Each Balsam Fir 3-Pack of memo books features white, high-gloss, foil-stamped type on a 100# French Paper Company Speckletone Olive cover. The inside covers are printed in “Wet Bark Black” and the graph paper is lined in a sweet “Coniferous Green.” The hot-foil stamping is a new process for us.
Think of a heavy, fresh snow on the boughs of a proud Midwestern fir tree.
