Notepads | Delivery | Placing Order | Design


What size are the notepads?
We currently produce A5 (148 x 210mm), A4 (210 x 297mm) and A6 (105 x 148mm) sized notepads and A4 and A5 sized notebooks. No other sizes can be requested at this stage.

How many pages are in each notepad?
This will depend on the product chosen. Please refer to the product specifications on the relevant product page for more details.

The number of sheets cannot be altered. For notepads, all sheets are glued at the top and tear off easily.

Can I choose a paper stock?
No, we do not offer a choice of paper stock. All notepads are printed on a quality white paper stock; with standard pads on 90gsm and premium notepads on 120gsm.

Do the colours print the same on the notepad as on the screen?
Colour reproduction may not be EXACTLY as seen on your screen. This is a manufacturing process and therefore variations are expected. We take no responsibility for this variance.

Can I change the colour of the notepad?
No changes can be made to the notepad. The design, including colours used on each individual notepad, will remain the same.

Can I change the font on the notepad?
You have a choice of 6 fonts to use for your chosen personalisation. There is a link to an example of each font on the product page.

Can I request a special design for my own notepad?
If you would like to order 20+ notepads with a UNIQUE design of YOUR CHOICE (with individual names), please email us the details and we will forward a quote to you for the design of a new notepad, as well as printing of the notepads.

If you would like to order a unique notepad design for 1 or 2 notepads - sorry we do not offer that service. However, we would love to hear your ideas, so we can create more of what you would like to see in the future. Please email your suggestions through to or find us on Facebook.

What if I want to order a large quantity of one particular notepad?
If you want 20+ notepads of the SAME design from our current Padtastic range (with individual names), please email us the details and we will forward a quote to you with the price for printing of the notepads.

Does the notepad have a hard cover?
No, it is not a book. The first sheet is the start of your notepad. It does have a hard backing board on the back with all sheets glued at the head (top).

Can I upload my own image or photo?
No this option is not available at the present time. However, it may be developed in the future.

What if the wrong notepad is printed?
If you have accidentally selected the wrong notepad at the time of order; unfortunately we cannot offer a return or refund for consumer error. However, if Padtastic have made an error we will gladly reprint the original order.

What if the name was spelled wrong?
We use an automated system and don’t have someone manually typing the names. So it will appear EXACTLY as you type it on the product page. There are no returns or refunds for consumer error. We encourage you to double check your order before submitting.
