Baron Fig Raspberry Honey

Baron Fig Raspberry Honey Box

Its time to take a look at yet another of the Baron Fig limited edition releases, this time its a new version of their Confidant journal,the Raspberry Honey.  The art work on the box that you see above is pretty awesome, and it comes with a story book which I’ll show you a little later. Thanks to our friends at Baron Fig for sharing this new limited edition version with us to share with you.  You can check it out here at the Baron Fig website.

Baron Fig Raspberry Honey Front Cover 2

The cover of the Baron Fig Raspberry Honey has a dark red tactile feeling bookcloth cover with  honeybees embossed into it.  The color reminds me more of a cranberry color than the truer red of a raspberry, but either way, it a very nice shade of red that really jumps out with the embossed honeybees.

Baron Fig Raspberry Honey Cover Close Up

If you take a closer look you can really see the details of the honeybees on the Baron Fig Raspberry Honey cover.  The covers on the Baron Fig Confidant Journals usually have a pretty nice feel to them just because of the bookcloth covers.  Its possible that I’m just easily impressed, but it surprised me how much detail can go into the honeybees on the Baron Fig Raspberry Honey covers if you look closely at them.

Baron Fig Raspberry Honey Inside Cover

For whatever reason, I really love the artwork on the box and inside cover of the Baron Fig Raspberry Honey edition, so luckily its found on the front and back inside covers.  When it comes to something like a Moleskine or Rhodia journal, you can usually print something on the cover, but due to the tactile and porous finish of the bookcloth covers on the Baron Fig journals, its probably much harder to print patterns on the.  The positive is that its obviously not terribly difficult to print patterns or designs onto the inside covers.

Baron Fig Raspberry Honey Story Book Cover

So now the Baron Fig limited editions have something interesting going for them, and it reminds me a little of the surprises with Field Notes quarterly editions.  In this case they added a short story to the edition in the form of small 15 page booklet.

Baron Fig Raspberry Honey Story Book

The story and the illustrations have a very folksy feel to them and it was certainly a nice little surprise.  I think thats what makes subscribing to a quarterly release like this so much fun.  You never know what to expect, and even if its not something you may have been looking to purchase if you were buying these individually, the surprise factor must makes them really enjoyable.  Kudos to Baron Fig and the fun that they are creating with these quarterly releases, I cant wait to see whats in store for the next release.  If you want grab one of these great looking and unique journals for yourself, you can do so here at the Baron Fig website.

NoteTower Desktop Organizers for your Desk and Monitor

NoteTower Product Lineup

The folks responsible for the NoteTower product line were kind enough to send some samples of their whole lineup over for a review as well as an upcoming giveaway.  As with any supplied product, the standard disclaimer comes along with it that yes the product was free, but no the free product doesn’t change my mind about the usefulness and quality of the product.  With that out of the way, there are 4 distinct items in the NoteTower line that you see above.  Left to right you have the NoteTower Organizer, NoteTowerPro, and NoteTower Mini, with the NoteTower Monitor Mount in the foreground.  Obviously you can probably already tell just by looking at these what they do, but if you aren’t sure they basically help to hold papers  at your desktop so they are easily visible while you work.

NoteTower Organizer

The first in the NoteTower series that we will look at is the NoteTower Organizer (via Amazon).  This version measures 12″ tall and is 4.125″ wide by 3.25″ deep.  You can easily fill up the compartments with things ranging from the size of paperclips to pens, to note cards, to scissors. There are 6 tabs that span 5″ end to end vertically with a 1″ gap between each.  Each of these tabs can hold shorter more sturdy items like index cards, business cards, or even photos.  This version is also available in blue, pink, and white.

NoteTower Base Adhesive

Each size of the NoteTowers (excluding the Monitor Mount) have nano-suction pads to keep the unit affixed to your desk, but it can also be re-positioned many times over.  You can alternatively leave the protective coating on them and not worry about the unit being stuck in place.

NoteTower Pro Arms Out

The next up is my favorite of the four in this lineup and its the NoteTower Pro (via Amazon).  This version measures 10.5″ high and has a 3.25″ by 3.25″ footprint along with 8 tabs for holding your document or other smaller items.  As you can see, the NoteTower Pro has four arms that extend in order to keep a full size sheet of paper standing upright so you can read it as your typing or doing anything else at your desk.  It does a great job of keeping your paper positioned in an easy to view place.

 

NoteTower Pro Arms and Paper

There are 4 arms, two on each side that extend 6″ from the edge of the NoteTower Pro.  The arms easily fold back into the rear of the tower so they are out of the way when not in use.  In its maximum capacity you can have two full sheets of standard printer paper displayed for your convenience using the NoteTower Pro. The NoteTower Pro also has a slot designed to hold standard size 3″x3″ sticky note pads, and the unit comes with one pad included.

NoteTower Mini

Next is the NoteTower Mini is 8.25″ high and also has a 3.25″x 3.25″ base designed to hold standard sticky notes.  This unit also has 6 tabs that have a vertical span of 5″ with a 1″ gap between each.  Again, this unit can be used for things like business cards and photos, but full sheets of paper won’t work well because it does not have the expandable arms on the back.  Besides the black version shown here, its also available in white.  You can see the two color options over on the Amazon page here.

NoteTower Monitor Mount Laptop

The last version is the NoteTower Monitor Mount (via Amazon), which is great for laptops or standard computer monitors.  It measures 8.7″ tall and is 1.75″ wide but also has the extendable arms that give it the ability to hold a full size sheet of paper like the NoteTower Pro also does.  This version has 8 of the tabs to hold your documents, but they are spaced just slightly wider at 1.125″ instead of the 1″ found with the other versions. It attaches to the side of your monitor via a simple spring loaded clip that has some non-slip padding on the inside of the clips, and the spring in there isn’t so tight that you feel like it could crush your monitors, bezel which is nice.

NoteTower Monitor Mount Bracket

The NoteTower Monitor Mount also comes with the small plastic bracket that you see pictures above here.  This is helpful if you have a monitor that is either too wide for the clip, or that has too much of a curve for the clip to attach itself onto.  The mouth on the clip opens to a comfortable (non-stressed) width of just over 0.5″ so anything wider than that would probably require the use of the bracket shown above.

NoteTower Arms Out

Overall the NoteTower line of products definitely do a great job of helping keep your papers, documents, pictures or other flat items held in a place where they are easy to view and work with.  The NoteTower Pro (via Amazon) and the NoteTower Monitor Mount (via Amazon) are the only ones with extendable arms to hold full sheets of paper.  Everything that I used with these slid in and out of the clips easily without damaging them and nothing seemed to slip over time while left in there.  These can definitely make your life easier at your desk if you regularly find yourself wanting to look at a document while you type, or if you just need some help being better organized with some of the smaller items at your desk.

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker vs Fisher Space Pen Trekker

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker Package

My Fisher Trekker Space Pen has been a permanent fixture on my key chain for years now and I love it, but when I saw the new Fisher Space Pen Backpacker (via JetPens) I thought that maybe it might be time for an upgrade. If nothing else I just liked the visual of the blue with black accents, so into my cart it went, without much worry knowing how much I loved my other one.

Fisher Space Pen Comparison

My only real concern when I purchased my new Fisher Space Pen Backpacker was that the length might be longer than the Fisher Trekker Space Pen that I’ve been hauling around.  With that said, I was relieved to see that when it arrived the size looked VERY similar. The reality is that if you stand these two pens side by side, the Fisher Space Pen Backpacker is slightly longer, but so slight that I don’t even have a good way to measure.  According to the Fisher Space Pen website, the Backpacker measures 3.92″ and the Fisher Trekker measures 3.875″ meaning that the Backpacker is 0.045″ longer.  These measurements are as pictured above, with the pens closed and how you would keep them on a key chain or elsewhere.

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker and Trekker Comparison Uncapped

There are two major differences between the Fisher Space Pen Backpacker and the Fisher Trekker Space Pen.  Fist is the size and functionality of the cap.  On the Backpacker, the cap is almost twice as long, which results in a more comfortable pen to hold and write with.  Its also worth noting that on the backpacker the cap also posts, unlike the Trekker.  Now if you keep this mounted to a key chain then you most likely aren’t going to be writing with the cap posted so it may be a moot point.  The other major difference is the grip.  On the Trekker its a blocky rubber grip while on the Backpacker its a smooth metal (the JetPens website says rubber but I disagree) surface with a curved shape to it.  The grip is also just a hair longer on the Backpacker too.

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker wtih Caribiner

If you do like to write with the cap posted and want to keep this on a key chain, you can do what I’ve done, which is to attach the pen to your key ring with these awesome little Nite Ize Key Rak S Biners (via Amazon) that come in handy for many uses.

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker and Trekker Cap Posted and Not

Here is a quick look at the Fisher Space Pen Backpacker with the cap posted.  In this mode, the Backpacker measures 5 and 7/16″ long. If you don’t include the key ring, the full tip to tip measurement is 6 and 1/16″.

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker Weight with Refill

When I pulled the Fisher Space Pen Backpacker out of the box, I immediately noticed that it felt like it weighed significantly less than the Trekker, so I had to break out the scale.  With the refill inserted in the pen, it weighs in at 5.21 oz.

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker Weight without Refill

With the refill inserted, the Fisher Space Pen Backpacker weighs only 0.395 oz.  Maybe I was onto something about it feeling so much lighter than the Fisher Trekker Space pen, so lets take a look and compare.

Fisher Space Pen Trekker Weight with Refill

So here is the weight of the Fisher Trekker Space Pen, and sure enough, at 0.710 oz, its 0.189 oz lighter than the Trekker when both have an ink cartridge inserted.  It might sound crazy, but that 0.189 oz is very noticeable when you pick them up, and if you are carrying this around every day its something to take into consideration.

Fisher Space Pen Trekker Weight without Refill

If you take out the refill, the Fisher Trekker Space Pen comes in at .601 oz as you can see above.  Probably not realistic that you would be carrying it around with no ink in it, but I wanted to share so there was a baseline and apples to apples comparison for each.

Fisher Space Pen Backpacker NASA

Everyone probably has had their own experiences with the durability and great writing experience with the Fisher Space Pen, so if you like them, this new Backpacker version is definitely worth it if you are looking for a key chain, back pack, or purse option.  I’m curious to see how it holds up to a few years of being banged around in my pocket with my car keys and every day use.  The Trekker held up well, but took a couple dents and scratches as you can see, so I’ll have to revisit this pen sometime in…2020?  I would highly recommend grabbing a Fisher Space Pen Backpacker (via JetPens) but the only problem is they seem to be sold out in every color right now, but don’t fret, JetPens has a link on each one where you can sign up to be emailed as soon as they are back in stock.  Thanks to JetPens for sponsoring the blog here, and for providing this pen for review as part of their sponsorship.  Obviously the sponsorship has no impact on my providing my honest feelings about the pen so far.

Baron Fig Nomad Sticky Notes

Baron Fig Nomad Sticky Notes Front Package

I’ve been on a bit of a kick with Baron Fig products lately because they are great at sharing new products with all of the stationery bloggers to get the word out.  One thing that I somehow missed though are these Baron Fig Nomad Sticky Notes (via Baron Fig) so I purchased a set recently to get a better look.

Baron Fig Nomad Sticky Notes Back Package

As you can see from the back of the Baron Fig Nomad Sticky note package therea are a few key details to be aware of with these:

  • They measure 3″ x 3″ square
  • Each pad has 70 sheets
  • Each pack has 3 pads
  • Format is Dot Grid
  • 210 total sheets per package
  • Rounded corners

Baron Fig Nomad Sticky Notes Dot Grid

A close up of the pads show that each one has a light grey dot grid pattern on the surface of the egg shell toned sheets of sticky notes.  Personally this format has always been a mystery for me and I haven’t conquered writing on or using the dot grid for anything.  I say this because on this even smaller format I’m even more at a loss of how to best use them.  Some folks love the format though so I’m not knocking it, just that its not ideal for me.

I do love the rounded corners on these because so many sticky notes have squared corners which tend to get banged up and snagged on things fairly often.  Another positive note is that the re-sticky factor on these is pretty strong.  I was able to apply and remove one sticky note 50 times with seemingly little loss of adhesive capabilities.  This is all assuming you do it on a fairly clean and flat surface though so your mileage may vary.

Baron Fig Nomad Sticky Notes Writing Sample

In my writing sample above on the Baron Fig Nomad Sticky Notes, you can see that I struggle to keep my writing in a straight line.  You will be best served to stick with ballpoint pens, gel ink, and pencil as fountain pens and anything with a more liquid or really wet ink did bleed through to the next sheet in some occasions.  You can check them out over on the Baron Fig website if you think this format will work for you.
