Story Supply

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

We carry a lot of notebook brands here at Pocket Notebooks, and I'll be honest, I love them all. This one though, has a special place in my heart. Story Supply was, from its inception, making a difference. Shamelessly, we took inspiration from that and our own subscription package gives a little something back to our partner charity, the National Literacy Trust. We just replenished our Story Supplies (irresistible pun, I'm sorry) and I felt compelled to give a shout-out on these awesome notebooks. 1. The Pocket Staple.

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

It's here! The Field Notes Campfire edition is in stock and ready to go. Want to find out more? Here's my opinion on the Campfire, some specifications and a little review about how it performs with fountain pens. Field Notes Campfire Edition: first impressions As you may know, my writing weapon of choice is almost always a fountain pen. Fountain pens and Field Notes are not necessarily the easiest of bedfellows. Let me allow the man behind Field Notes speak for himself: "So, when designing those initial versions of Field Notes, it just came down to "How functional could these be?"...

June Report

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

Hey there. After a record May, June was looking quiet. Then we had a birthday weekend sale. Wow. That got busy, quick. Subscribers all got a bonus box as a thank you from us, to celebrate our second birthday. Last month the curated subscription was Field Notes themed, including Limited Editions. The debate is hotting up for this month. Sign up here. Clare has been busy fulfilling order this month for 'Teacher's presents'.
