 Make Notepads with the Kids

Published 2010-12-20 17:54:00 - Notebooks

Stay-at-home moms may want to try a new activity that they can do with the kids. Always remember that nothing beats having a hands-on mom who make the most out of the time they spend with their children. During weekends or late afternoons, moms may want to bond with their children through a hobby that they can do at home. Once their kids get older, they will have fond memories to treasure and reminisce. Thus, it always pays to share precious experiences with your children while they are young. So, if you looking for a pastime, here's a suggestion for moms out there: why not make arts and crafts with your kids! These activities would not only be a creative leisure, but these can also be a bonding activity that would make moms and children develop a tight knit as well as create childhood memories. So, if you are looking for a new pastime that involves your kids, look for do-it-yourself arts and crafts. If your children like to draw and sketch, write or doodle, they may want to make their own notepads! Children are always imaginative and resourceful, making use of materials available to them, such as paper, pencil and crayons. You will find them making sketches of their favourite things or even to express themselves on their notebooks and even your walls!


Creating notepads are a productive and fun pursuit. You can produce great-looking notepads that can be used by your kids at school or at home. You may also want to distribute notepads to your friends or family members as casual gifts. They can use these notepads to write down to-do lists, budget, expenses, and notes to self. If you are already proficient in making notepads, you can even turn this into a hobby. Creating notepads does not necessitate a lot of funds. You can even just use materials available at home. You may even want to recycled papers, and use the blank pages for the notepads. You do not have to spend on new materials, such as paper stock. However, if you want to do so, you can save costs, too. You may want to avail of discounts and promos for paper stock, especially the quality ones which can be quite expensive. Do the same when you want to make use of great-looking cardboards for both front and back covers. Aside from the paper stock and cardboard, you will need a clamp (or two big books) to hold the pages together and finally, adhesive! So, if you already have these materials, gather your kids and start working on the notepads.


Here are the guidelines in making notepads:


- Decide on the measurement for the notepads. You may want your kids to have notepads as big as their school notepads or as small as post-its.

- Once your kid has decided, cut the paper as well the cardboard accordingly. Gather the cut paper stock and sandwich it in between the front and back covers.

- Using a clamp or two big books, hold the paper stick with the covers together. Make sure that the pages are equal in size.

- Apply adhesive on one side. Let it dry before applying the second coating.

- Decorate your notepad. Your kids may want to put stickers, pictures, images or drawings or the front and back covers.

 Get Quality Fridge Magnets by Remembering These Points

Published 2010-12-14 17:45:00 - Notebooks

As with anything, fridge magnets have varying degrees of quality. If you are looking for quality magnets for business purposes or a special occasion, be sure to remember the below points before placing your order.
The quality of the magnet has a direct relationship with the thickness of a magnet. The thicker the magnet is, the strong it will be. When speaking in terms of quality fridge magnets, the best thickness is 30 mil. This is the perfect thickness for two reasons; it is easy to reposition and it can hold 5 pieces of paper. Anything less than that will typically not stick well and be useless as far as function is concerned.

Be sure to get lamination on your magnets. With a good reputable, quality fridge magnet company, this will come standard. The best option for fridge magnets is to go with a UV Nylon gloss laminate. This provides protection in a few forms; handling, liquids and chemicals. Never choose companies who use clear ink overlays or no laminate at all. This leads to the breakdown of the magnet and even smudging of the printed design. Either way, the results are not favorable.

Ask for a sample if still unsure. A reputable company will send you a sample of their fridge magnet to review. This is the fool proof way to ensure you are getting the quality you are looking for. Always verify that the magnet you are receiving is the same magnet quality that you will be ordering.

If you consider these points when selecting a custom fridge magnet, you will be on your way to receiving on of the best options for your advertising or special event needs!

 Funky Fridge Magnets - How to Make Them at Home

Published 2010-12-12 18:06:00 - Notebooks

Funky fridge magnets make great gifts, especially as stocking stuffers. However, they are hard to find. Unique, hand-painted magnets are especially hard to find, in stores and online. This article will explain how to make your own unique magnets!

First you will need a base to paint on. Little wood pieces (often called "woodsies") are ideal, as they are inexpensive, and easy to find. Paint a layer of gesso on the wood and allow it to dry thoroughly. Then, use acrylic paints to make the design. This can be abstract, fun, beautiful, you name it! Have fun with this part. I like to select a few colors to make up my palette, and work with these on a large batch of wood pieces. Using quite a bit of white paint blended in with the colors will help the other design elements to be visible in the next few steps.

After allowing the paint to dry, find some cute or interesting magazine photos to clip out and glue onto your paintings. Or not! It is totally up to you. Use your creativity! At this point, you could even glue on little things like beads or sequins. I also like to embellish the magnet with words using a permanent (non-water soluble) black marker. The words could be inspiring, Allow the marker to dry very thoroughly, or the varnish will destroy it in the next step.

Finally, paint on a layer of varnish (I use a water-based varnish, so it's easy to clean), and allow to dry thoroughly. Do not over-brush the varnish or too many bubbles will form, and you risk smudging the black ink. I am speaking from experience here!

Once the varnish has dried, it's time to add the magnet to the back. I buy them at home renovation type stores. They come in all shapes and sizes, so use the one best suited to your wood piece. You can use hot glue, or rubber cement to glue on the magnet.

Once the glue has dried, you have a wonderfully unique, funky fridge magnet!

 How to Maintain Your Notebook

Published 2010-12-8 17:41:00 - Notebooks

In our modern life, the notebook has won great popularity just as other newly developed electronics. As it's portable, it's very convenient to take a notebook along with you on a business or tourism trip. Then wherever you are, you can do your own business freely.

Meanwhile any users of notebooks both household and office will not expect the office or personal files loss due to any trouble appeared to your notebook. How to decrease the fault rate to the lowest? And how to make your notebook persist in working well with you? In fact, frequently necessary maintenance of the notebook helps you a lot.

(Picture information: 10.1 inch Laptop from Chinazrh)

The outer cover: no scratching on the outer cover

Usually the outer cover of a notebook especially which is made of the aluminum is very glossy, thus a piece of cotton cloth is effective to keep your cover spotlessly clean. Before you move your notebook here or there, you must remember to pack your notebook in a separate bag first. And don't put your notebook on the rough desk. A piece of wet wipe offers you a shining outer cover.

LCD: wipe with pure water

Notebook is of folded design, just looks like a notebook. One inner side is the screen, the other side is keyboard, mouse and extras and interface is on the profile. And the LCD is the part which can be damaged most easily. Especially the LCD of some portable notebook will be damaged under squeeze.

It's suggested that don't put anything on the notebook. It's better to clean the LCD screen with the soft cloth and pure water. Besides, it's beneficial to longer the life of LCD to utilize the all black screensaver.

Keyboard: water resistant

The keyboard is used most frequently among the input equipment. In order to avoid the result of "water droplets wear stone", we can be careful in our operation. Don't lose temper to your keyboard. You should control your strength when you type and avoid overpower typing even when system halted occur.

When you clean your keyboard, first clear up the dust with a vacuum sealer with the smallest and softest nozzle. Then clean the keycap with the slight wet soft cloth and dry it immediately. Try not to smoke, eat or drinking too close to your notebook to keep a clean keyboard. But it's luckily that now there are water-proof keyboard.

There are many bumper sticker designers that turn to printing companies to process their original designs.

Print stickers that are truly effective, interesting and eye-catching. Print stickers of all kinds too, whether they are used for political campaigns, celebrations, campaigning for different causes, branding and labels, and the like.

Sticker Printing and Ideas
Make stickers that are uniquely yours and get the word out there. Sourcing out inspiration for your stickers can be easier than you think. Just make sure you are not infringing on some serious intellectual property rights when you borrow trademark images or lines.

Here are some ideas you can use for your sticker design and printing:

* You can source out ideas for your stickers through online design template or any old design templates. It doesn't matter whether the designs are for business cards or postcards. You can observe the style and the composition and you can use to make your own.

* What's better is that you can readily look for designs that fit your purpose. Many online design tools are organized by categories that accommodate all sorts of industries. There are even those organized by style so you can obtain sample for a particular look that you want.

 ickered Up For Le Mans

Published 2010-12-5 18:06:00 - Notebooks

The first thing I always say to people when stickering up for Le Mans is that it's the overall effect you are after. Don't worry if the application isn't 100% perfect. For most people the stickers are only going to be on their car for a few weeks, and they aren't going to be closely inspected by 99% of the people who see them, so it doesn't really matter it there are one or two small air bubbles or if the "Ear protection required" sticker is slightly skew whiff. Stickering up is meant to be fun, so enjoy it!
There are however a few tips that can be used to make the stickering up experience a lot more stress free!! Here's our top 10...
1. Planning. Don't leave it too late to get your stickers ordered. Bear in mind that with so many cars getting stickered up it is a busy time of year for any company who specialise in Le Mans stickers and graphics,. If you have a special custom theme in mind then get it designed and ordered now! The cars with the best graphics usually plan ahead and it's not unusual for us to be supplying graphics in December for the next year's race.
2. Make sure your paintwork is in sound condition. If you still have your showroom paintjob and it's less than 10 years old then you shouldn't have any problems at all. If however you've just been resprayed then think twice about applying stickers. A bit of common sense is all that's needed! Also, don't apply stickers on top of Armourfend or any other paint protection coatings as the removal of the sticker will more than likely remove the protection coating at the same time.
3. Make sure your car is very clean before you attempt to apply your stickers. Some people like to wax beforehand so there is a layer of wax between the adhesive of the sticker and the paint for extra protection and to make removal afterwards a little easier. This is fine if the stickers are only going to be on the car for a few weeks. If however they're going to be on for longer then we would recommend that the surface is clean and wax free so that the sticker adhesive doesn't react with the wax (unlikely but possible). If in doubt, clean your car in the usual way and remove any contaminants by wiping over with Isopropyl alcohol.
4. Don't apply your stickers if it's really hot! A hot sunny day can get you into all sorts of trouble! Your stickers will be printed to a self adhesive vinyl with is about 80microns thick (that's less than 1/10th of a mm). As soon as it is subjected to a heat source (your bodywork gets very hot when it's out in the sun) the sticker will appear to melt. It will go very flimsy and it will be almost impossible to apply. If you have no choice but to apply on a hot sunny day then run a hose with cold water over the panel to cool it down first and make sure you use the "wet application" method described below.
5. Have someone on standby to help. An extra pair of hands will make life so much easier, especially if you are applying viper stripes.
6. Have the right tools on hand. Ideally you will need a household spray bottle filled with water and a couple of drops of washing up liquid (or baby oil for the more adventurous!!), a squeegee (either a plastic one with a soft edge or a felt one), a small sharp blade for trimming any loose ends and some isopropyl alcohol for cleaning bodywork, removing tar spots and removing any adhesive when you remove the stickers. It's also a good idea to have some masking tape and/or a chinagraph pencil to hand. With the masking tape you can temporarily hold the stickers in place while you stand back to check positioning and alignment. You can then mark where the edges of the sticker will be using the chinagraph pencil. Remove the sticker from the backing paper and apply, aligning with the marks you made. Perfect!
7.Use the wet application method. For the inexperienced the wet application method makes the art of applying stickers a lot easier and the only real downside is that you have to wait a little while before driving around at speed. All you need to do is to spray a fine mist of water onto the panel where you are applying the sticker and then spray the sticky side of the sticker (yes, the sticky side). Don't be afraid, you can be quite liberal with the spray. Place the sticker onto the panel and you will be able to slide it around until it is in the perfect position. Working from the centre of the sticker carefully squeegee out the excess water. If you have any bubbles remaining then you can prick them with a pin and squeeze the air out.
8. TAKE YOUR TIME! Don't rush the application of your stickers. Stickering up for Le Mans is for many one of the key elements of the Le Mans experience. If a group of you are going then have a stickering up party! Light the BBQ, have a few beers and then set to work.
9. Stand back and admire your handiwork. Enjoy what you have achieved. Don't worry if you can see small bubbles when you look really closely, no one else will notice (except if it's really bad!!!).
10. Removal... follow the instructions that should be supplied with your stickers. The easiest way to remove your stickers is to apply some heat to soften the adhesive slightly. You may want to test a small sticker first to get an idea of how much heat is required. Too little heat and the sticker might tear. Too much heat and you will soften the adhesive too much and some will get left behind. Get it right and you should be able to lift a corner and peel the sticker away without leaving any adhesive behind. Don't worry if there is a bit of adhesive left behind as that isopropyl alcohol you bought (!!) will easily remove it.
