To make a long story short. When Aaron Draplin made the very first Field Notes by hand, as a holiday gift for friends, they looked pretty much like these. When we started the company we had only one product, a 3-Pack of Kraft Memo Books with graph paper insides. And we expect, we’ll always have those as the heart of our product line.
The original 48-page memo books, available in three variations, Graph, Ruled, or Plain, as well as a Mixed 3-Pack that includes one of each type. Each Original Kraft memo book measures 3-1/2" wide by 5-1/2" tall and is bound by a rugged three-staple saddle-stitch process.
BTW: Our Kraft memo books can be customized with you logo, signature, avatar or chop on the back. Details here.
