What's the Plan?
8. Journals are Planners
We know, we know. We just blew your mind. A journal with a calendar in the front or back is a planner, and it offers a user more room for notes. Martichoux explained why this is true (and increasingly popular). “We feel that whenever clients ask for a planner, they increasingly mean blank journal, so we are usually able to sell them a non-dated solution that is more modern,” he said. “They usually are happy with a journal or notebook that includes some dated reference such as a two-year calendar insert at the beginning or end of the journal. The rest of the journal is a blank space for their note taking, sketches, etc.”
9. USA-made and Eco-friendly Paper Products Exist
“House of Doolittle produces all of its products in the USA,” Peters said. The company not only sources locally, but also ecologically. “We print on paper with 100 percent post-consumer content [and that is] 100 percent recycled and FSC-certified.” The company’s commitment to sustainable products is so high that even the wire binding on planners is made of 90 percent recycled wire.
