Back to the Classics: WindowPad

It all comes back to the basics. Serve customers the best-tasting food at a good value in a clean, comfortable restaurant, and they’ll keep coming back.
— Dave Thomas

We got to thinking — maybe it’s time to dust off our favorite core products and give them the spotlight they deserve! Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely love coming up with fresh, new journals for you and your clients (and we won’t be slowing down anytime soon…). But we can’t forget the versatility of our core products! They show off our dynamic range of custom capabilities, and offer something really special for your customer.

Today, we’ll highlight the Original WindowPad, one of our best-selling core product series. They’re the perfect solution for a dramatic reveal of custom full-color artwork behind the cover, and can seriously impress!


The Original WindowPad

A standard WindowPad includes:

  • (1) stock shape die-cut window (includes rectangles, squares, circles, ovals, and some miscellaneous shapes; contact us for available options) on front cover
  • (1) full-color, 1-sided insert, showing through the window
  • 100 sheets of lined, graph, or blank filler
  • Choose from any material in Cover Series 1 for covers
  • Available in wire-bound or perfect-bound


What if a basic shape doesn’t tell the whole story?

Your customer’s message may be a little more complex than a basic shape can offer. For times like this, upgrade to a unique, custom shape die-cut window. Check out the examples above to see what’s possible!

We can customize your window to suit almost any logo or shape, but be sure to send us your ideas first. Some restrictions apply, because die-cutting can be a delicate process!

Production Tip: Rounded shapes and angles work best for custom shapes.

Our team can help you decide what will work best, and our sales team can create a custom quote, based on the complexity of the shape.

As always, feel free to contact us for more information, or leave a comment below!
