Description

Chicago notepad is one in a series of small city notepads. We work with a local printer down the street to bind the 30 paged inside notepad. Then we letterpress print the cover, wrap around and attach. It fits perfect in your pocket.

CHI measures 3"x5.5" with two rounded corners and is full of 30 whitewash colored 100% recycled pages. The pages are a wonderful smooth text weight and perfect for drawing, writing, gluing, and even erasing. The cover is heavy weight chipboard and is letterpress printed on chipboard with an original illustration of a map of Chicago.

This listing is for one Chicago notepad, collect all 5: New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle, NYC.

These notebooks are just the best! The paper has a marvelous weight and finish to write on, and is soft on the eye. I find the dimensions perfect for long format writing. The binding is superior and the spine is just wide enough to allow you to name the volumes for bookshelf filing. I found my first of these at Elliot Bay bookshop in Seattle and have yet to find a nicer notebook to use, anywhere on the market. This miracle is further being produced with recycled paper. The expedient covers are hard wearing with an inexplicably satisfying slight furriness after much travel, snow immersion and general life accompaniment. Just like finding that perfect pen, the pleasant mood of this notebook increases my writing volume. These guys are putting other much larger notebook producers in this price range to shame with value for money.

[printing]

The impression you see in our printed paper goods will vary depending on the paper and type of relief image we use. A lino cut leaves less impression than a magnesium plate, for example. While we enjoy the texture debossing creates, we cannot exceed the ability of our press or compromise our type or print blocks to make a deeper impression than good printing demands. In everything we print, we strive to maintain high quality and strong design.
