The FIELD NOTES 42nd seasonal release for Spring is the “Mile Marker” Edition, which celebrates the span and history of America’s Dwight D. Eisenhower System of Interstate and Defense Highways.
The bright, beefy covers are made from Westrock Tango 12pt C1S and covered with Pantone Toyo inks as specified by the awesome US DOT Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. They’ve also been stamped with holographic Crown Foil so they’re easy to spot in the beams of your headlights. They’re bound with black and white staples, with innards featuring a “Horizon Mist Gray” Dot-Graph pattern on 60#T Domtar Lynx. They’re perfect for laying out routes, recording mileage, and noting the various roadside attractions and oddities you’ve spotted along the way.
With a bold, simple iconic design, this 3-Pack of Memo Books gets right to the heart of Field Notes. Practical American design with a sense of history and familiarity is what we’re all about. “Mile Marker” is a limited edition and when they’re gone, they’re gone forever. But FIELD NOTES didn’t put the brakes on there. Of course they didn’t.
Field Notes Brand is a collection of smartly-designed, vintage-styled pocket notebooks, calendars, and various office accoutrements. Co-founder and graphic designer, Aaron Draplin is a Michigan native who, from time to time, speaks highly of the Upper Peninsula.
"I grew up near and in Traverse City, with trips up to Houghton/Hancock every couple years. The lore of the Upper Peninsula was always there—an exciting frontier quality, with craggy rocks, steep streets and mysterious woods as far as the eye could see. Forty years later, I still feel it when I visit. One of America's great secrets! Having our Field Notes at UP Supply makes me so proud. We're doing our part to help outfit the wild rascals of the U.P.! Hell yeah." – Aaron Draplin, founder of Field Notes
