Pancake & Franks Box Sets

Despite the trend of emailing/social networking/texting a ‘happy birthday’ or ‘get well’, nothing really beats an actual handwritten card. When did you last handwrite a note on a card? If it’s been sometime in the past 3 months, well done. If not, time to remedy the situation with a box of cards to fit every event. If you’ve got several cards on hand, you can quickly whip out the right one, jot down your message, stick it in an envelope and you’re done. No trips to the local stationery supplier necessary. I like the look of Pancake & Franks offerings, especially as they’ve three different sets from which to choose.

Utility Card

I love this. The Utility Card from grain works for all occasions- just circle the right words within the puzzle. A cheat sheet is included if you need a little help. Also, just so you know, the card is made with a tree-free paper that uses cotton fiber waste from the textile manufacturing industry.

SmartGrid™ Adhesive Notes

Post-Its are oh-so-convenient, as you might know, and for those of us that find them integral to our work habits, let’s take a moment to appreciate this grid version. I can’t think of all the ways these would come in handy, but I know I would use the heck out of them. Perhaps one could graph a few quadratic functions (as one does, often), sketch out a simple organizational chart, or just make the grocery list neat and tidy.

Penguin Mini Notebooks

Sadly, the Penguin merchandise seems to be heading in the same direction of Pantone: oversaturation. However, if you can get beyond the fact that there’s way too many products to choose from, there’s quite a few gems. Many items would be excellent gifts, of course, separately or grouped together. There also looks to be Penguin deckchairs and tea towels, though no retailer seems to have any in stock (shoot).

Leuchtturm Peka Springback Binder

If you care about presentation, or just simply the way papers or collections are kept, you’ll probably nerd out a little with me about this binder. Originating around 1917 from the KABE Verlag (KABE publication) company, the Springback binder was intended to instantly bind documents into a book, singly or in batches. A hidden binding can be opened and closed to rearrange or add contents, making it functional as a regular binder yet more secure as with a book cover. Keep in mind that the spine of the binder is rather large to accommodate the function, but I’d say that’s a small price to pay for such a finished look.

Revive the polaroid (and postcards) with these Polaposts. You simply insert your regular photos inside the white bordered sleeve, seal it, slap on a stamp (and a message on the writable backside, if you wish) and stick it in the mail. The recipient of your photo will be pleased, I’m sure.

Perforated Bookmark Paper

Each of these eight bookspines can act as a bookmark; the set is perforated so you can pull them apart as needed. Talk about a great add-on gift for the readers in your world. Also, you must check out these money clips, and when I say must, I mean it: Bacon, Cheddar, and Bones.

Spaces for Ideas Expandable Sketchbook

If you have to put pen to paper to sketch out your ideas, then take a look at this expandable sketchbook. While the book measures a smaller A6 size (14.8cm high and 12.5cm wide with spine), each of its 5 pages expands into a larger A3 size. Not a bad size for something that fits easily into your bag. Also, for Design Sojourn’s 1st Birthday, they are offering free shipping for any amount of sketchbooks you purchase. (Birthday sale is over.)
