...And its Hello from me

Posted by Bold Apps on

It’s like the first day at a new school. Everywhere I look, things to learn and understand. A web interface, an accounts package, payment gateways, a bunch of suppliers, where to begin? I start where Dan and Tony started; with you, the most important people of all, the customers.  Once I have some handle on all the technology, my first order of business is to get stocked up. Already on the way are two notebooks new to the site, which should be available at the end of the week. Later today, I will be speaking to all the amazing suppliers...

Goodnight from Me and Goodnight from Him

Posted by Tony Short on

It comes with a heavy heart that Dan and I are writing our final blog post as owners of Pocket Notebooks as we announce the acquisition of the business by a new UK business. We’ve had nothing but enjoyment and pleasure starting and growing this business over the past 18 months. What started out as a site for Field Notes has quickly established itself as the specialists for all pocket sized notebooks; a site brave enough to introduce new brands to UK and Europe, and one constantly thriving to provide excellent customer service. With that said, Pocket Notebooks reached an...

This update is taking a slightly different approach to previous ones, whereby we really want to open up to some of the biggest challenges we’re now facing since establishing Pocket Notebooks in 2015. Hobonichi Experience Let’s get the hard one out the way to start with. Yes, it’s been three months since we learnt we could no longer supply the Hobonichi Techo, but we still aren’t over...

Got writing envy? We completely agree and highly recommend you check out more of Scribble over at United Inkdom.

Quarter Two Update

Posted by Tony Short on

Past Three Months In 30 Seconds We started the quarter by taking a trip to the National Stationery Show in April. It was an Aladdin's cave full of stationery joy, but unfortunately very little in terms of a quality UK manufacture of pocket sized notebooks. That said, definitely one to add to our calendar next year - we may even exhibit to scratch that itch! We’ve introduced another new brand with a range of different notebooks from the guys at Baron Fig (more on that later). We also got a bit risqué by opening the packs of notebooks to create...
