Although he has Hungarian roots, David spent most of his life in London. It is the city where he studied International Business in English and Spanish, by which he paved the way for his working career. His Spanish knowledge quickly turned out to be very useful, since one of the first steps in his career has been to move to Spain. Get to know David, his job, and his ambition within Camaloon.
The city can be seen as an extra perk of working at Camaloon
Working in Barcelona brings many additional advantages. “I love to work and live in this city, for example for its culture, weather, and beach. For me, it is a very positive contrast compared to the busy nature of London.” After the decision to move to Barcelona, it was time to look for a job. David became Account Manager for the UK market at Camaloon, and he is a valuable member of our team for one and a half years now. “The position fitted really well with my previous experience in guest relations. The most important thing is that it is about making people happy.” How he does it? “Essentially by doing as much as you can do for our customers, for example by responding to requests, following up on orders, or providing aftercare. It is about building a firm relationship with them.”
Willing to go the extra mile
A lot has changed since David’s first day at Camaloon. “My goal is to help Camaloon grow in the UK market and to keep developing myself as well. When I started at Camaloon, I was the only one in the department. Now we are with three, and there is still a lot of space for growth.” At Camaloon we look for new Junior Sales Development Representatives for different European markets. “It is a diverse job, you should for example be organized, proactive, able to sell, and to follow up. These are only to name a few. It comes down to be willing to go the extra mile."

After studying and gaining work experience in several countries, Veronica decided that it was time to move from Italy to Spain for a new adventure. So she did, and she has been working at Camaloon for almost a year already. During the past year she clearly experienced the dynamic and innovative character of Camaloon, as she changed job positions within the company twice and feels how the organisation is evolving each day. We talked with Veronica about her journey.
Plenty of opportunities to grow
Personal learning and development are fundamental within Camaloon. This is perfectly illustrated by the moves that Veronica made within the company. "I started in November 2017 as an intern at Customer Support. Already in January 2018 I became a Business Developer within the sales department, and last month I advanced to Junior Account Manager." Her interest in sales and her proficiency in as much as five languages made these advancements possible. "You can feel that there are many opportunities to grow within the company." The next language to acquire? "Catalan. The people within the company come from all over the world. That really helps in learning to speak new languages."
Finding enjoyment in your job
Being an account manager means being in contact with people all day, be it handling questions, problems, or other requests. "I am an outgoing person, I love to communicate with customers and helping them. It feels really good when your customers are happy with the process, with their products, or when they show they appreciate the personal interaction." Being an account manager also means collaborating and being connected with employees in several other departments. "The team is very young and fun to work in. This brings a positive vibe during work, but even more during our weekly after-work beers!"

New notebooks and new techniques to personalise them
Perhaps you've already noticed when you visit Camaloon: in addition to offering you a new way to navigate between our articles, we now have new printing techniques on some of our new notebook models. So you can add a more original and high quality touch when you personalise your notebooks.
We can divide into our two big groups new collection of notebooks to personalise. On the one hand, we maintain existing models and incorporate spiral-bound notebooks with a ballpoint pen, multifunction notebooks that are very practical and useful as a commercial communication tool, vintage-style notebooks with soft or hard covers, or even covers with a denim effect.
The techniques used until now to print personalised notebooks
We offer you the 'classic' techniques of printing to personalise your notebooks: screen printing and full-colour digital printing. What are their characteristics?
- Screen printing is a very common printing process, that has been used for more than one hundred years. What this technology does is reproduce your logo or design on a screen mesh (called screen printing), through which the ink passes to the surface to be printed. This process is repeated for each one of the colours that your design has, and in the case of Camaloon we do a maximum of eight different colours. It is a great printing technique for logos or simple designs, precise and good quality.
- The full-colour digital printing is similar to how you would print with a paper printer. The machines take care of mixing four inks to result in a very wide range of colours. It is a perfect technique if your design is a photograph or a composition with many colours or shades of colours.
The good news is that you can always order the units you need: depending on the colours of your design and the number of notebooks you want to personalise, we will choose the printing technique that best fits in terms of result and price. In this way, you can, for example, personalise exclusive notebooks: imagine organising a contest to design notebook covers for an event among your employees. With the winning design you will be able to personalise notebooks and distribute them among your collaborators. You can have not only a wide assortment of models, but also a wide range of colors and designs on the same model of notebooks. Personalise notebooks thinking of offering variety within an item used daily.
And, as always, if what you really want to do is save on the purchase of your personalised items, what you want to do is place a wholesale order. You can have a wide range of personalised notebooks to distribute at any event or to your customers, with your logo and the name of your business. Pocket books and multipurpose notebooks take up little space and are easy to distribute, for example.
Laser printing and debossing to personalise your notebooks with a 'chic' and elegant touch
Here comes another one of our most exclusive new releases. Because we know that on special occasions you want your personalised notebooks to be high quality, through materials and more durable printing, we offer models of notebooks that will help you to stand out from the rest: with metallic colors, imitation leather covers, even models of the iconic Moleskine® notebooks! You'll see on our website that you can personalise these notebooks with traditional printing techniques, as well as more sophisticated ones: laser printing and debossing. What do they consist of?
- With laser printing, we engrave your design directly on the cover of the notebooks, with maximum detail, a perfect finish and a precise, durable and resistant print. With this technique what we do is very precisely cut layers of the cover material of the notebooks to reproduce your design on them.
- The printing with debossing gives a a finish with class on the Moleskine® notebooks, since it transfers your design under heat and pressure on the covers, keeping the colour the same. And you can make your purchase from only 25 units!
