Cupcycling Cartridge Paper is made in the UK by reprocessing used coffee cups, collected from coffee shops and turning them into beautiful luxury paper. Made from 80% used coffee cups, this luxury 140gsm notepaper not only turns a waste product into a beautiful paper, the paper is also 100% recyclable after use.

The lined pages are printed using a Risograph printer. This printing approach uses minimal power compared to conventional printing and uses rice bran oil ink, a by-product of rice production. Lines are printed in fluorescent pink ink.

Why we love Badly Made Books

They are rubbish……. but in a good way. Badly Made Books use papers made from recycled fibres and post consumer waste, including used coffee cups, that's given a new life in your notebook. Notepaper is printed using a risograph duplicator - a printing method that uses inks made from by-products from rice production.

They are anything but badly made! The recycled tape binding means that their notebooks lie flat allowing you to comfortably write on both sides of the page.

They believe less is more.  All Badly Made Books are printed, bound and shipped from their workshop in Cork City by founder Seán O’Sullivan and his team. Seán aims to use as little ink as possible to minimise the environmental impact of printing so imagery and designs are intentionally restrained and beautifully minimalist.
