I need to do a run of 500 custom printed 4x6 (or similar) notepads for a client. Pretty simple 2 color logo. Anyone have an online vendor they like? I usually use psprint.com but looking for other options that anyone may have experience with. Thx!

4over4.com

They're local to me (NYC) but the prices are fair and turn around is quick.

I have used VistaPrint...

[www.vistaprint.com]

These pads might be close to what you want, nose around from there.

I'm looking for something similar but I want it to be plain white paper. No design, no lines, nothing, just a plain white 4x6 note pad. My local office stores don't carry anything like that.

4over4 could be the ticket. Looks like 500 4/0 50 sheet pads for $660 which seems pretty reasonable.

Vista only has pricing to 200 pads which are $1000...seems steep.

Thanks for the tips!

Speedy,

I bet Continental Press could help you out with blank notepads.

Blank pads are easy to make - chip board, Elmer's glue, some weights and somebody that can cut the pads down to size before you glue up.

Oh, and water the glue down a bit. Put a piece of chip board on top and bottom, trim to size, jog it up, set it down with the weight near edge that's being glued. Paint the end with watered glue and brush you don't care about. Wait an hour or so, pull apart.

Yup, DIY. You can buy the glue online -- think its called "padding glue" or something like that.

If you are gonna to a lot, a couple of pieces of wood and some simple clamps from Home Depot/lowes will get them really nice.

Theu even make padding presses -- but no idea on cost.

Im sure theres tons of DIY, google away.

Any reputable printer should be able to make these, in their sleep, any day of the week.

Sure, I made them in 7th grade in print shop. Now I just want to walk into my office store and buy them. Cheaper to buy the pink pads for phone messages but I don't need pink and I don't need the printed form that is on one side.

Thanks, kurtzie, but I have done business with a printer and the cost is much higher than the aforementioned pink pads.

Someday I will find them and buy a bunch.

Thanks to all who responded.
