Field Notes


To a Tee: Win Threadless Field Notes!

January 29th, 2010 by Bryan Bedell


If you’re a FIELD NOTES spotter/completist (and we know there are some of you out there) you may be horrified to learn that we’ve been supplying customized FIELD NOTES to various friends and other cool people for the past couple years. Your complete collection is NOT complete (in fact, neither is ours, we can’t find a copy of the fourth printing ANYWHERE).

Generally, we don’t make a big deal about it, but one of our recent printings is too cool not to mention, and a handful of them are available to the public through a contest this weekend.

Surely you’re familiar with Threadless, the t-shirt empire? They asked us to make them some custom FIELD NOTES 3-Packs featuring one standard French Dur-o-Tone “Packing Brown Wrap,” one Pop-Tone “Berrylicious,” and one Pop-Tone “Sour Apple.” The best part is the paper inside, which features a t-shirt with a graph overlay.

You want these. You need them, right? Well, we printed up a bunch, and we’re not sure what they’re going to do with most of them, but they’re giving away ten on a flickr contest that’s running all weekend. So hurry up and enter, and if you don’t win, you know to keep an eye on Threadless, maybe they’ll let a few more out into the wild soon.

We’ve done a couple other particularly awesome custom versions lately, and there are a few more about to go to press, so hopefully we’ll be able to tell you about those soon. Oh, by the way, do you follow us on Twitter?
