Made in Britain

All our Artgecko sketchbooks are hand-finished and made with the same passion artists have creating their own masterpieces; right here in lil’ old Britain using premium British paper.

We’re proud of the quality acid-free materials we use to put together each sketchbook, so you know that each page is not only a page, rather a sustainable canvas to express your creativity.

Hand finished

Manufacturing our sketchbooks in Britain means we can rely on skilled people to add the finishing touches to the range.

Take the little embossed gecko footprint on the back of our covers for instance. These are pressed by Andy, using our trusty old (but reliable) Kwickprint embossing press.

Quality paper

A choice of superior acid free papers. All-media 150gsm toothy white cartridge paper perfect for pencil, charcoal, conté and pastel.

Or jet black 200gsm card, ideal for coloured pencils, pastels and chalk. Also great for mounting photos and other artwork.

Kind on nature

The whole of our sketchbooks are sourced from sustainable forests and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®).

This means Gecko’s all over the world can sleep soundly, knowing we do our utmost to keep their habitats safe.
