The Everlast Notebook

$1,823,227

28,138

The Everlast notebook provides a classic pen and paper experience, yet is built for the digital age. Although it feels like a traditional notebook, the Everlast is endlessly reusable and connected to all of your favorite cloud services. 

When you write using any pen from the Pilot Frixion line, your writing sticks to Everlast pages like regular paper. But add a drop of water… and the notebook erases like magic.

The Everlast notebook is compatible with the Rocketbook app. That means before your notes go off the page they go online to destinations like Google Drive, Dropbox, and Evernote — perfectly organized.

 

 

 

 

 

Prior to shipping, we will send you a survey, so you can select which size(s) you want. Feel free to mix and match if you purchase multiple Everlast notebooks.

 

            

Note: There is a typo in the 5+ reward where we reference Waves (not Everlasts). It should read "US and Canada backers add $30 for each additional Everlast. International add $36. (additional Everlast prices include the extra shipping)"

 

 The Everlast is not a whiteboard book.

You can use any pen from the Pilot Frixion line. Frixion gel ballpoint pens come in all different kinds and colors and are available for purchase online and in stores.

We worked closely with paper industry experts to find the optimal synthetic polyester blend to create pages that could be wiped clean of Frixion ink, but also felt perfectly natural to write on. Writing on an Everlast page feels just like writing on regular paper with a smooth finish.

The pages do not have a weird high gloss. And, the writing doesn’t just wipe away.

Here is where things get crazy. When you combine Frixion pens with the Everlast pages a dry paper towel doesn’t do a thing. But a moist paper towel removes every bit of ink. So you can reuse your notebook over and over again.

 

 

 

MACHINE VISION 

The Rocketbook System is the combination of a special notebook and a free mobile app. Write notes and create designs in your notebook with a pen. Then, using patent-pending image capture technology, the Rocketbook app accurately and quickly captures and sends your notes to pre-configured cloud services.

SEVEN SYMBOLS 

The seven symbols at the bottom of each page are the magic “buttons” behind the Rocketbook’s quick and easy cloud organization. You assign each icon to the destination of your choice, any folder inside Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, Box, Slack or your email address. When you mark that icon on your page, the Rocketbook app automatically files your notes in the right place.

IMAGE PROCESSING 

In an instant, the Rocketbook app crops and enhances each page so your digital notes are more crisp and vibrant than the real thing.

INTELLIGENT PAGES 

Each page of your Rocketbook Everlast contains a special QR code which tells the Rocketbook app the page number of each scan. That means no matter how or when you scan your Everlast, we can always get your notes in the right order. Each page also has a narrow dark border surrounding it. The border allows the Rocketbook app to find your page quickly in any environment or background, like a messy desk.

DOT GRID+ 

The pages all feature a unique dot grid pattern that is perfect for both text notes, sketches and diagrams. NO NOTEBOOK? NO PROBLEM. 

Forgot your book or just want to take a test drive? We offer free PDF downloads of Rocketbook pages with our special border. Give it a try today!

SMUDGE FREE ZONE

Frixion pen ink completely dries and bonds to the page in about 15 seconds. After that, you’re writing doesn’t budge without moisture. You can flip the page before that, but there may be some slight transfer of the ink. Frixion markers are great for adding a dash of color but they can transfer a small amount of ink to the opposite page.

MAXIMIZE EVERLASTICITY 

ONLY USE PILOT FRIXION PENS. Although there are other inks that work, the entire Frixion pen line is the most accessible and they erase perfectly. Plus, they are just excellent pens. If you leave the ink on a page for a really long time (like months), it may leave a faint ghost behind, so it's a good idea to erase every few weeks to keep your book in perfect condition.

CUSTOMS & DUTIES INFORMATION - FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

We cannot mark as gift, this is illegal so we will not be able to do this.

As many of you know, our terms of sale are CIF destination. This means that we pay all freight, but none of the duties or taxes. As we are shipping these products all over the world, it is impossible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and GST tax for each location through Kickstarter.

Check out this handy tool, that can assist you in calculating duties. Remember to convert the US dollars to your local currency:

Risks and challenges

We have crowdfunded notebooks before and feel we have reduced our risks ahead of time by:
1) 16 months of R&D to determine the ideal synthetic paper and coating formulation for ideal writing experience and greatest durability
2) Creating and socializing prototypes
3) Determining raw material providers
4) Finalize all quotes for our first production run funded by this Kickstarter campaign
5) We are already set up with a fulfillment provider who will handle the packing and shipping of rewards and who ships our other products every day.

This is our third crowdfunding campaign, and experience is everything. We delivered on our first campaign late, which was painful experience, but we learned a ton. So then, when we launched a second campaign, our planning and conservative estimates paid off and we delivered 4 months early. It was amazing to exceed our backers expectations and that is our goal again for this campaign.

With that said, like with any project, there is risk in bringing a new product into the world. It is possible that our reliance on supplier and manufacturing vendors could result in unforeseen delays.

FAQ

  • The Rocketbook Wave is available on GetRocketbook.com. Rocketbook Everlast is available on this Kickstarter campaign.

    The Rocketbook Wave can is not endlessly reusable (reusing 5-20 times is realistic). The Rocketbook Everlast is endlessly reusable (reusing over 1000 times is realistic).

    Both the Rocketbook Wave and Rocketbook Everlast work with Pilot FriXion pens.

    The Rocketbook Wave can be reused by heating in your microwave oven. The Rocketbook Everlast can be reused by wiping the page clean with a moist towel. Don't put the Everlast in the microwave.

    The binding and the cover of the Everlast are more durable since it's design isn't constrained to microwavable materials.

    The Rocketbook Wave pages are a cellulose formulation. The Rocketbook Everlast pages are made of a waterproof synthetic poly blend.

    Last updated:
  • Erase your Everlast by applying moisture and wiping it off.

    The Rocketbook Wave (available at GetRocketbook.com) is designed to be microwave safe, so you can erase the whole notebook with heat in the microwave (or use a strong hairdryer, page by page)

    When you reuse the Rocketbook Wave, slight residue from clear ink remains on the page, so it's not endlessly reusable like the Everlast is. We customers who tell us that they use the Rocketbook Wave over 20 times but we say it's good for 5 uses to set expectations modest.

    The Rocketbook Everlast is really an endlessly reusable Rocketbook.

    Last updated:
  • We tested ink on left on the page for 3 months, 2 months, 1 month, 3 weeks, 2 weeks, 1 week. When ink was left on the page for 2 months or more, the writing left behind a very subtle ghosting. You really have to be in good light and look very closely to notice it. It doesn't interfere with writing over it, future reusability, or scanning.

    After ink is left on the page for 1 month or less, erasing was perfect and the page was pristine.

    Last updated:
  • The Everlast pages are a sythnetic poly blend that are impervious to water.

    Last updated:
  • Dry ink cures great to the page and won't wipe off the page. Introduce some water (a moist towel is recommended), and it will wipe off easily and perfectly.

    Last updated:
  • Your Rocketbook Everlast comes with one FriXion pen and we offer add-ons of 3 packs for convenience. But you don't need to buy replacements from us. FriXion pens are made by Pilot and are available in many stores, like Staples, Walmart, Target, and Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/2eNPYCs)

    Last updated:
  • If your hand tends to drag across your words as you write, then the Everlast is not for you. When writing with FriXion gel inks on the Everlast, it takes 10+ seconds for the ink to dry and be resistant to smudging.

    Also, if you don't like the coil on the left side of your book, then the Everlast might not be a good fit (yet). In the future we may provide steno-style books that are bound at the top, but at this time we haven't committed to doing so.

    Last updated:
  • Absolutely. You can use the eraser on the Frixion pen to erase writing as you go.
