Papio Press Review - by Amanda Fleet

Posted by Bold Apps on

Last week we started stocking a range of notebooks by Papio Press. I asked my friend and writing mentor, Dr Amanda Fleet, to review them. Amanda is in some ways, the reason that I'm here. She awoke my dormant interest in all things stationery a year or so ago. She has a superb blog over at http://paperpensink.blogspot.co.uk on all things stationery and planning. A published author, Amanda also blogs at http://amandafleet.co.uk (Her thriller, 'The Wrong Kind of Clouds', is a great read!) The review below was originally published on 'Paperpensink'. Amanda doesn't do things by halves... Enjoy!! Stuart. Tigers by Papio Press...

The new boy's first week

Posted by Bold Apps on

What does this button do? Never, ever, has that question led to something good. Thus far, anything that I have broken, I have managed to fix again. There is now a delivery charge on UK orders of less than £13.50. On smaller orders, the postman was the only one making any money. Naturally, it's easily avoided, just put another pack in the basket. :-) Apart from not trying to break anything, this week has been all about ordering stock. Tony and Dan have been finishing off the last of the January subscription boxes, and the last ones will be going...

...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...

Quarter Three Update

Posted by Tony Short on

Well then, what’s this? Our quarterly update six weeks later than originally planned. I guess that theme is something in-common with how the past four months have been for us at Pocket Notebooks. 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...
