What is the Artist Collection?
We love to support local artists and illustrators and Notely is a great opportunity to collaborate. Each collection we aim to introduce new artists to the Notely family, meanwhile also adding to the series of existing pieces in the collection from previous artists we’ve worked with.

Notely is designed and printed in Brisbane, Australia.
What does the Archival symbol mean on the inside back cover of my Notely?
The archival symbol means that the paper has been tested to international standards for permanence. Simply it means that archival quality paper is permanent, durable acid-free paper that can be expected to last more than 100 years.
What is Process Chlorine Free (PCF)?
PCF means the recycled fibres have not been re-bleached with any chlorine based bleach. Although the paper has a fantastic eco credentials.
What weight is the paper stock?
The outside cover of each notebook is 300gsm and the inside pages are 100gsm. With ink pen there isn’t much show through, so it’s the perfect surface for sketching and doodling!
Will my Notely be easily scuffed?
Paper is often strongest when created from virgin tree fibres and our Notelys are made from recycled office waste, so the paper is on the softer side. However, we expect that your Notely will be well loved and used, so it is expected that they will wear with on-the-go use in your bag or pocket.
How has the environment been considered in the production process?
All Notelys are printed ethically in Australia. Where possible we also print our product tags on the same sheets as our covers to ensure minimum waste of the sheets during printing.
The printer has a 3 tick Sustainable Green Print accreditation which is the Australian printing industry’s own recognisable certification program designed to allow printing companies meet their environmental responsibilities and go above and beyond compliance.
