I think logbooks are a fantastic piece of advertising material for a dive centre. A logbook will be carried by every new diver for the next several years, promoting your centre to every diver they meet. Let me help you get it right.
I offer customised, bespoke logbooks for your dive resort! I can provide a number of options based on your particular needs and budget.

I only use saddle stitching (staples), not glue (adhesive binding) for my logbooks. Glue inevitably breaks apart, and divers start losing pages. We know how badly travellers treat their books – durability is important!
With saddle stitching we are limited to about 60 pages maximum. If you would like to use adhesive binding anyway, I can accommodate many more pages; usually up to 200 or so. This can be suitable for a tech or professional-orientated logbook.
Pricing structure comprises of customisation, quantity and delivery fees.
- Graphic design
- Gloss or Matte lamination , which improves book durability
- Full colour pages throughout in shop colors
- Alternate designs:
- Tec-diving log pages!
- Simplified 2-up design for frequent divers (like professionals)
- Add watermarks, or website address to every page
- I can also customise the shop stamp area to exactly match your own shop stamp!

If you do not already have artwork, art can be commissioned.
Alternate sizes (A5, B5, B6)
Based on pocket size, and my own experience, A6 is a “sweet-spot”, where it is small enough to fit anywhere, but still large enough to fit everything you need from a dive.
Depending on my local supplier, there will be discounts at certain quantity levels.
- 500 logbooks and above could qualify.
There is usually a 200 unit minimum order, but we can discuss smaller orders.
- Depending on my supplier and your location, delivery fees may apply.
On a final note, good pens are a joy to use. I highly recommend Pilot G2 gel ink roller ball pens. They write fantastically, are inexpensive (for their quality), and last well – only around $1USD each from Amazon!
