A Long Term Relationship

August 13th, 2014 by Jim Coudal

We release seasonal editions four times each year. A very few of them, like the County Fair and Expedition Editions, become regular parts of our line, but for the vast majority, once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. You can purchase a year-long Colors Subscription and receive two of each release, plus lots of extra goodies and subscriber exclusives for just $97. Subscribers shipments always go out first too.

In a rare moment of organization and planning, we actually know what the next three editions will be. Fall is on press and it’s going to be really fun. Winter is something people have been asking for, and Spring is, well, let’s just say it’s an really ambitious, and time-consuming, undertaking. You can start a subscription right now with the Arts and Sciences Edition (free metallic buttons!) We’ll ship that out right away with extras and then you’ll be all set through next April or thereabouts.

Check this film, in which we try to use science to measure the value of a subscription.

Each pack contains one “Arts” book with a wine-colored cover and alternating blank and ruled pages, and one “Sciences” book with a slate-colored cover and alternating blank and “engineer’s graph” pages. Both feature handy info regarding their particular fields of study. Find out more and order a 2-Pack or start your subscription now! It’s a limited edition and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

“Arts and Sciences,” Reviewed

Josh Ginter of The Newsprint wrote a thorough and well-illustrated review of our new Arts and Sciences edition (with bonus photos here).

“Despite the plethora of new, Arts and Sciences is a Field Notes book through and through.”

Thanks, Josh, glad you dig ‘em! Thanks also to Uncrate, Hypebeast, Well-Appointed Desk, Woodclinched, Unroyal Warrant, Chase McCoy, Acquire, Tools and Toys for all the shoutouts. 2-Packs of the 64-page larger-format “Arts and Sciences” are still available for a limited time, or subscribe to guarantee a year’s worth of our limited edition notebooks before they sell out.

Sort of a “Director’s Commentary” about all our Field Notes COLORS seasonal editions, just not as interesting. Bryan and I go through all the releases, by year, in a series of video recaps.

With the Grain

April 2nd, 2014 by Jim Coudal

In the past, we’ve seen people doing occasional modifications and customizations to their FIELD NOTES editions. In fact, we released an edition that was created to be 100% customized, The “Dry Transfer” Edition, from the Spring of 2011. Now, check this very cool mod to our new Shelterwoods.

“Here is a quick video I made showing how I apply an easy, fine-woodworking finish to protect and pop the natural beauty of the wood.” Andy Hullinger stained his Field Notes Shelterwood Editions. While we’re on the topic, thanks to Josh Ginter and Ed Jelly for their thoughtful reviews, and congrats to Brad and Myke on the 100th Episode of the always excellent Pen Addict Podcast.

Drink Up!

November 10th, 2013 by Jim Coudal

Usually our films are meandering meditations on something sorta related to the latest edition, but in knowing how well beer and commercials go hand in hand, here’s our first thirty-second, TV-ready spot.

Our 20th edition of FIELD NOTES COLORS notebooks, “Drink Local” is on sale now and going fast. This time it’s two different 3-Packs, “Ales” and “Lagers,” each featuring three different “soft-touch”-varnished colored books and a letterpress-printed coaster. And there’s a pretty great bonus for subscribers. Be sure to top up your pint quickly, “Last Call” always comes sooner than anyone expects.
