    If it uses the same spacing and hole size as a regular pocket or compact planner, you could probably find a Franklin-Covey punch to fit. I found an adjustable Swingline punch at a local stationary store once, that could accommodate several different planner sizes.

    Need to find a small 6 ring hole punch

I'm having fun with this now. :-) If TB made a small version of the journal I'd be all over it.
    Do you have any idea where I can find a small 6 ring hole punch for a Louis Vuitton PM Agenda.. I have had no luck!!

    I've been using the Moleskine Evernote Squared edition. Right now I'm carrying the large one. I like the dotted square ruling on the pages... I don't always scan to Evernote, but when I do, the ruling disappears and I get a nice clear image. Also they come with a set of stickers that Evernote recognizes and thus can act as a tag within the Evernote system. Also the embossing on the front cover is just too cool.

    You may wish to explore and post you question on the Fountain Pen Network. The forum "Paper and Pen Paraphernalia" is full of posts about all things notebook. Many helpful people will respond.

    Maybe Tom is going to release a pocket size FJN?

    In the meantime, check small and big box stationary stores, especially now that it is back to school, you might find what your need.

    Do the same with scrapbook stores and craft stores as well as pen stores.

    They're from Grove. I'd been ogling these covers for awhile...haven't gotten one (yet).

There are extensive notes taken daily, as the project morphs, and I take them in a large ruled Moleskin, which, upon completion, I give to the artist as a momento of the project.

    I found this company which engraves a leather binder for Moleskins, either from their library of art, or any graphic you send them. Here's a picture of my elephant, who helps me remember what I need to do next.[ATTACH]2795[/ATTACH]
    Where is this company that engraves the leather like that? Would you mind sharing their contact info/URL?

    Thank you!

    Field Notes and Travelers Notebook

    Field notes are my favorite for EDC and just throwing in your pocket.

    Used to use Moleskine a while back but my favorite now is the Midori Travelers notebook in both regular and passport size.

    These look amazing; I can't find them anywhere in the US. Do you know if they are available anywhere here?

    For years I have been carrying pens and paper (notebooks) with me but I have recently tried to scale down what I carry on an everyday basis as I often get neck/back ache.
    I am now using a system called X47 from Germany (the A6 Organizer Expert) which can hold up to 4 notebooks, including a calendar, so no need to carry one separately - big bonus if you want to downsize!
    I bought an organiser with 3 rods in it, and then I got one extra rod in case I need/want to carry 4 notebooks with me. Currently, 3 rods have proven to be enough: one rod holds a calendar (1 week on 2 pages), the other 2 rods hold one lined notebook and one 'grid' notebook.
    When I need a larger notebook I use either Leuchtturm 1917 or a Guildhall notebook, both in A5 format, but I don't carry those with me on a daily basis anymore since getting the X47 - and my neck is thanking me

    I own several "clip in" notebooks by Roterfaden. Just spectacularly versatile.
    My notebooks are either A5 or A6 size. A5 for work, A6 in my ECB.

    Here's an example:

    Where did you purchase the blue cord and the leather?
    Thanks! The leather is pretty much the cheapest tooling vegetable-tanned stuff I could get at Tandy leather. The original cord I used was some blue glitter beading elastic I got from Joann Fabrics, but later I bought a beading elastic sampler off Etsy and picked the color I liked best. I'm going to go with thicker elastic for the larger one I'm doing -- the 1mm beading elastic is so thin that I had to double up on it.
