While a desk pad does protect desk surfaces, these paper underlays offer a number of other practical uses, e.g. as sketchbooks or blotting pads. At print24.com, you can have desk pads printed with your motifs or texts in two conventional formats, including with special colours, from batches as small as 50 to large volumes of 20,000 pads at a time. Whether for your office, your clinic or for promotional gifts, desk pads by print24.com are the perfect combination of high-quality printing and low prices. You too can benefit from our expertise as one of Europe’s largest online print shops!
Personalised desk pad – The perfect blotting pad
Paper desk pads are also excellent blotting pads. Not only does the paper serve as an underlay when signing letters or taking notes, but the individual sheets themselves can also be written on. The pads thus provide lots of space for quick notes during telephone conversations or, with the appropriate form, for important appointments, which can later be transferred to your diary.
The advantages of paper desk pads
Many different materials like transparent plastic or even high-quality leather can be used for desk pads. Unlike these, paper offers a number of advantages:
- The desk pad can actually be used as an underlay to write on
- It can be reused several times as a sketchbook or week planner
- No cleaning required, since a new paper can simply be used
- Cheap to buy
- Highly customisable with logos and imprints
- Easy to manufacture in corporate designs
The desk sketchbook
It’s not just architects who create sketches of their buildings; fashion designers also rely on pencils and paper when it comes to quickly recording ideas. And almost everyone in an office will use diagrams and sketches to illustrate facts to others or explain an action plan. In this case, desk pads by print24.com can also be used as practical sketchbooks, which are always on hand when you’re at your desk.
Recommended desk-pad motifs
What should you print on a desk pad? One recommendation would be pre-set grids for appointments. In this way, one single sheet can quickly become a temporary diary or week planner, ideal for doctor’s surgeries, offices, or law firms. If you wish to use your desk pads as promotional gifts, it’s also important to feature your logo or slogan, as well as your corporate design colours. Another useful option could be pre-set grids with the labels “important” or “don’t forget” to help you structure your notes.
Desk pads for your staff
If you run your own company, you may provide desk pads for your staff, asking your team about their preferred motifs beforehand. We have sufficient printing capacities to create desk pads even for larger businesses, where the sheets can quickly be used up, especially when the pads are being used as diaries or week planners.
Tip: Use the desk pads as promotional gifts, so you can always be present at your customers’ workplace with your company logo or a known slogan!
Practical formats for many desk-pad sizes
Desk pads can be ordered from print24.com in two practical sizes. The smaller 335 x 485-mm format is ideal for when your pads have to be used on many different desks, or if they have to share the space with a computer keyboard.
If you opt for the DIN A2 (420 x 594 mm) format, you’ll enjoy lots of room for your motifs or text. These large desk pads cover a vast part of the work space.
Paper, style and format
Both desk-pad sizes are glued. You can choose whether to have the top or bottom glued, based on the standard landscape format.
When it comes to printing, you can opt for 90 g/m²Offset or the more environmentally friendly, white 80 g/m² Recycled paper, which also bears the Blue Angel certificate. Both paper types can be used in all conventional printers, so if you wish to print individual sheets of your desk pads yourself, it’s no problem at all.
At print24.com, you can order your printed desk pads in a thin version with 25 sheets or a thicker version with 50 sheets.
Many different printing options for your desk pads
We boast the full spectrum of modern printing when it comes to your desk pads. The cheapest variant is simple black-and-white printing. If, however, you wish to use special colours, we recommend Pantone or HKS, giving you over 1,700 special colours to choose from. For particular visual effects, you can also add gold or silver lettering. Both Pantone/HKS and silver/gold can be combined with conventional CMYK four-colour printing or the simple black-and-white printing. It is always the front side of the pad which is printed on; the back is left plain.
Below is an overview of the available combinations:
- 1/0-coloured Black
- 2/0-coloured Black + HKS
- 2/0-coloured Black + Pantone

Hard-copy or digital preview
For a small surcharge, we can create a digital preview of your desk pads. We store the screenproof in your customer account, and you can view the result on your PC in a resolution of 150 dpi. If you like it, you can start the printing order directly in your customer account. If not, you have the option of cancelling your order.
If you choose a paperproof, we’ll send you a print-out of the front side of your desk pads by post, which generally arrives the next working day. You can then see the print quality for yourself in natural lighting. Here, too, you can start the order straight away if you’re satisfied with the product, or cancel it if the paperproof doesn’t meet your expectations.
Want a bit more? Batches up to 20,000 pads
We accept orders from as small as 50 items when it comes to printing desk pads. This quantity is ideal for smaller offices with few staff. But we can just as easily print large volumes of up to 50,000 desk pads at a time, e.g. for your advertising. When do you want to print your desk pads? Start configuring now at print24.com!
