The Standard Memorandum 2017.

Introducing: The Standard Memorandum Notebook

Inspired by pocket journals from the early to mid 1900's, The Standard Memorandum is designed to chronicle a year of your life. Word. has teamed up with designer and illustrator, Jon Contino, to create a modern version of this storied notebook. The Standard Memorandum is laid out so you simply jot down a line or two every day for a year and are left with a memento you can save or pass down. The project began after Jon discovered his wife's great-grandfather's pocket journals from the early 1900's that basically recreated what his life was like. Born out of a desire to start doing this himself, Jon partnered with Word. Notebooks to create a journal like the ones he found. The Standard Memorandum is that journal.

Getting ready for 2017.

Are your planners ready for the 2017 ahead? 

For my 2016, I had changed a couple of planners, and I lost track how many planners I had used. 
I find it a little messy for me.

So for my 2017, I have set aside these planner / notebooks:
Left: Traveler's Company Camel regular size Traveler's Notebook.
Top Right: Traveler's Company Camel passport size Traveler's Notebook.
Bottom Right: Traveler's Company Black passport size Traveler's Notebook.

Field Notes Black Ice, in Singapore

Field Notes Black Ice has finally arrived in Singapore!!

With it's shiny cover, it is certainly an attraction.
Unlike the normal edition, this is the first edition without staples (PUR Binding), therefore some users might not like it as it will makes writing harder.

With it's Ruled paper, it gives a vintage feel.
If you are an old-school type of person, this is the notebook you should keep inside your pocket.

Many users are concern if Black Ice are fountain pen friendly?
I tried out with a fountain pen with an EF nib, and it doesn't bleed through. 
But I had read some reviews that this is not the notebook for fountain pen users.

The price for this edition is SGD$22.00 (excluding postage fee).
To order, drop us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. 

Shiny cover for this edition.
