About this project

Penroll - storage for your notebook

Quite simply, Penroll is a storage device that attaches to your notebook, giving you quick and easy access to all your essential stationery.

"I love travelling, sketching and drawing. Penroll was developed to solve a simple but frustrating problem for me - forgetting and misplacing my pens!" Michael Ruthenbury, Founder

“It's the perfect notebook companion for students, engineers, architects or anyone who likes to sketch whenever the need takes them! It means that you can have all your stationery right there, stowed next to the notebook itself!" 

"It really is such a simple and easy-to-use product. You'll wonder how you ever went without one!"

Here are some of the details...

  • Attached / detached from your notebook quickly and easily
  • Notebook can be open and closed when Penroll attached
  • Penroll can be unbuttoned at the back and laid flat (e.g. on a desk)
  • Can store up to 9 items of everyday stationery (e.g. pens, pencils, ruler, etc.) 
  • Made from hard-wearing canvas and available in a variety of colours
  • This one size of Penroll fits A5 and A4 notebook, as well as large Moleskine© notebooks 
  • Penroll is patent protected so you can be sure you will be the proud owner of a unique design.

Risks and challenges

1)Sourcing the right manufacturer for Penroll.
I will visit factories and examine previous Products that they have made in order to check quality and to see their capacity and working environment.
2)Delays with production.
Although there will always be a risk of this Penroll has been designed to have as few parts as possible so to make the manufacture of each Penroll as efficient as it can be.
3)Quality not being up to scratch
Before confirming the order, samples will be produced to test quality, these samples will go through a rigorous testing process in in different situations, to make sure that the final product will be up to the highest standard.
