Step-by-Step Guide

This guide suggests ways in which you can supply your proposed exercise book content to us. To create a draft for each edition we need the following information:


Step 1 - Decide on a Cover Design

Most bespoke exercise books have covers with these elements. It is very important to decide which of these elements you want to incorporate before you start looking for suitable photos/artwork:

  • School name/logo
  • Areas for subject-specific photographs or artwork
  • Areas for colour-coding by subject
  • Subject
  • Space for student name/form
  • Area for other logos or strapline

We have several templates for you to select from. Alternatively, you can supply your own.

Step 2 - Choose a page ruling

You can use one of our example rulings or we can create alternative rulings for you.

We can create any customised ruling. You can supply a draft sketch on paper, supply a digital copy or simply describe a layout and we'll design it from your instructions.

It is possible to have a mixture of rulings in any book e.g. alternate ruled and plain pages.

Examples of Standard Rulings

10mm ruled with margin

Exercise Book Example Ruling 9

Step 3 - Bespoke Information Pages

Bespoke information can go on the inside front/back covers or inside the books. You can mock up your own pages (e.g. in MS Word) and we will design them for you.

Alternatively, you can use your choice of software to create print-ready page designs. Information on how to add school logos can be found in our guide.
