Lots has been happening at WTF Notebooks! With the holiday season just around the corner, we thought it's the perfect moment to give you a rundown of everything that's been brewing in our not-so-ordinary stationery world since last Christmas. From the launch of a long-awaited new notebook type, to the return of personalised gift notes – we’ve been working hard to make WTF Notebooks your one-stop-shop for funny holiday gifts.

Let's dive into the 7 major updates that have transformed the WTF Notebooks experience over the past 12 months:

1. New website means easier browsing

If you haven't explored our revamped website yet, you've been missing out. Earlier this year, we gave WTF Notebooks a shiny new look, making it easier than ever to browse and customise your favorite titles. Have a browse today.

2. More bulk order bonuses

With our website makeover came some fantastic updates to our Bundle Discounts, all for the benefit of our cherished customers. We've expanded the savings beyond your cart to include substantial discounts on shipping.

Plus: We’ve added new tiers to the Bundle Discounts. Now, when you order 50 or more notebooks, you'll automatically save 20%, and for those gigantic corporate gift orders of 100 or more, we've got a whopping 25% discount waiting for you.

3. Pages for every purpose

In addition to our usual inside page options, we've also introduced a brand-new Academic Planner option, perfect for students and academics alike. Because organisation never goes out of style.

That means you now have the choice of college-ruled, gridded, dotted, blank, an Annual Planner, and an Academic Planner.


4. Size does matter: Large Softcovers are out

You asked, and we listened! Ever since we sold our very first notebook back in 2020, we've had a chorus of requests for larger books. Well, your wishes have finally been granted. Earlier this month, we proudly launched our brand-new Large Softcovers, available in convenient A4 size. Say hello to more space for your brilliant ideas and hilarious doodles!

5. Gift Message Cards have made a comeback

After the last Christmas holidays we sadly had to pull the option to add a custom gift note to your order – blame it on the boys in IT. But just as we all start to think about Christmas gifts again, personalised Gift Message Cards are finally back in action and ready to spread smiles with your gifts. Better yet, the optional add-on is now free for all orders.

6. Noteworthy gift guides

The new website wasn't just about aesthetics; it was also an opportunity to revamp our blog. Introducing the Noteworthy blog – your go-to destination for all things paper peculiarities, scribble shenanigans, and noteworthy nonsense.

Explore our staff's favourite title picks, indulge in comedic rants about all sorts of pet hates, and find useful gift guides to make your shopping a breeze.
