Want to learn how to make a scratch pad or note pad from scratch? It’s simple. All it takes to get started is a modest $150 investment. This will cover your padding press, bottle of glue, and brush. Padding presses are so simple to use, even an elementary student and be trained how to do it.
You simply take the stack of paper you want to pad, make sure it’s jogged, or even on all sides. Place it on the padding press platform, made sure the end you will pad is straight and justified. If you take a look at the image on the left, you can see a board standing vertically that helps you straighten the pages of your pad.
You then secure the stack of paper with the padding press clamps. Now remove the board. Apply the padding glue to the side you want to pad with the brush. You can use either white or red padding adhesive. They both work the same, it’s simply up to you to decide what color you like.
Let the glue dry for at least 10-15 minutes. After the glue has dried, remove your new pad of paper and then continue with the next stack. We highly recommend using chip board to give your note pad a firm base. You can find padding presses here.
We also have a helpful video demo that shows you how to make a note pad.
