Minbøk notebook | Versatile, lightweight & elegant

CA$ 27,180

405

The Minbøk advantage is in its unique U-shaped binding, which makes it possible for you to not only rearrange the contents of your notebook but also to maintain the simple aesthetic look of a traditional notebook. You get all the versatility of a binder without any of the excess weight or bulk!

Whether you’re looking for an elegant tool to organise your notes or a convenient way to keep track of your thoughts on the go, Minbøk is the right choice for you.

180˚: Smooth writing experience

The notebook lays completely flat, and the small rings won’t interfere with your handwriting regardless of the hand that’s dominant for you.

 360˚ + Hard cover: Note-taking is easy anywhere, anytime

Fold the front cover all the way back to save space and take on-the-go notes, standing or sitting down.

Personalise entirely your notebook 

Create endless combinations out of a single notebook! You can combine the weekly planner with the lined layout to plan your schedule while you jot down your to-do lists. You can also combine the blank, dotted, and grid layout to capture all your spur-of-the-moment ideas as they pop up.

Choose between large and extra-large sizes

Plus, smaller pages fit alongside larger ones, so you are never stuck with any one choice.

Large: 6.1 x 8.6 in (156 x 219 mm) / About half of a Letter-size paper

Extra-large: 8.9 x 11.4 in (225 x 290 mm) / About a Letter-size paper

Other key features

Functional, yet beautiful

Minbøk’s binding is engineered with a unique «U» shape so that the notebook can completely cover the binding and keep the sheets straight, giving the Minbøk notebook an elegant aesthetic — unlike other discbound notebooks.

Refillable system 

Minbøk notebook is made from durable materials, so you don’t need to buy another one. Just add refills!

After the campaign, you will be able to refill your notebook without any effort at all. We are going to make this as simple as it can be – that’s a promise!

Each layout is printed with light grey ink that will not drown out your handwriting.

Backing this project is simple; just follow these three steps!

Each large notebook contains a variety of 100 pages (40 lined, 40 blank and 20 grid) and each extra-large notebook contains 100 lined pages.

Refill options

Due to the large amount of options, we have already paired refills in Bundles for this campaign. We are also offering limited options for the extra-large notebook. Each Bundle includes two different refills and each refill contains 100 pages.

Large refill options: Bundle A, B, C or D

Extra-large refill options: Bundle A or B only

Colour options

Due to the large amount of options, we are offering the extra-large notebook in one colour only for this campaign.

Large notebook: available in Burgundy, Gray, Blue or Black

Extra-large notebook: available in Black only

                        

Once the Kickstarter campaign is over, you will also be able to buy add-ons in addition to your initial reward through the Backerkit platform.

PDF GUIDE MINBØK + MINIMAL.PLAN

To help you use the large notebook to its full potential, we’ve partnered with Claire, the creator and blogger of Minimal.Plan to design a guide to draw columns and rows. This guide is a reference table that shows exactly where to add lines if you want to split your notebook pages into equal sections. This comes in handy when you are creating your own layouts.

The guide also provides 5 examples of layouts to help you stay organised: a budget tracker, a project action plan, a 6-month plan, a monthly calendar, and an explanation of the Cornell notes method.

Each reward includes the digital version of the guide! You can print and insert it in your Minbøk notebook so that you always have it on hand.

By participating in this Kickstarter campaign, you will support the initial production of Minbøk notebooks. There is a minimum order quantity we need to hit in order to make this happen and start building Minbøk as a brand. In exchange for your support, we are excited to send one of the first run of Minbøk notebooks to you, prior to making them available in retail and online stores.

Our long-term goal is to turn Minbøk into a brand trusted globally for quality and design. We are already planning an item for archiving old sheets and designing new layouts. At the end of the campaign, we intend to survey our contributors to see what they want most (music sheets, isometric, etc.).

All backer support is sincerely appreciated!

We’ve already launched the production of Minbøk’s binding mould in order to cut down on production time by five weeks.

Risks and challenges

Production: We will be dealing with experienced manufacturers in the notebook industry, working closely with trusted partners to ensure smooth delivery. Despite our planning, there are situations that could arise over which we have no real control. If there are any blips along the way, we'll be sure to keep you updated.

Fulfilment & Shipping: This final step will be our greatest challenge due to the degree of customisation of each reward (colours, sizes, bundles and monograms). We chose established companies (like Backerkit) to ensure the every reward is respected and sent out on time.

Please remember that some countries have slower customs than others. Also, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.

Thank you for your support!
