JournalBooks Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Supplier Journalbooks (PPAI 110769, S10) is celebrating its 50th year in business. Established as Timeplanner Calendars by Jerome O’Boyle in 1971, JournalBooks today offers made-to-order journals and planners as part of PCNA, which acquired the company in 2007.
JournalBooks President Tim O’Boyle, Jerome’s son, says the company’s focus 50 years later is the same as it was when it first started: customer solutions. “At JournalBooks today, we still believe that our wide array of U.S.-made paper products helps build brands and deliver an end customer’s message. We have always been a solutions-driven company, and since launching our JournalBooks line in the mid-’90s, it has given us a much wider platform to create unique custom products for our customers.”
Jerome O’Boyle’s six sons—Jim, Tom, Larry, Joe, Tim and Patrick—built on the tradition of creating custom paper products, pioneering the category of custom journals and notebooks. That commitment to innovative solutions has won JournalBooks numerous industry awards and many loyal customers.
“We certainly want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to all the customers who’ve made this milestone possible,” O’Boyle says, adding that several special offers are planned to celebrate the anniversary. “Along with our amazing employees, of course, our customers are the ones who’ve made 50 years possible.”
