We are headed to NYC this weekend to be a part of the great curated menswear show Pop-Up Flea. It is open to the public and will have great brands showing and selling like Tanner Goods, Filson, The Hill-Side, and many more. Good company indeed. The show runs Friday through Sunday so if you are in NYC, come by, say hi, and “Get Handsome”.

Today marks the release of the innovative new Doxie Flip, a small portable scanner that’s perfect for scanning your receipts, photos, notebooks (NOTEBOOKS!), and other ephemera.
Since it’s battery-powered and cordless, you can scan anywhere. The lid is removable and the bottom is transparent, so you scan anything that’s relatively flat. Scanning is as easy as pushing the big green button on the side. Everything’s saved to an SD card, and can be easily copied to your computer when it’s convenient. Larger items can be scanned in sections and automatically ‘stitched’ back together. Even better, Doxie software allows you to scan a whole notebook, then ‘staple’ the pages back into a PDF ‘book’ to archive or share online. If you’ve got a big box full of completed FIELD NOTES, that’s probably sounding pretty sweet right now.
But it gets better… Order a Doxie Flip direct from Doxie and you’ll get a limited-edition FIELD NOTES pocket notebook, made in the U.S.A. with a French Paper Speckletone 80# Cream Cordtone cover (while supplies last). The “Cordtone” paper has a beautiful, deep texture and the inside pages are plain Finch 50# text.
We’ll post a complete walk-through soon, with a very special notebook a FIELD NOTES user just sent us as a gift.

Can we tell you more about the letterpress-printed coasters you’ll find in our “Drink Local” Ales and Lager 3-Packs? We didn’t clutter ‘em up with the usual paragraph of production notes, so we’ll share some details here:
FIELD NOTES fans know we’ve been working for years with the amazing Dan Barron at Flywheel Letterpress in Freeport, IL for years. He was all set to do the coasters, until his girlfriend got a teaching job a couple hours from Freeport. Dan had to pack up and move quickly, and decided to sell his printing business and all his equipment.

Speaking of FIELD NOTES’ unofficial appreciation society, the Field Nuts have been growing quickly in number, and recently unveiled a new and improved Facebook page, Twitter page, and web forum. They even have a spiffy new logo. We thank them all for all their support, love, enthusiasm, and evangelism.
We do remind you that if you need to contact us about anything at all, we’re here at fieldnotesbrand.com, emailable at email@example.com, on twitter at @fieldnotesbrand, or at our official Facebook page. We dig Field Nuts and lurk there occasionally but we’d need to hire additional staff to keep up with their flood of posts!

Most viewers noticed that the colors of surrounding objects (and the bar) change throughout the video to match the books, and a few commenters seemed to think we’d done it practically (“Practical” is what film people call special effects done with props and camera tricks, rather than in editing and post-production). We are big fans of practical effects, but this time, we went full-on Michael Bay (call us, Mike!) and utilized a healthy dose of FX magic (albeit still pretty subtle). Here’s the unedited original footage:

FIELD NOTES BOOKS’ first release, Kevin Guilfoile’s “A Drive into the Gap,” is a story about baseball, memory, baseball executive (and Kevin’s father) Bill Guilfoile, and Roberto Clemente’s 3000th hit-bat.
Kevin came across a great story featuring his dad and Mickey Mantle in Billy Crystal’s new memoir, “Still Foolin’ ‘Em”
“A Drive into the Gap” is still available in our shop.

Bryan joined Brad Dowdy and Myke Hurley on The Pen Addict podcast for a chat about the Field Notes creative and production processes. Paper geeks will dig that the guys also got into various printing techniques and paper stocks, and FN collectors too.

Our man Aaron gave the keynote at Creative South back in April, this new video recaps the event with a great chat (starting around 9:00) with Mr. Draplin. Futura? Careful typography? Function over form? Respect for the elders? It’s all there (including an epic mouse-thumb-war at 18:30).

Meet our new mailroom guy, Tyler, who replaced Skyler two weeks ago (coincidence, not surgery), then promptly left to marry Tayler (coincidence, not dissociative identity disorder) and took a week off (Skyler filled in!) But he’s back now, from his honeymoon in Zion (where he’s pictured above, dressed for a community theater production of the 1986 Savage Steve Holland film One Crazy Summer). So he’ll be around, packing and shipping your orders, and if you’re some sort of Slugworth type looking for a Field Notes mole, he’s probably a good person to talk to, because he seems nice and wide-eyed and trusting. Welcome to the crew, Tyler!

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!
