Field Notes Public Service Announcement:

Since we started our limited-edition, quarterly runs of COLORS memo books, we have tried to up the ante with each release. It’s going to be difficult to top what we’ve done over the last year, but we’re up for and eager for the challenge.

If you had signed up as a COLORS subscriber around this time a year ago, you would have received two 3-Packs of the states of your choosing from our County Fair edition, along with two 3-Packs of our original Graph Paper books (and a handful of goodies, per usual). That was followed up in the fall with two 3-Packs of the sinister, immensely popular, black-on-black Raven’s Wing edition, which sold out so quickly that individual orders were available for less than 24 hours. Come winter, we released Balsam Fir, and subscribers received two 3-Packs of the Olive memo books with white, high-gloss foil-stamped lettering, along with a gift envelope and gift card to mail one 3-Pack to a note-taking friend for the holidays. Most recently, subscribers found two packs of the Dry Transfer _______ Edition in their mailboxes. A fun nod to the glory days of graphic design, this edition comes with a sheet of rub-on alphabets so you can add your own title to the books.

In total over the last year, COLORS subscribers from have received 10 3-Packs of memo books, a special-edition calendar, lots of pens, pencils, buttons, bands of rubber, and all assortment of goodies in between, plus all shipping to anywhere as well as the piece of mind in knowing that their limited-edition COLORS books would arrive while they were immediately selling out for everyone else. Case in point: our latest, the Dry Transfer ________ Edition, is now sold out.

The only way to get the Dry Transfer _______ Edition now, and to be certain you don’t miss any of what we have cooked up for the next year (you’re going to flip for this summer’s), is through a new COLORS subscription. Whaddya say?
