticking a task off a to-do list: I'll even write down tasks I've already completed just so I get to enjoy drawing a nice bold line through it. Digital task lists are all well and good, but for me, they've got nothing on pen and paper.
Performance Marketing & Commercial
From Asana to Front, and on to Looms, Microsoft Office and Slack: I love the impact that tech has had on the workplace. That being said, I'll never fully commit to a fully paper less working environment because I enjoy writing and it's a skill I cherish. I use my notebooks to partition my job roles, to keep notes during meetings, to scribble down thoughts and next steps before re evaluating afterwards what information specifically needs to be digitised.

I use my notebook to get ideas out of my head and organise them onto paper. I'm often thinking about 17 different things at once, so I split my notebook into projects. If one conversation gives me an idea for something I'm not working on at that moment, it gets stored for later. I try and keep my notes as neat as possible, because if they don't look enticing, I'm less likely to want to work on them. That's why I'm very precious about what pen I use in my notebook, luckily, our thick paper is the ideal companion for basically any pen.
