We’re thrilled to launch our Shark Bite family of custom shaped notebooks, just in time for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week 2015! The shark bite concept has been in the works for several months now, and our prototype 5.5” x 8.5” shark bite notebook was a crowd favorite at several past trade shows. When the Gotcha Covered team saw the continued popularity of the notebook, it only made sense to add the product to the current web catalog and make it fully available to consumers.
After designing several different versions in different sizes with various bite cutouts in the top right corner, our team finalized the concept as an 8.5” x 8.5” notebook with 5 different cover designs, including an option to upload your own image and turn the shark bite cutout into a truly unique creation. The notebooks also include 2 different interior paper options, one lined and one sketch, both with a fun shark fin design to match the shark theme. As with a typical Gotcha Covered notebook, use our design studio to fully customize the front and back cover with a name and message, and choose any spiral color you wish.

Next Monday, like most of the nation, the Gotcha Covered team will celebrate Memorial Day. While the holiday marks the unofficial start to summer fun with barbeques and parties, Memorial Day is also a time for reflection. On this day, we celebrate the servicemen and women who have passed courageously fighting to keep our nation free.
As a small business, we are thankful for that freedom and the ability to create and sell a product that we love however we choose. We are incredibly proud that our notebooks are all handmade, one at a time in our printing production facility in the thriving small town of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. Before we had even launched, we donated over 1,000 notebooks to our local community and we’re always looking for ways to support American families. Our goal is to give children the tools to be creative and brainstorm ideas so that they can one day live their own American Dream and have endless opportunities for success through hard work and dedication.
What does it mean to be sustainable?
There are 3 factors that go in to a sustainable business. The first on the list is people. An organization must have a social responsibility or an obligation to benefit society at large. The second factor would be economic value or profits. The third factor that truly makes a business sustainable is environmental protection and conservation.
It goes without saying that being environmentally conscious these days is very important. At Gotcha Covered Notebooks, we are proud to say that our printing facility is certified by the SGP, or the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership. SGP promotes “best practices, networking, and innovation among raw material manufacturers, converters, printers, finishing facilities, trade association, and print buyers." 
Along with the obvious environmental advantage of a certified facility, there is also the personal consumer benefit. With more sustainable practices, efficiency in operations increases. This leads to decreased costs for the company and ultimately a lower price for our products!
