About this project

SLICE was started with a single goal in mind: make a beautiful, yet useful notebook to help creative folks get their never-ending awesome thoughts and ideas out on paper. We believe that there are millions of brilliant people of all kinds out there: developers, designers, artists, engineers, creators, and thinkers. 

As creatives, we know that there's a certain freedom and satisfaction in taking pen to paper in order to express the thoughts that we have. And while there are tons of notebooks of all shapes, colors and sizes out there, none of them truly embodied the characteristics we found important. None of them were truly good enough.

So naturally, we've decided to create one.

A notebook that is as interesting and unique as it is useful and convenient. A notebook that we’ll be excited to write or draw in whether we’re at home, at the park or board meeting. Exited to carry it around and show off to our friends. Notebook that's built to last. Built to be kept. Built to be cherished, so one day we can take it off the shelf and flip through it with our grandchildren.

We've carefully considered every detail in order to create a great tool for exploration. SLICE was specifically designed to be truly unique while offering a great set of useful features without going overboard - the paper is thick and durable, the pages are sewn with quality thread instead of being glued and it’s constructed in a way that allows it to lie perfectly flat, no matter what, no matter where and no matter what page you're on.

We started designing over a year ago and from the very beginning we've tried to define and redefine what a notebook really is. We came to the conclusion that a notebook is a tool and as a tool, usability is paramount. 

Using this understanding as a guide we’ve attempted to design a notebook that is compact, convenient and comfortable to use all day, every day, no matter where you are. Notebook that encourages creativity by making writing process easier, more enjoyable and more exciting. 

We’ve attempted to change everything while changing nothing.

During the course of this year we had dozens of conversations with artists, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, illustrators, and other thinkers around the world. All the hours of research, testing, and discussion have helped us distill the qualities that make a tool sophisticated enough to help the creative process and simple enough so that it doesn’t get in your way.

Armed with understanding that beauty is as important as functionality, we’ve concentrated on convenience and quality and removed all the noise. We have undergone a lengthy process of trials and prototyping to arrive at the highest level of quality and aesthetic performance. 

At 7" x 7” when open, SLICE is portable enough to take it anywhere, yet spacious enough to fit everything you need. Designed to be portable, it will fit perfectly in any pocket of any bag, backpack or purse.

After going through hundreds of paper, cover and binding options and numerous and numerous prototypes, SLICE evolved into what it is today and is as perfect as we wanted it to be. It is ready for mass production and we’re excited to share it with you.

There are no gimmicks, no unnecessary parts - just few intelligent improvements to a simple, yet awesome and timeless tool.

We have innovated an invention that is as old as inventions can be and changed everything while changing nothing.

 

 

 

If you know someone who loves writing, drawing and note taking, chance are they don't have anything like SLICE and therefore they will love it. 

We have more than enough time to have it made and delivered in time for you to give most thoughtful and unique gift this Holiday Season.

We know that you, our backers make or break the projects. Thus, we ask for your support to not only pledge, but to spread the word to as many people as you can. 

Even if SLICE is not for you, you most likely know someone who’ll love it - a creator and thinker who loves notebooks, writing, drawing, journaling…

Risks and challenges

We have been working with printers for months to get the best materials, craftsmanship and most timely shipping methods possible. We've printed a small test run which came out perfect. We have great suppliers and manufacturers lined up and ready to go who we're confident will deliver ecceptional product.

We want you (or your recipient) to have SLICE to start 2018 on the right track and we have more than enough time to have it made and delivered in time for the Holiday Season.
