Why Every Artist Needs A Mod Notebook

Mod Notebooks for every artist

I used to LOOOOOOVE Moleskine notebooks. The thick pages and hard cover really won me over. Not to mention the social community of artists they have. However, a few months ago I found these wondrous, perfectly-sized sketchbooks called Mod Notebooks and I think I have a new love in my life.

These notebooks also have nice thick pages and a hard cover, so what’s the difference?

Well, with Mod Notebooks, I have the ability to digitize all of my drawings. Actually, I don’t even have to do it. There’s a little pocket in the back of each notebook with a pre-paid shipping envelope inside. When I fill up the sketchbook, all I have to do is pop it in the mail. The company will digitize the book I sent them and all of my drawings will be accessible through the app within 5 days. Aaaaaand I can choose whether or not I want them to send the sketchbook back to me or recycle it.

Who can argue with a deal like that?

Who should have one?

Arguably, everyone. But I’m realistic and I understand that not everyone wants to spend $30 on all of that.

Any artists could benefit from using these sketchbooks. Architects, illustrators, crafters, CAD designers, product developers… the list goes on.

you can customize the pages to your preferences, too. If you need plain, dotted, or lined paper, it is available. I’m actually surprised that that didn’t have graph paper available, but I wouldn’t doubt that is coming.


Full disclosure: I was not paid to write this post. I am just a huge advocate of awesome sketchbooks and wanted to tell everyone I know about it.

  1. This is really cool. I am a big notebook user (drawings, lists, reminders) and digitizing some or all of a notebook would be great, even better when it is a service included with the notebook. Thanks for sharing! I will be keeping an eye out for these.
