Set up by Grandfather Hexspoor in 1945 and now run by the third generation of the Hexspoor family. They strive for excellence and embrace bespoke requirements. They work with us to refine our notebook designs, trialling materials and bindings.

WINDMILL PRINT
A family-run business based in Bridge of Don, just north of Aberdeen, Scotland. We work closely with Windmill as we develop new concepts, and through proofing and printing of each item. We like working with them as they are perfectionists who take great pride in their work. They use three beautifully-maintained Original Heidelberg machines, as well as a litho press.
