A SYSTEM FOR PLANNING: CHECK.
A pocket-sized weekly planner and a “to-do” book rank at the very top of the list of things people have asked Field Notes to make throughout the years.
Each 3-Pack of Memo Books includes one 56-page Date Book and two 48-page Checklist Journals.
The covers are made from bright, beautiful Cyan, Red, and White 80#C Vellum paper from Mohawk, stamped with matte Crown foils.
The inside pages are a very light grey 60#T Domtar Earth Choice printed with white and medium grey inks. The Checklist Journals are subtly ruled with contrasting white/grey blocks and a “Slot Screw-Head Device” at the start of each line for marking completed and partially completed tasks. The Date Book displays one week on each page. Together, the two formats can be used in any number of ways as a complete and portable planning system. There’s no single “correct” system for filling in the “screw-heads,” they left it as flexible as possible.
Proudly printed by the good people of eDOC Communications, Mount Prospect, Ill.
