Differences Between Ready-To-Go Designs & Bespoke Diaries

When we provide you with a quote, we often present two pricing options: one for a personalised diary and another for a customised version. This page will help illustrate the differences, pros, and cons of each option.

(Ready-To-Go Designs)

You can have your own school cover and policy pages, but the date section (where students write their homework) is pre-printed and cannot be changed or altered. This option is popular due to its convenience and affordability, as schools share the printing costs.

(Bespoke Diaries)

Offers a handcrafted date section tailored to your school's branding and requirements. While this version costs more and demands more time to review it provides greater flexibility and control over the design.

Both versions come with your personalised cover and school policy pages placed at the front and/or rear of the diary.

You can also add accessories.
