Getting to Know...Craig Janik

Posted by Bold Apps on

Craig is the Star in ‘DarkStar Collection’. We were selling Craig’s first notebook editions back in late 2016, as PocketNotebooks, and have continued ever since. We asked Craig our usual questions…Why did you start designing notebooks?  I hated that I could only write on one side of the page due to paper quality and bleed through – that was the first thing I went after, paper quality.What’s behind your design?I’m unfussy.

(We will ship anywhere, subject to being able to get a price for it, so if your country isn't listed, just drop us a note.)
