Appointed Notebooks

I’ve been spotting these Appointed notebooks in a few Brooklyn boutiques. Appointed is a brand of American-made notebooks and desktop products, which originally started as a Kickstarter project. I haven’t tried their notebooks yet, but they are certainly nice to look at. They come in blank, lined, and grid versions, with perforated pages and a […]

Mixiw Notebooks

Here’s a recent successful Kickstarter project, the Mixiw notebook. I’m not sure how to pronounce Mixiw– mixee? mix-ew? Anyway, it looks like a nice concept– a variety of inserts will be available and you can mix and match them in the cover, and archive them in a binder when you’re done. The binding system looks […]

Review & Giveaway: CR Brand Notebook Wallets

I first came across the CR Signature Notebook Wallet a few months ago and immediately thought it was a great idea. A notebook and a wallet are both key daily carry items for almost everyone, so shouldn’t there be a good way to combine them? But it’s surprisingly hard to find something that does both […]

New and Improved Penroll!

Remember the Penroll? I reviewed it a while back: The Penroll is part notebook cover, but mainly a holder for pens, pencils or brushes, and an eraser. It is made of sturdy stitched canvas, with small metal clips at the sides that clasp onto your notebook. The design is very simple and un-fussy, with just […]

Rekonnect Magnetic Notebook

I love this notebook idea but it makes me mad! Why does it make me mad? Because I had a version of this idea myself but I wasn’t savvy enough to figure out how to put it on Kickstarter and raise over $175,000 to make it happen! I think many of us notebook lovers have […]
