For the past year we have been celebrating our 25th anniversary as Paperblanks journals. Over our 25-year history we’ve experimented with different cover designs, binding types and closures, but one thing that has always remained consistent is our passion for the written word and self-expression.

Whether you use a journal for to-do lists, sketching and artwork, reflecting on your innermost feelings or composing your magnum opus, we hope that notebooks have found a meaningful place in your life, as they have in ours.

To thank you for 25 great years of Paperblanks, we’re giving away 25 journals in this, our final anniversary celebration.

Contest Details

Share a post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that says – in 25 words or fewer – what journalling means to you. Tag a friend who also loves journalling, tag us (@paperblanks) and use the hashtag #Paperblanks25 so that we can receive your entry.

We’ll be running the contest for four weeks in the month of March (March 5th through 30th) and will review all entries at the end, with the 25 winners announced the first week of April.

What Do I Win?

We’ll be giving away 25 journals, and the writers of the 25 best entries (based on the authenticity and thoughtfulness of the response) will each receive a Paperblanks journal of their choice (new or vintage!). The winning entries will also be featured on a slideshow here on the Endpaper Blog and on our social media.

  1. I came to know Paperblanks very recently and since then I consider journalling as a passionate activity. I write things that are close to my heart in my Paperblanks journal, Bukhara. This gives me the reason to love life and above all, treasuring it.
