What's the story?

Traveler (left) & Origin (right)
Traveler (left) & Origin (right)

Code and Quill was started with a single goal: make beautiful notebooks for creatives. We believe that there are brilliant people of all kinds out there: developers, designers, artists, engineers, creators, and thinkers. As creatives, we know that there are a lot of fantastic digital tools out there to help bring our ideas to life. But what about those tools that we use off the screen? There's a certain freedom in taking pen to paper in order to express the thoughts that we have, as we have them. We found that, while there are many notebooks of all shapes and sizes out there, none truly embodied the characteristics we found important for our work. And so we decided that we'd make them. 

Let's talk about our notebooks.

Our work is a reflection of who we are, and it was important that we made these notebooks to be the perfect companion for creatives who not only need something functional, but also attractive. It's not enough just to throw some shoddy paper into some pieces of cardboard and call it a notebook (though that does seem to be the "industry standard"). 

Our two notebooks, the Origin and the Traveler, were designed to offer a great set of useful features without going overboard. The paper is thick and durable, ready for your ideas no matter where you may have them. The binding is sewn with quality thread, and constructed in a way to allow the notebooks to lie flat, no matter what page you're on. 

Of course, it was important that the pages themselves provided a unique way to categorize your thoughts. The left-side pages of our notebooks all have a dot grid to allow for sketches, drawings, and wireframes. The right-side pages all contain our special Indentation Rule, which provides a narrow ruling with vertical dash-marks every 5 millimeters to allow notes, lists, paragraphs, and code to be properly indented and neatly kept. 

We could go on and on, but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words:

Lays flat!
Lays flat!

Show me what I can get!

It doesn't matter how much you pledge; we appreciate every little bit of support we get! The more people that show interest, the more great stuff we can bring to you. Without further adieu, here are the rewards!

Note: We'll collect all the color choices of our backers at the end of the campaign.

What will you do with my money?

We're sure many of you have lots of questions about what exactly your money will be used for. There's a lot that goes into developing a new product. Sampling, manufacturing, shipping, quality assurance; these are just a few examples.

Risks and challenges

Though we've already sourced our necessary materials and manufacturers, there's certainly a lot of unforeseen things that could happen during the process of manufacturing the product, shipping it to us, and finally, shipping it to you. Depending on the popularity of this campaign, there could be potential delays with shipping if we don't happen to get our notebooks in time, or if something arises during our quality control phase. Naturally, we've done all the preparation we can possibly do to make sure that this is as smooth of an experience as possible. If there are ever any issues, we will certainly be very transparent with our backers, and will make sure that we fix any problems that may arise throughout the entire process of fulfilling your pledges. Thank you again for your support!
