FIELD NOTES Front Page 2Packs
FIT TO PRINT, AND RE-PRINT
People frequently asked us to make a Reporter’s Notebook and one person in particular was adamant about it. So we did. Our Summer 2016 “Byline” Edition was apparently exactly what people had hoped for. It was an instant classic, and quickly sold out. Then even more people wrote to ask us to make more Reporter’s Notebooks. So we did. They’re called “Front Page” and are now a permanent part of our line.
For our 2019 printing of “Front Page” we have freshened things up and made a few changes. The cover is a heavier 130#DTC Neenah stock, in a dark “Wrought Iron” gray, with metallic silver ink. The innards are the same Cougar 70# text paper as always, but this time in a bright white with light gray college-ruled lines. The Double-O-Binding is black rather than silver. It looks and feels great.
The basic specifications remain unchanged, it’s sized perfectly for your hands, easy to write in with one hand while holding it with the other. The cover protects the wire binding, so it doesn’t get caught on fabric or stuff in your backpack. It’s college-ruled for optimal page economy. The diameter of the binding and the die-cut holes that the binding passes through are optimized for maximum “flippability.” And the handy pocket in the back cover makes for a thicker, more stable hand-held writing surface, and also gives you a place to stash a shred of evidence or a receipt for the cocktails you bought to ply a reluctant witness.
Proudly printed by the good people of eDoc Communications, Mount Prospect, Ill.
