      It's funny, I just looked and saw that I received my notebooks almost a year ago today. It's been awhile and would like to eventually order more. Would there be a timetable on when you guys are finishing up all the Kickstarter rewards? Any kind of update would be great.

    2. Creator Michael Tran on July 23, 2014

      Love my notebooks. Thought I would just tell you guys that you are awesome and despite the long wait, they are still super awesome.

      Valentine's day?? Update please.

      John And Shaun, An update is in order

    6. Creator Jeffery Ess on November 11, 2013

      Hey guys, looking for an update on $100 pledges. I think we've all been patient. I greatly understand the volume of work your pumping, not-to-mention the volume of hand work in fulfillment. But, an update would be fabulous.

      Thank you.

    7. Creator Michael Tran on November 6, 2013

      I've backed a great number of projects, yet I am most excited for this one. Wooooohoooo. Hopefully I"ll be getting mine within the week.

      If you continue to run your business without customer communication, your business is going to fail.

      Again, it's time for an update. I usually sent private messages and have yet to get a response, so this one is public.

      You have to communicate with your backers. Even if the communication is to say your are behind. Any communication is better than no communication.

      As with private messages, I doubt you will read this either, but on the off chance you do, please provide an update.

    9. Creator Tom Dukes on October 19, 2013

      Please provide an update on the $75 level. Thanks!

    10. Creator Anthony Armendariz on October 17, 2013

      We haven't received our $25 pledge package yet. Have those been sent out already as well? :(

    11. Creator Peter Squicciarini on October 16, 2013

      Any ETA on the $75 pledges?? This is taking a reeeeeeally long time.

    12. Creator Dan Wynick on October 15, 2013

      Any idea when the $75 packages will be sent out??

    13. Creator Jeffery Ess on October 2, 2013

      I have not received my notebooks yet. Any idea on an ETA?


    14. Creator Katharine T Cannon-Eger on September 14, 2013

      Thanks for the happy news AND the photo of the twins. Guess we will see that box when we get back from our garden travels and son Bill's wedding.
      Much love to the family,
      Antique and Uncle Bill

      Just received my 50 dollar pledge of notebooks yesterday and it was worth the wait. I wasn't expecting the beige coloring of the pages but it's different than any other notebook I have. I was concerned about the recycled paper but it's great since it holds up to most inks, including fountain pens, without much bleeding or feathering. I would have preferred a heavier stock of paper but this paper holds up very well.

      The regular orange covers are nice and sturdy but I wish I would have backed the buckram cover notebooks as well. My favorite notebook is the small #2 notebook that's a perfect size for your pocket and would be even better with a buckram cover. Everything was packaged great and held securely in place, even the poster. Thanks for a great project and looking forward to purchasing more in the future.

    16. Creator John Bell & Shaun Fox on August 14, 2013

      Hi Backers! Sorry for the brief silence. We've just sent out a new update, so check your inboxes! Thanks again for backing and for your patience!

    33. Creator Jill Bartholf on April 1, 2013

      When are you planning on shipping the notebooks?

    34. Creator William Muscato on March 27, 2013

      These notebooks are a birthday present for my daughter turning 11 on May 17th. I hope they arrive in time.

    35. Creator Lucas Yelowitz on March 8, 2013

      What happened to the Buckram notebooks??

    36. Creator Samuel W Pate on March 7, 2013


      I change my poster choice to the orange one. I will also pick-up my stuff from you. No need to send it.


    37. Creator Sara Krainik on March 5, 2013

      I would be happy to give an additional $5 for shipping like you requested, but I couldn't find anyway to do this!

    38. Creator lori bev on February 18, 2013

      Ok, the verbage..the video...all sorts of opportunity, and so well done. I have sent it onto chicago friends; and other buddies..
      Extremely well done. Obviously you can see by your pledge amount.

    39. Creator Samuel W Pate on February 18, 2013

      John: Hey slick dude. I might want some of the No.8 size too. Thanks........Sam

    40. Creator Lucas Yelowitz on February 16, 2013

    45. Creator Heather Holland on January 24, 2013


    46. Creator Neal Singh on January 17, 2013

      You should have said "Wage" War on Mediocrity for the poster.

    47. Creator Neal Singh on January 15, 2013

      How much should I back and what level should I back if I want a poster and a No.6 Notebook?

    48. Creator Brian Draghi on January 15, 2013

      Sweet, I'm addicted to notebooks as much as I am pens. Any idea on the weight and quality of the paper being used for these notebooks? Interested to know if there is any potential bleed-through on the pages using a Sharpie or fountain pen. Thanks.

    49. Creator Richard Cole on January 14, 2013

      Cool stuff. Who shot your video? I'm doing a projects soon and would love to get in touch with them.

      Much love from the East Side,
