Although many of my friends prefer to stay organized through their digital devices these days, I'm still partial to a good notebook. Something tactile in my hands holds weight and substance. I can write down quick ideas, websites to check out, things to do. And now that there are notebooks as handsome as these, my love for paper and pen can only grow from here...

Graphic Designer, Suann Song of Washington DC, noticed a need for quality desk accessories made here in the United States. Her line of desktop products, Appointed, began as a Kickstarter campaign in March of this year. It's safe to say, the campaign was a quick success. 

Suann's signature notebook is made with the highest quality materials, including a water resistant bookcloth cover, brass coil, recycled paper and preforated sheets that are either blank, lined or grid ruled. Plus, for a nice added touch, notebooks may be monogrammed as well. 

When I produce in the field, I always have a jotter in my back pocket. I think I'll be ordering a few of these mini linen beauties to have on hand...

Suann has expanded her wares to include well made and refined desktop accessories like a minimalist brass mechanical pencil, a heavy weight brass pencil cup and ruler. Practical should be beautiful too. 

And I'm so happy to see Suann teamed up with my friend, Matt Weaver of Andover Trask, who created these natural waxed canvas pencil pouches with brass hardware. At 9" x 6.5", these pouches are large enough to hold Suann's workbook as well. Available in natural or charcoal. (small pouches available too) Classic perfection.
