Just received my personal logbook keeping a dignified record of my sea service. A beautifully crafted document that was custom-created by the very nice people at Log Books Unlimited. Very happy with my purchase.

Returning customer. EPA requires us to have a bound notebook. It was very easy to design my own custom book in Excel and send it to Log Books Unlimited. Quoting is fast. Art approval is fast. Shipping is fast. Books are high quality. Everyone who sees our custom books are impressed with how much easier it is to document our daily operations compared to a simple lined notebook.

Log Books does beautiful work! Can bring them any custom request and they deliver. I got some custom journals and planners made recently that you can't find without getting custom made for future years. Family has worked with them for years and will continue to do so.

- Apex Angling

Got 35 copies of a user manual for one of our clients. Really happy with the products as well as the full process. Very transparent. Keep in mind that a lot of advanced planning is required and everyone at Log Books has been clear on this too.
