holiday sale 2017 news

Welcome to our holiday sale, where you'll find the largest discounts we're ever able to offer! Take 33% off your order with discount code BUFFALOPLAID. You won't see these prices again for at least another six months, so snap up the savings while you can.

Red Pen Travelers Friday-Before-Black-Friday Sale 33% Off All Weekend

The whole weekend will be full of sale events. Follow on Instagram on Saturday afternoon for a flash sale of a whole year's worth of slightly imperfect notebooks at even steeper discounts (as much as half off!).

The Etsy shop will be restocked over the weekend with new ready-to-ship notebooks and will reopen on Sunday, November 19th. 

Then, look forward next week to a very special Thanksgiveaway! I can't wait.


An adjustment to the A5 size to better accommodate popular hardcover inserts such as Leuchtturm 1917 and Scribbles That Matter. If you're a bullet journaler, you will want to see this. Be sure to check out the new trifold option, too.

New elastic colors, including eye-popping ombre rainbow!

Larger alphabet stamps for free personalization. Simply indicate in your order notes if you want half-inch lettering instead of the default quarter inch alphabet.

More new goodies to come before the end of the year! 


The two-tone option is very labor intensive and outcomes are unpredictable, resulting in wasted leather and duplicated work when failed notebooks have to be created again. I'm retiring this feature by the end of this year, possibly on a permanent basis, but at least until I can develop a technique that gives consistently good results. Since this design option might not be returning, get it now if you like it. 

International shipping will also be discontinued in favor of parcel forwarding services. I know this won't be a popular announcement, and I'm very sorry to disappoint anyone; however, it's a necessary decision and one that's been a long time coming.  


Make sure you take a look at our very own curated list of small-batch makers and suppliers this holiday season. There's something for nearly everyone on your list, from kids to adults. I hope you find it helpful as you choose thoughtful gifts this year. 

If you're still on the fence about ordering a custom-made leather notebook, you don't have to take my word for it that they make amazing gifts. I know full well that I'm biased! But my customers aren't, and they'll tell it to you straight. Take a look right here and see for yourself what they think about their notebooks.

Let me know if I can make something special for YOU!

Travel light,
