Over the week I’ve seen so many photos of this new line from Michael’s – featuring none other than a $15 version of a traveler’s notebook cover. The one biggest barrier to committing to a “TN” system is the cost of a quality cover, so I ventured out to see if this is the beginner cover for you.
Here is the Katch.me replay of my Periscope broadcast where you can see the comments streaming in from viewers, or the YouTube version where I’ve clipped chat side-comments out.
No time to watch the video? Here are the highlights of my review.
On the left is the Recollections notebook on top of my Foxy Fix Wide cover – you can see that it’s just a touch narrower than the Foxy. You can’t quite see that it is shorter.
I typically use a “Cahier” sized insert which is usually deemed A5 or large (8 inches by 5 inches). Two of these fit comfortably inside with minimal overhang.
Lastly you can see how my A5 Rhodia notebook definitely doesn’t fit inside!
I put 2 of my new May Designs notebooks inside and it felt pretty “full” – here’s a side view:
These inserts are 80 pages each, and you can see it kisses the edge of the cover. This is a great size to stay slim.
What did you think? Are you going to test one out?
