REink - A Personalized Notebook
REink is a stylish, personalized notebook that provides a reusable option for your note taking and creative needs.
REink is a personalized notebook that provides a reusable option for your note taking and creative needs. As busy professionals we found ourselves filling up a notebook every month with client notes, action items, scribbles, etc. and when filled - we would file put them on a shelf never to be opened again! After thinking about what a waste of trees this was, we set out to create viable options that eliminate paper wastage from traditional notebooks in an effort to reduce our need for paper based notebooks.
With our design background and strong ties to the print and manufacturing world, we developed a notebook that was stylish, could work for multiple uses such as sketching, note taking or for presentation purposes and our end product is REink - our dry erase notebook.
Product Description: 8.5"x11" with 25 blank and 25 lined pages. Each page is dry erase which can be continually used. The coil binding is made with durable plastic to ensure books do not come apart.
Personalize It! In a world of boring black notebooks where everyone in your school or office has the same one, stand out from the crowd, our notebook is customizable so you can put your name on the front cover.
Because the notebook can be used for multiple purposes, we have developed two options to choose from:
We have sourced dry erase markers that can be used on the notebook pages, without smudging. Pages can be erased and reused time and time again. Select your reward with or without these markers. The markers are readily available in most stationery stores, so replacements are no problem.
REink is the perfect solution for students, schools, artists, designers, or anyone. We envision our notebooks replacing paper products such as loose leaf, single use notebooks and sketchbooks, etc. so it's important to test our concept to see how many of you kickstarters out there think this is a great idea! We have lots of stylish product extension ideas if this is a successful project that we would love to bring to the marketplace.
In our promo video we tried to create the story behind why these notebooks are a great idea and have provided some stats on paper use. We hope this helps create awareness on paper and it's impact on landfills.
We need you to help prove our concept so we can launch our other great ideas and save the planet one tree at a time and we know you will enjoy your notebook as much as we do! Choose your reward today and help make an impact while launching a new product.
Risks and challenges
We have been testing our notebook for almost one year and we have no issues with reusing the pages. Our biggest hurdle was sourcing a local supplier to ensure we have more control and visibility on how our notebooks a being created. We are happy to say that we have now have successfully completed sourcing and testing our vendor and we see no challenges for distributing our notebooks within one month of project funding providing kickstarter backers submit the surveys back with the name(s) that will be used for personalization.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
