Less than two weeks ago, fellow blogger, AK, over at Notebook Loves Pen did a post on the new office supply brand, Poppin. Poppin has shown up in a few spots around the web including Facebook.
So after I read AK's post, I whipped off an email to Meredith Zenkel requesting one of their Write-Now notebooks and then promptly forgot about it.
Less than a week later this showed up on my doorstep:
Cute packaging, it made me smile, which is part of the marketing plan of Poppin which promises to change the way we work.
From their info on Facebook:
Here are some photos of that notebook.
The notebook has a softcover, red in this case and it has the required pocket in the back.
The inside cover has a spot for a title or project, your name and phone number and reward information.
The paper is nice, but a little thin for fountain pen users. I really like the layout, each page has a place for a heading, page number, date or any other notes you might want to add.
Now the ink test. The paper performed very well with all but the Carbon Black, which feathered a little.
However, there was some bleed through with the fountain pen inks and showthrough with all the pens except the ballpoint pen.
This is a very nice little notebook and since the majority of the world is not fountain pen users (yet), I am sure that it will be of use to many.
Now, there's bad news and good news. The good news is that 80% of the Poppin products will have price tags under $20 and their products come in great colors. The bad news is that you have to wait until June.
