Spring is here, and along with warmer weather comes the 18th limited edition FIELD NOTES COLORS notebooks. “America the Beautiful” features three full-color covers: “Spacious Skies,” “Amber Waves,” and “Mountain Majesty,” printed on meaty 15pt coated-one-side Tango cover stock with 1960s imprecision. Inside is Finch Fine “Soft White” paper ruled in “looseleaf blue.” Each pack includes a vibrant water-transfer decal. Read more about it, and see our new film here, then head to to stock up, while they last. Better yet, subscribe to COLORS and never miss an edition, or at least get on our mailing list (enter your email in the form to your left) so you can find out about stuff like this before anyone else!

Thanks to Lawrence Kids for a lovely shout-out on p28-29 of their Spring 2013 issue. They write “Our kids use them just as much as we do,” which is great, and certainly true on our end of the supply chain too.

We’ve been working hard to get our Field Notes into shops all over the world and sometimes we are lucky to meet people who “get” Field Notes and our philosophy immediately. We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with the great folks at Hightide to increase our presence in the Japanese market. Yuu from Hightide took the time to visit us at Field Notes Midwest HQ and we spent a nice afternoon chatting about how we could work together. We’re excited to be partnering with such a smart and influential brand. Onwards!

Our new(-ish) black carpenter’s pencils look as good with formal eveningwear as they do in your overall pocket. Just yesterday, Skyler was cleaning the back room and found a fairly large stack of FN/RC No.001 Carpenter Pencil Sharpening Reference Cards that shipped out way back with our “American Tradesman” COLORS edition. So for the first time in nearly two years, we’ll include hard-copy instructions with your carpenter pencil 3-pack, while they last.
