Now offered in our Work collection are Letter Notes and Blueprint Notes, luxury paper goods handmade in Baltimore, MD by Almanac Industries.

Almanac is a husband & wife team focused on making handcrafted, quality goods using traditional methods, thoughtful design, and an attention to detail that can only be applied by hand. Their notepads are printed on an early 1900’s cast-iron letterpress using heavyweight, 100% recycled cotton paper. Each page is hand-fed one at a time into the press, then hand bound and tied with a soft cotton lace.

Almanac Industries Blueprint Notes Airplane

Blueprint Notes are fifteen-page notepads, each with an old-fashioned image of one of five different specifications: airplane, boat, lighthouse, knots, or waves. Depicting the technical side of classic gentlemen’s pastimes, each lends itself to a different sort of man, or at least a different side of him. The daring biplane pilot. The outdoorsy kayaker. The wise, wary ocean navigator. The knowledgeable knot-tying sailor. The smooth sunkissed surfer.

Letter Notes are also fifteen-page notepads, with a single capital letter pressed on each page in one of six patterns that rotate throughout the alphabet. These are a simple, classic alternative to bespoke stationery, with a touch of textile influence reminiscent of the traditional wardrobe. Choose the first letter of your first or surname to add a personal touch to your jotted professional memos, friendly hellos, or romantic sweet nothings.
