In what ways can I personalize a journal?

Asked by Wine (626 points ) November 15th, 2012

Other than experiencing issues with papers wearing out and falling out over time and whatnot, I want to really invest in this journal. What are the different options that I have of customizing this journal? Please include details regarding the pros and cons of each of these options.

Are you talking about decorating a physical object, like by making a cover for it? If so, are you speaking of a paper-covered spiral notebook, a hardcover book with bound pages, a looseleaf binder, or what?

Does “invest” mean time, money, or something else?

Are you asking about what to put in it—i.e., how to personalize the words of your journal entries?

I’m not sure what you are asking but a leather bound journal would be better for the page falling out syndrom. The cost is the only con I imagine. You could order one with your name on it embossed.

If you are thinking of adding objects and photo’s maybe a flip file is better with plastic pages or sheets. You can also have an online journal and decorate with graphics.

By investing I mean time, money, and thought.
Also I’m trying to decide on what type of leather, how the pages will be bound, the type of sheets used, etc. Sorry for the vagueness.
